Larry at the keys.. Tearing that mo' fo' down!

The Trusty Troubador..

Nick Nixon waiting for The Funderbus to get him curbside...

We are in Southern California and I took the opportunity to get in a hang with my pal Syd who is Mia Dyson's producer/drummer. So good to see him and we are still talking about having a few of those guys come to Bisbee for a writing/recording workshop. Sounds good to me!

Gigs tonight and Friday with Saturday off then Iva Lee's in San Clemente on Sunday. We head to Palm Desert after that for a different kind of event. I got the band an in-store at a real live record store called Record Alley where a woman who I grew up with works. I haven't seen her for 14 years, and her mother (my godmother) was a major figure in my younger years... and one of The Mother Unit's best pals..I am looking forward to being around actual vinyl records on top of having the band show what they have got! Much thanks to Eleni Austin for being willing to get us in there!


Back of the bus! Hanging out super low key in the back of the bus Lovely day in Atacadero! We roll towards Ventura today for another day off.


We had some fun in Occidental. Here is Mr Andy Y biting the wee head off a candy turtle that was on the Frogger themed cupcakes we had. We are rolling out of the Northern CA area today headed for Hermosa Beach.


Dance floor. Occidental.

Thinking of my pal KK as we have brunch in Santa Rosa... A disco ball to add ambience to the meal is never a bad thing.


Traffucked on our way back to Santa Rosa. We are inching our way towards Rio Nido Roadhouse for a damn fine party.


I just love this shot..

The guys onstage at San Francisco's Biscuits and Blues. Love this venue!

Ok then! San Francisco welcomes us for the big Andy T Nick Nixon Band cd release show! Traffucked but happy!


Belated birthday dinner with the band.

We all had our tearful reunion with Kathy who manages the band tonight. Not only did we change hotels, but we did a major upgrade. From a dangerous area in Daly City to to much nicer Westin at SFO. A nice salad for dinner, lots of laughter, and a little pot de creme for dessert and now time to do more. 

I asked for this.. I got it. 

 Knee deep, no.. really neck deep in paperwork. My free time today is all paperwork and this is life in the bigger leagues. At least it is for me trying to get up to speed for the new artist and her next tour. Haven't seen a stack of paperwork like this since my days in real estate. Lots to digest, contracts to read over, details to familiarize with... And a belly full of good food and a warm heart from these fantastic Nashville folks to fuel me for a couple hours while I hope to make a real dent in this ginormous advance. 

I do love me some Andy T Nick Nixon Band. Tomorrow night the band has the big cd release show at Biscuits and Blues here in San Francisco. Always a great gig.. And a super great sounding room. 

New hotel?


Brunching in Daly City. We are changing hotels to get somewhere a little less funky and more to the standard of our pal Kathy who flies in to be with us.. and her husband Andy T. Day off and a little time to kill before check in. Pictured here is Andy T himself at the Boulevard Cafe a classic 50's modern diner.
