Have you ever thought about traveling with you band? How about putting together a band whose only purpose is to travel? You two favorite weekend warriors talk all about this just for you. And, as should happen at the center of any conversation about booking gigs, it’s expressly decided that praise should always go to the go-getters out there booking the gigs that we all love to play.
Moving on from that, the concept of groove within the structure of an acoustic setting is discussed. Do you know who the drummer is? Both Paul and Dave agree on this point, and they discuss exactly why that’s the case!
Press play and enjoy, friends. This one’s guaranteed to be a fun ride!
Sometimes it’s nirvana, and sometimes it’s a fight. The thing is, you never really know which way the gig is going to go until you’re in the thick of it… and then you just have to take it as it comes and deal with it! Whether it’s discussing the harnessing of the karma gods or the Facebook algorithm, your two favorite weekend warriors bring their A-game to you each and every week.
Speaking of games, Justin Timberlake’s performance at the Super Bowl is fair game to discuss in this podcast, and that discussion happened, too.
