Been busy in the rehearsal spaces around Vancouver over the last few months getting my chops back on the guitar, and backing singers David Morin, Randy Ponzio, and Janet Panic.
Well this week I am driving with Janet out to Edmonton to perform at the Utopia Music Festival performing Friday June 17th with Ani Difranco at the Heritage Amphitheater in Hawrelak Park. Doors at 6pm.
I am little worried as Janet and I have been getting together once a week for a month but the drummer I have never met and is flying in from Toronto for the show, I am working at the club tonight (the 14th till) 2:30am, we are hitting the road after that in hopes of making the 1,195 km drive in time to get a day of rehearsals in before the concert on Friday. That said I am happy to get on the road and out for the city for a bit even if it’s just to go to another city the drive will be fun.
For the the new bands I am playing in I bought a nice nifty little foot pedal by Boss the ME-25 cosm retails for $199. here in Vancouver at Long & McQuade.
See ya in Edmonton.
Some videos here.
Update: well like I said we rehearsed for a month to backing tracks, but as you see in the video there was no backing tracks, the tour manager for Ani told us we where not allowed to use them an hour before we hit the stage.
