Hi everyone – As we close out yet another strange year, I wanted to wish you all a happy and peaceful New Year and 2022.
On the music front, things weren’t all bad in 2021. I was able to re-start the monthly acoustic gigs at the Dublin Pub in Portland, and the Paul Lesinski Band did its fourth pandemic-era livestreamed gig in March with Northwest Talent Spotlight. I also was able to do an acoustic livestream with NWTS before the show went on hiatus. There are some songs posted on the Paul Lesinski Music YouTube page for your perusal.
But you know, we aren’t done with this stupid pandemic. The Floydian Slips shows that were booked for early January have been moved to Saturday April 2 (McDonald Theater in Eugene) and Saturday April 9 (Revolution Hall in Portland). Let’s hope things settle down by then and we can celebrate proper. Interestingly, May 2022 is the 25th anniversary of the Slips’ first gig, a one-off project to play Dark Side of the Moon all the way through, live. Little did we know we’d be still kicking it 25 years later!
I am thankful for my family, my health and my ability to play music. I also thank you for your continued support. So as we step into 2022, I wish you all the best. Here’s to health, happiness and chasing what truly fills you.
See you around!
