The Captain Tractor Power Trio (Chris Wynters, Scott Peters, Jason Kodie and Shannon Johnson – YES, THERE ARE FOUR OF US!!!) will begin performing every second Thursday at OVERTIME in Sherwood Park starting on February 10, 2011. There will be no cover and we welcome requests via the Captain Tractor Facebook group. Hope to see you out very soon.

Today I am trying to get back to work at everything after a low key, family focused, Christmas vacation. It’s been a great break, but it feels good to get back at it.

I’m really concentrating on getting the score finished for RED LIPS, THE MUSICAL, which goes up in Calgary in June. (Produced by Liquid Meld Theatre at the Vertigo Space). It’s a bit behind – to be honest it’s a lot behind –  but I’m confident I’ll have the piano/vocal done within about 10 days or so. Jeff Smook is working on the bass and drum parts and he is making progress as well.

Once RED LIPS is done I will be back at SAINT AGGIE’S ’84, writing a couple of new songs and scenes for the two act version of the show. Still trying to find somewhere to workshop the new version in around April. (Any suggestions are appreciated).

The Captain Tractor record is now in the design stage and some shows are being booked for March. The actual release of the record will be in May or June and there will be some more live dates at that time. Hopefully we’ll being playing festivals all over the place this summer.

  • A photo from another world… February 15, 2012
    Here it is. The first glimpse of the next cast of Saint Aggie’s ’84. Yes, the photo is bit grainy and slightly unclear, reminding me a little of a photo from early space exploration, an early moon probe, transmitted back to earth slowly via radio waves and taking hours to receive, decipher and print. Of […]
