I played one final show Saturday before shit gets crazy next week and I was joined by none other than my best pal Andy Gould (of Andyhasaband and Funzzle) at Raven Hollow Winery in our hometown of Westfield. Gould is one the the most entertaining songwriters I have ever had the pleasure of sharing the stage with. We split up the first half of the night with two short sets each and closed out the last portion of the night together, which was an absolute blast.
We played a tear-jerking rendition of "Falling Slowly", a few old country tunes and some of our separate original tunes. Andy sang a few verses of the "Gimmie Gimmie Blues," which was a sight to see. He even let me borrow his guitar for a few songs, which was fun! I've never really gotten to play one plugged in before, especially one as nice as his, and has inspired me to someday purchase an electric-acoustic of my own! One thing at a time...
The evening was a total blast and I look forward to harassing Andy into playing with me more. There are talks of Gould releasing a solo E.P but this chatter is unconfirmed. The second I get any news, I shall let you know. Sharing the stage with people you love is so special. I'm lucky to have such a talented, badass pal.
That's enough corniness for now!
I look forward to seeing you at the Parlor Room ON SUNDAY. (already?!)
