**Best Friends Girl (joined by Will Evans)

There ya have one full eve of music and great opening set by Will Evans. We've known about each other for many years and finally got a chance to meet, hang out and make some music together too.Will is one talented dude with an amazing ability to write a song and bring it to life with his looping technique. (This is where he'll record parts on the fly and create a whole song by adding one part at a time and take them away at times too). Purely awesome! 

There were many highlights for me. One was starting with the late Eddie Money's "Two Tickets To Paradise". I had the chance to open for Eddie three times at The Pickel Barrel in Killington, VT and each time, he opened with 2 Tickets so I thought we'd do the same. More moments were bringing four new songs to you cool people. First was "Left Lane Fascination" underlining my frustrations with drivers addicted to the left lane. Next was "Better Days" which was written for friends dealing with depression and suicide letting them know better days are ahead. Third was "Fishin" which speaks for itself and lastly "Flowers for No Reason" for my beautiful wife Katie. It was a surprise to her as our daughter Riley brought he flowers but this time they did have a reason!We always love when Bodi struts his dance moves during his song "B.O.D.I.' and always an honor to hear you sing "LIFE" back to me.   It was great to have Will Evans join us for "Best Friends Girl" as our encore too.

We need to shout out to our amazing sponsors because without them, this show would not happen. They were Ladder One Bar and Grill, Optical Expressions Berlin, North Branch Vineyards, Lost Nation Brewery, VOLKL, The Point Radio, Minuteman Press, Aired Out w JD Green, and New Technology Partners from NYC.  Huge thanks out to JD Green for stepping up and being the last minute MC for the evening.

Ezra Mulheron knocked it out of the park with his sound and we thank him endlessly!  

I hope we see you at a show soon and get ready for Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center on February 8, 2020. It will be our seventh year there and another one to remember. Also can't thank my band enough for rocking. They are Jeff Poremski-guitar and vocals, Rudy Dauth-bass and vocals, Tommy Diehl-drums, Chris Peterman-tenor sax, Luke Laplant-Bari Sax, Matt Avery-trombone , Chris Hawthorn-trumpet and Stuart Paton-congas. What a band!!!!
