Huntsville Alabama was a great night. It's so good to be back in the South. Also on the bill was Tonic and the Black Crowes. The jumbotron was in full effect.

So much happens in the course of a week, life is taking on an accelerated pace. Yet also safe and consistent within the confines of "the Champion", our escort for this adventure.
Update Saturday September 19th: We are in Pittsburgh, drove throughout the night from Kingston New York. We are heading out of the Northeast now, Have a show in Pittsburgh tonight, and a show tomorrow in Chicago.
I've really come to appreciate the northeast. I mean we have been up here almost a month... small towns around every bend, toll roads, diners that serve scrapple (I don't like scrapple), microbreweries everywhere that try to "beer us in", and sometimes succeed.
We have met some awesome people, photos of them coming. The Westcott Theater, Tommy Keegan from Keegan ales, our Hibachi chef you see here to the right, Brendon and Justin from The Ramble, Mimi and Christine, folks at WDST woodstock. Dave and chris at 97.7 WEXT (?) We are having a great time, and now we head west to head southeast. We reunite with the Crowes In Oklahoma City in a few days, then Alabama. Love y'all, thanks for everything. Up next... photos of the adult size green machine. Oh yeah and the water pics are from Niagara Falls. Peace

WEXT 97.7, in Troy New York, offered a opportunity to do an in-studio show. Chris and Dave were great to work with and we did an acoustic version of Jump the Ship, Pure Mountain Angel, and Callback.
It's always fun to do these radio shows... this one should be airing in the next few days. Tune in.
That night we drove to Utica New York to open for the Black Crowes at the Saranac Brewery. This is an old brewery complete with antiques...including PT Barnums original desk, a clock valued at over a million bucks, and more. The building reminds me of something out of a horror movie...lots of hallways and creaky doors.
This was a small show with only 1000 special people...and most of them were there for our set. It rained a lot while we played and the audience didn't let it bother them a bit. Great crowd and great fans! Thanks to everyone who made that night very special.
The Black Crowes kicked ass as usual. We snapped this photo so you could see what they played that night.
As they jammed, Old Man Saranac looked down from his bell tower and condemned us all to one heck of a night.
Morning came early and breakfast was cheap... a perfect combo until we do it all over again.
