Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

Open Call: How did you start blogging?

Posted on June 23, 2018 at 3:30pm 16 Comments

For the nine years or so that I was in a band in North Carolina I used amps that the bandleader had because my old one was kind of noisy. I’ve played a few times here and I’ve had my keyboard go through the PA, which meant how much I could hear myself was dependent on how much they put me through the monitors, which weren’t exactly pointing in my direction. I tried putting a little portable monitor on…

(For some reason, YouTube is no longer giving me Embed codes on my IPad.)

Earlier this evening I played rock n roll. How it works here is a local bar has a house band on Thursdays that you can sign up to play with - or sometimes a whole band comes and plays a few songs. I started a few weeks back and because keyboard players are rare I often sit in for most of the evening. My connection with the…
