I know it's been awhile since I last posted. Most of you probably have stopped checking my blog for lack of new content. So a few updates.
I'm getting back to practicing with the band I was rehearsing with the past summer. I had to stop because of the wedding prep stuff. We're doing mostly blues/R & B stuff and hopefully looking to start gigging in the new year at Hess Village. Check back for hopefully some dates soon.
Friday night the misses and I went to the West Town Bar and Grill for dinner and check out my good friend and co-worker, Edgar Breau perform a solo acoustic set. For those of you who don't know who he is, his band from the 70's, Simply Saucer, were a local Hamilton band (way ahead of their time!) that went on to infulence people like Sonic Youth. His stuff is now quirky Canadiana folk, which is really different and quite good. If any of this stuff is up your alley, check him and Simply Saucer out!
I picked up a new guitar. A Squier Telecaster Standard. For a Squier, it sounds really nice. I got a hell of a deal. Being made in Indonesia, makes it pretty inexpensive to begin with, but because it was a floor model with a little scratch, I got $70 knocked off the price. For the money the guitar sounds fantastic! Why pay more for a Fender Tele if you don't really have to, to get that sound!
Keep the comments coming, it's nice to hear what everyone's feedback is. Execpt for you Lotion boy!! Keep it to yourself!! (inside joke)

Just got in from our honeymoon in Mexico. We were at the El Dorado Royale in the Mayan Riveria and it was fantastic! The resort is absolutley amazing! The service was top notch and the food!!!! I think between the misses and myself we gained 10 pounds! I'll post some more later on and maybe some pictures from the trip but for now I'm just tired and glad to be home.
