Yes that is the correct spelling. I just finished writing a song about Mathew Brady. Ask you…. is this a rational way for me to spend what precious time I have left on this mortal coil?
Well, we will see. It is def not a Chaise Lounge song. It might be good for The Fablers? That will all depend on Marilyn. It is a song that will have a niche audience: Civil War photography buffs.
Maybe this is how I will write songs from now on… with a niche audience in mind? Say…. citrus growers. Or maybe bookbinders.
Chaise Lounge is off to Wisconsin today. Should be a great trip. The Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra is a good orchestra and Maestro Pat Miles is an excellent conductor. And there is fried cheese curd!
Getting ready for our trip to Wisconsin to play with the Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra. rehearsing the orchestra arrangements this evening.
I am just astonished by all the hospitality they have already extended to us. It seems that a good deal of that hospitality involves fried cheese curd and Point Beer.
And that is ok with me.
I have been working on film score for Les Francis for a film about Washington insider Harry McPherson. It will be a 1hour show for PBS.
Unfortunately I heard this morning that Harry suffered a tragic fall and is in the hospital. I hope he gets out in time to see the film. The Film is an amazing look inside the LBJ administration.
The Germano’s show on Tuesday was really fun. I just looked at the videos we took and I am struck by how naturally Marilyn swings.
It is just an amazing, and particularly American trait that she comes by naturally. Can I just say that Germano’s would benefit from just a “little” stage….
Just a 4 inch stage would make a world of difference. Also, it is worth noting that Valentine’s day…. or St. Valentines Day ( as I usually call it) is a supremely weird night to play.
At least half the audience was there as sort of a pre-game warm-up for the “actual” Valentine’s Day event. ( sex) . There were quite a few couples who left before the show was over… but had quirky somehow complicit smiles on their faces as they left. I felt like we had done our jobs in making their lives just a little more complete for at least that one night.
