So, this was an amazing couple of days. It started off with me just needing somewhere to set my gear up to practice / configure / repair in the midst of a US tour, but ended up being a full blown salon / soiree / jam session complete with moments of inspired awesomeness which i’m eternally grateful to all involved for.
