Why the road is work (July/Aug)

 Okay so it's not that much work but try driving a 1,000 miles just within Missouri and Nebraska in five days.   Thank you to Colleen and everyone at the Funnybone in Omaha.  Had fun sweating my ass off in that beautiful 102 degree Nebraska heat.  Seriously though all the shows had huge crowds and went great. 

But before I even dreamed of Omaha my first stop was at The Steel Gallery in Kansas City for the Nug Life launch party.  This show included a pool table 10 feet from the stage, a 10' half pipe skate ramp right behind the stage (with people skating it) and 50 rowdy audience members.  The party was a success and the show was....I'd say, an experience.  Go check out my boys at www.NugLifeWorld.comthey're awsome.

But one of the highlights of the whole trip was making it back to Lindbergs in beautiful and historic Springfield, Missouri.  I had performed once before at Lindbergs back in January for the sole purpose of performing finally for The Hillbenders.  Old friends and great musicans the guys had never seen me on stage so together we put the show together and had one hell of a night.  Six months later im back at Lindbergs with half the crowd as before but twice as much fun.  Made fun of some of the local subtle racism, 60 somethings owning large yauchts and still being able to have sex.  Thanks to local guys Matt Scheele, Matt Barnes for being cool and funny as hell.                    


 Upon my return to Los Angeles I jumped off the plane and headed straight to the Echo Plex for Prince Jazzbo and The Expanders.  Jazzbo was okay but the Expanders as usual killed it and had the place going crazy.   From LA I headed down south to San Diego for a few shows at the Comedy Store in La Jolla and for the Nug Life Radio party.  The shows went great and met a lot of new Jon Schieszer fans (Jon Schieszer loves third person) and can't wait to get back.  Stay tuned and i'll hopefully see you in a city near you soon. @JonSchieszer
