Setting up at the Arena

Friday Myron and I got into my old red truck and drove down to Asheville, North Carolina to meet Jack Casady and Justin Guip. We were honored by Warren Haynes invitation to be part of his magnificent Christmas Jam.

Bright lights... what city

It has been a number of years since we were a part of this awesome community project for Habitat For Humanity. What a cool deal! Needless to say I ran into many old friends.

Contentwise this is just a short reprise of the last three gigs. Why has it seemed so busy to me? I haven’t the slightest… it just has. Anyway… we finally got back to the Tabernacle in Mt. Tabor, N.J. around Thanksgiving time… which means we ate some delicious food.

We're talking good... good... good

We’ve always enjoyed this little venue a lot, so it was nice to be back.

I’ve known John Hammond for almost as long as I’ve known Jack… 55 years, more or less. We both got our musical identities started back at Antioch College in 1960 and we’ve been friends ever since. To have him join Jack and myself for the first three songs of this show, was an honor and a pleasure. The three of us sure go back to the beginning of it all. Played some good music too. Thanks so much John!

Heading up to Justin's in Red Hook

Heading up to Justin's in Red Hook

Tuesday we moseyed up to Justin Guip’s Studio and digs in Red Hook for some Rehearsal. We worked Tuesday and part of Wednesday and then came down to The City in time to have dinner with Ginger, Montana, Nessa, Izze, Jack Casady and Michael and Claudia Falzarano. Sort of a Faux early birthday dinner with Family and Friends…

Yummy

Yummy

Then on Thursday we New York’ed it for a bit and when evening rolled around, Jack, Nessa, Phil and I beat it on over to the East Side for our chat with Jim Clash at the Explorers Club.

Jim Clash is a really great guy, and a fine journalist. A true adventurer himself, I was a little awestruck and humbled hen he invited Jack and myself to be interviewed at this fine institution. As it turned out, a fine time was had by all.

Eighteen Years At The Fur Peace Ranch

November 17th, 2015 Jorma 8 comments

Well, we just had our final weekend at the Fur Peace Ranch which featured Jack Casady, Barry Mitterhoff and Tom Feldman.

Eighteen years… that’s a long time no matter how you cut the cookie… but as Mom would say, ‘We’re still here.’ Tom has been a real addition to our teaching staff. In addition to his classes, he has been helping me with mine, and we all love that. Thanks Tom!

Me and Tom

With artists like Tom in the mix… the future is certainly secured insofar as music is concerned.

Jerry B. stopped by to visit the new digs.

I blew into California for some solo shows and one with Jack for the Owsley Stanley Foundation benefit at the Great American Music Hall. My first show was the Rendezvous and it was a swell way to start this little run. When Myron was setting me up for this gig, the jack in my ‘acoustic’ guitar took a poop… but there was a great little music store in town on Oroville Ave….Herreid Music. They drove a new pickup over to the gig and Myron put it in… game on! Thanks guys!!!!
