To day we are in New Jersey. No show tonight.4:00am lobby call tomorrow morning (ughh!) to be on CBS This Morning…then Fox and Friends.
We got to the hotel about 1:45am this morning….after a 4 hour bus ride from Foxwoods….somewhere in Connecticut.
This road life is not for everyone, but it suits me just fine.
So on this much needed day off, I plan to do nothing but rest.
Four shows done.
Eleven to go.
All is well.
We are having so much fun with this all star band.
The band leader is John Hobbs, an dear friend of Vince's and mine.
He has been a much sought after studio musician since the mid 70's
Pat Coil is the other key board player in the band. We have done Christmas shows together since the early 90's.
For fun, just google any of these musicians to see their discography….you will be amazed.
The horn section is The Sapphire Blue Horns…made up of Mike Haynes, Barry Green, Mark Douthit,and Doug Moffat.
Vocals are Jenny Gill and Kim Keyes, and Billy Thomas…who also plays the drums.
The legendary Dave Hungate is playing bass.
Dean Parks is playing guitar….a musical hero to many of us on stage.
I hope everyone is getting rest.
We stayed up awfully late on the bus last night, playing Scrabble….and my favorite card game, Nertz.
Doesn't make a lot of sense to go to bed when you have to unload your bags in the middle of the night at the next hotel….so sometimes we just stay up.
It's a good way to get your days and nights completely backwards.
I continue to be grateful for the opportunity to bring some Christmas spirit to people across the country.
We do…and always will need each other.
Hope this day is peaceful at some point for each of you.
