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…



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.

Before the event started we had an amazing personal tour with Will Roseman the Executive Director of the Explorers Club. Words cannot adequately express what a a truly awesome experience this was!

A very interesting audience with lots of great dialogue and questions… All things considered, a grand evening! Thanks Jim… and thanks to the Explorers Club!

Now it’s almost time to head on over to the Beacon to start the process that will allow us to hit the stage later this evening!

Good times!

    Unfortunately we will miss the beacon show this year.
    Give them a musical ride on that sled housed from the explorers club.
    Ride the music.
