Happy 2008! On December 30th, I was playing a little open mic night at Aurora in Newport Beach when I received a phone call from my friend Ken Garica. He wanted to know if I was available to play on New Year's Eve at The Coach House. The first thing that crossed my mind was, "how the hell am I going to sell a bunch of tickets in one day??" (you have to sell tickets when you play at The Coach House).
Before I could say that, he said, "you don't have to sell any tickets because it is already sold out. We are opening up for Dick Dale
, and the night needs someone to start it out with a solo acoustic set".
Me: Awesome. Yes.
So on New Years, I rolled up to The Coach House, walked on stage, rocked out for a half hour to a packed house, and then still made it to the parties I was planning on going to!
It was an awesome way to end the year. I am really looking forward to 2008. 2007 was not the greatest of years for me, and there is a lot in store for this year! Including some new songs, and I am beginning work on a live DVD with my band with SongCheck Live
Stay tuned and I wish you all a very happy new year!
