An Eventful Weekend

So I've tried to keep myself pretty busy the last few weeks now that I've been doing music full time. Recording and doing some weekend touring. This past weekend may have been a bit overkill. Two cd releases in two days. One in St.George, The other in Salt Lake City.

I drove down to STG Friday morning, stopping in once in Provo for some "Cafe Rio" and then Cedar City for one of my favorite "FREAL"milk shakes. I showed up to the venue (Jazzy Java) around 530pm. To my suprise it was a really nice venue. They had a great set up and it sounded great. I opened for Dave Krietzer (www.myspace.com/davekreitzermusic ) and it was a really fun show and I was able to meet a lot of new people. There should be some footage up really soon of the show as well. I will be playing many more shows with Dave in the future. I spent the remainder of the night hanging out at Iceberg and consuming chicken fingers,onion rings and even more milkshakes. Even though they weren't really milkshakes...they were ice cream in a cup.

The next morning I took off for Salt lake City after participating in a easter egg hunt. I loaded into the Rose Wagner Theater not knowing what to really expect. It was honestly the nicest venue I have played to date in Salt Lake City. It was a real theater with red curtains, gorgeous design and all the works. I had the pleasure of opening for one of my favorite local artists Josh Rosenthal (www.myspace.com/joshrosenthal). It was an amazing show and this was my favorite SLC show to date. I hope to play with him more in the future. He is an inspiration to me and I look up to him in so many ways.

My buddy Chad Braithewaite (http://www.faces-photo.com/) came by and took some new photos during and after the show and it rounded off a perfect evening. I've never really had pictures capturing Salt lake City so well. I'm so blessed to have such a talented friend. I got back late and just crashed on my couch and watched "Into The Wild". Good Times

Hi. A few years back I was at a little music store in the Southtowne mall called "Local," and they really recommended your CD "Some Place New" which I purchased. I have really enjoyed it - and I was excited to see that you've got music up on iTunes now too. That's awesome. On your "official website," I noticed you have several out of print albums, and I was wondering if there is any way I could get a hold of the music from them. Have you ever thought of putting your stuff on eMusic? I love eMusic, and I think it might be a good venue for your older, out of print stuff. It's just a thought.
