I woke up the next morning Albuquerque and got my coffee and headed on the road to Tempe Arizona. I tend to drive pretty slow so I can save on gas mileage is not too much Moto my van so it usually takes me about an hour more over the estimated time but I did pretty good today.
I arrived in Tempe around 3 o’clock and met up with my friend Monique. She was hosting a wonderful dinner with friends and a red chair production filming of me. I was really excited to be able to do this as I have been a fan of the many videos that they have shot over the years.
Everyone was very friendly and kind it just felt like an immediate connection with them. Some of the folks I had met last year but I have played in Tempe. For the video shoot went really well I felt very comfortable and have a good time Britain Zogg found it with her boyfriend worm, acting as her assistant. I am really excited to see how it turned out.
After the filming it was time to eat. Monique prepared the delicious meal consisting of vegetarian chili and homemade poblabo pepper cornbread. And then, if that wasn’t enough we had a dessert that you also made from scratch; candied pineapple pie. Sooooo good!
We set around in a food coma for a while and then it was time to go load in at the Yucca Tap. The other banner canceled I was asked to do an extra long that which was fine with me. I got fed up and there was the valley fever DJ Dana Armstrong spinning awesome country music. And I said began and I was able to play a whole ton of new songs and crunch out the current stuff. It was a great night.
