4-11-13 Made It Through Another One
Thursday, April 11, 2013
It really does help make the winter fly by to have some kind of outdoor sport... like snow removal... wood pile maintenance... and skiing! I won't rub it in too much, but living in the middle of nowhere can have its benefits. Here in Taos we have one of the finest ski areas in the country. It's famous for its steep slopes and rugged terrain. But the season is over and the spring winds have started to blow. Time to get busy again with booking and promoting spring and summer performances and studio projects. The learning curve in the home project studio continues to be as steep as many of the ski runs at the Taos Ski Valley, but the work has been flowing through and some good music and audio editing has gotten done and new local and long distance work continues to come in.
My 2013 calendar is filling up with truly diverse live projects that I'm playing and singing in. The funky dance vibe of 'Station A' is a regular presence now on the Taos Music Scene. The picture below, shot by Jim Cox, was taken at a recent Station A show in Taos and includes renowned Taos Pueblo resident Robert Mirabal and renowned writer/poet/activist/friend Dora McQuaid posing with the band members and friends
The Don Conoscenti Band is bringing in producer/studio wiz/bassist extraordinaire Glenn Harvitz for the summer season. The Alana Grier Band with it's smoldering jazz-reggae-blues vibe is back in action. Should be a fun summer/fall working with all these great folks. I've updated my calendar in the Shows section with everything I have currently booked this year. The Stadler and DonCon Show continues to air the second Sunday of each month on KTAOS 101.9 FM from 5pm till 7pm Mountain Time here in the US. Jimmy and me do our best to overcome the technical difficulties and provide recorded tracks and live musical performances including special guests each month. The show streams live anywhere in the universe over the internet.
Wishing everyone the very best and once again want to say how grateful I am for all the love and support you've given. Peace on you all. DonCon
