Tony Soul Project News DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW EDITION

 
TSP only had one show last weekend, that being a 9:00 affair at BRODIE’S SEAPORT in Salem, conveniently booked in the teeth of a nasty weather front. You see we were in a cold front blowing in from up here on our map and you can see the warm air system blowing in here from Texas,loaded with moisture. Well, these two systems will collide directly over the SoulMobile on route 128 in Wilmington, on his way to the gig  Well, we all made it with our tales of hairy travel. We played to an attentive crowd. They were very appreciative of the music as we were of them for battling the elements to come out and see us on such a stormy night. Something always happens when we go to Salem. The witches put a spell on me!! My car too!!

THIS WEEK

Friday Night,1/9, 7:00 Francestown, NH

To be associated with Mike & Matt, Bobby, Phil, Dan, Steve, Lynchy, Voris, Sanchez, Sandy and all the others who are part of the Project,is just wonderful. The cooperation and professionalism these folks have shown makes my job relatively easy.
