Don Matsuo of Zoobombs

Had a blast two weeks ago with Don Mastuo and the GigiBand.  Complete trial by fire.  One practice and away we went.  Mostly improvised, just following Don's cues.  It's been a busy spring.  Here's a set list and a few videos.  Big thanks to my band mates for the night. 
1. Mannish Boy 
2. Highway A Go Go (blues)
3. South Central Rock 
4. Circle X 
5. Come as You Are 
6. Mo Funky 
7. Sympathy for The Devil(encore)

Big Show Next Week

Next week I get the honor to play guitar in the backing band of Don Matsuo from the Zoobombs.  It also coincides with Gigi's 12th anniversary.   It's been a great place to play at over the years, and it's a local music institution at this point.  Well, here in Fukuoka Japan anyhow.  If you haven't heard of the Zoobombs, check them out next time they come to the U.S. or Canada.  They are nuts.

....yeah, we're playing this.......

Godzilla Snacks - Cave Dwellers out today and other musical projects

Hi!  Three things!

#1 The band and I have a new EP out today. We did this 100% by ourselves over the last year. I'm not sure what it is, or if it's good, but we tried.  Big thanks to Jan Bart Leeuw for playing Harmonium and Clavinet, and Jon Bates for a few Screams. https://godzillasnacks.bandcamp.com/album/cave-dwellers

 #2 The punk recording project I've been (“producing?”) Born Shit Stirrers, is haphazardly deciding to become a live act. So I'll be playing guitar with those a-holes April 18th. A fight might start.

#3 I'm honored to have been asked to play guitar in the backup band for Don Matsuo of Zoobombs in Fukuoka in May. Crazy, considering it was one of my wife's favorite Japanese bands of the 90's. It's been a while just being a guitar player and I'm looking forward to the rehearsals. Even though I suck at Japanese.

Alright.  That's all for now.
