It's been a good summer so far, with some fun gigs and lots of time spent with Elmer! This past Thursday, Swing Memories played at Warren's Jazz Bistro
to a full house. There were so many people that came to listen and dance, they ran out of tables! I've posted a set of pictures
on the Swing Memories website
, so go take a look!
I was talking to the manager after the gig and he was very interested in having us play there every month. I'll definitely let everyone know next time we go back.
Also I've been working on music for St. Mark's, recording and writing several new songs, practicing instruments, teaching students and rehearsing with the band. Elmer is a great little companion throughout the day. He reminds me, now and then, that there are other things that in life other than music. (Like feeding him, playing with him, changing his diaper... etc.)
I've started feeding him some rice cereal each day, as you can see from the picture here. He's getting better at it; the mysteries of swallowing solid food are slowly revealing themselves to him.
