Back home again in Champaign

It's always nice to be "home" again, and having lived in so many locales, it's easy to get that feeling in a lot of places. Last night back "home" was Champaign, IL. However, we played a venue that I had somehow missed during the years that I lived there. Mike 'n' Molly's was great. We played outside in the beer garden. Bob did a stellar job of running a really great sound system. We even had fancy lights! [smile] I'm not sure that I've ever heard "outdoor" music sound so fine. I'm sure that will be the best sounding show of the tour.

Not to mention having Talia back on board. Things always sound better with cello. Period.

I'm really looking forward to the first week of July when Talia is actually in Colorado with me, playing some shows and laying down tracks on two of the three upcoming Dan Beahm projects. Keep an eye on the Renaissance Boy Calendar to see when and where we'll be playing in Colorado.

It was grand to see all our Champaign-Urbana friends. Thanks to all who braved drinking on a school night to enjoy friendship and music in the beauty of Mike 'n' Molly's beer garden!

And thanks to Murph for being such a swell guy.
