The Daylights & Andy Davis – 2011 No Reverse Tour

Wow… so it’s closing in on November already. 2011 is going by in a blaze… just like every other year. The older I get, the more I realize how quickly the time flies. It’s like the week of summer camp on a grand scale: Monday would always seem to take FOR-EH-VAH and you’d be digging every moment. Then the next morning you’d wake up and have to pack up because…

Needtobreathe on The Tonight Show

Needtobreathe - The Tonight Show

I received a call last week that Needtobreathe was going to be playing a one-off gig for the Tonight Show with Leno and needed a couple extra hands running the show since most of their crew and gear was on the road in Randomsville, America headed to the next spot on the Taylor Swift tour. I admit getting a little excited about it since the last time I’d been to…

OneRepublic @ the Ryman

OneRepublic

Back in March I was asked by OneRepublic’s tour manager to help them shoot a quick video of the encore performance for the first night’s show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Just found that video again during the course of revamping the site and thought I’d share. The group playing with them are called Sons of Sylvia who are apparently are Ryan’s cousins that he had invited to come…

If You’d Have Asked Me 7 Months Ago…

iPhone Photo Map

If you’d have asked me 7 months ago what I’d be doing in 7 months, I probably wouldn’t have been able to call the ball too well. It’s funny, interesting, and a bit unnerving how life can throw you a big curve ball from time to time. Occasionally it ends up being right where you were aiming though and the ball goes screaming down the 3rd base line. Having been…

Daylights Parlotones Tour – New York

New York City

Today we drove into the belly of the beast that is New York City. I don’t think I’ve ever been as simultaneously enamored and stressed out by one place as I am by the small morsel of metropolis that we experienced today. Being a small town fellow at heart, I’ve always been a bit overwhelmed by exceptionally large crowds of people all in a hurry going no place in particular….

Daylights Parlotones Tour – Nashville

Nashville In The Rain

Before I left LA on this tour run, someone told me to “enjoy [my] vaca” which almost made me laugh outright. I must admit that before venturing out on the road tour managing, I assumed that it would be a bunch of music, fun, and games with the hardest part of touring being spending a few hours in the van every other day. (come to find out it’s more like…

Kids these days…

Kids these days… What a great condescending phrase. My favorite part is that I’m at the age where it’s a double edged sword to be wielded for or against me depending on the situation. For example, I refuse to abbreviate normal words in text messages, insist on correct punctuation, and prefer to call a girl I’m interested in on the phone or talk in person rather than using Facebook or…
