Waffle Taco was given a last minute opportunity to play a live stream event hosted by PDX Couch Tour, which happened last night. It was a lot of fun, and PDX Couch Tour is a great organization making the most out of the current situation. It was great for us to play on a stage with an excellent sound person, even if the audience was hiding behind a camera lens. I hope we get the opportunity to do it again!
Not being able to go out has left me with limited opportunities to perform. However, I now have ample time to work on new recordings. I got a new ribbon mic that sounds really nice, and I am really itching to get stuff I’ve recorded on it out in the world.
I have a collection of tracks put together that I will probably be releasing as an ep in the near future. I also was cleaning out some old hard-drives and found a whole album I wrapped up, but never really released. So that is probably getting remastered and thrown up on the web too!
This Memorial Day, I participated in Taps Across America to honor those who gave their lives in service to this country. Trumpeters across the country played at 3 PM.
Taps is a short piece and just a few notes, but it has so much significance and weight that it makes it a challenging piece. It’s a sacred duty for trumpet players and I am glad I was able to do my part to celebrate Memorial Day.
I will be live streaming some music on Thursday! I haven’t decided exactly what I will be doing, but it should be fun. All of the options I am weighing right now involve new music that hasn’t been shared anywhere else yet. Tune in and enjoy!
I tried my hand at a live stream for the first time since the pandemic. It went really well. It was an hour long and hit on stuff from all of my releases, celebrating Fishwerks coming out on Friday. I was nervous coming into it, but there weren’t any major issues. Look out for another one to happen soon!
