Viewing: Kenny Loggins - View all posts

Back At The Coach House! 

Had a last minute show at the Coach House on Saturday assisting with guitar and vocals for my good friend of many years, singer-songwriter, Jay Nixon. (CLICK HERE to hear me play and sing on a track from his CD)
He opened for "maxi-instrumentalist" David Lindley, who I'm sure you've heard on many albums such as Jackson Browne and Warren Zevon, to name a couple. (You know that slide guitar on "Running On Empty"?)

The Coach House was the same venue where I was "off-stage" enjoying Kenny Loggins and Blue Sky Riders wow the house back in September 2015. Cool-being on the very same stage.


The chips, the salsa, the setlist, the dressing room

Let's have chips!!

Blue Sky Riders, Kenny Loggins, Idina Menzel 

Within the space of a week a got a chance to witness on stage two of my favorites (three actually).

Kenny and I "go way back" (Definition: He was a musical inspiration - an idol as they say - in my formative, unformal musical studies) Some real good music happening with Blue Sky Riders. Here's a video, the only one, from the very show I was at:

I've been a fan since, a number of years ago while on the road, I found a used CD of the Wicked Musical in a Goodwill store in downtown Bakersfield for 25 cents! I loved her voice, but had know idea who she was. I was like, "Who is this voice?"

Very cool finding videos  of the concerts you were at on YouTube. :)
