This has been quite a day. It started at 4am today, waking up bleary-eyed at my girlfriend Jamia’s apartment in Union
Square to be at NBC Studios by 5AM for a 5:45 soundcheck. It’s really interesting to see what’s going on in Manhattan at around 4:30am – it’s such a transitional time – people are either going home after a long night, or getting ready for a long day! I was one of the latter in this case. I got to the studio on time and from there it was all about hanging with the band, going where we were supposed to go, and playing when we were supposed to play. Everyone did such an amazing job, and Gemma was awesome! I was also particularly psyched that Nate Smith was on drums. He has an amazing pocket and really laid down a great groove. A true pleasure to play with such a slick, professional group!
Now I’m back at ye olde day job, and I’m completely out of it I’m so tired (but not too tired to get my blogging in, such dedication!). I took some great pics from the performance and I’m going to post them on Monday. In the meantime, enjoy the video!!!
I’m so proud of you. I was so excited to see you on The Today Show. I received a few calls from MD and SC about you. You’re a star! xo
