Sorry you haven't heard from me for such a long time! I know some of you count on my posts to bring a little light into your dreary lives. It was just that putting together the Neon News was getting to be a 12 hour marathon each month! I'm going to try something a little different.
You can now find your Neon News in blog format at this address: http://wayneon.blogspot.com/
This should make it easy for me to just throw interesting stuff up there from time to time.
I will continue to send you an email notice when I post something important. You might also want to click on the button that says "Follow Blog". Not sure what that does, but it's probably very clever.
So, what you need to now right now is that I will be performing on Thursday, April 30, 2009 at 9 pm with Chris Watson and the Big Trouble Band at Mitzi's Sister, a great restaurant and music spot at 1554 Queen Street West, not too far west of Lansdowne. This gig will feature the Big Trouble Horns, trumpet, trombone, tenor and baritone sax! So I am crazy busy writing horn charts.
I am making lots of other music, so stay tuned.
Gordon's Acoustic Living Room is well into our sixth year of monthly gigs at the Free Times Café, 320 College Street, west of Spadina.
You can catch them this weekend, Sunday, April 19, 8-11 pm, but I won't be there.
I'm off to British Columbia to promote electoral reform. BC citizens will be voting in a referendum on a new, proportional voting system on May 12. Check it out here: www.stv.ca
P.S. Did I mention I'm looking for a job? Resume here: http://www.wayneon.ca/links/WayneSmithCV.doc Pass it on!
