In this vlog, I made a Cajun Pasta Sauce. I've been playing around with a number of names including DaVo's Jumpin' Spicy Sauce. Nothing really has stuck but here is the recipe:
Effective as of May 1st, I will no longer be a Talent Buyer at Lefty's Live Music. I will continue to work, promote and run all the events I currently have confirmed or a hold date on. However, as of March 24th, 2018, I will not be booking any new shows at Lefty's during the transition from being involved in the daily operations and bookings, to becoming an independent promoter. At this point, I plan on continuing to book and promote some selection show but no longer as an employee of Lefty's Live Music.
A while back I wrote a blog that was 25 commandments that every band should follow. So, I thought it only fair that there should be one that discusses some of the things that venues and promoters should follow. I would be lying if I didn't admit that I have not broken a few of these over the years. However, whenever it was within my control, I did my best to uphold them.

Yesterday, as in December 18th, a fire destroyed the Plaza Lanes Bowling Alley. My piercing studio the Axiom and Skin Kitchen Tattoo were located on the east side of the building. Though the studio was located in an addition that didn't suffer any fire damage, the whole studio suffered from massive water damage. Though there are already plans to re-open in a new location after the first of the year, at this point the future is uncertain.
As a band building a professional relationship with venues, talent buyers, promoters and other bands is extremely important. The reality is that anyone who has been the industry for any period of time knows and comes in contact with a great number of people that will affect your future bookings and career. Now, you might think that burning a venue in some small city will not come back to haunt you but the reality is that often that venue, the promoter or the bands will have a relationship with others in the business in the regional area and in some cases nationwide.

While I was claiming the Have Nots' Artist page on Spotify, I noticed that there was an option to add an artist playlist. So, for this installment of the Playlist blog, I thought it would be interesting to create a playlist of some of the bands and music that influenced the band.
