Last weekend’s show with Monkey and Los Hooligans was freakin’ awesome. We managed to squeeze on stage at the Starry Plough and had a great time. It was great to have a new addition, Mike, our new trombonist with us. They’ve made some improvements to the club itself and the sound guy, Cody made sure we all sounded good, and the bar staff are alway friendly there. The Plough really is one of my favorite places to play.
Sunday was spent visiting family for Easter. It was nice to slow things down and visit. The highlight was an impromptu recital of trio pieces written by Angela’s uncle and performed by her Dad on flute, her cousin on bassoon and his girlfriend on oboe.
This Saturday the 29th is the CD release party for the Phenomenauts. I’m thinking of going to check out the show at Slim’s. Earth Hour also occurs on Saturday from 8-9pm in your local time zone. People around the world will be turning off their lights for the hour to raise awareness about energy conservation. So, I could choose to go to this show or sit in the dark 🙂
