Making music and pictures

Both are near and dear to my heart. I must find a way to combine them so that one enhances the other.

Each will continue on into eternity after my demise. But I don’t want them continuing on apart from each other as they have been.

I will find a way to unite them. And then you’ll see, feel, and hear the magic, the art, the love that is music and pictures.

Go with the flow, uphill and down

I’m always thrilled when my band packs them in! Take this past Friday night at a local dining spot in downtown Mercer, PA.

J. Hick’s on the Square is managed by Jim Hicks, a fellow musician turned restauranteur. Jim refurbished the place about a year ago and it’s turning out to be one of the better spots in the area for great food, craft beer, and live music of every flavor. Mandolin Whiskey had the pleasure of providing an evening of acoustic rock/folk/bluegrass music the other night and we were thrilled to see a crowd so large that there was hardly anyplace for them to sit, or stand!

I wish I had a nice, clear video to share here but we’ve not taken the time to make one. For the past three or four years we’ve just been goin with the flow. Instead, here’s a few photos of the band and me.
