Milwaukie porchfest was cancelled a couple weekends ago because of the smoke from the wildfires. It’s been rescheduled to this Sunday at 4 PM. Waffle Taco will be out playing, and we would love to see the top half of your faces!
After some fun porch gigs and another appearance on PDX Couch tours, I’m ready to get back to my regularly scheduled streams. Since I’m in my home studio and working on a bunch of recording projects, I thought it would be fun to do a recording session as a live stream. Come join in on the fun!
On the 11th, Waffle Taco will be jamming on a porch in Milwaukie. The 11th is the last week of Porch Fest, so come out and enjoy the good weather and music while it lasts. We’ll be playing from 7-8, more info here: https://milwaukieporchfest.com/
Friday from 7-8, I’m playing on a porch in Milwaukie as part of porch fest! On the map, I’m under “Jazz, funk, and electronics duo”, but it will just be me looping. Address is 11912 SE 19th Ave.Lots of great socially distanced music going on the next 4 Fridays in Milwaukie!
It’s crazy to think that it’s August already. Time is very nebulous right now. That said, some things seem to be solidifying. As things drag on, more places are realizing that we can’t keep continuing like this is going to wrap up in two weeks.
I kind of realized it a couple weeks ago when I decided to do my live streams more regularly (see ya tomorrow!). Since then, I’ve been thinking about how to make things work within the new context of safety.
For example, today Waffle Taco rehearsed in a park and some of our friends were able to come out. We were in the amphitheater at Tabor, which seats hundreds. It was a small group of 5 of us spread yards apart. It was amazing to share music with people again.
Moments like that really drive me to work for more opportunities to continue to perform. With my new outlook, I’ve working towards some cool opportunities. I look forward to sharing some cool performances this fall. Details coming soon!
I am putting together my next live stream, August 6th at 6PM. It’s going to be a collection of requests from friends and family. Getting requests is providing me with some new and unexpected stuff to work on, while providing the content the people want! Tune in and enjoy!
Waffle Taco is great in that there is only the two of us, so it’s easy to stay six feet apart and continue playing. We were thrilled to play at PDX Porch Tour by invitation of our great friend Trent. Today at happy hour time, we took to the front porch and were really grateful to play to an audience spread across the lawn. We were even happier to see a few passersby stop and sit on the grass and enjoy the music.
There is video of this somewhere out there, hopefully I will be able to get it up for you to enjoy as well. It was a nice, warm, sunny day, and we were happy to be back out with our friends in what little capacity we can right now.
