Good morning. it has been a little while since my last post and we have some things to report. First off... the baby. we were to be doing the C-section on May 21 only to find out that the doctor is out of town that day so it has been pushed back to May 22, which is also my nephew Evan's birthday.
Second, my new band 4play is opening for Blammo this Saturday at Gubi's! i am so excited to be back out on the "curcuit", if i may call it that. this is the only thing that is scheduled at this point but with the kid coming, i think that will do it for a little while.
Third, i took my snare to Doug for a fine tuning and review. Doug was very impressed and deemed it a $500 snare. he seemed very impressed and gave me some ideas that he thought would only improve it with head changes. it was nice to have someone else play it (that is a drummer) and be able to hear it from out front. it really shocked me how good it sounded. it instatly became the best snare that i own. the heads that he recommended i change to are the same heads that i have on Peanut Butter. as Doug was talking about the finish he said that it looked like a roll of Pennies so it has been named "Penny" for that reason.
Next, the invites are aired out today for Rob's bachelor party. they went out via e-amil for the May 12th Robapalooza. the Rob Lastinger Freedom Festival, good times to be had. the wedding is the 2nd of June which brings me to my next perk....
June 2nd Rob and i are going to run in the Sunburst Festival in a 5k that ends in Notre Dame Stadium. then we will go get him hitched. this is going to be done with my friend / vendor Jon Helmuth from Genesis Products. We are dressing up so we will have to get our thoughts together for what we will be dressing as. this is going to rock.
Till next time.....B.
