First outdoor show for us, on June 27th, 2015. Great time had by all, and Sarah and Amy sounded excellent, this time plugged in, for the neighbors to hear. Makes me wanna do more outside shows.....one a year, whadda ya say Janet! Buddy's from college back again, and the weather held off. A lucky group of around 15 of us were treated to a great screen house show by Sarah, for another hour plus......lots of fun. YOU SHOULDA STAYED!!!! Trying to make the summer drag on, but really looking forward to Crhis Trapper now, 9/26, should be great. This one will be indoors, unless the weather shows to be clear and warm in advance. If you're interested in that show.....let me know, seats will go for this one. Working on a March show for 2016, possibly for Ward Hayden and Dave DeLuca. Sarah's been here twice, Amy twice, and Ward needs to come back, this time with a badass guitar slinger, Dave DeLuca. The two of them play real well together.....better than well.....effin great. Stay tuned.

I had to. Something made me. I went to another Bob show. Hadn't seen 'em in 9 years, and he was better than I dreamed. Seeing I could listen to him read the phone book, when he sounded stronger than I could imagine, it was perfect. He did look like anyone could kick his ass, but he looked great. Always decked out, and the band, one of the baddest in the land, sounded incredible. if you don't get it, don't bother. If you've never seen 'em, don't bother. If you don't speak Bob, don't bother. Now if I can just get 'em to return my calls, and get 'em to Studio 84. A man can dream.

The next two shows for us at Studio 84 will feature some of the best that Boston area music has to offer. Ward Hayden, together with Sarah Borges, in October, and then the following March, we will host Amy Black. All three of these artists know each other quite well. It's interesting when you find out about one, it leads you to another, and inevitibley, they're connected somehow. On another note, much like six degrees of separation, most things musical have some trace, however minute, of Bob. That is, there is some connection, even if it's just an influence, to the almighty Bob, the Big D, Zimmy, Blind Boy Grunt, Bob Dylan. It all comes back to Bob, and that will lead us to our next blog.

First show, with Greg Trooper, turned out to be an overwhelimng success. Basically, it was.....folkin', great. 36 in attendance, and a good time had by all. Thanks to those who came, and to those who reached out afterwards. Greg was as good as can be, and was nice enough to let me invade his space for one song, which sent me on cloud nine, and I eventually, I came back down to earth, roughly two days later. Accomodating as ever, Greg topped off the night, by playing the mandatory Bob song, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues....total bliss. He was also nice enough to stick around, and I got a chance to play with him and a friend, for about an hour. More peices of heaven, while I was left pinching myself, and asking, "am I really playing with GT?"....yes. I don't quite know how to top this first show, but I will be trying, along with the help of Janet, who needs to be on board, as she works hard at helping things run smooth, couldn't do it without her. Why I wouldn't have Greg back, is beyond me, so if you were at the show, expect another invite, maybe sometime next year, for an encore performance.

First Blog ever. Virgin Blogger. In hopes of this actually going practically viral, Studio 84 House Concerts, will be having their first show in February of 2014, with the great Greg Trooper. The "other guy" from New Jersey, not be confused with some guy known as the Boss. After stumbling on Greg's music maybe ten years ago, it's the kind of sound that stays with you. Covered by other artists, he's someone who should have, could have, and maybe would have, had bigger sucess, but as to why not, who am I to say? Regardless, he'll be in our living room, playing as troubadors do, singing his heart out, for your enjoyment (as well as his own). Put him on a train, point him to a show, he'll even take a cameo, wind 'em up and watch 'em go.....this first show at Studio 84 will be perfect with Greg Trooper.
