Tomorrow

Isnt it funny how tomorrow is always here quicker than you realise it... I remember when I was at school, there was a show called beyond 2000 on tv and it was all about what would life be like in the future... I was like..."Ill be 26 in the year 2000" SO old... well tomorrow is here today and we leave for the USA today... a trip we've prayed about, thought about and dreamed about for the best part of 5 years... Now its here, and pretty soon it'll be over... Just really makes you realise that you must live like tomorrow may never come, because one day you'll wake up and tomorrw is here. I am so pumped. This trip is going to be so rocking. I am really fortunate that a good mate of mine is going to be on the plane with me, so if and when Kiah (my daughter) gets too full on I'll be all like... "go on baby, go play with uncle Paul and let mummy and daddy have a sleep..." What are mates for???

6 Days to go

Its official... we go to th USA in 6 days. Totally stoked! We start in New York, then head to Virginia where we will play some shows, then we head to Austin Texas before hitting California for the best part of a month of gigs. We then finish up in Nashville for a few days of GMA before heading home and then straight back to Hong Kong for a week. It is going to be fantastic! Cant wait to bust the didge out and take some Koori culture to America. I am going to miss home but its only for 2 months, and I'll be back in sunny Melbourne again for 7 whole weeks. Looking at the net, I am just amazed at how big everything seems in America. Don't think Ill be able to really get it till I see it. Been practicing my stage banter though...."Crikey our CD is good" "Thats not a cd, this is a cd" "Isn't this cd a beauty..." Anyway, if you're a praying person, please pray for us as we head on this trip!

Long Time Between Drinks

I know its been a while since my last entry. I guess i need to try to get to this more. Its less than 3 3 weeks until we leave for the USA and all of us are very excited. Still praying that some more gigs confirm, but its going to be great. We start by landing in NY and then rent a car to drive to Virginia. We are playing there over the weekend of the 6th of March, and then we fly to LA where modt of our gigs are. I can't decide what I'm more excited about... seeing a new place and people and taking our music and message to them, or getting to meet mickey mouse... yes we are going to do Disney Land! Giddy Up! We are rehearsing 3 hours a day at the moment though and I can honestly say we're sounding as good as we've ever sounded as a trio. Still praying for a few more gigs so we can fly Lyndon over and have a socking 4 piece happening, but we'll see what happens. I will be posting more from now on.
