The wheels of the bus go round and round
Well here we are day 3 of tour and the bus is smelling fabulous already. We had our first show of tour last night in Fort Lauderdale at Culture Club. The show went well considering we have not played or rehearsed since April. We revisited some of Donavon's first record in the middle of the set with a Hawaiian flavor. I had my ukulele debut. It was a good laugh for us all. We were hoping to get a surf in at some point but Old King Neptune has not blessed us with any waves yet. So far everything is moving right along. We were blessed by some friends last night with showers and normal sleeping accommodations. I have met some really cool people over the last few years of touring who are so nice to open their homes up to some smelly musician types. It's so nice to be able to have a shower and normal toilet that's not moving from side to side with every pot hole. We have one more show in Lauderdale tonight then a 5 a.m. bus call and off to St. Pete. Maybe we can do some oil slick skim boarding on the bay side. :( I hope you all can make it out to one of the shows this month the band sounds great. I am truly blessed to have a job that I really enjoy and perform with some of my closest friends even if there is the lack of showers and private space.
