May 20, 2011, Day One

Wow! For what seemed like so very long, we were going to go on tour one day. Now, very suddenly, it’s that day. Don’t panic, I tell myself. It’s just the weekend thing, a sort-of trial run, up to Columbia, over to Springfield and home. The Blue Note tonight, Randy Bacon Gallery tomorrow and done. For exactly a week. Then it’s Denver, Salt Lake and points west. Of course we’re not ready. We’re as ready as we can get, but not really feeling rock solid. I figure that’ll come somewhere about Portland. Or not. Anyway, ready or not, here we come. See you on the road.

    The real question is, are Columbia, Springfield, and points beyond ready for YOU!

    I hope you all have a great trip with lots of fun stories to tell on your return. The Blue Note is a very good place to start–it’s one of the things I miss most about Columbia.

    Good luck and I know your audiences will love you. Have fun and tell us all about it on your return!

  3. It’s impossible to feel ready enough. The band will find its own version of its road legs. It should be a wonderful, crazy experience all around. You guys have really touched people with your music. I’ll never forget what Greg Raymer wrote on a note to himself when he was in the World Series of Poker final table. “Don’t forget to have fun.” He’d just take it out of his pocket and look at it once in a while, when the pressure was building. It’s good advice.
