In Milwaukee I decided to use the small format of these performances and encouraged people to ask questions. The usual stuff, difference between a classical guitar and a flamenco guitar, difference in the right hand techniques, favorite album etc., but more enjoyable than just playing some songs – especially since the Borders sound systems all suck. They have identical Carvin mini P.A.s in every store, complete with Carvin microphones, and not a single employee has been trained to run them. Robby usually fiddles with it and gets the best out of them and we bring a couple of mics for his cajon and my guitar.

    Very cool! Shame there’s no performance in NY, though :( Are the setlists similar to the ones you do live, but shortened?

    Also, if you’re looking for another performance to add to that list around the time of the BB Kings shows, Borders in Westbury, NY is good :D Maybe 30 minutes out of Manhattan, very nice store (and I live near it…:P OK, so I’m selfish, so sue me…lol). The number is 516.683.8700, or so borders.com says…

    When you are at the Winter Park Borders, take a look around…you posted a story last year in regards to failing malls being replaced by urban shopping areas. That Borders is located in the shopping area that was mentioned in the story.

    Wow – what’s the response at Borders been like? I mean, did people even know you were coming?? Guess they do now! That’s very cool – wish I had the chance to go to one of those! Have fun with it!

    I have always loved to wander around Borders. It seems like in some of most important events of my life I find myself in Borders or Barnes& Noble with those I love. Now I’ll have an even more special feeling there.
    Come to Rapid City’s sometime. I’ll be there
