Hi everyone,
This one is going to have to be quick. I’m in England! Using a pay by the minute internet connection so I’ll just get to the good stuff. Everything is going great. Just arrived. Had a great couple days before taking off. Played a really fun show in Saint John on June 30th. Joel Plaskett headlined and ripped it up. And on Canada Day I made a really quick trip to Ottawa to play at our national capital’s big bash. It was great. It rained and I had to cut my set short but the crowd was super nice and all the folks working the event made it worth it. Hopefully I’ll get to go back some time and play a little longer. Right now, I’m jetlegged and getting ready to play my first show in UK. This Saturday, I’m doing my first of three opening spots for Jools Holland. I can’t tell you how excited I am for this. The band is over here with me and we are ready to rip. Jools Holland has a really cool and very popular music programme here. Check him out on Youtube. It’s great stuff. the shows should be amazing. Crowds of around 5 to 6 thousand people!! Holy smokes. Not a bad way to start playing shows in the UK. I’m a lucky man.
I hope you’re all doing well. I’ll include photos soon.
thanks for the visit.
