Phish was awesome last night at Alpine Valley in East Troy, Wisconsin. They jammed more than they have in years. They are really better than they ever have been. We had a blast and had perfect seats on the lawn.
On my song posting, I think today will be the last of instrumental week. I’ll be back home tonight and will be able to record some songs the old-fashioned way (with lyrics). This is a very mellow jammer, couldn’t you hear Sade singing over this?
The gig was fun last night. Nothing like rocking out with Mid-westerners, you just don’t get to do that enough in life. We’re headed to Milwaukee now, I haven’t been there since the eighties but I hear nothing but good things about it. Then it’s Phish at East Troy, Wisconsin tonight. That’s gonna be fun, especially since Chris and Chris have never seen them before. This is probably my fiftieth go round.
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.
