last week i began the task of booking up a few dates in December for a tour i intend on commencing.  my life is music, my passions however revolve around board sports. i snowboard, i skate and i surf. now i am by no means worth watching at any of thee aforementioned activities, but i do them because i love to, and frankly thats all that matters, right?

i have decided that i would like to connect with the very people i gravate to, and in a selfish sort of way i want to make this musical adventure of mine as much fun as possible at all times. so i am going to be playing some ‘in store shows’ at a few surf and skate shops in the north of ireland. the board shop tour will commence in december so watch this space for details.

one of the surf shops i contacted was the very well known ‘Troggs’ surf shop in Portrush. i have been visiting the store for many years now. a typical visit goes something like this … go in fall in love with everything in there, and walk out with some new wax as once again i have left mine in craigavon!

i called Troggs last week to inquire about a gig. i got speaking to Andy (the owner, and one hell of a lovely man), who went on to offer me the best gig i have ever played! on the phone he listens to me telling him who i am (probably in a manner spoken so fast and with some much enthusiasm its barely understandable) and asks a few questions, the first being “are you any good” to which i reply “you will have to be the judge”!  Andy offered me a chance to play a very exclusive set at the NI screening of a snowboard movie called the Art Of Flight. Now folks… this movie is truly amazing! i know you don’t have to be a snowboarding to appreciate this, even my mum has been telling her friends how good it was.

so in essence (and make a note, this my perfect gig), i got to play my music, at an event ran by a surf company who were showing a snowboard movie that was created by and for my favorite things, in a beautiful theatre in portrush that was packed with passionate people, people like me, who loved the whole experience! I mean i was in HEAVEN.
