Graphic Designer/Musician.

My six-week stint as a full-time musician is over. I'm back at the day job, which is not really such a bad place to be. As jobs go, I've got the best one I could hope to find.

Yesterday was my last show of the season at the Margate beach bar. BIG shout out to Mike B and Sara, who made it to EVERY ONE of my shows down there. Damned impressive; I almost didn't make it to all of them myself! (I was a little hungover after that redneck party in late July.) I'll be back at the Margate in 2010; we'll get the schedule set up in March.

I've still got a bunch of other shows on the books, of course. Nothing until Thursday though. I'll be back down in Tyngsboro MA, playing for the folks at Smokey Bones Bar and Fire Grill.

A Weekend With The Band.

No Limitz played on Friday and Saturday night, the first two-nighter we've done in a long time. We were at the Littleton VFW on Friday. John Moody always puts together a great show for us up there, and he certainly didn't disappoint this time. And Saturday was a gig at the Black Cat Cafe in Laconia. It amazes me how well we do in a room that small, but they just love us there, and they make it a great place to play. A guy named Bryan Conway got up and did a couple songs on keys, and he was amazing.

In other news, I've been twittering froom the road fairly often, so I added a feed to the rightbar over there. Now you can keep up on my junk food selections at gas stations and my annoyances at bad drivers right on this blog. Or if you are a twitterer yourself, you can subscribe and stuff.

Today is my last show at The Margate beach bar for the summer. Wow. And tonight I'm hosting the open mike at The Sunset Grill. C'mon out!

Checking in.

As advertised, it's been a very busy month. The shows have gone well for the most part. LAst night I played St. Patty's Day in August at the Country Cow, and it was great to dust off the old drinking songs. Here's what the rest of this week looks like:

Wed. 8/19, 2pm - The Margate Beach Bar, Laconia NH
Wed. 8/19, 7pm - Shooter's Tavern, Belmont NH
Thu. 8/20, 7pm - Private Party, Salisbury Beach MA
Fri. 8/21, 7:30pm - Elks Lodge, Littleton NH (with No Limitz)
Sat. 8/22, 8pm - The Black Cat Cafe, Laconia NH (with No Limitz)
Sun. 8/23, 1pm - The Margate Beach Bar, Laconia NH
Sun. 8/23, 7pm - The Sunset Grill, Campton NH

Nice to get a couple band shows in there. We'll be at the Meredith Yacht Club the following weekend too.

That's it for now. I'll try to be better about checking in on the blog. I'd hoped the time off from the day job would result in more frequent blog posts, but stuff always comes up, doesn't it? And I return to MegaPrint next Monday. Looking forward to it, actually. That and a nap.

The two weeks afterward are busier than that; details on those later. Or you can always check the schedule for an appearance in a lounge nowhere near you. :)

In other news, I did a little recording earlier this week. Nice to shake off the rust a little. I made some nice progress on the mixing/mastering end of things. I'll share some results soon.
