Hi Guys. I just got the Martin back from repair ready for this saturdays “Okoroire Blues Fest”. I always enjoy playing this festival. I will be opening the show at 12PM.
Had a great day visiting Kirk Sand at his shop in Laguna Beach today. Kirk pulled out some of his Beautiful Guitars for me to play including Lenny Breau’s old 7 String that he made for Lenny back in the 80s, And this Groovy Paul Yandell model! Also took a trip to Norman’s Rare Guitars in Tarzana yesterday where I came a across this nice modern Slot head Martin!.
Got into LA at 3pm after 30+ hours of no sleep yesterday afternoon. Sat my guitar down on the table threw a new set of strings on and got ready for the Tommy Emmanuel concert that night. Was great to see Tommy again and always fun getting to play together. Off to the NAMM show!
Currently sitting in Auckland Airport preparing myself for the 13 hour flight to LA for the NAMM show!. I’ll be preforming and hovering around the Santa Cruz Booth for most of the show so come and say hi if your in town. I’ll be in LA for a little while so if any of you want to get together while i’m in the US again please send me a message.
Just back from a intense weekend of gigging in Auckland. Nothing quite like getting out of one gig at 1 AM driving three Hours and having to play the next afternoon! Big thank you to everyone here and in the USA who came out to see me this year. First gig of the new year is on the 10th!. To all my California friends I’ll see you soon!. For all my record collecting pal’s here’s my score from real groovy!.
Nice quiet show at driver’s on Saturday!. Here’s a snap from the last blue’s jam of 2015!
