What can I say? It’s crunch time. We are headed into the studio today, Sunday to finish up Block Party and there is a deadline looming overhead. I want a finished product to take Kindiefest. All of the heavy lifting has been done. The songs are recorded. Now we need to add vocals, guitars, sax, etc. The parts that make the song sing! (funny no?) We have 6 songs completed and 6 to finish. Hoping all goes smoothly but things never do. Then when we finish we need to mix and master it. Most important is to do it right. While the CD won’t be released till Mid Summer I would like to have preview copies for people at the conference. But only if it’s right. So Alton, Pete, John and Frank shall be working to finish the CD. That is the goal we shall see if we can get there. There is excitement in the air!
I shall be performing at the “Circus Circus” – Kids Carnival & Charity Bake Sale. Entry is free and all money raised is going to Share Our Strength’s “No Kid Hungry” campaign. I shall be performing solo acoustic at 10am and 11:30am. There will be lots to do with performances by Super Stolie, Mary Macaroni, and storytellers as well. Check out the link above for more info and be sure to come on out for a good cause Saturday, April 13 from 10am till 3pm.
Kindiefest. A wonderful event with really great people and lots of information to learn. You get out of it what you put in. People are enthusiastic, nice and occasionally you might learn a thing or two from a panel talk. Best of all it’s a chance to meet old friends, make new ones and connect with a whole group of people who understand what kindie music is. On the down side it is not cheap to go to New York and to take the time away from famil requires a loving wife (Thank you dear). So it takes a little doing to go. But is it worth it? Well I am promoting a new CD (hopefully finished before I go) and the people who hire and promote what I do are going to be there. Plus the chance to hear some great bands, talk to fellow professionals and attend panels talking about how to better do what we do. So I think so. But only time will tell and a lot of that is up to me. Now excuse me I gotta go finish an Album!
