Howdy, winter’s almost gone and I’m almost back.
Finally on the mend and starting to almost feel myself after this spinal disc fusion surgery thing. Long story short – it worked great and by the end of March I can probably start to carry my own amplifier again. Back to work in a week or so and back to a normal grind.
Speaking of backs…The band has had a few rehearsals and we will be back out playing shows again in March. We also have back to back shows at Bernice’s the 22nd and 23rd. then back to Honky Tonk BBQ for a Switchyard Sessions CD Release…See how I did that. All shows are FREE.
