I can't say enough about the staff
at the White Elephant. Brad and Jeremy are fantastic and gracious
hosts for the showcase. I really wouldn't have gotten back into
performing as much if not for their encouragement.
And Amanda is the best! She always
takes care of our posse to make sure we're having a great time.
The camaraderie among the musicians
is awesome. I really value their friendship and the encouragement.
And special thanks to Tim Blazer for encouraging me to write my
Speaking of writing, the "White
Elephant Saloon" song never would have seen the light of day
without James Smith. I struggled with it for months and after one
night working on it with James, we had a finished, polished song.
And for those who like to sing along,
here's the chorus:
up the sidewalk, and walk right through that door.
Two-step all the way across
the sawdust on the floor.
Or sit there at the bar
and drink your troubles down.
Welcome to the old west,
here in Cowtown."
