it looks like we will be performing poolside this month at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, CA.   the Langham is a beautiful hotel with excellent service.  it is a pleasure to be of service to the Langham and all of the guests who enjoy a sunny Summer day by the pool.

Playing at the Surf and Sand Resort on the 4th of July!

i mentioned in my previous post that i am several videos behind schedule.  this is a good issue, as it is a reminder that we are fortunate to have a lot of work.  i’ve decided to try a different approach in regards to this video creation.

i will start posting videos of our most current events quickly, and once a week i will post another video of our past events.   i believe in a few weeks, i will be caught up with all of my videos.  yay!

so here is our most current video at the moment.  fun times at the beautiful Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach, California.   not too bad of a place to enjoy the 4th.

Party with the Parrotheads at the Mai Tai Bar! 2/11/12

as i sit and write this post, i am 20+ videos behind schedule.  this means there are videos from our recent past that have yet to be created and posted.  why do i create these videos?

1.  it is a journal of my life as a working musician.  no smoke and mirrors, no huge budgets, no slick over produced videos…….just a simple account of each of our performances.

2.  i hope that these vids may be of service to any other future aspiring working musicians, crafters, etc.

i have been a full-time working musician for a little over 20 years.  i’m not super wealthy, nor do i have a trust fund, or rich parents who give me money.  this is what i do to survive.  i sing for my supper.

this lifestyle is not for everyone.  yes, it has been very difficult at times, but it has also been a wonderful way to go through life.  i like to be of service, and i enjoy providing a space and atmosphere for people to relax and celebrate.  it’s my gig.  it’s what it do.

3.  these videos are a good way for us to advertise our services to potential customers.  if you want to know what we do, just watch a few videos.  if you like what you see, cool.  if not, then more power to you!

my notes on this video:

1.  pho is delicious!

2.  Shiborigirl makes an appearance, joining us for a bowl of pho.

3.  this is our first time performing at the Mai Tai Bar in Long Beach, California.  fun place with a relaxed island vibe.

4.  Parrotheads are always fun people to party with!

5.  in this video, i hold the video camera with my left hand while i play steel drum with my right hand.  they didn’t teach me this technique in music school.

we like to read your comments!

 

cool…

Phil
