New York New York

I am here in New York City doing a show at the Intercontinental Barclay. It is nice to be in Manhattan at a super nice hotel living like I have the money to stay at a place like this!

The local company that provided the gear is Staging Horizons out of Long Island, and they are really great! Chris the Staging Horizons tech showed up right on time, and rocked out the setup like a mad man... We worked with him in Chicago on a really difficult show and he was a rock star then as well!

The setup went smoothly... no problems. Some minor changes to the room set, so we had to rip up some tape and move some cables, but no worries.
My friend Frank who lives in the city came over in the pouring rain and had a few drinks with Scotty and I, and then we went a couple blocks away and had some good old New York Pizza, a real treat for me!

It was great to catch up with Frank... He is doing well and enjoying his life here in NY, and that makes me happy. I just wish I got to work with him every now and then.

The show goes from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm with a 1 hour lunch. Then we strike some gear and are off to the airport. I will be in Greensboro around 11:15 tonight. I am heading off to Orlando on Tuesday... my second least favorite place to do shows, the least favorite place being Vegas.

Today should go without incident... the worst thing that has happened, is that Scotty got back to his room last night and the bathroom was emitting a nasty sewage smell. So, he called the MOD, and they gave him a new room. We helped him carry all his stuff over to the new room, and the problem was solved.

Thats all I got for now....
