As you may have heard, I'm now touring singing back up for Joe Walsh and It's been so much fun!! :) In the past month we've done shows at festivals, the ampithearter at the Ohio zoo, played on TV for Good Morning America and in Nashville for the Country Music Television show Crossroads with Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top, Kenny Chesney and more (You can see the show on CMT Saturday 6—- at —)
His fans are so loyal, they literally know the lyrics of every song. We're doing songs from his past with the James Gang (Walk Away and Funk#49), The Eagles (Life in the Fast Lane and In the City), his previous solo albums (Rocky Mountain Way, Life's Been Good to Me So Far) and his first new album in 20 years "Analog Man".
But beyond that, what's really great is working (and having a blast) with Joe, his wife Marjorie, the band and crew even when we're stuck on planes or tour buses for hours.
The rehearsals for the tour were even fun. Sometimes we'd just sit around with Joe playing the guitar on the couch while Leslie, Ricky and I practiced blending our harmonies.
I'm now getting to write this that we're back from our latest trip to New York City. I've had a few days off – though I've kept busy and will be singing at the Solstice Festival tomorrow night Friday 6-22-12 at 7:30.
I'll try to post more often as our tour continues. Soon we'll be on the road again and in the first two weeks of July we'll be in: Illinois (2 shows), Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Kansas and Iowa (2 shows) – Yay! I'm getting to see the whole country :) For more tour date check out www.joewalsh.com/events
Please keep checking back, I'll send you notes and pics from the road!
