My wife and I survived our first Irish wedding. With the ceremony on St. Steven’s Green in Dublin and then the reception in the Wicklow Mts. DJ and my awkward Anglo dancing until 2am. Then the hotel staff went home and the acoustic guitars came out. Singing until 4am! Great fun and we are so happy for our singer/songwriter friends Gary Burke and Katie Burke. They made our life in Dublin rich and full of great music when we lived here for a few years. On to the Americanos to start our day relaxing in Glendalough, Ireland. — at Glendalough.
I hope every one had a fine Mother’s Day yesterday. Here is a quick video from my Mother’s Day gig. What a view up there!! The go pro camera is fun but singers with they’re own video cameras should beware of narcissism 🙂 Ha!
I’m back at this wine tasting room in Saratoga on Wednesday from 5pm to 8pm.
More of my latest video on the “home” page!
So its been a while since I’ve posted anything on my news page. I got pretty busy this last fall between and bunch of solo gigs and some voice over work showing up along with keyboard and bass guitar projects with The Miles Schon Band. I’m not naturally great at managing my time so after feeling pretty over whelmed I eventually learned to “make lists”. A brilliant technique for helping me not freak out about what seemed to be a boat load of booking and voice overs needing to be done. The Wednesday night gigs at The Toll House Hotel in Los Gatos have ended but the weekly solo gigs at the San Jose Fairmont Hotel as well as some of the winter farmer’s markets are keeping my solo material polished. Miles Schon and I continue to perform a duo at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose every couple of week. Our duo material is getting tighter and Miles continues to be a brilliant and rewarding musical partner.
So for 2015 I’m going to focus on re releasing my original EP on iTunes as well as releasing for sale some recordings of the covers I perform solo. I also need to wrangle some new and current video and photos. Thanks to fans and friends for a wonderful 2014 playing music! All the best to all of you for 2015.
“Another Day in Paradise”
This is just a demo right now. I’ll be developing the production and reposting the updated version. I hope you like it!
I’m starting a weekly Wednesday night solo at The Toll House Hotel in Los Gatos, 6pm start!
Really nice day this was. I felt like I was playing in a garden in the space they have the musician set up. Note how nice the Bose Compact columns hold my banner between them 🙂 LOL
I’ve made the move from a gas generator to battery power for my out door gigs. The next step is solar power! Good fun with gadgets and toys for me. Ha!
Well I tried to get a band with this name off the ground in Vail a number of years ago and due to distractions and life changes it never happened. I’ve always liked the name and after partnering with singer Jackie Turner here in the south bay I’ve launched the name, with a band of course, 🙂 again!
I’m on bass guitar in this band with some contribution on acoustic guitar.
I’ve got a fledgling website at mojoblanc.com and we’ve played out a couple of times to rave reviews. We are playing two shows this week end at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, CA. I’ve included a video of us a couple of Saturdays ago playing at the Fairmont. We’re getting calls for more and more dates and bookings this summer so its all looking good for now. Stay tuned…
