[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvgAdUEGhdM%5DLast weekend, I played with my hometown band, Fluid Minds, @ Goose Island on the north side of Chicago. Check out our live performance of ‘JB Kinda Thang.’ You can download this track for free on our bandcamp site.
I want to thank the Passafire crew for giving me the opportunity to join them on the winter tour this year. This was an unforgettable experience meeting fans and building new friendships across the country… all while fulfilling my passion of playing music. A big thanks to all of the fans who welcomed me into the Passafire community. I also want to give a shout out to the SINIZEN crew, who went through several rough patches while on the road these past couple months. They still managed to make the best of the tour while supporting us.
01.20.11 – Common Grounds – Gainesville, FL
My debut on the tour! I even had crowd support from Tampa & Atlanta… Thanks Fam!
01.22.11 – Soapbox Laundro Lounge – Wilmington, NC
Our first sold out show of the tour! It was at this point of the tour when I started to get in the groove of things behind the boards.
02.05.11 – The Beat Kitchen – Chicago, IL
My return to Sweet Home Chicago! I played a complete set with my band, Fluid Minds, along with the full 90 minute set with Passafire. It was definitely exhausting (I was DRENCHED in sweat by the end of the last set), but such an awesome feeling playing to a packed house of my friends and family! After the show, we met up with our friends Rebelution & Iration, who also played in Chicago @ The House of Blues. All in all, it was a great evening.
I originally created this blog to provide updates on my progress on this tour. With the tour now over, I will continue to make occasional posts about my music projects along with other notable gems within the rock/reggae scene. Feel free to subscribe to my updates or bookmark this page.
After 12 shows of the winter tour, I finally came back to my hometown of Chicago to work a double shift with Fluid Minds & Passafire. Passafire played it’s biggest show yet @ The Beat Kitchen (4 tickets short of a sell out) and I’m glad I was able to include Fluid Minds on the night’s festivities. I want to thank all of my friends & family who came out to support us.
