Looking forward

 We are winding down in 2015.. forgive the cliche. :{)   Anyhow , what can be said , it was a good year for us musically. We did a pretty decent job of " Getting out there " and gained a lot of great experience and met a lot of totally cool and creative people. I personally made quite a few new friends and I can honestly say i'm not the hermit of days past. ( is that good or bad ? ) 

One highlight for us in 2015 was getting some play time on Wisconsin Public Radio's show "Simply Folk" that airs every Sunday evening. Not surprisingly, they chose to play the song "North on 51" -- the title cut from the CD we released. 
With all the live shows we played , consequently , my writing production has dropped way off. However , some new songs  did make it to the set list... I'd have to pause a moment to recollect exactly which ones.. but  there is a list of song titles ( with all musical ideas mentally noted ) on my office wall at the shop ( the place where I now write and record ) and I fer sure will get to them soon enough !
Next on the list of musical stuff to do.. I want to finish some new tunes and polish some oldies from the archives which have never been done live. In addition, I really want to add some enhancement /sound production, to the live show. This is going to require lots of experimenting and rehearsal time , yes ... time  ..a thing that has been in short supply due to my work schedule. I have begun this recently. Im particularly looking forward to implementing the " Looper Pedal " I picked up last summer ( Have yet to take it out of the box )

 As for recording.. boy oh boy.. there is so much I need to record. This is probably my number one bucket list item. I might try to record and self produce some of this due to " Budgetary Constraints ". The live CD we put out was a charm. It has made it easier to book gigs and from the feedback we have gotten so far it is an entertaining listen. One thing is sure , the next CD will be a studio effort . we will take more time with production and mixing.

 We are booking new shows now after a break and have a few new ones posted at this writing. 

 Well... its Monday night.. Joycie's on the way home with pizza.. Monday night is usually pizza and movie night. I hope for good things for all in the New Year !

 Talk again soon... Bill
