We’re on a mighty trip! We never get it right! But God grades on a curve You get what you deserve! A song!
By popular demand (not my cat!) I’ll do a Turkey Day share.
This is still in process, and represents my latest project.
It’s called “Neaky Freat.”
It’s about dancing.
I play all the instruments, designed the drums and wrote the tune.
Working on this in iMovie as I migrate to a better interface (DaVinci).
Also getting to know Apple Motion a little better, which is fun!
At this point, I haven’t added the bass guy, some FX and finishing. Continue reading “Neaky Freat”
Here we have a fine local group in Connecticut that goes by the name “Malaena.” It’s a six-piece act and you’ll see they have a team of strong vocalists, including a bass player who sounds just like Van Morrison!
This was a casual outing, where I tested a DJI OM-5 gimbal arm that holds an iPhone. As a result, I was shooting this video in 1080p with my iPhone 6, which is actually software upgraded to an iPhone 7.
The Friday night music scene is alive in the Westerly and Stonington area (RI/CT), where a good variety of musical acts are lined up right through the Columbus Day weekend. At Phoenix Dining and Entertainment in Pawcatuck, CT, the 6-piece pop cover band Malaena took the stage and I was there to capture a few songs.
Duke Robillard and Joe Beard took the stage at the Hygienic in New London, Connecticut Saturday night. Joe Beard’s son, Chris, also brought his band for a well-rounded assortment of rock and blues.
But the night opened with Chris Leigh. The event was organized by Leigh’s drummer, Bobby Christina. On the technical side of things, during the song “Walking The Dog,” the keyboard player tried to hide under his keyboard, but my tracking skills were invincible!
Chris Beard Band, Joe Beard, Bobby Christina, Duke Robillard, Live on September 11, 2021 at Hygienic Art Park in New London, CT
New Englanders remembered September 11th with a wide variety of parades and special events. Westerly, Rhode Island hosted its annual Summer Pops concert in Wilcox Park, there were parades in many communities, and the music menu was very full of events!
In New London, CT, session drummer Bob Christina hosted “Bobby Christina’s Blues Caravan,” with musical legends Joe Beard and Duke Robillard, at the indoor/outdoor Hygienic Art Park on Bank Street.
Here’s Robillard and Beard, with Christina on drums and Tommy Reed (bass). An Eddie Taylor tune called “Train Fare Home.”
I’ve got more with Duke and Joe. Robillard told me he hand-painted the Epiphone guitar he’s playing; it’s pretty fabulous! He actually does commissions for his artwork painted on guitars!
Overall, a great night to experience the essence of blues performed by the greatest musicians around!
Hygienic Art is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to creating an enriching cultural experience in the city of New London Connecticut.

Yes, Sugar’s playing tomorrow (Friday). Yes, I’m going!
It’s a guaranteed ball! People of all shapes and sizes! Today I ran into this video (below) which demonstrates dancing only gets better, the older you get! It takes years to get the steps down, which is why dancing is best with two, because you’ll need a Shirley Temple to properly Bojangles!Continue reading “Old Movie Stars Dance to Uptown Funk”
