Yes I’m Changing

February 5, 2017

I’ve decided to add lite weight training to my routine, to go along with my daily 5km runs, so I set up my weight bench in the spare bedroom upstairs.


Good Enough LIVE Karaoke played at Doogie’s in Guelph on Friday night, and to a sold out crowd at Junction City Music Hall on Saturday night which was our 12th show of 2017!


Next Friday we’re up at Heartwood Concert Hall in Owen Sound for the 3rd time, and playing a private party at a curling club in Sarnia on Saturday Feb 11th.


It feels like playing 3 or 4 hours a night (2 or 3x a week) ain’t no thang anymore. + “What song are we playing next?” OR “Hmm, that’s not on our song-list is it? You guys heard it before? Whatever, let’s wing it” It’s what we do. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Now if I can just add 2 or 3 hours/day of practicing and reviewing songs on keys and guitar then we’ll really be in business.

New Rose

February 1, 2017

I’m back from Las Vegas! I lost $200 or $300 (who’s counting) playing blackjack this year which totally sucked, but what can you do? Stop playing blackjack? Here’s a picture Nobu took of me bug-eyed and shitfaced after 4 tiki drinks at Frankie’s. Getting some sun for a few days did me some good.


Tonight we’re launching Good Enough PUNK Karaoke at the Baby G. It’ll happen the first Wednesday of every month. I’ve got a total of 9 shows currently scheduled for this month (including shows in Guelph, Owen Sound and Sarnia), but the song-list for tonight is totally separate from our regular Good Enough LIVE Karaoke repertoire. Our working definition of “punk” for the night has as much to do with the era it was made as it does with how it sounds. It’s my personal definition, I’ve got my reasons, and nobody else has to agree with me. We’ve tried to stick between 1969 to 1985…because that’s what we’re doing. Here’s the song-list:
