The Provincial Band and I will be in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland for the last leg of our tour for Provincial. We start Tuesday at the Wiesbaden Schlacthof, one of the first venues I played in Europe in 1992.
We are all especially excited about Zurich, where it has been agreed that all us ex-smokers will partake in one Parisienne Jaune cigarette each.
Our bass player Professor Doug Friesen has asked us each to learn a Shakespearian soliloquy to recite during autobahn traffic jams. I’m going with All I Need, from The Jerk, by modern master Steve Martin.
In very important news for Winnipeggers, I have a stickybun in the heated Jonnies Stickybun competition next week. Mine is called “The Lefty,” and is a vegan lavender/poppyseed creation. Winnipeggers, please help The Lefty win by purchasing as many as you can at Jonnies or Parlour Coffee.
If you haven’t yet, please sign the song/petition to get the great Reggie Leach into the Hockey Hall of Fame. This week is the 36th anniversary of his incredible Conn Smythe Trophy winning Stanley Cup series.
