Crankshaft November Update

E-mail
crankshaftHello Everyone!
Rachel, Trixie and I all made it home safe and sound. Thanks again for the awesomely reliable tour bus, we didn't have any major breakdowns during the 4,635 mile trip around the east side of the country! The tour was amazing, we met so many awesome people out on the road, some of them even got me gigs for the nights I would have had off or before/after the shows that I had scheduled already! We left with 21 shows booked and picked up five extras making the total 26 in 30 days. During the second week of the tour I got a voice mail message from Bo Diddley's sax player, Nick Savage! He said he likes to hideaway in the venue that I was scheduled to play in Gainesville, FL. He saw my flyer on the wall and checked out my music videos online and loved them! I called him back and asked him if he would be willing to sit in for part of my set and he said he would love to! So that was super awesome! We also met Bob Log III, Red Morgan, and John L. Venable (who was a road manager for Atlantic Records signed bands for 25+ years) - who helped us get two of the additional shows. We got tons of offers for us to come back to the places I played and also met folks that said they would help me get better gigs if I come back through. We sold over 200 CDs while we were gone too! All in all it was a great success in both of our minds, and we even still love each other! BONUS!
The home coming show is this Sunday at the River City Saloon, Hope you can make it! The Live At The River City Saloon CD (Limited edition - only 500 pressed) release party will be the following weekend, November 13th. Hope to see you at a show soon! Until then, keep boogiein'!
