Wow! SXSW was incredible this year. I met Arlo Guthrie for one! Bruce Springsteen gave the keynote speech and performed! Met alot of great folks from the ceo of reverbnation to the owner of The Roxy in LA.
I played in Lakeway, Tx at Busters BBq and absolutely loved Bill and Jennifer Stroud, also a party for the great folks at evernote.com at a venue on 6th and Trinity in Austin. Tx. called The Lodge. Everyone was there to have a good time! I also saw and met some other great artist like Dr. John, Jon Cleary, Jimmy Cliff and Celeste Prince. Just to mention a few! Right now im in a great little place in Beaumont, Tx. called The Logon Cafe, which is a great stop on my way to the Cigar club in Lake Charles, La. Which is where I play tomorrow. I'm a little over halfway through my tour and still excited! That's unusual.. My partner in crime during this event was Mr. Mike Butler, the entertainment director for LuLu's Homeport Marina in Gulf Shores, Al. Which is owned by Lucy Buffet, who is the sister of the great Jimmy Buffet. We made some life long friends and some really good contacts. This has been one of the best tours I have had in a long time! Definitely gonna do it again, so if you know anyone on the route that would be interested in having me play the next go around please let me know and Ill try to add the venue on the next trip. I finish the tour in Gulf Shores, Al. at LuLu's and Joey's Northshore Grill on Sunday the 25th, then head to Troy, Al. where I play the Half shell and The Front Porch. Then I finally get home to see my girl! Can't Wait! (and Willie)(I guess Jack and molly too!).
