Happy New Year to everyone and all the very best for 2010! As you know by now Black Is Black and Best Of My Love are available right now on iTunes and we are very excited about the having this new material for you. This year promises to be a busy one for us if the first week of the year is any indication of things to come. Looking forward to a couple of shows in the Vancouver area during the Olympics although living here, the Olympics will be a bit of a hassle in regards to trying to get anywhere near the downtown core. They will essentially be shutting down the city centre during the Olympics and limit the access of the normal traffic flow. I am glad I don't have to commute... Anyways, a little chaotic but an interesting time to be in Vancouver nonetheless. Celebrated Christmas with my girlfriend last week since I was on the road during the Christmas holidays. As you know, we played a couple of shows as part of the World Junior Championships in Saskatoon and Regina. It was great doing those shows and as always, we were well taken care of by the organizers and support staff. Thanks to everyone for your help. Then we played Winnipeg NYE at the McPhillips Street Casino and I probably had as much fun as I have had on a New Years for a long time. The band was really tight after doing those shows in Saskatchewan just a few days earlier. NYE shows can get a bit weird sometimes but we had big fun and the crowd was terrific as it always is in Winnipeg of course. So with the strains of U2's New Years Day rolling around in my head I arrive home late Jan 01 via Air Canada (thanks for not losing my stuff at least), literally hit the ground running and have not stopped since that time. Speaking of running, I am on my way out the door to get new flooring for my recording studio so I won't ramble on too much more. I just wanted to say Happy New Year to you all and as always, we are looking forward to a great 2010 (yikes!!!!!! really?) for Kenny and Streetheart and we hope you will be a big part of that with us. Oh yeah, get started on your taxes kids. April is coming. Yeah... I'm The Taxmaaaaaan.
Rock on... J.
