I had a great weekend, hanging out in DC at my good friend Jim Heaney’s wedding. Jim, known to many as the Mothman, was a fellow Suspicious Cheeselord/housemate/Glee Club alum and remains a good friend. I had a fabulous time meeting Rebecca’s family and reconnecting with friends—Doyle, Vick, Cheeselords, it was good to see all of you again.
In particular, I received the welcome news that the next Cheeselords recording, of unrecorded works of Jean Mouton, will be coming out soon. Having heard the group on Saturday, I can only say that (perhaps fortunately) it’s a completely different sound than when I was there, and I can’t wait to hear how it goes.
And, yes, all survived the hike on Saturday morning. Definitely the only wedding I’ve ever been to where the groom requested a bachelor hike in lieu of a party. Despite my fears of dropping from cardiac arrest, I had a lot of fun. Jim and Rebecca, I can’t wait to hang out with you guys again soon; you throw a heckuva party.
