Vimeo does not work

I have noticed none of the vimeo video links are working.

I don’t have time to figure out the problem- hopefully there are enough Youtube video’s to give a a sense.

Maybe not

James has moved his whole family to Taiwan- the music is better over there. They actually pay musicians! Wishing him the best.  As a results Cats is not doing much anymore–But, our last gig was a hum dinger. Hired for two hours, had us stay on for an extra and tipped us well on top of the fee. We felt much appreciated. And the location- within the sound of Santa Monica Beach was the best.

So what next??????

Spring has sprung

James is back from China. Julie is not performing on any stages. The twins are back from Germany. There is music in the air!!!! I played all day on Sunday.

Cats With Class

Julie is starring in musicals and James is off to China. George, and Victor and I are playing a private gig with A couple of other cats. Holding the Fort together.

Mama’s Hot Sauce RIP

Well, we practiced and got good, but could never get any gigs. So much for Rockabilly.  My slapping ability got better. I got faster on the upright. Just couldn’t get the engine running.

Bass on board!

Check out pages 75-76[1].pdf

The law says, I can fly with my bass at no extra charge- In the cabin–Hurray.! I’ve always been a bit nervous about my basses.  All you players,  maybe print this out next time you fly.  Unfortunately, my upright doesn’t fit the bill.  He needs a whole seat to himself.

“An air carrier providing air transportation shall permit a passenger to carry a violin, guitar, or other musical instrument in the aircraft cabin, without charging the passenger a fee in addition to any standard fee that carrier may require for comparable carry-on baggage, if


(A) the instrument can be stowed safely in a suitable baggage compartment in the aircraft cabin or under a passenger seat, in accordance with the requirements for carriage of carry-on baggage or cargo established by the Administrator; and


(B) there is space for such stowage at the time the passenger boards the aircraft.”


Board early!  Bon Voyage.

Gonna Buy Me a Dog

This is a song I wrote for my Dear Friend, Donna.  After a bitter divorce she swore to give up men altogether and buy herself a dog.  She chose an Australian Shepherd.

I put on a little lipstick and I think makes me look like I’ve got died hair. FYI This IS my natural color!
