We had a great time last night in Cleveland, where we played with a host of School of Rock staff bands. Students of the teachers on stage were in the audience and were invited up to play with all of the bands, including us! The kids were amazing, and wicked talented. It was like they had been playing with us since the beginning.
After the show, we began the long haul out to Brooklyn. We drove about three hours, into Pennsylvania, and shacked up in a Super 8. I fell asleep right away, while the rest of the dudes had some Miller High Lifes. After about 4 hours of sleep, I was the first awake, and got to take a well needed shower. After the dudes used the waffle maker in the hotel to make some breakfast, we hit the road again, right on time at 9:30AM. There was no sign of any good coffee joints along the highway, so we made our first unfortunate trip to McDonald’s… It happens.
We are now about 30 minutes outside of NYC, coming in from I-80 through Newark. It has been 10 years since I’ve been to NYC, and Dave has never been, so after the show (which is a mid day show, hence our urgent drive), we plan to head to the city to hit some tourist sites. See ya on the flipside!
