Yes, I'm playing a few shows, here and there. Unfortunatly, my website got STUCK, so I haven't been able to post all of the shows, but if you give me your email.....I can put you on the (unsellable) list.
Where are you?
Good afternoon L.J.
It's been 25 years since you played at my wedding in Dundee, IL and I wondered if you might like to play at my oldest daughter's wedding next November. Let me know if you still tour or play private gigs.
Rene' & Suzanne VanDerHeyden
Rene & Suzanne-
Good to hear from you.
I would be honored to play for you daughter's (congrats) wedding.
Let's talk details, and go from there. I also play private gigs too.
I saw you play once at Birch Trail Camp for Girls in the 90s! Are you still playing? What does it take to bring you in for a show? I now own a very small business in Woodbury. Just opened in Dec 2018, I'm exploring options for live music?
Good to hear from a Birchtrail alumni--
Woodbury, Vermont? Minnesota? Yes I'm still playing, and yes, let's have a talk about the possibilities.
Sorry, but I"m having problems updating info on my website. We have a good mailing list for the area though, and I'm sure that will support attendance.
Maine? Good question.
Right now I'm battling Neurolyme, and getting out only occasionally. But we're hopeful that the treatment will be successful....and then.....New England is definitely on the list. I've never played in Maine, but if you have suggestions (as a local) of good gigs, I'd love to have that info as a form of forward thinking.
All the best
I do not live in the US anymore so I have not heard you in years but it's funny, one of the songs I still remember is the Bathtub Virgin. I was googling for it and see that someone else was asking about it! I would enjoy hearing it again if you can tell me where to find it. Thanks! Jeannie
Thanks for the reminder of BATHTUB VIRGIN. Songs go through cycles in my setlist, and that one has long been laying by the wayside. Time to pick it up again! It isn't a song I've recorded, so you'll just have to wait until we're on similar plots of the planet to hear it again.....live!
What makes me laugh? The unexpected, the miraculous, a timing that defies logic, a thought that surprises the brain, and the goofy, gangly, non-adultish.
Ticklish? Not so much. Do I love to tickle my son? Much.
Hi LJ, not really a question, more of a response to your answer on your recent battle... VERY SORRY to hear that! Hope your recovery goes quicker and is more thorough than you can imagine. Since I am now on your email list, I know we will be hearing good news at some point. Keep the faith! P.S. I attended a concert years ago at the Cultural Center in Cedarburg. I absolutely loved the whole evening. It was beyond wonderful! Loved, loved, loved all the songs, especially the one about your grandparents, as well as the couple who 'Blew the Carbon Out" from Chicago (hopefullly I have that right!). God Bless YOU! Shellie Olson
Thanks, Shelly. I'll be back. All the best to you and yours.
As you have seen, my website is quite outdated, and actually, was down for a couple years.
The challenge I'm working on isn't songs, right now. It's NeuroLyme. We're hoping that the treatments will help me recover, so I can come down and play the old neighborhood again. Cheers. LJ
I recently heard your song Boxelder (played by D. Wilcox). I thought that the bridge -- about using the tree to erect the Cross on Calvary -- was something the man from the county said to motivate you to want to cut it down. Is that incorrect? (I am not religious, so if there's a more obvious interpretation, it's escaping me). Thanks, Steve
Steve-- I"m not "religious" either.
