The Travel Madness Begins

"The Travel Madness Begins"

My performance at Ferris State University on February 14th is the first of about 30 college shows -within a two month time span. In March, almost every week I have five college shows. On top of that, I'll be filling in the holes with clubs, coffeehouses, house concerts and anything else I can. The madness has begun.

I am a little nervous, since earlier this week I was in an accident that left my tour vehicle (my trusty Chevy S-10) TOTALED. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but now I am a little over a week away from leaving and I have no car. The rental I have right now is pretty sweet... but at $63 a day (plus about $80 to gas up) I'm gonna need something a tad more practical. Needless to say, I have begun a new full time job: CAR SHOPPING.

I'm sure that everything will work out just fine. I am really excited about the next two months! I have met some of the most interesting people over the last two years of playing at colleges. The coming weeks I'm sure will bring new friends and a bunch of new stories to tell. Thanks for reading! I look forward to sharing my tour tales with you.

Here's where I'll be performing in the next few weeks. If you're nearby, come and say hi.
