Just back from China, Beijing, last week, then had to rest , head cold, feel better now. Busy week and a half in BJ, packed it in.
Couple of solo gigs : one at the ‘great hall of the people’ , and the other a showcase at a great big newly opened disney-ripoff theme park in BJ, the biggest in China they say, complete with disney look alike castle , rides , mayan temple , a greek island facade with the requisite temple of olympia to pay homage to the origin of the olympics which are coming to BJ in 2008, an enormous trojan horse head , young 20 year old skate board and cycle artists and gymnasts from the ukraine, russian clowns , chinese models wearing weird fantasy outfits , the whole bit. am gonna give them a quote to have my 4-piece band perform there in late october between 2 festivals. am still in process of stitching a 4 week tour in china. we are looking for an angel , a sponsor to help us with tour and in return we can provide great advertizing opportunities !
Took part in Olympics related meetings on behalf of the Canadian Paralympic Committee, and also on behalf of my own aspirations with respect to performances during the 2008 Olympics. Fingers crossed .
