1. TRAVEL CAJONS RETURN. Thanks to enthusiastic response, I ran out of travel cajons at the end of my June New York tour. Between rehearsing for High Holy Days and preparing for recording the album, I haven't paid much attention to anything beyond making music. But today I'm starting on a fresh batch of travel cajons, which I will bring with me to the URJ Biennial in December. If you're going to Biennial and want a cajon, put in your order early and pick it up in Chicago to save on postage.
2. Other percussions! I've expanded my offerings with various shakers, mostly from things I've taught about in my Junk-To-Funk workshops.
Starting with this cool shaker, I'll be expanding my offerings a little bit. I hope to bring a few of these to Biennial as well. (Video will be shared later on Facebook.) I will also be offering my Junkyard Sistrum on a limited basis (ONLY at live shows).
3. Stickers! Based on requests, I'm going to run one more round of stickers to bring to live shows. If you buy something else you'll get a sticker for free. If not, they'll be a buck each. They'll look great on your briefcase, or more ideally, the top tube of your bicycle.
I do not plan on making up t-shirts, patches or anything else. I'm staying with what I know, and more importantly, with what I can do from as many repurposed materials as possible. I hope you'll understand and appreciate my choices and the reasons for them. I'm super-excited about what's coming up, next week and in the next couple of months. Thanks for coming along on the ride!
