i love a parade

hey you crazy cats

how’s that new year thing working out for you so far?

way back in sept 2009 my good friend and colleague  SCOTT MERRIT and myself staged some sort of  grand hallucination called THREE PARADES

two horn bands, one bagpipe band,  three parade queens, all converging on a church tower, a gospel singer,  me locked in the church tower doing a quasimodo, and of course balloons.

it was part of the always daring GUELPH JAZZ FESTIVAL

well here it is

be amazed

summer in the city?

hey you crazy cats

well it seems i have  survived the summer round of junkie touring once again.  It was great to see many of your smiling faces  again and to meet some new  ones .  I like to think of that july tour as the “hot and high an low tour.”

Hottest temp 112 in mesa az

highest  point  11000 ft at snowbird ut

lowest point -21 ft in the deserts of southern california

how does the body survive?

taking the rest of the summer off for some cottage time  “sleep eat swim read repeat”

BUT!!!

THREE PARADES

part of the GUELPH JAZZ FESTIVAL

SEPT 13 2009  1:15 pm    outside front entrance of St Georges Church in beautiful downtown Guelph.

My good friend and longtime colleague SCOTT MERRITT and i have concocted a festive spectacle for your entertainment and  wonderment

it involves three separtate bands, complete with parade queens, converging on the St Georges Church bell tower (played by moi “sanctuary”)

fun for the whole family

hope to see you there

carry on
