Friday night, me & the guys had a surprise chance to open for the rad band Particle. Um, holy crap! It was great, we really enjoyed it. What a novelty, to play at a club that has a real backstage room.
Saturday during the day I got to play on "Smokin' Joe's Roadhouse", a show that's broadcast live on KPFT from the Rhythm Room. That was fun. I got to meet two of the folks behind the excellent web site JazzHouston.com ... Kelly Dean, a local sax player, and Andrew Lienhard, a pianist who has been living in New York for a number of years but is now back in the Houston area (Bellville, specifically). Andrew snapped this shot of me during the show:
Sunday found me relaxing at home with Uberjam, and then hosting my regular show on KTRU. I had the band Drop (from Boston ... not Drop Trio) on as guests and it was a fun old time.
Now I'm back at work and the realities of being a work-a-day stiff are settling back in. I'm off to the gym. Whee. :)
