Hi there! For those of you who don't already know me, my name is Lisa. I'm the chick behind the keyboards. What an amazing 4 months this has been. We have been to Europe twice, completed two residencies and are now well into the Fall US Tour. Time flies when you're a Pumpkin!
Jeff took this pic in Paris with his amazing camera
Orange Peel (Asheville, NC)
Fillmore, San Fransisco, CA.
Here's a little bit about me . . .
Fav things to do on travel days . . .
Catch some zzzzzzzs,
read sacred poetry, journal & solve sudoku puzzles.
(Billy thinks I am completely addicted but, I say I can stop anytime I want!)
Artists on heavy rotation on my IPOD right now . . .
Lots of Hendrix and Deep Purple (Jon Lord's organ solos are mindblowing!) Jeff totally hooked me up with Hendrix "Live at the Fillmore" and I am obsessed with learning the song "Power of Soul". What a huge sound Hendrix had & all three of the band members were just monster musicians!
Most memorable experience on tour thus far . . .
There are sooooo many but, I would have to say visiting the Moog keyboard factory in Asheville, NC. I was like a kid in a candy store; playing with the theramin and all of the cool effects pedals. Anyways, I went there with Billy just to "check out" the factory and I went home with their brand new Minimoog Voyager keyboard!! I just had to have it!
Here we are at the factory
Checkin out the cool toys!
This is the keyboard. Isn't it beautiful?
Here are some more highlights . . .
Scotland was beautiful!!
Vegas, baby! We had a great show at the Pearl Theatre
