It is my utmost pleasure to introduce to you, the most beautiful trombonist/bar owner in Wilmington, North Carolina, Maaike! I’m sure we’ll be sharing the stage with her and her band , The Phantom Playboys, when we return to Wilmington.
During Blissfest I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Baskery, a ridiculously badass trio of sisters from Stockholm, Sweden. Consisting of Sunniva on guitar, Stella on upright bass, and Greta on banjo and snare and bass drum played with her feet. These sisters rock out hard and sing glorious three part harmony throughout. I was lucky enough to hang out with them for a little bit and I got Stella and Sunniva to play Suzy. It was a great day. And now without further ado, the most beautiful bassist and guitarist from Stockholm, Stella and Sunniva!
We had a day off after playing Blissfest so we ended up chilling at a Polish camp. Excellent people. We shared some music and they shared a lot of vodka. Good times all around. Now without further ado, the most beautiful Polish waitresses, hostess, and cooks in Harbor Springs, Michigan, Asia, Vela, Malwina, Daniella, and Ada!
P.S. Gig tonight at Barley’s Taphouse and Pizzeria in Knoxville, Tennessee. Show starts at 10.
Carol Jantsch: Supreme Tuba Goddess of the Philadelphia Orchestra
Not only is Carol Jantsch the first woman to win a principal tuba position in a major American Symphony, she is such a badass she did this before she could legally have a drink. Jantsch won the principal tuba position before she even finished her senior year at the University of Michigan. A true musical genius and an unbelievably hard worker, Carol Jantsch is a total badass.
P.S. Gig tonight at Tony’s Studio B in Lakeland, Florida. Show starts at 8.
