Bennie and the Jets



I rarely post anything on the blog anymore since Facebook is around, but Facebook posts get lost after a while, so I figured this event was blog worthy. Last October, Dave Graham came trick or treating with his sons, Robert and Alex, and when he saw our piano, he busted out with one of my all time favorite songs, Bennie and the Jets. I made the deal with him then and there to sing it for the talent show. I knew we needed outfits that would be worthy of Elton, so I bought a couple of pairs of rhinestone encrusted glasses, a couple of cans of silver spray paint, and got busy. Here is the result. Check it out.

Oregon 2011

We spent twenty-five days camping this summer, mostly up in Oregon. The boys and I skated at about a dozen or more parks, and I am compiling videos. Here is one that I put some music to. The song is called Go Skate! and I wrote it for the Bad Goods. I play all the instruments on it except the piano and the congas, which Dave Qualls played. Dave also engineered the recording in his awesome garage/studio.
