Austin. 18-19 July 2009.

Austin, Texas is a very hot town this time of year... temperatures were in the triple digits during our recent visit there. Saturday the 18th was an extremely special occasion as we played the Kilgore-Karnes wedding just outside of town with yours truly as the best man. The setting was just incredible -we played outside under an old oak tree to many old and new friends.

Sunday the 19th we performed at Lake Travis' Iguana Grill. I can honestly say the people of Austin are very attentive when it comes to live music. I personally felt very appreciative performing for such an enthusiastic audience. Although I have always loved Austin, I now have a new appreciation for the local music fans there... thank you... we shall return soon.

Telluride. 10-11 July 2009. Bubble Lounge.

For those of you that know me well, you know that I am passionately in love with the village of Telluride, Colorado. My life changed there in 1991 when Bill Graham hired me to work stage production for his Mid-Summer Music Festival. That led to my working behind the scenes with the Grateful Dead in the years following.

I have only returned to Telluride a handful times since 1991 and every time I do I am reminded of the magical energy that town possesses. Last weekend was no exception. The Bubble Lounge is cozy little oxygen bar located next door to the legendary bakery, Baked In Telluride. 18 years ago I used to play my acoustic guitar on the Baked In porch.

The shows I performed last weekend were very fun acoustic shows for some really great people. On Saturday, I was joined by percussionist John "JB" Bunting. The show went on after KOTO's annual Doo-Dah concert in the park, which featured two bands I used to pomote back in my Gainesville days: George Clinton & The P-funk All-stars and Rusted Root.

I cannot wait until I can return to Telluride with the full band. I'm hoping it will be very soon. Meabwhile, I posted some great pictures of the area on my facebook page here: TELLURIDE PHOTO GALLERY

Next weekend: Austin, Texas... yeeeeehaw!!!
