Kanye and Orlando

On the 4th, we played a show for Pepsi Smash with Kanye West and big Boi from Outkast. Was a decent show, had very nice backstage accomodations, and the VIP area in the arena was awesome! Met Kanye after the show, and he was a genuinely nice guy, very appreciative of all the praise people had for him.
So, yesterday, we took a 3 hour drive from Jacksonville to Orlando for the first show of our headlining tour. We played to a sold out crowd (2200) at the House Of Blues in Pleasure Island. What an AMAZING SHOW!!! Orlando fans are amazing, they responded so well to the show and the whole band had a blast putting it on. My buddy, and former Sprout lead singer, JT was there to see the show. I'm pretty sure he was impressed with the whole thing, having shared a stage with me, and now seeing what I've been up to lately. JT RULZ!!!
Oh, and finally, here's a picture with someone involved in the Superbowl festivities......

  • I just happened to stumble upon this blog while reading up on JT's myspace...

    Hi Jordan, it's George's sister, Lori. :-) Long time no see, kid. Glad to see you're doing so well for yourself...I love everytime George says little things like "Jordan's going to be on Jimmy Kimmel tonight!" or "watch next week's Ashlee Simpson show - Jordan'll be on."

    Now I can make all my friends watch it and be all "I knew that drummer waaaaaaay back when..." :-D
