American Music Abroad Tour- What this work means.

April 2, 2013

The four weeks we spent in The Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador were the greatest musical times of my life. These band mates who I've known and shared stages with for so long transformed into an unshakable family of souls all forever touched by the beautiful folks we met every day and the lessons we learned.

Honduras Pics- Some of our favorites!

February 19, 2013

There is a lot of beauty here! Honduras has been the most...colorful...spot yet. We've all been rolling with many punches- silly amplifiers (mine is 6 inches in diameter and justins requires that you punch it every five minutes), Drew's crash cymbal is literally a finger cymbal... questionable lettuce, somewhat ambiguous meat...you know, tour stuff.

Welcome To Honduras! Video: "Aurora" with Saxs De Honduras

February 19, 2013

Sad to leave Nica- but there's no looking back on this tour. We're in Honduras- Nicaragua's neighbor to the North. Much has been made of the instability and crime in the metropolitan areas here and it is a sad reality that the drug trade and gangs have reeked havok throughout this nation and the region. However, we've been hanging out with musicians and artists, who have better things to do than think about violence, let alone engage in it. Read More

Adios Nica- Our favorite photos

February 13, 2013

I was truly devastated to leave Nicaragua- it is a place that has burrowed itself deep into my heart. Justin, I know was sad to leave because he became so enamored of the local rice and beans dish - Gallo Pinto. For me, the Jamaican version "Rice and Peas" made with coconut milk and not fried will always be the superior dish. It's not the food I'll miss- it's the folks. Read More

Amazing Grace / Nicaragua, Nicaraguita LIVE in Leon, Nicaragua

February 11, 2013

We had a beautiful concert in the colonial city of Leon, Nicaragua. The crowds here in Nica have been so beautiful- and during this concert we put together this medly of the traditional American spiritual "Amazing Grace" (played with stunning beauty by the great Ezra Brown on Sax) and the Nicaraguan national post-revolution anthem "Nicaragua, Nicaraguita." We were moved to tears by the response from the crowd- it is amazing how quickly they spot the melody from Gray's Accordion (despite his beautiful reharmonizations). Read More
