Fallin into Fall

September hit and the luxury of summer is over! I am trying to record my originals now, you can find them at soundcloud.com  or click on the link under the "music" tab on my website. 

I've been playing a lot with Shalo Lee and the Rush River Band, they are a lot of fun to play with. We will be adding originals to the reperotoire soon also.

The HSSB (High strung string band) has renewed vigor with our originals. We are in a process of creating home recordings and everyone in the band is brimming with ideas and songs. Especially Eldon, check him out on Soundcloud too, he has recorded some awsome tracks from his basement!

Let me know how you are, stop into a show and say "hi".

See ya, B

Summer is here - bring it on!

Ahhhhhh... that's my sigh of relief that summer is finally here! The bonfires, the festivals, the music.....

This summer I am playing a little more on the Country side of things. I HAVE TICKETS FOR MOONDANCE JAMMIN COUNTRY FESTIVAL (3 day general admission, I can sell them at $100.00, that's $70 cheaper than at the website). I'll be playing at 10pm and 1am on June 24th (Friday) with Lady Shania.  Other bands that I will be stepping in with are the MLC band featuring Shalo Lee and The Big Twang. The Wayzata Symphony Orchestra is on break until the next season starting in September. Check my upcoming dates, come out and listen or jam (if its a bonfire party or festival :)

Spring is here, and soon the music will move outside!  I love being able to play out in the open air... Bella Vida is coming up and Bettina Villamil & Friends will be playing.  Don't miss a fun time at the "music garden" in Geneva, MN.  The festival is May 28, 29th and 30th.  Week before last I was lucky enough to be able to play at the State Theatre in MN with a band called Rocket Club.  They are a fantastic group and I am proud to say I shared the stage with them!  Well, keep posted, I'll be playing a lot this summer. I hope to see you out at a show!
