To answer the question I posed in the title of this post, we love them all!
When I signed on Twitter today, I saw this awesome message from our friends @ourstage:
How cool is that? Those guys are the best!

A couple of days ago, I had the chance to catch up with Nate. Our meeting was actually entirely unplanned. Ben was playing a show at The Local, a great bar in NYC, with his jazz trio and I came out to support. I had no idea that Nate had the night off from his tour and was in the area. When I felt a pat on the back, I was totally not expecting him to be there behind me. I was also totally not expecting to discover that the sound guy who was working with Bens’ band was actually an old roommate of mine from college. How crazy is that? This music biz is a small one.
After Ben’s show, Nate and I ducked out to let him schmooze with the crowd and headed off to Café Vivaldi to catch the last half of Neara Russell’s set. Neara is a good friend of Nate’s. He introduced me to her years back and I have been a big fan of her and her work [Official, Myspace] ever since. Needless to say, the show was awesome and we had a blast catching up with Neara afterwards. She had to head back to Boston that night which was a shame (overnighting it to another gig is always a drag) but that gave Nate and I chance to talk about some of his experiences touring with Meat Loaf! I’ll share more about that soon…
Hope this finds you feeling healthy!-Mason
