Played a private Christmas party last night. It was out in the country on a gorgeous farm where they host weddings. Beautiful property, catered food.

First time using my 15" 602 ME hi-hats with this band. They sounded AMAZING! My new favorite.
And first time with the Ludwig salesman snare. Love it!

Bonkers gig tonight. Flew into Orlando for a super high-end birthday party.
Stage is plexiglass over a massive pool. Crazy.
Backline gear was great.
Yamaha Birch Custom Absolutes & A Customs.

Gotta love outdoors in December. In Texas. Fun afternoon gig with a six piece band.

And someone was kind enough to take a picture. I met four of these guys for the first time on stage that day. This was a benefit for Mission 22 a veteran suicide prevention group. We helped them raise $1400 that day, and the band made $300 in tips from an enthusiastic crowd.

I've not been out for a few weeks so played a couple of nice local gigs this weekend to stretch the legs... First was the opportunity to run my "classic" rock sizes from the INDe shell bank for a fun sub gig which included the messiest stage I have navigated in some time!

Then played my now occasional church gig this morning... It's begenning to look a lot like Christmas!

Got booked for a few Christmas parties at a beautiful resort / catering place in rural GA. Using a 20, 14x11 floor, Acrolite, 19" Zildjian "Beautiful Baby" with two rivets, 16" Mehmet, 14" Masterwork hats.
No mics or in ears so set up / breakdown is quick and easy.

Recording?
Sort of. Running through a set for a reunion show, just making a rough recording on the fly. Didn’t want the kit to overpower the vocals in a small space.

The bassist ended up sitting about three feet from that second crash ride so I’m pretty sure she appreciated it.
