The drummer; he inspired me to play like no one else I have ever met.

- Chet Baker, Jr. (December 23, 1929 – May 13, 1988 was an American jazz trumpeter, flugelhornist and vocalist.

It's almost time for Whisky Row to get the party started....

What a great setting, there's nothing better than outdoor concerts....This should be a lotta fun! The guys are takin care of the sound check, makin' sure everything goes off without a hitch...Then it's time to grab something cold to drink, and enjoy the scenery until the they go on.....What a life..... ( I love being married to a musician )

It was an early morning, after not much sleep last night, so it's nice to be able to relax, listen to some, "Y'ALLTERNATIVE" country music (when you hear their songs you'll know why they're callin' it that), and enjoy the warm sunshine...

Life is crazy busy these days, Ced's got a few irons in the fire, so to speak, so any opportunity to "work" and get back to nature at the same time is a plus in our book....

Now, I don't wanna say too much right now, but there are some exciting possibilities on the horizon for Cedric. So be sure and stick around - that way you'll be among the first to know what's happening....

Ced's an amzing drummer! He has this natural, God-given, talent/ability to pick up those sticks and make magic - well -It's absolutely crazy, the way that he plays....speed, control, creativity - BAM! Right in your face, It doesn't matter what 'type' of music it is - I've watched/listened to him play it all, from rock, to country, to blues, to 'latin-hip-hop-reggae' - he makes it look so easy...effortless. He's very 'fluid' when he plays, and I love that. He just has this 'feel' for the music....He isn't just someone who PLAYS the drums - he IS a drummer...if that makes sense....lots of people can play the drums, but when you come across a musician like Ced, well, it's not something HE DOES, it's WHO HE IS....and I think that type of passion, that goes all the way to the depths of his very soul, can't help but manifest itself when he gets behind the kit. ...

Ced's a pretty modest guy, he doesn't spend a lot of time droppin' names, and talkin' about everywhere he's played...he's a true professional, in every sense of the word. He's an asset to any band he plays with. Not only does he have the talent, but he works his butt off, and gives 200% ALWAYS, doin' his part to make the band look great, and ensuring that the fans never go home disappointed.

NOW LET ME ASK YOU THIS - what more could anyone ask for...

Okay, that'll do it for today....or at least for now....Ced's got another gig tonight, so who knows, i might be back....

Don't forget -check out Ced's new 'fan page' on fb...gonna do my best to get the pics/videos posted everywhere ASAP ....
