Winter and The Holidays

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.

This is an original song demo

“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!

New Band “Mojo Blanc”

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…

Last Minute Gig

Jan.29th Facebook Post: – Last minute gig tonight at Milk Bar on Haight St. with “Doc Roberts and Strange Brew”. Featuring Miles Schon on guitar. Strat and Kurzweil are my assignments 🙂

Very exciting last two weeks for me. Getting to go to the NAMM show and perform with the Miles Schon Band was way cool. Then last nights “last minute” gig in the Haight Ashbury district in San Francisco was great fun too. I’m now on keyboards full time when I work with Miles and remembering old keyboard chops and developing new ones has been very cool!

Next Friday the Miles Schon Band will be back at the Fenix in San Rafael. This is a really nice live music venue. I’m looking forward to it!

All the best,

Wil
