It has been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to sit down and share my journey with you.
My early February foray into promotion was a disappointment and to say we had a poor turnout would be putting it mildly. Live and learn, I suppose.
Carole and I had a great time at “The Farm” near Brooksville, Florida the weekend of the 16th of February. It was cold however and that did dampen the enjoyment a bit. Met some new friends and got to share a few songs during my 25 minute set. Quite unexpected was to receive a CD of my performance just minutes after leaving the stage!
We stayed over Saturday evening in a motel in Brooksville where Highway 50 crosses I-75 and made a lesiurely drive down Hwy 50 eastbound into and across Orlando to Fordor’s Grove where I helped set up and run sound for some talented folks that afternoon.
Since then I’ve had so much to do with work, my side business, and projects around Rancho Cammack that I have not devoted much time to performing.
As I type this, I am less than an hours work from completing the rebuild of my homebrew PA unit. I’ve also sold off my old mixers and acquired a brand new for 2013 Behringer Xenyx QX1202USB mixer. It is a superb piece of gear with four mic channels with one-knob compression, 32-bit FX built in, and stereo USB interface for recording. I’ve only listened to it through headphones, but it sounds good. I’m looking forward to hearing it through the re-engineered PA system and recording with it as well.
There is also a brand-new K&K Pure Mini pickup set awaiting install in the Mitchell. It’s my next project once the PA is buttoned up.
Expect some new songs soon!
