Kalamazoo, here we come!

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

Last August, Brian and I (as The Fabulous Heftones) performed at the Coopers Glen music festival in Kalamazoo. It was wonderful, and the crowd really responded to our act.

Well, this Saturday (just a few days away) we will be performing in Kalamazoo again. We will be at the Kalamazoo Fretboard Festival, at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum.

The event is from 10-4, and we will be singing at 2pm, followed by a basic ukulele workshop at 3pm. We will bring a few instruments for those who do not own a uke of their own, first come, first served… of course bring one if you have one.

I am tickled pink that our photo is on this poster next to Joel Mabus. Joel is such a master of so many musical things, and he has been prominent in the music business much longer than I’ve been playing bass. I regard him highly as a musician, songwriter, and human being.

It is an honor to play at the same event where Joel will be found. He will be doing a talk or two in the workshop rooms.

Also pictured on the poster is the Royal Garden Trio. We know these guys and jam together when we are lucky. And then there are all sorts of other folks who will be there but who are not pictured. It will be a great time, I’ve heard it was great last year and the organizers are great.

We have been interviewed by both Mark Wedel for the Kalamazoo Gazette and Andrew Kroll for the Western Herald (also in Kalamazoo, the WMU student newspaper). It seems that Kalamazoo is ready for a musical party of sorts. I really am looking forward to the day.

Perhaps someone out there will want to come? It turns out that Karla and I will be connecting there that day, as her hubby will be assisting at one of the workshops. Anyone else? Bring your instrument or your knitting, or both!

Uh-Oh!

pinkflag.jpgDoes anyone know what this means? It’s not as cute as a flamingo, though it’s brighter. It appeared sometime today on the corner of our lot, when I was looking the other way.

I think it means construction noise and a hole in my yard. Drat.
