hey everyone! i hope you're doing well. sorry for the unannounced week off. i left town for the weekend a couple of weeks ago and came back feeling totally under the weather and i got behind on skyrocket! stuff then had a bunch of gigs. anyway, i'm back! did you miss me? i missed you. i realized last week how much i need this podcast. how i need to reach out and talk to my peers and talk to you guys. it keeps me sane in a world gone mad. sao, thank you for listening.
you know what else keeps me sane? playing music with my dear friends. tonight, i'll be doing just that! tonight i'll be playing with my dear old friend, einar pedersen and three of my friends who have been guests on this show, todd, wolfson, aj vallejo and dony wynn! if you live in austin, you should come out it's tonight, monday, june 25th at 8pm at monkey nest on burnet rd. it's going to be a great time with old friends sharing music together. come out and get down with us!
my guest for episode 80 is talented multi-instrumentalist/arranger/beatboxer/stage actor/singer/songwriter and now the head honcho of patronism.com, john pointer. i met john over a decade ago when we had the same distributer and our bands at the time played their christmas party. anyway, since then, john and i have written together, performed together and he wrote all of the beautiful string arrangements for my last album, "el payaso". john and i got together for lunch a couple of weeks ago at a loud sports bar and talked about a cappella music, beatboxing, rockstar spernova, becoming a stage actor, starting patronism.com and much, much more. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did.
