"Been a year since we went away....guess that guitar player sho could play...."
Holy crap what the hell happened? 2020 is gone and things are still weird. COVID right? So very much more than that.
This past year has taken a toll or twenty on everyone hasn't it? So many people gone, so much time lost, so many venues and studios done as well. Its hard to put anything into perspective which is odd in itself. All of my music projects shut down in May of 2020 and we are very weary of going back out. Indoor shows are a no go for the near future for certain.
Life is put on hold.
Nov 2020. Vaccines and following strict pod protection protocol we think about music. I meet a new musician, drummer Don Stahl, and along with Chris Briggs my bass player for over 30 years, and Ray Wiggs my keyboard player for the past decade begin to just record some fun stuff at my studio. Don, who is a native of Fairbury Illinois, has been gone for several years or so playing professionally everywhere he has lived. He and his lovely wife Dawn moved back to Central Illinois and through a chance encounter Don and I met and talked music.
Have no grand scheme here or any idea how much time we have together but we're going to make some noise and have some fun on the way regardless. No one knows for sure however there is a plan...
"Marc Boon and the Day Drinkers" (working title) Make Music Normal Fest September 12th 2021 ! Connie Link Amphitheater. More information coming.
Some very talented and special guitar playing friends are stopping to lend a hand to the project and maybe a few other surprises. More to come.
