Sunshine On Your Face On a Sunday Afternoon- Live from the Cove Atlantis in the Bahamas
Playing at the Cove was great experience.
I’m a unique guy when it comes to creating an embracing musical experience. More so than playing songs, I challenge myself to spontaneously create a musical weave of heartfelt, sensual, sometimes classically familiar, sun-shiny, romantic, playful, downright funky, tropical, Caribbean, groover rock and roll, and out of nowhere electric vibes to create a sensation, that through that lush breezy sound system, intertwines with all of the other luscious stimulus and reverberates through the vacationing reveler’s bodies and states of ‘Yes! I am somewhere else’ minds.
And doing it different every time to showcase how much good music crosses so many genres, and in doing so, I am earning my keep with a sense of contributive purpose. I read books on music theory and emotion and the effects on the brain as well as inundating my mind with biographies of music’s greatest, or histories of this or that sound (I’ll be teaching this in a few years), and then hit the record shops, my shelves and music library looking for those song ingredients to add that may aid in my quest to perfect the recipe. It was always so much more than packing the CD book with the surefire hits, I’d prepare for hours for several days prior to my trips because I owed that kind of approach and effort to those hard earners who have invested some much into a satisfying good time get away.
It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to attempt to maestro that ‘let it all go’ vibe at such a lovely oasis. There were many moments of bliss for me with the sounds, views, the breeze, and the perpetual look of “it’s so good to be here” on the faces of the guests, all flowing together giving everyone there, staff too sometimes, that feeling of ‘there’s no place I’d rather be than here.’
