Hmmmm.... Ain't been on here for ahwile, just tryin' to make it in this big 'ole world. Don't get me wrong I'm way blessed but time are tough in my trucking business. Still hanging in there so that's good, we will see what the Good Lord has in store as long as I do the footwork, all will be well I guess. Music is goin' ok, put in a bid to open for Gov't Mule, so y'all keep me in your prayers, that would be an awesome opportunity!! Lot's of good bands competing with me and the boys so we will see. Just got some gigs for Jan and Feb so that's great! We will be playin at Mad Donnas in E. NashVegas Jan. the 15th and Feb. the 5th, both from 10-12 pm!!

C'mon Google

Working on gettin' google to list this site, that would rule! Driving trucks is cool but sometimes crazy, trust me =] My main goal is to make it in music in anykind of way, then I could just drive the Pete' to the grocery store on Saturdays, I would like that a lot!!! Maybe someday somebody will check out this blog... I guess I'll have to dig deep, maybe share intimate parts of my life! Ok, here one bit of info for my future blog and music fans... I fuckin' love the Grateful Dead!! They are times when those guys have kept me alive. I love all kinds of music and bands but the Dead are at the top of my list. Freight Train Deluxe or Freight Train And Friends has moments when we jam that feel like we are hittin' that kind of of melodic, spacey, dynamic. I love when we click like that, of course we are a Blues based Rock band with the occasional Rockabilly and Country influence. I'm a big fan of Toe music, any type of music that makes my toe tap is my kinda' music, Bluegrass, Cajun, Zydeco, some melodic Rap, certain Techno, most Psychedelic Rock, Jazz, some Classical, Blues, County, Americana, Ravi Shankar type music, Pop, cool R&B, Funk, Folk, Alt Rock, Alt Country, Country Punk, Bebop, most definitely Swing, especially Western Swing, ok y'all get the picture!

What I'm up to lately

Been working hard on getting gigs, gettin' the 'ole Padded Room (my Peterbilt road tractor/big unit) into shape with some engine work, yes I do most of my own mechanic work, and a good washing! Looking forward to playing more and more gigs! My band rules, I'm so fortunate to have these guys backin' me up!!! We definitely got us a smoking lil' combo from the Guitar Town =]

Well the gig at The Listening Room Cafe went well. We were part of a 3 band show, the Ukedelics, an all ukele band, went on first. Then me and boys went on and rendered 3 of my originals, we all felt that it was one of our best performances! Then the fabulous Lynn Manderson and her top notch band closed the evening with her originals! I want to thank Lynn for putting me on the show and hope to collaborate more in the future.
