July 25th “I See Drunk People”

One of the constant forms of entertainment and dismay for working musicians like myself is the drunk people you encounter from night to night.   Usually the one’s that are already drunk before you start playing are the one’s to look out for.  Then you have my favorites, the one’s that stand in front of the stage and play air guitar all night.  Those guys are cool.  Alcohol brings out the fresh dances moves too.  That being said, I’ve gotten the same response out of people at non-alcohol events like churches and community events too.  Maybe I should change it to I see “Krunk” people.

June 24 “Tall Dark and Good for Nothing”

We seem to be getting a lot of requests at our shows for line dancing songs.   Of which, we really haven’t had anything popular to play.  Undoubtedly, that’s something we really need to work on.  You know we love to please our peeps.   Anyway, that’s what prompted me to just write one for us to play.  That’s how “Tall Dark and Good for Nothing” got started.  It’s in that line dance, blues shuffle tradition (a beat I have no experience playing on drums).

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!   Have a great day!

June 23 “Me and You on the Floor”

Here I go again with the raps.   I may have created a monster..  I realize my flow is pretty 1992 (or ’87 for that matter).   But what are you gonna do, it’s pretty fun to do actually.   We all want to be a rapper at some time or another in life.  Rapping is very cool  because you focus  on the lyrics more than the melody.    That also frees you up to do rhythmic stuff with words and use them like a percussive instrument.

Or in my case, just to be silly.    Thanks for listening!

Feb 13 “Sooner or Later”

Snowed in again today.   The snow this year has been massive.   I hate it for all my friends in the golf industry.

Reem’s Creek, the course I play a lot has been closed for months.

Anyway, that has nothing to do with today’s song.  I actually wrote music for four songs, playing the drum parts and everything but this is the one I ended up putting words to.

“Sooner or Later” ended up being an old soul sounding song about getting someone who’s had their heart-broken, back out to meet people again.
