You know your friends love you when they bring you the XL tub of roasted frozen green chili from the Frontieer! John flew in for the show at McCabes Sunday morning with 56 oz. of love packed in his suitcase. And a special treat for my girls- Cow Patties!
Our hero, Richard Fultineer had drums to loan John for the show! Thank you Richard!!! He needed to drop them off at 9 am, which is before McCabes opens and right when John’s plane was arriving. I dropped Daniel off with coffee, a cajon to sit on and his coronet, so he could practice his licks while awaiting hand-off . Revilee for the neighborhood.
We had a great show, and are happy to report that the Kickstarter campaign is now in full swing! You can pre-order the CD or book us for a kid’s party with your pledge… even download a single song! Check it out HERE! I am touched by the first donors who have jumped in. So many folks from the Kindie world are showing support, and it means the world to me. Every pledge brings me a smile of gratitude and gets us that much closer to getting this baby pressed.
We had some crazy rehearsals for the tour (FYI- the canjo will be in heavy rotation this spring) and ate through the whole tub of chili in under 4 days. We visited preschools, saw the ocean, walked the Venice canals, visited LACMA, drank beer and cooked amazing meals. Now I can’t wait till the tour starts in 2 weeks!
But first I will be taking a detour up to Northern Cal for the West Coast Ukulele retreat, teaching and playing for a week at Asilomar State Beach. Lots of work, but also kind of a vacation.
I’ll tell you all about it, stay tuned.
