Hey everybody… greetings from NYC. Sara B tour is in full swing and we are having a blast.

With Sara B in mind I’m posting this link for the shaker that I use on our live performances her single “I Choose You.” It’s a caxixi (pronounced “kah-shee-shee”) made by Toca. It’s made of synthetic materials but sounds great and I’ve been using the same one for over 15 years.

In other news, my new friend James Williams is playing drums with Emily King (one of our tour’s opening acts) and he is THROWING DOWN with some cool aux tambos incorporated into his kit setup. I’m gonna hunt some of those down and try to keep up with him.
