Full Moon Energy, New Video, & Upcoming Performance

Big thanks to Jeff Ray for taking some phone-camera videos of Charlie and me last Saturday at the Yankie Creek Coffee House, here in Silver City, NM.

I’d like to share this video of my song about being away and coming “Home again.”  (Second song on the page)  Hope you like it!

The Waxing Gibbous Moon energy of the last week has kept us up late many nights and working most of Sunday redesigning my website.  I’m so excited about the changes (Thank you, Jean Ann~ ), I want to point out that my site’s now both more attractive with things easier to find, but we can now listen to recordings of my original songs and watch videos of some performances without leaving my site and having to deal with the quirks of YouTube and other sites.

I hope you’ll check out the rest of the site, “like” things, comment, share, and subscribe if you haven’t already.  Thanks ~  (You can unsubscribe, of course, at anytime.)

I intend to be more regular about posting.  I’m going to aim for one short post like this once a week.

Just to scan all the post titles on the right column of this site is a heady flashback to all the great shows and guests Jean and I hosted over 5 months on “Silver City Acoustic” (on our local community radio station, Gila-Mimbres Community Radio) – including Lloyd Maines (Grammy award-winning producer and phenomenal musician I’ve been admiring for decades) and Terry Hendrix (award-winning Texas singer-songwriter I’ve come to appreciate immensely) and many, many more amazing guests, local and touring, that we had the pleasure to meet.

Speaking of local and touring musicians, did you know our own, local, amazing bluesman Jammin’ Jeff used to tour with Bo Diddley for twenty-some years!?  Yeah!  What a great couple of shows we had with Jeff in the studio.  Hope to do it again.

Coming up:  this Saturday, I’ll play bass with friends, luthier and bluesman Scott van Linge and killer percussionist Rodney Henderson – as The Loose Blues Band9-11 am at the Farmer’s Market – one of the last markets of the year.

There are still tables piled high with the last of summer harvest, so don’t miss it!  Not only do you get to buy the best food available in our world, but then you can relax, enjoy some music, even dance, and reconnect with friends and acquaintances on this wonderful Harvest Moon weekend before we all huddle indoors for the winter!  It’s still nice to be outside on a Silver City morning!  Hope to see you there.

Quick look ahead:  Charlie Alfero and I, perhaps with guests, will be playing at Diane’s Parlor the last two Fridays of this month, the 24th and 31st (Halloween – costumes?), 6-9 pm.  Expect fun!
