Ghost Note Tour

Last month I spent 17 days on the road with Polyrhythmics, having played 13 shows, and on 11 of those shows we shared the stage with the band Ghost Note.  Although the road is always thought-provoking and eventful (in addition to a lot of work), it’s the sharing of the stage that’s prompting this post.

Updates/Podcasts

Hi all, I cleaned a bit of the Links page, adding websites for Ben Bloom, Westsound Recording, and Blue Mallard Studios, who I thank for the killer sounds on the most recent Polys 45. I also deleted old links and updated the link to Ethan Iverson’s blog, which I have rediscovered recently and am once […]

Possibilities

The Polyrhythmics tour to New Orleans and the Southeast, from Kentucky (or, as some call it, Kenpucky,) to Florida to North Carolina and beyond went relatively smoothly, with many new areas visited from both the band perspective and a personal perspective.  I enjoyed the cultures and people in the South so very much, and loved […]

Post 4

So we’re back home, in beautiful Seattle, but I have still have a ways to go in the tour.  I enjoy talking about it, and hopefully you guys enjoy reading about it, so I’ll keep going. Okay…with the end of the Phoenix show came one of our monster drives:  10 hours overnight to Telluride, Colorado. […]

Tour Blog 3

San Diego:  Our San Diego show was in the beach town of Ocean Beach, at Winston’s, where we’d played once before and had a really successful show.  Unlike last time, I went to the beach for a little while before we started, which was gorgeous!  A nice last look before we turned East.  Then I […]

Tour Post #2

Writing this in the backyard of Scott’s friend Josh, a saxophonist in New Orleans who is nice enough to put us up for the week.  There is a warm breeze and it is a sticky but beautiful 80 degrees, although it is kicking up a bit and there are some storm warnings. Some carryovers from […]

Tour Post #1

Okay, so I waited a little longer than I would have liked to post my first tour blog, but I’m going to try to give a quick rundown of our first couple of stops: Our first stop was at the Applegate Lodge in Applegate, Oregon, which was a great first show because we had played […]

April Excitement

I had a nice excursion North to Bellingham the last couple of days; Theoretics had a solid first Bellingham show at the Wild Buffalo, and I was able to spend the following day with Karl, drummer for the band Polecat, who the Polyrhythmics have shared bills and festivals with pretty frequently.  It was good to […]

Happy Holidays!

One of the many Love’s Truck Stops in the great state of Idaho: The end of this year has been punctuated with tours to Los Angeles and Montana, as well as working with new recordings and new musical ideas. I’m still trying to find a sound and approach that I can consistently use in all […]
