Day two on the road with Paul Cargnello. I’ll be posting some short “blogs” on how things are going. Last night we played a great show in one of the best record shops I’ve been in for awhile called Le Knockout and they sure did treat us well. I got some great 45’s as well as a limited edition blue vinyl Paul Collins record called The King Of Power Pop.
Today we head out to Chicoutimi to play Le Sous Bois. More to come from the tour as we travel about in our 2 man sonic army!!!!
On a side note: Paul has now started referring to me as “Lucky” Lewis Handford. The polls are noe open to see who’s into it.
Big announcement part 2!!
Rufus And Martha Wainwright’s Noël Nights.
“Rufus and Martha Wainwright convene the crème de la crème of the music scene in this benefit concert celebrating Christmas. They’ll be joined by Louis-Jean Cormier, Ariane Moffatt and Amy Millan, to name but a few, taking the stage with the brother-sister duo to light up the evening, all proceeds of which will go to the Kate McGarrigle Fund, which supports cancer care and research at the McGill University Cancer Centre and the McGill University Health Centre Foundation. A good cause has seldom been such joyous fun!”
I am now the newest addition to the MCD Percussion artists roster, and their very first Canadian endorser!!
I am extremely pleased to finally be able to announce my endorsement deal with MCD Percussion, an absolutely amazing custom drum company from Philadelphia PA. After months of design, planning, and excellent service, I received my brand new kit this week and it is amazing!! These drums are awesome!!! I can’t wait to start gigging with it and to spread the word about MCD drums.
Here are the specs of my new kit:
Canadian maple ply in custom black/cherry burst
Chrome single-sided beavertail lugs

A huge thank-you to Mike Mastropietro, Nick Costa, and the whole MCD family. Thank-you so much for creating an absolutely beautifully flawless drum-set.
