We had this idea about rounding up some musicians for the BareFootMusicNews “house” blues band that will be known as
Call For Info.

Dan Grigor and I sat around talking about a plan to put it together as a reality-type series of video clips for BFMN. The premise would be: Show those who never get off their rear ends to actually start a band that gets out of the garage and plays paying gigs just how it is done.

Wow, what a month we’re having! Lining up gigs, interviews, new photogs and writers coming on board soon, and I have been madly editing video.

Coming up we have Martin Tour Video #3. (Part Two is here.) It has the cool David Crosby 12-string in it; it’s gorgeous.

We are working right now on another episode of the Birds on a Fender Guitar series. Editing hours of footage down to a song or two is difficult, to say the least.

My buddy Catfish and I were sitting at a dive bar listening to a really good, young band crank out the hits and were wondering why they were playing there. Why not a bigger house with imported beer and maybe some girls in the crowd that wouldn’t scare your mom? They were really good! We bought them beers and talked to them. Turns out they just didn’t have a clue how to go about it. They were lucky to get this gig. They did no promotion, they had no demo, no website, no myspace, no flyers — but they loved to play and practiced all the time. They had been playing together for years and on this gig they were the opening act. They were not getting paid and the beers we bought were the only drinks I saw them with.
