Where do you see yourself in the future?

September 8, 2014

bluegrass fortune cookie“Where do you see yourself in 5 years?”  What corporate pinhead came up with this question? I always resented it because I figure there’s only two ways to answer it: feed them some recycled bovine waste they wanted to hear, or answer truthfully “who frikkin knows….maybe dead” and, well, you get the idea.

I’m all for looking over the bow of the boat, but 5 years??  Ask Olympus cameras or Angie’s List employees where they see themselves in 5 years.   What’s important is not so much looking for the light at the end of a tunnel as much as looking for the light at the end of the flashlight.

We don’t know what you’re doing in 5 years and frankly neither do you, but here’s what we hope you’re doing in the very near future, like this Thursday night, September 11, 2014.  The DejaBlue Grass Band points our flashlight squarely in the direction of the Red Light Cafe on Amsterdam Ave. as in, we’ll be playing there and we hope you’ll join us.  Downstroke around 8PM.  
Then we’re rolling up South Cackalacky for the 3rd year in a row for the Pickens Founders Day Festival in lovely Pickens, SC on Saturday, Sept 13th  We play twice, first at 1:45 PM, then again at 8:00PM.  

So to hell with your boss and his stupid questions, come join us!  We won’t ask anything of you other than that you relax and have a great time and we’ll pick you some new tunes we’ve incorporated from the gig we did with some of the members of the Blind Boys of Alabama, and we’ll lay’em on you and we guarantee you’ll feel loved and appreciated.

Speaking of that gig with the Blind Boys, here’s a live cut from that show… Take The High Road.  Enjoy!

Creative Loafing on The DjBGB, etc.

May 29, 2008

Erin Everhart did a nice piece on us on the Creative Loafing website, for which we are grateful!   Erin came  to the CD Release at the Redlight and reviewed our show.   Always a little nerve racking when someone reviews your work, but she was very kind!   Particularly since we were debuting some new original material.  Keith got a lotta love in the article, which was well deserved.  He was “on” to say the least and Erin picked up on it. 

We had another interesting request from a Canadian Radio Station, CKWR in Waterloo, Ontario, and the hosts of “Bluegrass Express:  They requested a CD so we sent one to ’em.  Who knows…maybe we’ll show up on Canadian Radio, ey?

For the next few weeks, all arrows point to Telluride. We’ve got a gig at RedTop Mountain State Park on June 7th, and we’ll be well prepared, but the focus now turns the Bluegrass Band Competition in Telluride.  We’ve carved out a rehearsal schedule and will focus on breaking apart each song meticulously crafting our harmony parts making sure we don’t miss a note.  We’re gonna give it our best shot and see what happens out there.  When we get closer, I’ll do a twice daily update leading up to the competition, beginning June 18th.  We’ll try and put up some video on YouTube as well.  



!!!!!!THANK YOU!!!!!!!
