What Happens in Vegas These Days……Makes Many (Such As Myself), Leave Las Vegas….

It’s been quite a while since I wrote I know, and much has changed since my last posting…….Today I am sitting here in Coldspring, TX in the middle of the Sam Houston National Forest, just north of Houston, TX where I now (for the time being) reside………No Longer in Las Vegas you ask??……..well indeed……that is the case……..for the last 12 years in Vegas alot has changed……to make a long story short……over those years, the town exploded in population…….and then when the current economy dropped out and Nevada passed Michigan with the Highest Employment Rate in the USA recently, all the casinos and entertainment venues cut back drastically on the amount of shows they do…….thus less work…….even for a veteran of my industry like myself…..and even recently, I was still getting 5 or 6 show calls a week in Las Vegas…….but with the drastic decline in the amount of shows going on, all the shows ended up being on the same days around the weekends………and as I have not figured out a way to clone myself as to be in several places at once……suddenly I was having to turn down more show calls than I could do in the course of one day…….SIGH……..and of course, eventually it got to a tipping point………so now I am back in Texas where live Music is King…..or so I am hoping……….So Now I am chasing Leads looking for work and trying to get my foot back in the door in the Houston and Austin Areas…….(along with re-adjusting to the Humidity and generally itching and becoming one giant Mosquito bite…….things that NEVER happened in Vegas)……..But I am enjoying things like…..Thunderstorms……(also things that Rarely Happened in Vegas)……..
