Waking up around noon.


Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, Flax Seed, and Almond Milk. English Breakfast Tea.


Thomas, Anna, Megan, and I load up the trucks at Music Makers and transport all the gear and equipment to Smartmouth Pilot House for the big Modern Day Warrior gig tonight.


Setting up the stage area by the garage door. It takes some time to get all the cables wired around in between amps and tweak all the settings.


Enjoying a pizza from their new in-house pizza oven.


All the kids are excited and ready to perform. I had the kid band that’s been practicing all summer open up for MDW – they killed it bigtime – lots of original tunes.



Then, Modern Day Warrior captures the hearts and ears of the crowd – it’s absolutely packed in here. They do all their hits along with a few new tricks up their sleeves like this Stranger Things theme song introducing Separate Ways.


Afterwards, everyone chips in to gather all the cables and load up the trucks.


I have a long talk with Anna afterwards about her journey in joining this band and how much the group is growing and tightening up.


Back home finally ready to gather my breath. Eating some Black Beans, Quinoa, Kale, and Eggs. Watching Lord of the Rings.
