Ladies and Gentlemen, Introducing Trigger Hippy

Hello friends, I just got back from an awesome gig in Woodstock with Phil Lesh and his sons Brian and Grahame. I got to hang out with my old pals Larry and Teresa. Joey Russo was back on the skins kicking some serious ass. Fun times, all around. Of course, the Levon Helm band killed it (as usual). Danny Louis and Marco Benevento were also in the house and tore up a few numbers. For those of you who have never been to a Midnight Ramble....GO TO ONE! You won't regret it. It's just about the most fun you can have with your pants on.

In other news, I'm excited to tell you that I joined a group called Trigger Hippy. We've been rehearsing some in Nasvhille and have some select dates planned for summer. It's an awesome lineup: Steve Gorman, Nick Govrik, Joan Osborne, Audley Freed and little ol' me. Check us out: www.triggerhippy.net Look out ya'll!! We be on the facebook as well.

There are still some tickets left for the Swedish American Hall shows in San Francisco. These are special acoustic shows and I'm going to try and focus some attention on the unreleased songs from my lyrics book that just came out. We'll have copies for sale at the show if you wanna check it out.
