A few weeks back, my best friend and musical life partner, Shaun and myself got together to record some tunes with his electric drum kit.
The idea is to expand the one-man acoustic show to include a more rockin' set. Aside from sounding fantastic, the e-drums have a very important feature for smaller venues: volume control. Hopefully in the future we'll be playing some bars where drums wouldn't normally be welcome--unless Shaun played with dry spaghetti instead of drum sticks.

Lots of fun had over the past week or two.
A few nights ago, we decided to continue our trend of hosting little fetes with a theme. This time, we decided to head to Germany and embrace Oktoberfest (deemed "Oktobeerfest" by my oh so clever roommate) by dedicating an evening to drinking songs, pretzels, and various types of beer. (...joyeux enfants de la Bourgogne...)
The premise was simple : come prepared with EITHER food, beer, or a drinking song and you are welcome to our home.
Here we are, waiting for "Sandy" to hit. She's a hurricane. We are also expecting a nor'easter. The combination is what they are referring to as "the perfect storm" or a hybrid storm. Fortunately, we are not on the coast. We won't have to worry about 16 foot waves. We live inland and are expecting 60 mph winds, up to 80 mph wind gusts and probable power outages.
