Had one last hurrah with Mossy Creek yesterday afternoon. We played for KZFR’s 25th birthday celebration! KZFR and Danielle were born the same year! Was fun – the band sounded sweet!
So…. the count-down is on! Cliff, Paige and I packed up the truck this afternoon. I’ll be picking up Cliff at 4 AM, 12 hours from now!
I am officially on a 5-week hiatus from all of my bands. Those would be Mossy Creek, Running in the Shadows, and the Red Dirt Bullies (I think that’s all). That does not mean I won’t be playing music! Cliff and I each have a mandolin and a guitar packed in the truck. And Bob the Barber is already at our beach in Mexico with his guitars and music books! Indeed, part of the thrill of this trip will be our daily jams each afternoon.
Our afternoons consist of the Bob the Barber ritual: ice-cold beer; maybe a shot or two of mezcal; cowboy hats and good songs.
I like the songs and the cowboy hats, and I used to be right there with the booze, but I’ll take a Cranberry and soda-water nowadays, please!
So the months of planning this trip are at an end. It’s time to go. I’m just sad neither one of my girls will be along! 😦
Should be just a ton of fun though…stay tuned!
