Last Saturday night, Halloween night, with trepidation I ventured to Cactus Jack’s Saloon. Alone. Rick was in Fort Collins. I’m not exactly a social butterfly. Or a barfly. Or a night person. But I wanted to see Cort and Dean play a night gig. Dean is an architect, owner of EV Studios. The studio right above my grooming shop, he’s also my landlord. Cort’s business, Relish Studio, was two doors down from the grooming shop. He also lives within ’bout shoutin’ distance from my house. Both musicians, several years ago they started jamming weekly in Dean’s office. Using the shop as refuge while waiting to pick up a kid from whatever keeps kids busy, Carol often heard their music. I didn’t hear them until their first gig one beautiful afternoon this summer, on the deck at Cactus Jack’s, next to Bear Creek.
They were darn good then. They were great last Saturday night. My friends RAWK! And pick. And sing the blues…
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me
Like the wind and the rain
Like a south-bound train
Okay, I’ve got a question. Please give me feedback! I’ve had a request to put the music back throughout the website. It’s currently set to loop once (play once) when opening the homepage the first time. Some months ago I changed it from continuous loop. What do the rest of you think about the music? Once? Continuous?
I just had to do it. Hope Kim doesn’t mind his band showing up in the midst of the - as he affectionately (or perhaps not!) calls the local Apso exhibitors – Lhasa Bitches. Here’s the link to their schedule.
What is the music on this site—I LOVE it!!!!
Oliver Shanti and Friends
You’re not the only one that has asked! The sound byte you hear in the background is from the above album. Legend of a White Stupa is the piece. I love the entire album and have had requests to add more music, longer pieces to the website. To add this particular clip took me several weeks. Doing this might be easier now, but at the time Nate helped me convert the small sound byte into the proper format. The entire piece of music was too big a file. The music isn’t being fed through the blog; the blog is being fed through the FFT website where I’m able to include background music.
I don’t know enough about blog technology…it’s a bit different and certainly more dynamic than traditional websites. It’s possible I’ll be able to do more with the music as I climb my way up the learning curve.
