Holiday Special 2012
Last night was the Yacht Rock Holiday Special 2012, once again back at the sold out Variety Playhouse. This year featured a horn section of Jordan Shalhoup (from the Schooner), Paul Poovey, and Eric Alexander. Great playing!
Wow--what a show! Some things were sloppy/horrible/temporarily catastrophic on my part (Hip to Be Square solo, All Night Long intro, parts of Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Raspberry Beret), but I played good solo stuff on Good Thing and L.A. Lindsay, and got lucky when I screwed up the recorded solo on She's Gone and improvised something decent on my own. Take that, Joe Farrell.
Congratulations to everybody at Pleaserock: Nick, Pete, Kristen, Esther, and Nackers--for putting together a hugely successful event!
