Life in the air, at home and on the road... Welcome to my blog.

Transformation Tuesday - The 5 year edition. 

June 3rd, 2014.
I'm just now realizing how something in my life has come full circle... 

June 3rd, 2009 was the day that my sax hero passed on to the other side. Sam Butera was one crazy wailer on that sax. My favorite thing was how he could just rip that sax apart and make it sound so wild, yet you knew that he had such control over it. I aspire to be as good as him one day and hope to continue to create the kind of music that brings smiles to the people just like he and Louis Sr did.

In the meantime, enjoy this video I took on our train ride from Chicago to Milwaukee.


 

Rain or Shine, This Train Keeps on a Rollin'! 

It's Friday night and as I sit here thinking about these first two days, I can only get more excited knowing how much better things will get. We played our first show last night in Saddle River, New Jersey. For those of you that don't know about this... Our regular bassist, Mikey Bones, is in the hospital recovering and getting back to his strong self.

Mikey, we love you and I hope this time off will allow for a true healing and recovery.

With Mikey unable to make this tour, I had called my buddy, Steve

Day 1... The flightmares through the storms. 

  Well, yesterday was quite a day for our band here. Through all the delays and cancellations the worst part was when we arrived to New York at 2am and get our bassists bass from the "oversized" luggage area and he immidiately feels that the case is wobbly. He opens it up in front of one of the agents and he sees that the neck is snapped broken. Mind you, we have a sound check to get to in about 12 hours from this moment... Thankfully, the agent was there to witness it and we've begun the process of getting…

Try saying this the "proper" way. ;) 



Greetings from London! I'm writing this update on day 3 of this London Experience!
This afternoon I will be making my way down to The Rockabilly Rave.

I must say, these first two days have been nothing short of an amazing experience that I will never forget. From the moment I arrived in London, I've been fortunate enough to have met and interacted with the kindest of Londoners! From the Customs Agent at Heathrow to the dancers at the Savoy Tup on Tuesday night.…
