I actually jammed the Spirit in the Sky groove while Colleen told a story about meeting Fleetwood Mac's producer ... I tried man!

The review is this:

AWESOME.

We had a killer night, and Eric got a couple videos (he filmed my two newest songs in fact) ... I played Tube and did not screw it up~!

All of the Animals followed my set - I'm a fan. These guys are very cool, great musicians w/good songs. No guitarist though - ukulele and saxaphone!

Then was the Grass Gypsys' set, and I sat in for five or six tunes. Great food, great tunes, good recordings, good times ... Eric's camera went on the fritz though about halfway thru, and we couldn't seem to get it back off the fritz.

Anywayz I'll post it once I've edited it. I've been real busy since Friday and it takes a considerable amount of time. You'll be able to hear my quietly working out the "Spirit In The Sky" guitar part too.

I've played in San Diego, but that's really not typical at all. Although I might play a show in LA over the winter.

Basically southern New England is the territory. I'm reasonably & foolishly optimistic enough to believe there's more travel in store for me though. I love to travel, I want to play music as much as possible, and at 36 yrs old I can safely say that yes, I still want to do this for real Mr Naysayer School Guidance Counselor. And you know, there are disc golf courses all over this country that are probably not far from music venues. I got some work to do. Gas to buy. Fast food items to select.

Kevin Silvia ~ All of the Animals ~ The Grass Gypsys 11/20/2009 @ Out of the Blue Art Gallery, Cambridge MA

I opened things up with a solo set, then joined Grass Gypsys for a few in the middle of their set. But perhaps most relevant to OKP: Played "Tube", second-to-last (I think) in my set. Please download & enjoy as much as you want.

^Spirit in the sky tease is in there man. You ever hear it? After "Say You Love Me", around the 4.20 mark.

:ugeek:

Thursday night I got about 20 minutes down the road for my gig in Newport at the Barking Crab, and realized I forgot to bring the recording unit. I have mixed feelings about that gig. They paid me $50 and I got a free meal, and there was no audience. They gave the same deal to two other performers, and IMO nothing about our work really made that money well spent for them. It sounded nice, sure, but it wasn't really working you know? And oh - the thing is we were expected to play originals, so it was like ... originals? sandwich? $50 check? awesome! But awkward to play to an empty bar. But the fact that the gig was a dud kinda makes up for me forgetting to bring the recorder. In a double negative sorta way.

Friday night was my first time playing at the Tavern with someone other than my brother ... he and I have worked in this room for years and Friday I played instead w/Grass Gypsys. I'm so stoked to report that we went over really well, and the owners and staff, and the crowd that's accustomed to Silvia Brothers, all seemed to really love what we did. The only bummer is that I didn't capture the entire four hours. Ran out of room cuz I didn't manage it right & missed a few songs, including the Farmhouse & Silent Night encore we did.

Then Saturday night was pretty cool. I managed not to screw up that recording, and we played okay. It was a little weird because this is the first time I can remember doing an entire set of originals with this band F000. Actually it's our first gig playing any real amount of our stuff together in probably 15 or 16 years. It's basically a two man band, but with a drummer for shows. I certainly don't have any other recordings of us doing an all-original set, and it came out pretty good. But these songs are between 10 & 22 years old. I think there are three or four that we wrote in 1987, several from '89-91, and maybe one or two more recent ones. But yeah, that was a far out gig.

From my gig this past Friday night - our first time playing "Stealing Time from the Faulty Plan"!

It was somewhat botched as you'll hear ... I sang the second verse first, and Colleen and Justin barely know the song still! Still a decent recording, and ... and I love this song. :)

^ hell yeah, Kevin!! just listened to it, sounds damn good for the first time played. you and Colleen blend really well vocally. i'd say in an acoustic setting like that, maybe speed up the tempo a bit to see what that does. regardless, once that familiarity comes for the other two, it'll make a world of difference!

Vocals? VOCALS?? What about the bitchin' solo from about 2 minutes to about 2 and a half, huh? WTF Will, God. Gahd.

:wave: :D

Thanks srsly man.

And the internet continues to astound. I was able to share that so easily, really.

Drinking a Vinyl Lager, by Magic Hat. Spring seasonal.

Wait, what thread are we in?

Here's the whole mondo jumbo supersized Tavern show that the Stealin Time comes from. It's literally over 3 and a half hours of music, and I don't know the exact ratio, but maybe it's half that's original tunes. Enjoy if you do download, cuz otherwise, f*ck, that sucks if you don't enjoy it. You better just enjoy; it's better.

Damn good. I really need to come up your way for a show, by hooks or by crooks. Acoustic faulty, just great.

I just had such a fun gig it's ridiculous. I think I had too much fun somehow, and there's gonna be a fine or a penalty or jail time or something.

Nothing really crazy, I just have a crazy amount of excitement about how much I'm enjoying this music. This band's been a blast.

We did like fifty, sixty songs tonight at the Tavern in Plainville MA and it was just so damned fun. We've been rehearsing A LOT and really polishing it up, and I'm full of smiles all the time about it. Felt like I played well, and maybe broke some new ground somehow tonight. Certainly feel more solid with this ensemble than ever. And it was a successful night in terms of attendance, interaction w/staff, pay & tips, stuff like that. And the recording came out really nice taboot.

Exciting, man. We got a house party gig together tomorrow too.

^ Had a great time. : )

Thanks for inviting me to hear your music, Kevin.... totally sweet.

The best part was all the impromptu Irish-Folk dancing which busted out during many-a-tunes.

Go Irish!!

Really glad you could make it, and great to meet in person. :thumbup:

I barely slept. We hung around the kitchen for hours after you left talking and munching and stuff.

Just such a nice party really, ... a great house and plenty of guests and plenty of drinks.

The Irish stuff just makes for all kinds of merriment. Nice to add those to the repertoire.

I'm getting started on the editing process; the recording seems to be pretty okie with a little bit of dokie.
