Mike types to you from the KBL tour van…

Keneally-Bendian-Lunn rip into “Skies of LA” at Orion Sound Studios in Baltimore MD on May 22, 2014. Video by Guest Host J.D. Mack, audio by Mike Potter– thanks, you guys!

Hi, it’s Mike – having a great time with Keneally-Bendian-Lunn on the road, a rocking little trio if I do say so myself. We had a real blast last night playing the NJ Proghouse in Dunellen, NJ, maybe our best playing of the tour so far. So we are feeling good and warmed up for the last four shows of the tour.

Tonight is The Middle East in Cambridge, MA, with School For Robots and Bent Knee opening. Tomorrow night is the Bearsville Theatre in Woodstock, NY, with our good friend Jesse Gress sitting in with us for a few classic tunes by Mahavishnu, Jeff Beck and Todd Rundgren, and Paul Green’s Rock Academy kids opening. (Part of our Bearsville soundcheck will be broadcast live on WDST-FM starting around 5pm EST.) We’re winding up with gigs in Charleston, WV and Scottsville, KY (this one’s free!). A whirlwind of shows in two weeks, it’s going by like a flash but I’m having a tremendous amount of fun and the audiences have been really into it. I hope to see a bunch of you at the final four shows.

Mike Keneally’s Road Report!

Keneally Bendian Lunn

Yo!

We’ve done five shows on the Keneally-Bendian-Lunn tour so far and things are developing musically in a fascinating way every night. The setlist is being honed and altered each night and it’s a challenging, fun ride for us and for the audience. Touching on so many different styles and dynamics, we’ve put together a song order that has a really satisfying flow. Response has been absolutely fantastic – thank you to all who’ve been a part of the shows, so far, from the superbly generous and helpful Guest Hosts and Associate GHs, to the venue owners and staff, and of course the audience. This is turning out to be a really enjoyable tour!

Check out the info below for the remaining gigs, and if you’re planning to go to any, please consider buying your tickets in advance online (we’re hitting up some new venues on this run and it’s nice for them to see some decent sales in advance of the show, and helps us in the long run in terms of future touring).
