Getting the Band Back Together… Part 2

Hi guys. So sorry, but I guess I spoke a little too soon about getting the band back together. The Bowie part of Millar-Bowie has decided to opt out of our date on Saturday at the Gibsons Public Market. Paula has a sore throat, and they have decided to avoid public events for the next while because of the coronavirus. I totally understand and respect their decision.

Jim's EyesI’m going ahead with the event and will be performing two 45-minute sets as a solo performer as I’ve done in my last two appearances there.

I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but just as a reminder…

  • avoid public events if you’re not feeling well
  • maintain a distance of two arm’s lengths from others, especially if they are sneezing or coughing
  • wash your hands frequently and keep scrubbing for 10 seconds, which is about the time it takes to sing happy birthday. I like to insert the word “corona” for the name while I’m scrubbing, although for the virus, it’s the opposite of a birthday.

Stay well everybody, much love…

Glenn.

Getting the Band Back Together

I’m really looking forward to getting the Millar-Bowie Band back together this weekend. We’ll be playing a 45-minute set in the atrium at the Gibsons Public Market on Saturday, March 14th. The show starts at 2:30 p.m. with a solo set by yours truly, and then Jim and Paula Bowie will join in for a second set at about 3:45 p.m. We’ll also have Jack Polesser with us on drums.

Jim's EyesI’ve been playing as a solo performer quite a bit the last little while. It certainly has some advantages: You get to win all the arguments, and you don’t have to share any of the money. But there’s nothing quite as satisfying as joining with other musicians to weave a nice, tight tapestry of sound that connects with an audience. Hopefully, that’s what we’ll be doing on Saturday. Please drop by if you’re in the neighbourhood.

Dropped the album last Friday, dude.

So, I dropped the album last friday. My buddy Jim, who I consider the ultimate authority on all things musical, says the proper parlance for real musicians these days is to say you “dropped” an album. So, last week when I said I released my album… well, I guess misspoke.

Donald GlennReal musicians don’t say “released” anymore, Jim says. They also don’t say “launched” or “put out” or “delivered” or any of those things. They say “dropped” and if you can add the word “man” or “dude” to the end of the sentence, well that just makes it even better.

So I dropped my album last Friday… dude.

You can pick it up or stream it anywhere, but here’s some of my favourite spots…

Hi there. I’ve been getting lots of new views on my YouTube channel lately, mostly because of my song/video Lullaby for Livia, which I wrote for my granddaughter. The song is about the sorry state of the world that her generation will inherit, and my personal pledge to do the best I can for it before I leave. There’s only two song/videos on the channel right now, but I’m planning to add more soon. I’ve been working on a collection of songs for an album called Mystical Journeys, and I’ll be featuring selections from the album on the channel. You can check it out at the link below, and If you like what you hear, please consider subscribing. Ciao for now…
