NEW videos are UP on YOU TUBE!
There was some absolutely amazing performances this PAST weekend at
SHANGRI~ LA in Harmony Park Music Garden in Geneva, MN
HUGE thanks to YOSSI for inviting me out to play for the Harmony Park FIRE camp!
Though I did not get to jam with all the friends I have there (it was SOLD OUT)
They understood that FIRE is not to be taken lightly. It can BURN like the embers of love do. HUGE thanks to WOOKIEFOOT also for allowing me to be a part of the very 1st “SHANG” since it renamed from HARVEST FEST back in 2010. ALSO the wrist bands were PURPLE! Which was the same color that came back around 5 years later.
IRONIC? Maybe but these symbols and signs allow for me to navigate the best way I can through life’s challenges to leave the negativity behind to move forward and manifest a better future starting “Right MEOW!
We are not promised another tomorrow – we can NOT change yesterday.
ALL we can do is recognize and show the most compassion we can share with our
3rd planet from the big Fire ball in the sky.
Whatever you TRULY believe in is not for me to JUDGE.
I share LOVE with all kindred folks that tend to love the banjo
and how it “speaks when my words fail me.”
SO the NEXT few shows are as follows:
THIS WEEKEND (SEPT 19th & 20th in near OMAHA, Nebraska! (see event page below for FB and visit the site (the place is amazing)!
It’s called Bellevue Berry Farm and Pumpkin Patch
They have a WILD WEST and STEAMPUNK theme to this years family friendly fun
*****The hyper link will get you directions and tell you A LOT more about this place than I can.
The following weekend after that I will be attending the Secret Circus Festival
(Time slots for the bands are below)
If you check out the line up below OMG these bands that are playing are AMAZING!
What an honor to be a part of this fun festival in Minnesota
My set is RIGHT before HEATBOX (Aaron Heaton) at 11am on SUNDAY the 27th!
We might have to make an “11:11” am wish with and do a tune WITH Heatbox so we could pop in some beat box/BANJO if he is up for it.
The Week after that Wish will be OCTOBER 2nd &3rd
The honor of playing with some friends I met and bonded with backstage
at Grateful Garcia Gathering 2015 They asked me to play in Terrapin Flyers’ Festival
(see flier below!) ALSO I learned that Chicago’s OWN Family Groove Company‘s
Janis Wallin is sitting in on BASS for them!
YAY ~ That circle comes back around like it did at 3G when I saw her once again ROCK the low end like no other ~ Some know that it was HER invite to SUMMERCAMP that I got to meet so many friends and started off my solo sets with the encouragement of adding banjo into OTHER styles of music like Reggae, Punk, Hip-Hop, DubStep, EDM and being an open minded MUSICIAN. Janis also gave a BASS seminar that year with Victor Wooten (of Bela Fleck & The Flecktones) So I adore watching her approach the BRIDGE between Rhythm & the rest of the bands she shares those LOW notes with.
By October 24th I will be giving a Banjo Seminar in Kansas City for those wishing to attend. Then a show at the WESTPORT SALOON
Mix the blood red clay of Virginia roots with the the black dirt of Iowa and you will find that it resonates inside when listening to Jon Eric's music. Best known for his singing on the east coast, Jon Eric moved to Iowa and picked the 5 string banjo BACK up again and has been discovering outside the box ways of bringing music to new levels never thought possible.
