How Uncharictaristic of Me!

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 to stay up to date.

Friday Night at JP's Funky Little Shack is our LAST SHOW!!!

...On the books, anyway (gotcha!).

Foosh, Gavin, and I are gonna take just a little time off from gigging to start writing for a new album. Don't worry, we won't be gone long, and we have no desire to retire from playing music. We're gonna play the blues 'til the blues takes us over. We want to write a new album together, and the schedule has wound down to the point where we can take a little time for this. I'm already talking to venues all around the north half of Mississippi and into Tennessee and Alabama about booking, and we plan on hitting the road again around the end of February/first of March.

With that being said, I want to personally invite every one of you to JP's Funky Little Shack at Crosstown in Tupelo, Mississippi for our show tomorrow night, Friday, January 10, 2014. The show starts at 9:00 PM and we will be doing our usual thing serving up original blues and reworking some of the blues standards we've been playing for the last seven years. We've also worked up a number of covers that you've never heard us do before, and we have some new originals that have yet to be played in public, so come on out for a night of Booze, Bluez, and Bad Attitudez, the likes of which can only come from the Kevin Waide Project. Help us close this chapter so we can get started on the next one. Who knows, we may even have a few giveaways for some of you lucky ones.

Until tomorrow night, y'all keep on keepin' on.
