What a GREAT show last night in O’Fallon, MO. By far the BEST crowd in the whole tour…so far 🙂
It was the 4th of July and they were there to celebrate Independence Day in all it’s glory.
I got this great footage from my #GoPro on my Bogner Shiva Amp last night and had to share it!
Little insider fun facts:
At about 2:15 I disappear…I actually got up on the drum and keyboard riser to hang with Jason and Michael.
Then, at 3:08, I got off our stage and went to hang with the Sign Language Interpreter in her area…she was
more than a little surprised 😛
At 4:18…I look at my tech Tyler and let him know I need guitar picks for the fans, to which he responds by giving me
a bag of them at 5:18 while taking my guitar from me.
There ya have it!
I encourage you to watch it in Hi res and listen with headphones to Patrick Bojanic’s great sound engineering!
So, last night we had a show in Pueblo, CO. Small town with a lot of hungry fans for good music.
It was a nice evening and I was trying to decide where to put the GoPro for the night…as you can see,
it ended up by bridge of my Swamp Ash Les Paul.
I also put a cam/mic up by the FOH sound booth in order to capture the great sounds Patrick Bojanic
was mixing for us.
At about 15 seconds in, I tried to pose for a little photo bombing…not sure if I made it into the picture
because I had to start playing 😛
Would love to see the pic if it’s out there!
Solo is at 1:37.
OK…enjoy….I gotta go get to sound check in Arvada, CO.
Have a great day.
First off, make sure you watch this in hi res for full effect and keep the volume a bit lower since
you’re listening to STAGE volume…pretty loud 🙂
So here are a few funny things about this video –
You’ll see about 30 seconds in that I’m looking back at my rig. What I’m looking at is my RJM Effects Gizmo unit to see if it’s getting MIDI and changing my sounds.
I see the unit isn’t getting my MIDI Program change commands so I call my awesome guitar tech Tyler Dragness to come over. As he comes over, you can hear him sing “More baby” with me and crackin’ me up!
I tell him what’s going on and he goes to check it about a minute into the vid.
At about 1:22 I’m cheering up our Sound Engineer and Tour Manager Patrick Bojanic by chanting “Go Paddie, Go Paddie” into
my mic (you can’t really hear it, but HE can) 🙂
Around 1:35, I check that what Tyler did worked, and it did…apparently he had just put the MIDI cable into the output rather
than the input, causing a little mixup (as he tells me at 2:30).
At 1:59 I royally screw up and make a stupid face 😛
And that’s about it folks 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the insight into the sound check and hearing “Can’t Get Enough of You baby” in a more…special way.
Hey everybody 🙂
Man, it is NOT easy to edit all the content that I have on the bus.
But since I’ve got a few hours in a hotel room, here ya go…some cool footage from my GoPro of the song
“Getaway Car” form our our summer tour 2015 featuring “Tonic“, “Toad The West Sprocket” and “Smash Mouth” 🙂
Enjoy…and give me some ideas of cool spots for the Go Pro 🙂

After a great show in Hawaii (Kauai actually) and a show down here in SoCal (Beaumont,CA) last night with my Smash Mouth boys,
I got this nice article written by Abigail Klein Leichman of ISRAEL21c – A Focus Beyond.
Well, I’m back from Israel (and off to NJ).
It was an absolute pleasure playing with the Sobar Band and other artists including my buddies Daniel Brecher
(“Hayehudim”, “Drugstore Fanatics”) and Eyal Glass (“Deep Sea Creatures”) for the wonderful Fundraising event.
We also did this radio interview while I was there with the awesome Mottle Wolfe. Check it out here 🙂
Looking forward to more continued success for the foundations I work with.
As usual, hit me up any time…more dates coming up soon for the summer tour.
So, I arrived this morning (5am) in Israel for a week.
Other than a quick visit with my family before touring season starts, I am here to play a fund raiser with my boy Daniel Brecher (Drugstore Fanatics) and a bunch of other artists for the Sobar in Jerusalem.
