BandVanAdventure 2017: The Final Adventure.  Phew....all done and it was a doozy.  While I will still make the occasional "out-of-town" music trip, this is the end of my touring days.   It was a grand adventure over all of the years.  I played a lot of shows, sold a lot of CDs, drove through spetacular scenery, spent freezing nights in the van (and hot, sweaty ones too).  From Bellingham, WA to Boca Raton, FL - mountains, plains, deserts, and beaches...there was no place I wouldn't go.  I just want to say thank you to all the people who came out to see me, all the venues that hosted me, all the press and radio, all my friends and family for the support.  I couldn't have done any of it without you.

Even though I've been a "one-man-band" sometimes it felt like I had an army behind me.  Thank you for coming to the shows, streaming the tunes, watching the videos, buying merch and music, and hanging out on social media - it's been great.  I started the "Solo Sax Sessions" in 2011.  I did my first gig at Starbucks on August 1, six years ago.   Since then I've been criss-crossing the country playing hundreds of shows, I moved to Texas, I put on LoopFests in multiple cities within 5 states, spent two years as a paid columnist for, and put out all sorts of fun content including Noah and Hideki's Big Adventure (you haven't lived until you spend 8 days in a van with a friend whom who don't really have a common language.)

It's been amazing, difficult, exhausting, and more. It's impossible to really describe one of these adventures let alone sum up all my touring. But it's time to sink my teeth into Texas and focus on the business here.  Thanks again everyone - my BandVanAdventures were an adventure of a lifetime. The memories and friends I have from them are priceless.

O.M.N.I.  While we are at work on the 3rd release, please check out our video "Captain Function Vs. the Brainwashed Hubron Elbards." Tune into the CDBaby Page for the narrative in the Space Adventures of Captain Funktion. Here's the Spotify link for the Newly released 2nd album O.M.N.I on Spotify.   

West Kings Highway: is literally rocking and rolling, the band is getting tight, our Friday nights at Sancho's are hot, hot, hot!  We're getting more festival work and private parties.  Come see us!

GrooveTron-X: The hippest electronic act in Texas has a new residency starting in August.  The 2nd and 4th Thursday will find us at Halcyon, 9 to 11pm, free shows for all the party people that want to get down with some livetronica chill grooves.  And we've got some plans to expand our web presence.  Hopefully we'll have that coming together in the very near future. 

Noah Peterson: Things are changing for me as well.  My eldest brother Travis sent me some gear for Christmas, specifically a KAOSS KP3+Samper/effects processor. I've also upgraded my loop station to the RC-300, changed my "bass" pedal to a POG2 for extra, beefy goodness, and put Option Knobs on my delay pedal for hands-free adjustable controls.  This has led to the development of a new show that I call "I Sing the Sax Electric." I will still do the "Solo Sax Sessions" here and there, but I've got a very different electronic music show for you all to enjoy.  Stay tuned for videos and recordings.  Speaking of recordings - I've got some noise stuff coming out as well as live tracks with the original DJ LAW, a collaborator on my "Bump" CD.
