Ramblings From a Drunken Mind

My New Haircut! 

I managed to get through the entire day today not realizing it was April Fool's Day. I mean, for a joker like me, April Fool's Day is my favorite day of the year, a day when I can pull pranks on people that, any other day, would be considered in bad taste or childish. I didn't pull ONE SINGLE PRANK! In my defense, it was kind of a hectic day and I really didn't have time to even think… Read more

The Madison St. Mafia? 

This weekend, we were privileged enough to perform at Mr. Tony's with some fantastic artists, such as Hell's Heathens, Seeking Seven, and a friend of mine, Mr. Alaun Comer. Seeing Alaun reminded me of living on Madison St., downtown Tupelo and the (many) nights of drinks and impromptu jam sessions that ensued. I lived on Madison St., for around 3 years, moving to the area in 2010.… Read more

How Uncharictaristic of Me! 

I've been kinda quiet lately. This extreme winter weather we've been having has me in a bit of a funk, and the desire to come up with something to write about hasn't been there, so I've opted to just keep my mouth shut for the most part.  As the saying goes, "It's better to be quiet and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!" and my mouth tends… Read more

Friday Night at JP's Funky Little Shack is our LAST SHOW!!! 

...On the books, anyway (gotcha!). Foosh, Gavin, and I are gonna take just a little time off from gigging to start writing for a new album. Don't worry, we won't be gone long, and we have no desire to retire from playing music. We're gonna play the blues 'til the blues takes us over. We want to write a new album together, and the schedule has wound down to the… Read more

Christmas Memories. 

Every year, about this time, I begin to look back on my life and the many Christmas memories I've built up over the years. Some of the memories are great, others, not so much. The one that sticks out the most in my memory is Christmas in 1984. I had just turned 12 years old, and Santa brought my brother and I brand new H&R Single-Shot 12-Gauge shotguns for Christmas. As my… Read more

The Show Must Go On, Right? 

I've been playing music for an audience since I was 16 years old. From the time I've been mobile, I've been sneaking in to venues to hear live music and pushing whatever band I was in at the time, trying to get gigs. And I've gotten pretty good at keeping gigs booked and keeping myself, and my band, as busy as we want to be. And I have played every show (pun intended)! In the… Read more

Happy Thanksgiving! 

It's the time of year when we all get together with family (most of whom we don't like or even see throughout the year) and friends and give thanks for everything we have. The last couple of years, I've noticed the trend of starting November 1 and giving thanks for one thing every day of the month. That seems like an awful lot of work to me, so I'ma just do it all right here. I'm lazy like that. :-) First and… Read more

At the Risk Of Sounding Like a Braggart... 

So, the new album is almost 3 months old (wow, has it been that long?) and sales are going really good. I'm happy this album has being so well received. It's nice to know that we (apparently) are on to something good, and it keeps us moving forward to the next album. The best part of it all, though, is hearing your thoughts on it. We've gotten some great feedback from all of you, and here are a… Read more

Doesn't everyone deserve a little? 

I've been a little distracted the last couple of weeks and have been neglecting the blog. I can sit here and make excuses (new part-time day gig, busy with shows, etc.), but I think I'm just gonna stick with the "I needed a little time off" explanation (the difference between explanation and excuse? Excuse is to get you out of trouble; explanation is just telling it like it is). I needed the… Read more
