Out On the Weekend

Just a quick note here from room 120 at the Quality Inn in sleepy Effingham, IL–we’re about to saddle up and head north: playing the SideBar at FitzGerald’s in Berwyn, IL tonight, soon as the John Hiatt show in the club wraps up, which I think will be 9 or so. Hope to see you there! Tomorrow we’re at House of Bricks in Des Moines IA (no matter what the BandsInTown listing might say), closing out the 2nd day of Little Big Fest, going on at 7:30 or so. We’ll be doing some songs from the forthcoming release, plus who knows what else. Old songs, new songs. Where’s my coffee? What am I thinking? Come on out this weekend, and find out . . . I’m proud and lucky to have the great rhythm section of Ron Eoff on bass and Paul Griffith on drums.

Remember: sponsorship campaign for the new release continues just a few more days, til Nov. 30. Come on in; there’s still room. Click the “Let’s Make a Record” tab at the top of any page here and you can find out all about it. We’re mixing the record right now and I gotta say that it’s sounding great—coming together like you always hope a recording project will. Looking forward to sharing it with you!

Be careful out there–hope to see you soon!

A skinny little slice of daylight

is all that falls between dawn and dark, during these narrowing days of the year. Or so it seems. The light deprivation affects me more than I’d care to admit–and it’s partially why I’ve been so quiet over the last month or so. Sorry for the silence, but I guess if you know me at all, you know by now that I’m not just another 24/7/365 self-promoting shell of a man! (Not to say that such a thing can’t be done with integrity, ha ha.) Even though keeping it real, staying true to whatever you’re feeling at any given time, can seem like a detriment to one’s “success”, that, my friends, appears to be my default setting. Feeling better now–getting adjusted, I guess. The jogging regimen has been such a good thing; though working through my two miles in below 40 weather earlier today was a special feeling! I’ll get used to it, or I’ll just go to the Y.

Now: onward, upward! It’s gonna feel good to drive down to Duluth, Georgia in the heated and still-functioning wobble-wagon and play this show with my friends Webb Wilder and Tom Gray on Friday:

Next week, I’ll be back on the road in trio formation, with Ron Eoff and Paul Griffith, playing FitzGerald’s in Berwyn, IL on Friday(11/21), in the front room adjacent to the SideBar, immediately following the John Hiatt show in the main club. And on Saturday(11/22) it’s Little Big Fest, brought to you by the Des Moines Music Coalition, at House of Bricks in beautiful Des Moines, IA. We’ll close out the night on Saturday, starting at 7:45pm.

Sponsorship Campaign: Only a couple of weeks left to get in on the sponsorship campaign; we’re closing it out at the end of this month. Thanks again, so much, to all of you who’ve become such an integral part of the new project–we’re very excited to share it with you, as soon as possible! Sponsors, stay tuned for updates on the exclusive sponsor page–we’ll be heading back into the studio very soon(tomorrow, actually) to finish the last little bit of recording, then we’ll mix it all and see what this wild bird is that we’ve conjured. Here’s the skinny:

If you prefer not to deal with PayPal, you can send a check or money order to: Kevin Gordon Music, P.O. Box 60493, Nashville TN 37206.  Please include your email address so that we can confirm receipt of your sponsorship purchase in a timely manner, and keep you apprised of the progress of the project.

Hope to see you out there soon, friends! Safe travels and travails.

November blew in strong and cold around here last night–I got to save some of the Halloween candy for myself since the tricking and treating numbers were down–not that I’m happy about that! Anyway, I’m starting the month with an outdoor set this morning (41 degrees by 11am, maybe . . .) at the East […]

This Weekend

I’m taking a short break from loading the landsled with guitars, amps, and other provisions, to tell you where I’m headed: Tomorrow, Friday Oct. 3, I’ll be at Ashland Coffee & Tea in beautiful Ashland, VA, a fantastic place to play a show, or see one. On Saturday Oct. 4 I’ll play another of my favorite […]
