Southwest tour underway

Greetings from Amarillo. We are readying for our third night out in the southwest playing American Rock & Roll shows to lively crowds in New Mexico and Texas. You'll see some of the guys from Fortunate Son ( tribute to CCR) below at the Texas border. As we drove in to town, we caught some rather well done ads for our show on the radio and listened to callers winning tickets for the concert. So far both theaters we played in were nice. In Carlsbad, the hall was like a mini Gibson Amphitheater. And yesterday in Lubbock, the Civic Center felt like the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.

We stopped in to the Buddy Holly Museum this morning, and I got chills looking at a pair of his iconic glasses that they recovered from the plane wreckage that he was likely wearing. What a tragic loss...

It's a privilege to be out here making music in these great cities.
