So far I have played two gigs at the SD Fair this year and have two more to go. The experience has been amazing although the Fair Special Events department has really sucked!! Just before my second gig with my new backing band The Exiles (they are amazing BTW) the Fair called and said I couldn't have the band because I had signed up as a solo. BFD!! Just change the frickin' paperwork!!! Anyway their compromise was to give me an additional date on Sunday June 26 on the Plaza Stage for a two hour set 8-10 pm. WOW not expecting that, but what the hell. At least the band will be able to back me this time and they make my songs sound even better than I thought possible. It has been great working with Joe, Bill #1, Jack and Bill #2. These guys are experienced players who help me really rock it out on songs like Winona and Runaway Baby!!
With two hours to play on Sunday, there will be time for lots of covers and originals. Check out the video of us playing on the 11th.
