February 2021 music w/ John Baboian
Hi friends, hope you are all doing well. I know that I missed sending something out in January. There were no gigs to list, and I got a bit lazy about posting any videos during the month.
But, I’m baaaaaaack.
How ‘bout them Patriots!!………oops, I mean how ‘bout them Buc’s!!! Brady gets Superbowl #7, and Gronk gets #4. That should stick a fork in anyone who doesn’t think that TB12 is the G.O.A.T., at least at quarterback.
Celtics and Bruins are playing their limited pandemic schedule, and seem to be doing okay.
The Red Sox spring training is just around the corner, so that means that some better weather should be here fairly soon.
Enjoying the snow? Last week, Belmont was on the good side of the rain/snow line. We got about 4 inches of heavy slushy snow, but I read that just a few miles west of us, they got 18”…Yikes!
This month’s video: Last week, I got to record an interview video with the chairs and administrators of the Berklee guitar dept., called “Coffee Talk”. Now, I’m not a coffee drinker, but I’m a tea drinker, so it became “Coffee/Tea Talk”. The interview lasts for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, so there’s a lot of info there. A lot of it was guitar and music related talk, but some of it was about my career as a player and educator, and I get to tell some fun stories about the past 40+ years. I think it is something that you might enjoy, and is worth a listen. Certainly for musicians and music students
The link is below. Let me know if you were able to open it and any thoughts.
Please stay safe, keep masked and social distanced, and let’s hope we’re out of this pandemic relatively soon.
Thanks, Johnny B!!!!!
