Hello and welcome to Tidbits the October 2011 edition. Kick back, turn on some of my music and enjoy.
Last month was busy with the last four shows of the tour, giving lessons, working on the new web page design, composing songs, and more. This month should prove to be another busy and exciting month.
After three months the summer tour is now finished, it was a lot of hard work, but a lot of fun as well. The tour started a couple days before Summer began and ended a couple days after Summer ended. From the Pacific Northwest to the Southwest desert, over 3100 miles driven, 11 shows and 8 cities, an experience I will happily reflect on in the future. I made new friends, new fans, and exposed my music to those that have never had the chance to hear my music before.
Last month I performed the last four shows of the tour. Two in Salt Lake City Utah one in Flagstaff Arizona, and one in Ivins Utah. Both of the Salt Lake shows went very well, the crowds were very enthusiastic and appreciative. I was able to share my music with many new fans at these two shows, and even was asked for my autograph from several fans, which I was happy to provide..
The show in Flagstaff was at a beautiful venue, Bookmans Entertainment Exchange. I performed to a quiet crowd who enjoyed their beverages as they surfed the net. While this crowd was quiet, after the show they were quick to come up and compliment my music. This show was one of my best performances of the tour.
The last show of the tour was held in an outdoor venue in Ivins Utah, this was a truly beautiful venue, with wonderful red rock surrounding the venue, this was one of my favorite places to play on the tour. This crowd was very appreciative, and once again I made some new friends and some new fans.
Now that the tour is finished, I am going to spend some time working on a couple web sites, and doing a major overhaul of this one. I will also be creating a mobile app, and a tool bar, more ways for you to stay in touch with all my latest news and information.
I am also going to spend some time composing and arranging songs for the next album. I am hoping to begin the recording process shortly after the first of the year. I am getting excited about my new music, and can't wait to share it with you.
As you know last month I introduced a RSS feed, which I stated at that time was in the experimental stage. Well the original feed as well as the second feed were both accidentally deleted. I have created another feed, I hope that this one will be the final one, so you can begin to subscribe to this feed. Content will be slow at first, but should increase over time.
October has always been one of my favorite months. Or as I like to say Rocktober. Rock music has always been one of my favorite types of music, so I always like to celebrate the genre in the month of October. To help with this celebration I have a special song in the download section this month. Something different, something to celebrate Rocktober. However if you have been reading this newsletter for the last several years then you already know that in this special month I always provide you with a download that is experimental, electric, and something that rocks. This years download is no different.
