Kev Plays Herbie in Beijing

Usually it follows that when you have the most to write about, you don't have the time to do it. This weekend was awesome and busy. Many late evenings, early mornings and not enough sleep. I'll do my best to recap soon. In the meantime, a quick youtube video.

I went to Eric Wu's birthday party on saturday night. He's my ultimate frisbee co-captain for summer league. Cool dude. His parents took about 12 of us to the Hong Kong Jockey Club where the dress code is enforced, the food is exquisite, and the Jazz band is incredible. Probably the best meal I've had in Beijing.

After dinner, we went to the bar downstairs and had another drink. I talked with the bartender for a little bit and expressed my longing for the drums. He said he would ask the band if i could sit in. They didn't hesitate and before i knew it, i was onstage again. I had almost forgotten how much fun it was to play in front of adoring, screaming fans, everyone of them locked into the groove. Of course, there were only 10 of them this time, but it was great.

Chirona was awesome, as always, and captured this quick video. I owe her big. The song is Cantaloupe Island by Herbie Hancock, and these cats i am playing with are really good.
