Just when you think you’re out of ideas.

So I’ve been worried lately with whether I could get another band off the ground and running before life catches up with me and makes is almost impossible. However, by taking a trip to a small music store earlier this week, there is hope for this idea yet. I went to a great local music shop, Redphish Music, on Monday afternoon with prospects of seeing my old friends Travis and Dane, always slumped behind the counter, always talking of bigger and better plans. As predicted they were there, slumped as they will ever be, waiting for an inkling of business to trickle in. As we caught up from the week, me and Dane grabbed a couple guitars off the wall and began to fiddle with them. As any musician knows, this snowballed into a jam session to the point that I was late for my evening class at the local community college! Another friend and haunt of the business filmed us, and quickly has both videos on the internet. As me and Dane looked back at the material, we realized how much wasted potential there is in our playing together. It was with this spark that we discussed him retrieving his equipment from Indiana, and the two of us beginning another band. This could be the beginning of something great- two seasoned players from two different backgrounds collaborating solely for the art of music. This Saturday we will be reviewing old materials from records’ past that never made it to the final cut, discovering new sounds, and maybe even writing a few new ideas. Just when you think you’re out of ideas, everything gets dropped on its head, and you start from scratch.

Happy Recording!
