We're already in February of 2014 and it's off to an amazing start! I opened 2014 doing a New Year's Eve gig with my son, Chris II and my "brothers" from Tops in Blue, Percy Lewis, Darry McEachin & Henry Roberson. My wife took the trip but decided to watch the new year come in with our grand daughter, Cady, while Erika, our daughter-in-law, attended the event.
Towards the end of January, my son and I took our trip to Anaheim, CA to attend the NAMM show. Although I didn't get to check out all the gear and vendors on my list, I got to catch up and solidify relationships with some great folks and new friends in the music industry. The high point of the trip was the quality time spent with my son. This is our fourth year and it's becoming an annual "tradition." Both of us can get so busy (not sure where he got that from), and we rarely have the time to talk that we'd like to. I managed to set my sights on the custom guitar I've been dreaming of.
Now looking forward to the events ahead, I'll be launching my own band within the next few weeks. I hope to finally get my solo CD finished before my birthday (end of March) and land opportunities to play with other great artists.
Thanks to everyone who continues to pray, encourage and support me and my musical endeavors!
