I’ve been home just about two weeks from the last tour leg. We got pretty busy there for awhile and I apologise to anyone who came here looking for the inside skinny on the tour and found none. We did a great string of concerts throughout California, Oregon, Washington & Idaho. Among the highlights were an outdoor performance at “The Grotto” in Portland and JMT presenting Dan O’Neill with the Mother Teresa Award in Sammamish.
We leave again in just a week for the last leg of the year. It will be bittersweet in some ways as it will be our last tour leg with this band. While some of John Michael’s fan’s may welcome the return to his quieter solo concerts, and while it may be simpler to execute for us, I’ll still miss having all the guys with us. This really has been one of the best groups I’ve spent time with on the road. I’ll also miss the sense of accomplishment that comes from putting on a more complicated show, with a shoestring budget.
