Caruthersville, Missouri-2009 50 States in 50 Days-Nov. 3rd

by Kevin on November 5, 2009


Our Missouri date canceled while Sean and I were in Japan…………2 weeks out. My blackberry wasn’t working while I was in Japan, so that seriously cut into 10 days of planning prior to the 50 States in 50 Days tour, so some things have fallen through the cracks, and I have been playing catchup since we arrived back in the US. I missed the cancellation email until 4 days out.
Divorce seems to be a theme for cancellations on this tour……………..our original host house is suffering from the D word, so she the idea of a house concert wasn’t working so well…….thus the change.
Kaci’s college friend in Caruthersville, Missouri stepped in to help. Kaci called her on the 1st and put the plan into action. Her friend Misty is the assistant principal of the middle school in Caruthersville, and she was able to set up a gig at the local library…..it has a great little auditorium with GREAT acoustics.
We had a collection of local folks there…….the mayor, the local DA, the judge, various members of the local arts council, a retired lunch lady supervisor, and all Misty’s fellow teachers. They were super nice, and enthusiastic.
After the show we went to the local pizzeria………the owner was interested in the concept of the tour……stayed open for us, and bought a cd. Nice guy.
Misty drove us to the mighty Mississippi, and Sean dipped his pinky in the Big Muddy. Thanks to Misty and the good people of Caruthersville, Missouri!
Here is the video:

We are currently rolling down the road in Iowa toward Minnesota. Sean is in the back editing last night’s video from Iowa……….will be up later. Kaci is driving and I’m feverishly trying to find a house concert in Indiana for this Sunday! If you know anyone…….who would like to host a house concert in Indiana, then please get in touch?!?
We do need emergency help with booking the following dates as well:
Sunday, Nov. 8th-Indiana-know anyone?
Monday, Nov. 9th-Michigan-Know anyone?
Friday, Nov. 13th-Connecticut-thoughts?

Wed, Nov. 18th-Rhode Island……….?

If you want to host a house concert in one of those states, or have a friend, or family in those states……then please email me and let’s figure it out. We have to keep the streak going to fulfill the 50 States in 50 Days commitment. Last year some of the BEST house concerts were booked the day before, so i’m fired up to see what transpires over the next few days. Just email me, or call me on 615-713-2124………but not early………smile.

The 50 States in 50 Days tour will see us driving about 22,000 miles in my truck, and flying a few thousand as well. I estimated the fuel costs today, and it came out to $2494.70 for the entire tour! If you’d like to help by buying a tank of gas, or a gallon, or even the whole darned $2,494.70…..then please click on the photo below, and it will lead you to paypal! Thanks!
