Contrary Cocktail

Moderne Shellac, 2015

Contrary Cocktail

A hypnotic blend of rhythms, landscapes, tones, colors, styles and moods, with melodies leading the way to certain places that only songs without words can go.

-- Pieta Brown, 2015

A rainy start to the day here in South Palm Beach then mostly cloudy but I managed about three hours on the beach and in true resort fashion had lunch there on my chaize lounge.  

 

We had a mid-afternoon 30 minute flight north to Melbourne, Florida and tonight’s show was at the King Centre For The Performing Arts.  Sort of a strange theatre layout, a shallow first floor and a large, deep balcony.  No matter, it was a lovely audience, and another ‘first’, we’d never played here before.  Three shows from the end of the tour and the band is still hitting on 12 cylinders and surprising itself.  A wonderful show tonight.

 

It’s also heading into the ‘lasts’.  Tomorrow is the last day off before quite a number of days off.  I cleared out my side of the wardrobe trunk tonight.  From here out I’ll bring what I need to the gig and take it back after.  Two shows left.

 

It was a runner to the Legacy and the short flight back to South Palm Beach.  Tomorrow looks like another day on the beach and dinner somewhere with my wife who has joined me for the final leg.

 

So long,

 

Richard
