Rocking Out 2008

The last full-band performance I've had in a long time (and it had been a while before this one) was in the Fall of 2006. Brian & Christy Dolinger were in town. We hooked up with Matt Sammons, Andrew Fletcher, and James Brown (Christy's brother) and threw together a show in like two days to play a Ju Go Ju function. It was a dress up function, so we went as the "Black-Eyed P's." You'll see what I mean by that later. For those of you who didn't know me in college, I was in a band called "Soma" with Brian Dolinger. He and Christy are dear, dear friends of ours. I never thought we'd get to reunite for a show, and this was such an exciting thing for me.

But from here to the end of 2008, I'm going to try and live up to what my profile claims about my guitar skillz.

So every other Monday, I'm going to bring you a song clip from either our practice together, or our show.

Today, I encourage you to enjoy some Pachabel Jam. This is what we used to warm up.


  1. There are those of us who know full well your skills. I enjoyed every Soma show I could attend. Always good to see you're playing. Did Soma release a CD after I left campus?

  2. I love this! Reminds me of "Explosions in the Sky."

    And that just a warm-up. I'm glad this will be a regular fixture for the rest of the year. And I do still enjoy my Soma songs from time to time on the iPod.

  3. haha...thanks for the kind words, guys.

    Mr. Tuesday: Yes, we did actually record a CD, and I would love to send you a copy. Facebook me with your address and I'll get one on the way.

    III: Glad you have enjoyed yours. My love for music runs deep, and nothing makes me happier than when people appreciate some of the art I try to create.

    More to come...

  4. Sweet, I'm looking forward to more!

  5. Hey, I filmed this...

    didn't I?

  6. J.: It was either you or Caro who did. You actually show up in a video which I'll be posting later.

  7. Looks like a lot of fun. I still play the soma cd every now and then. Good stuff.

  8. never heard anybody rock out to pachabel before... awesome job!
