The Jason Evans Band hopped on the livestream circuit with a tight performance on Saturday. The show was broadcast live to Facebook from Whiskey Jax at Jacksonville Beach (Florida). Fans tuned in, and for a donation, you could hear a favorite. The production was very slick, with an emcee and the feel of a public education fundraiser. I personally loved it.

Rebecca Day is interviewing bands and musicians who will perform at Jax Country Fest scheduled for September 11-12, 2020 at Jacksonville Beach. Rebecca and The Crazy Daysies are performing at this, and she agreed to do the interviews to help get the word out about some of the indie bands who work and play here in Florida. The festival will also feature Nashville musicians.

I noticed something in the interview that definitely hit home with me. Continue reading “Hat tip: Dixie Highway musician mom meets challenges with finesse”

Every so often I do an update here about what the girls and their fellow musicians are up to. It looks like 2019 will be another busy year, but we’re hoping for a little more space in between gigs than we had in 2018. Rebecca learned that four gigs in the span of a week makes for one tired musician.

If you work as a musician, you know how it is. You’ll have gigs on the book for a certain week, and a too-great-to-decline offer comes up. So you put it on the calendar. That happened quite a few times in 2018.

There’s also the busy work of running a small business. Rebecca does a good job and I help as I can, but the paperwork alone can be tedious. Music looks glamorous from the outside, but when you’re on the inside of it and doing it fulltime, it takes a lot of energy.

Last year there were lots of personal events going on, and that made scheduling tricky. There’s good news and bad news on that front.  Continue reading “What’s up in 2019 for the Crazy Daysies?”

Daysies’ livestream featured new songs, cancer fundraiser, and film producer

The Crazy Daysies had Friday night off, and ended up doing music anyway. It’d been awhile since they had time to do a livestream, so we invited some friends and family over and ended up having a ball. We heard a couple new covers and the original they’ll soon release. We also had some special guests.  Continue reading “Daysies’ livestream featured new songs, cancer fundraiser, and film producer”

What does a band do when there’s a rare Friday night off? Find a way to make music, of course. This Friday, August 17, at 7:30 PM, the Crazy Daysies will go live on Facebook to help raise money  for the American Cancer Society. David Thompson, husband of Jennifer, is heading up the fundraiser for his firm. David is an associate at Coker Law. This event on Facebook may yield some surprises.
