Getting ready tonight for Hurricane Nicole to make a direct hit tomorrow here in Bermuda - yay :) Got my Perrier, some wine, a bunch of mac & cheese and most importantly - a brain full of songs waiting to be written. So by the time you are reading this newsletter, the eye of the storm will basically be overhead and I will be off the grid. No worries, I got the safety checkboxes all checked and will see you on the other side.
This year's Will Black OPS fan event took place in rural Wisconsin in honour of Tim Deaton's 50th b-day. 3 days of music performances, celebrating, bouncy castles and wobbly pops took place this past Sep 23 - 25 in Waterford, WI with folks flying in from as far away as Norway.
A big shout-out to Tim & Sue Deaton for hosting us and to Brian Tiernan (Boston, USA), Lynnette Holle (Nebraska, USA), Mason Frost (Alabama, USA), Kerry Blakemore (Brighton, UK) and Anne Ragnhild Kroken (Norway) for making the trip. Our little family troupe from Bermuda had a great journey as well.
WE.. ate the best burgers in town at Sobelman's.
WE.. toured the Harley-Davidson Museum (very cool rides there).
WE.. spent an afternoon watching NFL football and playing "Cards Against Humanity" (my favourite of the weekend).
WE.. sang along and rocked out to 3 different acoustic performances.
WE.. enjoyed the warmth & hospitality of rural Wisconsin courtesy The Deatons.

And finally I want to give a quick update on the growing success of my live stream shows that I perform daily on Facebook (except for tomorrow, see Hurricane Nicole above). I started doing these daily first week of September and a month later things are still going strong and slowly growing.
I've finally settled on a schedule that seems to work best. These are free, song request driven shows that you can watch live and interact with OR catch the replay afterwards.
