Tomm Rivers here anxiously awaiting the KT Concert in New Braunfels, TEXAS, Just 20 minutes north of San Antonio on I-35...
Got my 2 tickets...and coutesty of Josh, looks like 4 pounds of Trio Tee shirts of different types. Long sleeve, short sleeve. Plus some Tenor Guitar shirts. I haven't seen 4 pounds of shirts since I was in radio & we use'ed them in giveaways. Thanks Josh!
Josh and I had a GREAT conversation about different types of promotion(s), what his intentions are for the "short term", (that he could divulge) and, that he might very likely be stopping by my place for a day or two to discuss a couple things we tossed around on the the phone. Plus, he has, if I recall, 1 or 2 other "friends" to visit here in San Antonio.
Of course, this is all up in the air, pending his "personal" schedule".
If he does stop by the house, I'll break away from my normal format on my "Podcast" to just talk "TRIO" with Josh, also about his "Dad".
And, anything else I can squeeze out of him. (What would YOU ask?)
The last thing I want to do is get embroiled in any "legal" stuff, and he knows that.
We talked for almost an hour, although I found him "difficult" at first to pin down on some things, he did come around and
"just talk" to me, when he felt more comfortable, you know,
"one on one".
Actually, I'm kind of looking forward to meeting the "man behind the curtain" so to speak. So as we left it, I hope he allows time for a Texas trip does stop by to do a "podcast" with me. it would be FUN and "ENLIGHTENING", don't you?
I told him, it would be laid back, what he asked for & wanted in the interview, BUT...he had to give back when I shot my questions at him.
Like I said before folks - We'll see. Nothing comes without a price.
Also, if George Grove "LURKS" here. Then GREAT, or maybe Rick, can pass on this message from me.
I was one of the few lucky ones who was at Roger Gamble's house for George's audition, plus, I was in Denver when Tomm & Ben were auditioned and hired, (I believe George was there, so long ago) plus, I was in Skokie, IL for GG very FIRST gig with the TRIO at Pheasant Run, (the theatre in the round)...
"debobwan" has been very good to me!
So...Here's my get well wish, and Happy Thanksgiving old friend. It's been a long time since I've seen or talked to you, but you've been so kind to both my kids and I, there are no words to express how "GRATEFUL" I am to have you as a friend!
Your "new" group sounds "PHENOMENAL"! Only YOU, with Ricks help could pull that kind of sound off in such a short time.
With GOD's help your "brand name" will grow to a wild success.
Good luck, good health, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and have a GREAT New Year Mr. Grove!
TR - OUT!
