I’ve been working on this for quite a long time now. As you can (hopefully) tell when you watch it, it was quite a big thing to organize. Thanks to everyone who drove, acted, or worked as crew for this video. I hope you enjoy it! If you do, please consider sharing the YouTube link to your Facebook friends and help spread this video to some new viewers.
Here’s the official press release from Fritz Media:
That’s right! This Sunday, October 11th, the lovely Heather Quee and I will be getting married. The ceremony will take place around 8pm, followed by Aidan Miller’s band, and some jamming. I’ll be broadcasting as much as I can on the live cam. You can tune in on the sidebar on the home page, or visit the live cam page here.
Update: You can watch the entire archived wedding video here, including all the great music performed by Aidan Miller, Michael Kaeshammer, The HiFi, Locarno, Gene Hardy, and more!
Today there’s a new article in Nexus Magazine about my new album, Another Time Around. The album has been getting plenty of press, so I decided to make a new page on the website that compiles all the press I’ve had over the years. There’s press from this album, the last one, and other bands I’ve had such as Trombone Mayhem. There’s even a German article about The Paperboys. You can check all that out here.
The band played a really fun show at Butchart Gardens last night. It’s a great stage to play – great sound, big audience. I live streamed the show and it turned out very well. If you’d like to watch the complete show you can check it out here:
I know – it’s the number one question on everyone’s mind. Have no fear, I’ve solved it.. what would Van Halen sound like on the trombone? Well, here you go! For any trombonists who want to try out my chart, it’s here. Any for Victoria locals who want to see this with a live band, the band I play in every Sunday at Darcy’s Pub – The Southern Urge – plays Jump with a full band and 3 horns.
…UPDATE: The Facebook version of this video is really taking off! Lots of shares, and the number of views is growing fast. Check here to find it if you’d like to see how it’s doing. Though I notice the YouTube version (especially if you select 1080p HD) has much better sound and video quality than Facebook, even when you turn on HD on the Facebook version.
Thanks for making the CD release shows in Victoria so successful! Check out a video of the show here.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the CD release shows in Victoria at Hermann’s Jazz Club! Both shows sold out, and in fact I must say I’m sorry to the 20 or so people who came each night but were unable to get in. We would have loved to let you in, but the fire marshall did indeed come on our second night to make sure we weren’t over capacity.
It was a great audience on both nights; the band and I had a great time performing! In case you missed it, or if you’d like to watch it again, you can check out the archived stream from my live cam right here! The stream unfortunately cut out about 3 songs to the end of the show, but apart from that it looks and sounds pretty good. Hope to see you at another show soon! And if you haven’t yet signed up for my mailing list it really helps me out if you do that so I can let you know the next time we perform!
West My Friend performs for the first 45 minutes, and then my band goes on.
It’s finally here! Another Time Around is out! The best place to get it is personally at a show, but you can also get the physical album with the nifty ‘lenticular print’ cover at CD Baby. You can also get the MP3’s at CD Baby or iTunes, or through the embedded store here (and on the album page).
