I’ve been hopping about Germany for the last week with Jaan Wessman and Schroeder, performing as Mike Keneally and Friends, and having an absolutely fantastic time playing for people. Tonight is the last show of our eight-show run opening for JJ Grey & Mofro (who are a fantastic bunch of guys, band and crew alike) – all the folks who have been helping us out and making this tour happen (particularly George Hofmann and all at Shooter Promotions) are truly a stand-up bunch of righteous geezers. Many, many thanks to all, including those of you have been to the shows, and I can promise there will be more next year.
We’ve got one more Keneally and Friends show after tonight, a headlining gig at Session Music in Walldorf this Monday, June 13. After eight shows of tightly scheduled opening sets, we will certainly be abusing the opportunity to play a much lengthier set, so by all means come see this show if you can! Tickets can be had here.
Then a couple of days of secret recording sessions with my friends Peter Alexius, Marc Mennigmann and Jaan Wessman. What will transpire?
And then it’s on to the next round of Joe Satriani European shows, which will alternate between full Satriani Surfing to Shockwave sets, shorter festival appearances, and G3 nights with Steve Vai and The Aristocrats. Joe has presented some interesting song choices for the jam at the end of the G3 shows – you might be a bit surprised.
But hey, what about pre-order information for Scambot 2, I can hear you say, even while I am located in this very Nurnberg hotel room in which I currently sit?
Stay tuned…stay very, very tuned…
