Big thanks to everyone that came out to our first show as duo.  We had a great time. 

Considering all the new things we were trying, I think it went pretty well.  Some new things this time out: Singing and playing piano for one (remember when I started taking piano lessons back in 2005), improvising over some loops we created on the spot (with a spotty loop pedal that likes to shut off without warning), Edwin playing bass on some songs and guitar on others, generally trying to represent the songs with only 2 people, oh, and me NOT playing a drumset....

But hey, the REAL story for the evening:  Mojo Stew is still cookin'!!!  These guys have not played together for 16 years, except for a couple rehearsals (I heard it was only 2), and they were simply amazing.  Great to see Mojo again, hang with some old friends, and meet some new ones. 

In the mid 80s and early 90s, there was a great original band from Bloomington called Mojo Stew.  They were an awesome R&B pop funk quintet and everyone will be back in town on Saturday, November 24, doing a reunion show at Daddio's in Bloomington. 

It should be quite an event.  As an added plus, the XRAYMEN (former guys from Kool Ray and the Polaroidz) will be opening. 

Also making our first appearance as a 100 Year Picnic duo, playing songs from the new record, Edwin and I will start the show off at 8:00.   Edwin will be playing bass and guitar and I will be making loops, playing piano, playing the acoustic guitar, and hopefully singing.  I've trashed my voice in the last week, but I just know it's gonna be back by the 24th...

Come on out and reconnect with some old friends.
