The new CD is almost done! Seriously. It has been harder than I thought to self produce. It's probably because I want it to be perfect and keep making one more change. But, it is coming together and will have new originals and some covers that may not be all that familiar to you. I promise, it will be worth the wait. Now, back to work...
I am officially in college. Like everything else in my life, I swim against the current. While many of my friends headed out of town, I'm going to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University - Memphis Campus. My love of aviation and music are both satisfied since I get to keep my gig at BB King's and still pursue flying. And yes, I have about half of my new CD recorded with a goal of having it completely finished this fall. I know it has been a long time coming, and I think it will be worth the wait. I hope everyone had a great summer...and if you haven't checked out my sizzle reel, click the link above and see some of the Beale Street Music Festival performance as well as the except from Music Voyager. Come see us at BB's every Friday and Saturday night...or check us out at the Delta Fair this Saturday night at 6 pm. Thanks for being a faithful fan!
I hope everyone's summer is going great and that you are planning to make a trip to Memphis to see The Will Tucker Band at BB's. We are scheduled every Friday and Saturday through the summer so come down and check us out. If you see me looking a little strange tomorrow night, it's because I had a little accident with my '56 Chevy Bel Air. Let's just say that it's best to open a radiator when the car has totally cooled down. I have a pretty rough looking burn on my face to show what happens when you open the radiator too soon. Fortunately, I only got first and second degree burns and my eyes and hands were spared. I'll heal and I'm just thankful it wasn't worse!
My new CD is coming along. We still have a few more tracks to lay down and then I'll mix and master. I am shooting for it to be done by mid summer. I know I have been promisng this for a while, but I let the restoration of my '56 distract me for a few months. It's done and I'm back at it.
I hope you have a great summer, and I hope you have us on your agenda. I look forward to seeing you at BB's soon!
I know it has been too long since I have written anything, and I'll use the same excuse I've been using at school -- I'm busy. The truth is that at school, I can't wait for it to be over. May 19th and I'll be a grad from high school. People tell me I will miss it, but I don't see how. I just finished producing a CD for my band at school. It will be available soon, and it should be pretty good since I sing and play lead guitar on all the songs but one. Seriously, I'm prouder of having done all of the mixing and mastering. It took hours but I knew what I was looking for. I built my own studio in our house so it was a chance to use it, new sound board and all. Now, I am getting serious about my own record, and I really do plan to get it done soon. I'm also heavy into restoring a '56 Chevy Bel Air, and I've been renting out my flight simulator to a flight instructor who has been training some Vietnamese pilots -- really! They pay to use my 727 sim (see www.727simulator.com) but I have to run the software and be there the entire time. Somewhere in all of that, I'm still at BB's twice a week, go to school, and have a girlfriend. Yeah, she is very understanding.
So, now that I have bored you with all of that, you at least know at little bit more about all that I have going on. I hope the summer will bring some clarity about my career, but at least, I know that I will go to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Memphis Campus this fall.
Coming up: I'll be missing a few dates at BB's in the coming weeks - prom (April 21), my gf's graduation (May 18), and the big one...May 4 because we will be playing at the Beale Street Music Festival! Please put that Friday night on your calendar and plan to see us in the FedEx Blues Tent at 7:45. And finally, check me out with Rodd, my drummer, and his dad, Bobby Blue Bland, on Music Voyager, April 19th at 9 pm on WKNO- Channel 10, here in Memphis. If you live in another city, check with your PBS station for when they are showing Music Voyager - Memphis Mojo. Some people have written that they have already seen in their city.
Okay, that was too much, so I should wlrite more often and keep it shorter. Thanks for being a fan, and I hope you check us out at BB's and the Beale Street Music Festival during April and May. Keep playing the blues, Will
The show tomorrow night will be amazing. Too bad, Jimi Jamison had to cancel. But The Will Tucker Band is still on (about 7:30) and there are some '80's greats that are going to rock the house. Check out Minglewood's website to read all about them...JOE LYNN TURNER - Deep Purple and Rainbow (Smoke On The Water, Street of Dreams, Hush), DEREK ST. HOLMES - Ted Nugent Band (Stranglehold, Hey Baby, Cat Scratch Fever), BOBBY KIMBALL - TOTO (Rosanna, Hold the Line, Africa), and JEFF ADAMS - Special Guest from Starship with Mickey Thomas.
