This is crazy. It is 7 degrees and snowing right now. And at night it is like 10 below. I love Colorado, but this a bit much for me. Even the dog has frozen paws. The year is wrapping up and I am feeling good about the last few months. The road was a bit of a trial at times, but nothing could stop the music. The band was really finding its groove. Somewhere in all that chaos we were able to bring out the best in all of us. It was reminiscent of the early Cheese days with the late night drives and the exhausted load-ins and we would play the shows as hard as we could because every show counted.
I have a few more gigs before this year is out. I am hitting the Front Range one more time this weekend. First I head to the mountains to play in Breckenridge, then down to Denver, and finally up to Ft. Collins to do "A Holiday Folly for Charity;" a special benefit show for the Food Bank for Larimer County with New Belgium Brewing Company. The “rock and brew” tour ends as it began with a special beer I made with a choice brewery. “Kyle’s Imperial Winter Ale” will be served at the show. I will actually be playing in the brewery itself right next to the huge brew kettles. Should be pretty cool.
On January 2nd I hit the high seas on Jam Cruise. Not only with my band, but also with The Motet, playing the amazing Talking Heads show!! Nice way to start the new year…. Then I hibernate for the winter. Ahhh sleep
