I am now endorsing GHS Strings! I love companies with great track records, shows longevity and a solid product. I am in discussions with them for a personal/signature set that will be available to the public for purchase with PINK silk wrapped ends. Stay tuned as this adventure unfolds!!!!!
Back from a successful tour of Michigan with the Broken Walls band! Lots of exciting times across MI including a stop at Motown. Going to such a historic location is like a religious experience. All of the hits and records that came from that house on Grand Ave....Studio A is not a large place but the funk is strong there. Bill Pagaran (of Broken Walls) and I took the guided tour. All I will say is that if you love funky good music, you owe it to yourself to take the tour.
Here are some pics of the studio.....(and some others!!!)
Here is the link to the Ryan Weaver adventure at the Duke/Army Football game this past weekend...Lots to see there! We were well cared for and the show was a blast!
Many thanks to the companies whose gear ROCKS!!! Ampeg, Yamaha, Nine Line Apparel, Martin Cables, Shure and the Color Pink!!!
Here is a "behind the scenes" look at the Live broadcast on WSMV Nashville's (Channel 4) show Today in Nashville with Ryan Weaver!

In the summertime.....there are LOTS of opportunities to play live and the crowds of people have been wonderful! One of our strong fighting men is also a great entertainer/singer named Ryan Weaver. www.weavercountry.com/
