I had the pleasure of playing my song “Headin’ South” at the Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor on “A Prairie Home Companion.” The fabulous Shoe Band backed me superbly. The special addition of Steve Strand and Kenni Holmen (Prince’s horn section) made this a truly extraordinary event. I have never experienced a band like this before. I’ve been in some amazing bands. It was the plushest and most luxurious musical ride I have ever been on. Combine this with a sold out crowd of nearly 4000 in a highly energized setting. This is something that cannot be duplicated in a studio. Its a once in a lifetime deal. Moreover the expertise of the recording staff got every detail and lost none of the energy. I invite you to ride shotgun with me….its a smoooooooth ride.
