What is it to be happy? Truly happy. Every day, every week, every moment? Is it possible? Most people are simply unaware of their ability to feel full-filled.
Wahoo! 4th of July is such a great time of the year! There was so much to say and do that I drummed up another video to explain what was going on.
This week I was so excited for the shows that I released the Big Waves Tank .
If your in the neighborhood next week swing out for some good music and a brief feature in an episode! Enjoy!
Amazing NEW Tank
As a kid I have many fond memories around his birthday. oh the camping trips and the BBQ Ribs! seriously though they are soooooooooo good. Nothing compares in fact, I wont even bother trying any others.
This summer has been one hell of a trip already and we aren’t even through half of it. I have enjoyed seeing you all out. I put together this quick video for you with an update and Epic Drone Footage. Enjoy!
Green Rooms And More
There is always this smell from the past years in the room. The only way I can describe it is an old basement meets your grandmas house. Almost like you could smell the bands that were there before you.
They have always just been called them green rooms. I’m not really sure why because for the most part they weren’t Green. In fact, they were covered in the stickers by the bands that had been there before.
All kinds of stickers! big ones small ones and they all had this retro 80’s cartoon character on them! LOL
I was never interested in stickers then because every band or musician had them. It seemed to be over done.
“Dude! we have stickers! Now were are a real band!” – said every college student…EVER
The fad seemed to fade with out notice.
In turn, I HAVE STICKERS AND BUTTONS! I guess I am super excited about this because I have never had them. Also, seems so RETRO to have them! LOL
What was old and nonsensically to me then is now clearer then blue waters. When I received my first order i was overwhelmed with excitement!
Anyways! I want you to have one! Come to any show and pick one up!
The People I Meet
Last week I was at Ansari’s, Barley & Vine, and Me & Julio’s. It was light week for shows but as you already know from my last blog Dollar Bill Notes that was planned.
I met some super cool people though! I love hearing stories of people and what brought them to the venue that night.
It amazes me how many people I meet on any given week that are traveling from out of state. Here on work or vacation.
If you are coming out to see me specify saw hello! I’d love to chat with you.
Anyways, thanks for coming around! I’ll see you at the next show and have safe July 4th holiday!
NO! I am not breaking up with you! In Fact, I love you very much. I love when you watch my videos. I love when you comment on my blogs and I love when I see you out at shows.
I find it strangely humorous that you want to hear Free Bird despite my insistence that it is an over played song.
I love that you are convinced I should try out for The Voice and its that kind of support that keeps me going every week.
But why do you stay in MN Jud? Why are you not doing bigger things?
Some great questions! But really the answers are not really satisfying.
I am a committed husband and father of two. I believe that I am in the right place in my career right now. I am happy with everything the local music industry has to offer.
Let me pose a question though…
Name the last five winners of the Voice from the top of your head? Heck Name the last Three!
I bet you struggled to remember (unless you are an avid follower). You see, I think that the hardest part of being on a contest show like this is the follow up.
Anyways, my kids are super young and I really like being close to home.
Thanks for hanging with me and I will see you at a show soon!
P.S. Get your Twenty18 Shirt today and you will get a special EXTRA gift with every order!
What a great season it was with Giants Ridge. I put a close on 2017 with a huge party up there. Seemed like last year this time when I played there for the first time…
Actually, it was this time last year. Ha If you joined my there this last weekend thanks for an amazing week!
On another great note! I picked up another house gig at Luckys 13 in Burnsville! Wahoo Every month the second Thursday @ 5pm
If you haven’t been there you need to find time to make it out to a show!
Likewise, I have a super cool segment I am releasing within my weekly videos call Brews and Eats with Badass Peeps!
I am super excited about this segment. Keep your eyes peeled on Youtube for the next video!
BTW, now that the summer is coming to an end I am changing out the some of the shirts. So get yours before they are gone!
Wahoo! You guys rock! Last week we sang for over 1000 new people and we gained almost 200 new fans online!
I have to be honest, nothing feels better than meeting new music lovers like yourself. I thought I was passionate about music until I meet you guys.
Nathan and I played in Baxter MN at Maddens Resort for a 2 night 4 show wine and food festival.
From the very start it was dancing and singing. I loved how fast people ate just to get up and dance with us on the first night.
During our time off Nathan I headed to The Gull Dam Brewery for some delicious beer and a packed house full of dog owners.
It was a soft week! Meaning I only played 4 shows. I apologize to those of you that went to B52’s and I wasn’t there (communication error). I will make it up to you this week for sure!
Last week was really a great week! I released my rendition of Allman Brothers-Midnight Rider! To which, I am very proud of. One Fran(Friend + Fan) thought I should release the TBT early in the week. Then of Thursday do a live session.
I am curious what you think. Reply to this email if you think I should release the TBT songs early to you amazing music lovers.
On another note, Season 2 Episode 2 of the Vlog was released last week on youtube. Its really about exploring different places. If you haven’t yet check it out here: https://youtu.be/IjLYUJQslfE
