  1. It's getting nutty in here.

  3. Whoa. I had probably 30 messages in this folder, including some real humdingers from disgruntled conservatives. One guy back in December wrote "Who's the fascist now, asshole?" Uh... I don't know. Trump? Another sent me a screed against my posts about Scalia's faux intellectualism, essentially bestowing sainthood on the prick. My favorite? 'Stick to music'. Actually no. I'll write what I want, thank you very much. And the beauty is you don't have to read it. Amazing, isn't it?

    But most of the messages were groovy people asking for Hammond help. So that's cool.
  4. Happy birthday to "ophelia", who happens to be my wife Alison!!! She's the best thing that ever happened to me, that is for sure. A more beautiful, loving, and kind partner no man can hope for. I you wish a very happy birthday!
  5. Tonight I'm playing with Spoonful at Moriarty's Pub in Lansing starting at 9pm. Hope to see you there. We have Michael Smalley on bass, Will Rideoutt on guitar, and Geoff Ian Lewis on drums!
  6. The new Hammond XK5 at MusikMesse in Germany. I had the pleasure of playing it in Addison at Hammond HQ about two weeks ago. It is incredible. Can't wait to tell you more.
  7. You know what's weird? A Lansing music scene without Johnny Barrera in it. :(
  8. Birthday pie for the birthday girl, my beautiful wife.

  10. At the Air Zoo with the kiddos.
  11. Some classic Colbert.
  12. New DONATE button

  13. Sleep? What is sleep? 6am flight back to Detroit + 4am taxi to the airport + 1:30am hang with friends = no sleep. But on the plus side, I ditched the hotel shuttle, which would've taken an hour, and grabbed a taxi, which took 30 minutes. I'm glad I did because by 5am (the time the shuttle would've arrived) the security checkpoint line stretched all the way to the other terminal. Sucks to be those folks.
  14. That moment when the back line company is all "What keyboard stand?!?" So you McGuyver that shit up tough!
  15. So my youngest daughter Scarlett bought me an Aladdin sheet music book from the book fair the other day. She presented it to me in my studio and she was so happy. Today she asked me to take it with me so I would think of her on my trip. She is the cutest thing ever.
  16. Heading to New Orleans later this evening to play with Big Apple Blues tomorrow. No joke.
  17. Sometimes it feels like its never enough.
