As always, I’m late to my own party. It has been 2 years since the last post.
As always, a lot has changed….
As always, there will be media in the form of audio or video. You’re in luck, i have both.
As always, I’m thankful for progression and memories.
2013 has been the year of all years. Im 26, turning 27 in July (im getting old). I’m fortunate to do what i do on a daily basis and have a blast doing it. I love my family, friends, and everything in between.
My favorite quote I have been using lately is “Max Out Life”. Why? as crazy as this world is…live life as if today is your last. I think I’m doing an awesome job of this lately…
Here’s a couple events that im definitely proud of, Enjoy!
“Singers and Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, they face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again. Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life – the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. Why? Because musicians and singers are willing to give their entire lives to a moment – to that melody, that lyric, that chord, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul. Singers and Musicians are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.” – David Ackert, LA Times
This is so rich, i had to share. I appreciate everyone that appreciates what WE as Musicians/Artist do on the daily to perfect our craft to be able to entertain the masses. Its a hard life, but we do it cause we love it. There are times we want to give up, but remember those smiling faces in the crowd that keep us in good spirits.
Thank you, David Ackert for acknowledging. You’re a good soul.
I must say that this band has taken to me to so many places around the Nation that i thought i’d never get to travel in my whole 26 years of existence. Being the youngest out of 5 guys and still feeling like i need to catch up has been an experience in itself. We performed in Key West Florida recently for the Jimmy Buffets “Meeting Of The Minds” festival. So much was going on that i can hardly remember, but it was definitely worth every minute! Being able to buy alcohol absolutely anywhere and everywhere, to being able to wander around the streets openly with it was definitely “Paradise on the Island”. We ate at the famous Pizza joint “Mr. Z’s” religiously…why? “Can i get a Calzone, and 2 Miller Lites to go please?!” Amazing to say the least. Here are a couple videos that i had taken while down there…
Im thankful for all of my opportunities and cant wait to see what the Universe has in store for me. I hope to return to Key West solo and be able to unintentionally sleep outside again, ha!
I’ve been performing with these guys for the past year and some change. I must say…i’ve learned that i definitely suck on bass, ha! E.C.’s music has changed my perspective of pocket and just all around showmanship!
We are releasing 2 EP’s coming very soon..until then. Here is a preview of one of the songs thats forthcoming..
Another road trip with them Plastic boys! Fun, entertaining and interesting all at once. We got new members!!
This trip we headed up to Philadelphia University and performed in front of 600+ students in a Cathedral. The acoustics were ridic!!
