hi, do you like the open road in wild places?
do you like camping and hiking?
do you like playing great music in great venues?
do you like thriving and existing in a blissful amazing adventure?
this isn't a sales pitch, this is an invitation to what I do each summer.
I know where to play, where to sleep, where to eat, where not to eat, lol
3-5 hour gigs on weekends, early weekdays are off days for travel and hiking and stuff.
mostly bars and resort bars and a few festivals
this is part music, part fun, part roadtrip, thatswhy I do it each summer.
you can choose all or any part of this trip north.
you will absolutely need your own traveling rig to sleep in, like a van
your own music gear
your own traveling money and emergency funds
and a desire to do the long journey to Alaska
I split all gigs and tips 50-50
I would really like a lead and rhythm acoustic as I always do my own rhythm
and good vocals and an openness to audiences. I would love to do some leads, I never get to playing solo.
this year I am doing selected obscure songs from the shins, morphine, aimee mann, ryan adams,
peter rowan, john hiatt, Samantha crain, perfect circle, stp, alice, pearlj, broken bells, the dead, Allmans,
Depeche mode, Catherine wheel, sunny day real estate, abra moore, Michael fracasso, dahvid Garza, yonder mountain string band, railroad earth....
I play consecutive days in the same venue so I try to have 3-4 setlists for each gig.
its usually the same audiences.
I tend to stay true to the songs but some morph into more interpretation and
improvisation in some songs over the years
if you are interested and havequestions just holler
and btw, the money is very good and so are the venues
do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers
