Okay I looked it up. It just like what you'd think:

"A stomp box or stompbox is a simple percussion instrument consisting of a small wooden box placed under the foot, which is tapped or stamped on rhythmically to produce a sound similar to that of a bass drum."

Giggles and Danny keep running neck and neck. I'll get a text from one and 30 seconds later get one from the other. Then next song it's the other way around. She knows he's texting me but he don't know she is.

Awwww...when danny texted me Sweetest Thing he just said 'my anniversary song!'

For those who don't know, Danny surprised his future wife Andrea at Blackwater Festival last Aug. The band took pulled back in the middle of sweetest thing and JJ had danny come out and introduced him. Then Danny had Andrea come out and he got down on one knee and proposed. (She said hell no.) I don't know that I could do that in front of thousands of people. I'd be quaking.

Great show and venue...Clay you had the set list before the show ended..Scone added some nice soul to Lochloosa and Ms.  Giggles was gigging to Jr!  Shannon McNally was good, too bad Chris wasn't on the sound board for her.  Sound was 100% better for JJ.  Fritz and Lilly made the show as well. I think we got a story on every song.

Yeah Danny said JJ was telling stories and all. I texted back it sounded like JJ was having fun and Danny texted back he was having a blast. Danny said the show was excellent! Said JJ's voice was as stong and good as ever has been.

Morning!  Giggles was texting me too, but it was a school night so I could not stay up for awl of the songs    And when I woke this morning I checked my phone and my Giggles called me for Lochloosa and luckily she let my voice mail get filled up with that song, thank you!!!  Great way to begin my Friday!!

 

I was sooo envious to see that Adam played again with JJ, what a super talented key player.  I wonder if a taper was in the house?  Oh, and Giggles did say that she got video of The Butterfly verse at the end of Brighter Days, can't wait to see that!!!!!

 

I look forward to fritzi, MusiclovinMom, Giggles's reviews and snippets of memories from last night!!!!

Real quick before I run off to work (I'm late!) I wanted to post this video that I shot! It's a bit shaky but it was the best I could do with my bubbling excitement! More to follow when I get home from work!

This was one I simply could not stop myself from playing...

What an awesome show. As TM I was the one who would travel w/ JJ to all his solo in-studios at radio stations and all of his in-store appearances while we were on tour.. So I was familiar w/ JJ Solo. However, this is a whole new ball of wax. JJ has now truly come full circle. He doesn't need a band, he doesn't need horns, he doesn't need an electric guitar, he doesn't need to catch his breath or anything. His voice was fuller and stronger then I have EVER heard it and supposedly it wasn't even his best night.. He always was but now he is truly a One of a kind artist. The story telling, the flow, the songs themselves. He had everyone's attention the entire time even w/ a lot of story telling and banter. It flowed, it wasn't awkward, it was perfect.  I was like a proud papa walking out of there last night and was really happy for JJ. Sky is truly the limit and I know at 40+ years old what he does day in and day out and being away from home and leaving that adorable thing at home, is no easy thing..
In talking w/ JJ before and after you could sense that things were truly where they needed to be and w/ a growing European following and US following that the road ahead will be AOK and BUSY! Good to see Arlene AKA Giggles last night.

Oh, we bought 2 bottles of the wine!! Chris brought us a bottle while there. Delicious, although my head hurts today...

Wow roy...great stuff. So JJ's all clean shaven huh? Hey when y'all saw the piano out there did anyone have any idea it would be used or was it just like kinda sitting there like it usually does or something?

I love your shirt gigs...it says the word FUN right on top of your left breast. Nuff said.

And lookey Sunny! It's 10 a.m. and I'm up!!  I didn't get to bed til about 2 cause that damn giggles was still texting me.

They knew Scone was coming and I knew he would be sitting in as Chris told Scone  before the show "JJ is going to put you on the spot, we got the grand all ready to go, so be ready freddy"

Thank you much for your insights and comments Danny. We're all uber fans--and I know you are too--but your insights into JJ past and prospects for JJ's future carry much more weight and credibility than any of us could ever say. It's nice to hear someone who truly knows JJ and worked with him for years come on here and say what we all think but with nothing to back it up but our love for JJ, our support, and our dreams for him.
