The 3 Out in the Street

The 3 take to the street to play “Tonight We Ride”. It is an original tune. Rockin the streets of Glen Ellyn, uh huh. Thanks to Mark for the video capture.

The 3 Band

Beautiful day to play outside.

The band is now called The 3. We played a set at a block party in Glen Ellyn last Saturday. Had a lot of fun. It was a perfect day.

Life experience equals song ideas

It has been a rough summer on a personal level, breakup, move out, son gone for 45 days. As always song ideas flow from the places I’ve been.

You’ve been a bitch to me all night long

Can’t wait to see you

I’ll let you know where it goes, hope to have some rejoicing and party songs coming!

Black Daddy is working on a CD

We have been recording for a couple of weeks. And you can hear some of our first results here. Using my Mesa Boogie 1 x 12 amp for this project. It is sounding pretty large. Set up in a closet two rooms over to get some separation and keep out the bleed through.

In addition, we wrote a little song for the Bulls playoff run. Our first show at the end of February was in Highland Park. The Bulls coach of the year candidate was there for our whole set. So we decided to write a song since I have been a huge Bulls fan for years. This has been a fun year for Bulls fans.

Vibe show was excellent

Black Daddy rocks Vibe

Black Daddy played their first show at Vibe in Highland Park on the 26th of February. Did a set of originals. Great crowd. Driving the Daisies had a CD release that night and Just Groove played a set of super funk.

Too much fun. Soon as I can get my hands on some video I’ll put it up.

Where I’ve been

Finally got a bass player and a bonus. He’s really good!

My last side project fell apart when two of the players moved to opposite coasts. And it was just getting good. This is a better situation. Buzz on drums, I’m playing guitar and Mark Tulloss on bass. Buzz and I have played together almost forever. Mark picks up a tune he’s never heard incredibly fast. Looking to play a back-up set of original material any time. We have the tunes together. I’m excited!

Writing a lot of music lately

25 June, 2010 (15:03) | The rock music | No comments

Been silent here for a while, working on a bunch of new songs. I was working with a band. But as bands go, two of the guys are moving, one to LA and one to Florida. So I am looking again. But did get a lot of practice time in and writing both. My playing is coming around.

I’ll get some of the music up as I can.

Time for some new drawings too.
