I must be ready for a vacation. I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately. I am going to a few places this summer but they’re a ways off. Today’s song is about getting out of town and names a few of my favorite places to go, Chicago, Vegas and San Diego. I’ll be going to Chicago next month actually, to play golf and see Iron Maiden in concert. Hopefully I’ll go up and see Phish again in August at Alpine Valley. Now it seems that I’m dreaming up new vacations when I haven’t actually gone on any of the ones I have planned yet.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
