Welcome to November! Another busy month ahead. **New CD Progress.** Just before going away (more on that in a minute) I had a very constructive studio recording session, getting down three good tracks and another 3 rehearsal recordings, singing at volumes that would cause my neighbours to add percussion on the walls and ceilings! This weekend I mixed the good takes out and so have 4 tracks towards the new CD. The name the slide guitar instrumental completion is still running, thanks for the entries so far, Dan Ogus featured the track on his Scattering the Roots program and you can hear the track on Dan Ogus' listen again facility at http://www.mixcloud.com/DanOgus1/scattering-the-roots-28-09-14/ The tune is featured about 16 minutes before the end of the show. Do email me you suggested title to get a free copy of the CD and a mention on the cover. **AmiWest Sacramento, California** At the end of last month I had the great pleasure to be invited out to perform at the Banquet of the AmiWest computer convention in Sacramento, California. I was to talk about my usage of the Amiga computing platform throughout my music career and play some of my music (live of course) as well as demonstrate the art package that I work on as a hobby. A very unusual way to do a gig but it worked out quite well, I sold all the CDs I took with me and received a couple of online orders too! Read more about it on my blog http://webplus.broad.ology.org.uk/blog.php?blogid=560 There is a video of the Banquet performance there too, music starts around 15 minutes in. **Gigs** Friday 7th November The Bee Hive, Swindon The Walker Broad Band We had a fantastic gig here last time, a great audience.
