I’m currently sitting in Hollywood, Florida at a Starbucks and catching up on all of the e-mails that have been rotting in my inbox. Ya’ll know I’m on tour, right??? ;-P For those of you who haven’t received your kickstarter rewards yet, I promise that I haven’t forgotten. I’m working on catching up! November should bring about the last few that I haven’t finished. (You have to understand, I didn’t know that I’d be writing 7 songs or recording 40+ videos and having to learn songs nobody but you have ever heard of…. :-P)
I played sort of a “Last Minute” show at Waldo’s in Vero Beach last night. Tricia, a friend of mine from @PRDivas and Love Gone Apparel hooked up the show for me. Sometimes people say, “Come play my city!!” and it’s not as easy as you probably think it is. First off, most booking peeps in cities have NO ACCOUNTABILITY, meaning that they can choose who they want to book, and not e-mail back other people. So I’ll send out an e-mail, and never hear a response…. then I’m left wondering if it went to spam, if they weren’t interested, etc… Sometimes, I’ll even get an e-mail a week after I played the city, and they’ll be like, “Hey, did you still want to play??” and I’m like… “Really???” sigh… Where’s the musical HR department??? Well, Tricia was the kind of fan/friend who actually stepped up, went to a venue, told them about me, asked for the date and got me booked. (How can you say “No” to that???) I realize not everyone can do that, but if you wanna get me to come and play a show, this is a pretty sure-fire way to get me there! I’m fairly easy to get a hold of, as many of you notice… 😛
Waldo’s was great, the staff was awesome, and my Fishman Acoustic Amp sounded fabulous in the venue! (I don’t use the word “fabulous” very much… so… note that….) Lee, the manager let me stay in his time share which was on the 4th floor of the hotel. We raced up there as the rain was pouring right after the show, so I didn’t get a good look, but this morning, the view was breathtaking!!!
It was awfully terrible leaving Vero Beach, but Miami isn’t so bad. I guess I’m not “technically” in Miami, but close enough, right? 🙂
Welp, if you know anyone in the Hollywood/Miami, Florida area, please send them out to the show tonight! OH! And Mark from Butterflies Radio (@AllIndie) booked me this gig. Do you see a pattern? 🙂 Suggesting venues helps, but it still doesn’t guarantee that they’re gonna book me… sigh…
Well, that’s all I got… that… and LOVE FOR YA!!! MWAAAAAAAAAh!!!!! (Okay… I need more sleep… or less coffee….) 🙂
