Northward Bound

In the spirit of my wacky professional life… we drove to Jacksonville, Florida on Wednesday… had some mechanical trouble… didn’t get to the hotel until 0230 Thursday morning… went to Live Oak and the Wanee Festival at 1430… wandered around at the site for a while and got ready for our set at 1900.

Ah… the Spanish moss in the trees. Could gators and snakes be far away? The weather was beautiful. At this time of year you never know and well, it’s still chilly and wet up home.

Thanks to our little home away from home, the internal temperature is always the same. I remember spending most of my professional life driving myself around in a van. This sure beats that… let me tell you.

In any case, this festival is one of the good ones and it certainly has a flavor all its own.

Refreshed after a nap in the bus, our buddy Jack Casady who just celebrated his 67th birthday on the 13th, wanders about backstage. And speaking of the stage, here is our set list:

Yes, that’s a two hour set folks and a good one if we do say so ourselves. After our show we headed over to the Hittin’ The Note booth and hung out for a while chatting with our friends and signing some stuff. Of course we had our new Steady As She Goes CD and well, we’re pretty proud of it. After our signing at the booth, to the strains of Widespread Panic we got back on the bus, dropped Jack in Jacksonville and right now we’re passing Mt. Airy on our way back to the Fur Peace Ranch.

    Your friend, Bob P. of WFDU-Fairleigh Dickinson University, did his Hot Tuna set during his Sounds of Blue show on Wednesday in honor of Jack’s birthday…and then played the “sounders” you generously allowed him to record at our Scranton show in 2007. As you would say, it just doesn’t get any better than that! xo
