I've been kinda quiet lately. This extreme winter weather we've been having has me in a bit of a funk, and the desire to come up with something to write about hasn't been there, so I've opted to just keep my mouth shut for the most part. As the saying goes, "It's better to be quiet and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!" and my mouth tends to get me in quite a bit of trouble sometimes, so you understand, I'm sure. I've also been having some trouble out of my laptop, and I think I just lost the hard drive (along with 2 years of files that haven't been backed up!), so things may still be spotty for a bit longer. Gotta live 'em to play 'em, right?
The guys and I have been working up some new material. We have some newer songs that haven't been played out, yet, and I think we've got them worked up well enough that you should start hearing them real soon.
I have made it a point, during our short hiatus, to get out and see some of the incredible talent in the area: a trip to Columbus a couple of weeks ago to see Tupelo's own Spunk Monkees, and last weekend to see the John West Band and sitting in with Corinth's Sweet Tea Jubilee. I rarely get to see my friends play, and it's always nice to have a weekend (or 3) off! All good things must come to an end, though, and we start back next weekend at Woody's in Tupelo. For that matter, I will be solo at JP's Funky Little Shack in Tupelo this Saturday night, so if you're not busy, come on out and have a few drinks with me. If nothing else, it will be fun. We sure hope to see you at one of the shows soon, so be sure to keep an eye on www.kevinwaide.com/shows to stay up to date.
