So, some years back, I had gotten some random invite to perform on what is called BalconyTV,
a web-based video series that shoots live music on, yes, a balcony and, at the time, it was strictly
in Dublin. Because I had spent so much time playing in Dublin after the turn of this century (isn't
that fun to type?) and because I had registered for so many Irish music websites, some people
assumed that I was based over there, so this wasn't the only interesting thing on offer to Irish
players that was extended to me.
Anyway, I was really into it, but schedules and an ocean between eventually kept my performance
on BalconyTV from happening.
Fast forward a few years and you'll see that BalconyTV has branded itself and has now included
five other cities to its roster of performance venues. Dublin, Ireland has been joined by Poznan
in Poland, Auckland in New Zealand, London in the UK, Nashville right here in the States and, of course, Hamburg, Germany, which is the point to this here blog. Since I couldn't get to do
the Dublin Balcony, and since I was headed to Germany with a few days being spent in Hamburg,
well, the rest is history.
Please feel free to check out this video of me playing the newer version of "The Dancer,"
which is slated to be on the next album.
Also, if you have a balcony in some city, somewhere in the world, and would like to host and
film little performances, go right ahead and contact the BalconyTV people, they're real cool.
