- December Notes
- Well a very Merry Chrimble and Happy New Year from the west coast of the USA! The Sorentinos are down to their last gig of 2016, and we are gonna have a really good time trying to cover as much ground as we can in two sets. We will of course be playing our original Christmas tunes along with some old chestnuts and some deep catalog songs from our 22 albums of rock, blues, country, pop, jazz and folk. I am trying to sort through all the songs now for a lyric book that I may do with my buddy Joe Groma, who has been after me to do one for the past few years now and I have to say it is a daunting task! I forgot how many songs I have that we haven't played live in a long, long time, so I have to get to work this week!
- We all want to say thanks to each and everyone of you for being with us on our musical quest for the last 30 years. You are the reason we have kept on keeping on. The Sorentinos will be taking a little break from live gigs at the beginning of the year and then we will see what happens. I do know that I will continue to write songs as long as I think I have something to say, and then put them down on tape if I have the energy and will to get them out there. I also want to do some writing that's not songwriting. I have been working on The Starving Artist Cookbook with my lovely wife for the past few years. I would like to finish that next year if time permits and maybe the Sorentinos lyric book as well. I would also like to see if I can find time to get my guitar playing to a different place from where it is now, maybe study a bit and get a little closer to where I want to be as a guitar player. I have spent so many hours writing songs I think my musical language needs to be updated and then I might be able to come up with something new song wise as well. I gots to keep moving on….
- So anyway, come on out to The Twins Oaks on Saturday the 17th and check out this great band! Steve, Rory and Rob will have their jingle bells out, and will be ready to sleigh you!
