photo(5)I am thrilled to announce that I reached a deal with Los Cabos Drumsticks and am now a proud endorser of their products! I have been using their sticks for over a year and I couldn’t be more pleased with the feel and durability of them. Recently, I played an in-store concert with Matt Andersen at Tony’s Music Box in Fredericton, NB. I borrowed a pair of Los Cabos brushes to use and was amazed by their balance and sound. I bought them without hesitation!

Acquiring an endorsement deal is a major step in a drummer’s career. Personally, it is confirmation that I am headed in the right direction and it is gratifying that someone thinks enough of me and my work to support my endeavors. I am truly thankful. I am looking forward to getting a tour of the factory and meeting some of the Los Cabos folks in the near future. Below is a link to Los Cabos’ official new artist announcement. A special thank you goes to Artist Relations Rep Matt Carter for his kind words and assistance.

Last week, I was in Fredericton performing at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Fest. While there, I paid a visit to webmaster Jason Freake and we made a series of pretty interesting drum videos. We used four cameras and recorded the audio with my Q3HD and put up a couple of mics besides. The videos are in the editing stage and I can’t wait to see and show you the finished product! Some of them will be a part of the ‘Drummer’s Birthdays’ series and one is a special project that showcases my rudimentary keyboard skills! The first of them will be posted soon and I hope you enjoy watching them as much as Jason and I did making them! Extra special thanks to Jay for his effort and expertise.

My girlfriend and I just purchased our first home! We are very excited and very terrified! Mostly excited though. Apologies in advance to our new neighbours for the impending wall of sound!

I am working on a video of POGEY’s tour of Alberta. It has been a great time so far! Here is a picture about 8000ft above sea level in Banff up on Sulphur Mountain. Photo taken by Warren Robert.

This post was originally supposed to be a video chronicling a short trip to Saint John to perform at the Salty Jam with the Hupman Brothers Band. We played on the same bill as our good friends Garrett Mason, Keith Hallett, and the Carson Downey Band. Unfortunately, I lost the footage. Instead, here are a few pictures of our trip back.

Scott noticed a funny sound and this was the result. Lucky it stayed on!

Now that I have a little bit of free time, I’m going to kick up my heels and listen to the long anticipated new release by Rush entitled ‘Clockwork Angels’. Anyone who knows me is well aware that I am a HUGE Rush fan. Although my tastes have broadened since high school, when Rush was my primary source of musical fulfillment, I still have a sense of giddy Christmas-like excitement when a release date for a new album approaches. In-depth interviews with the band and recent media buzz has heightened this excitement to the point that I actually pre-ordered an album for the first time! My I-pod has just finished downloading the final track so it is now time to give the album a virtual spin. I will share my preliminary thoughts in the next edition of ‘The Playlist’.

I arrived at my recording session in Bridgetown on Friday afternoon and was immediately alerted to the fact that my car was SMOKING! Further inspection revealed that a misplaced oil cap was the culprit and oil had covered everything under the hood! Not the way I had envisioned my day to begin…

 

Everything went smoothly after that though, and we were able to complete 7 drum tracks when all was said and drum (HA!)

 

 

Extra special thanks to Caleb (my Hup brother) and Mark for an enjoyable weekend of tunes. Looking forward to the finished product! I recorded the proceedings with my Q3HD and will post a clip or two, as well as a video drum track synced up with the cd audio once the cd is ready to release.

 

This just in….
