WOODFLOCK 2016 FINAL CALL

Woodflock’s 6th Year Will be Better Than Ever
Woodflock

Above is this year’s t-shirt design only available to Woodflockers, drawn up by Antsy hizself.

Well, it’s almost here! Just a few more days and Woodflock will be upon us. Antsy has often said it’s the most fun we have all year. The gathering of people make this event the most rewarding thing we do as a community. We have a lot of friends helping us along the way, and Antsy, the band and all of the Flamingoheads are truly grateful for them and their tireless efforts to make Woodflock memorable and meaningful to all those in attendance.
If you haven’t signed up for a cabin, but want to, don’t delay. We only have a few left. We’ve had such an outpouring of good mojo concerning our Red Bluff, California Woodflock, that we are looking to Franchise it. Ha. Well, that may be too big a word for it. We’re looking at a location near Nashville, Tennessee to host Woodflock East in the Fall of every year. We’ll keep you posted, and as usual, your feedback is appreciated. Any ideas you might have for locations, or how to make the event be the best we can offer, will be appreciated.
Antsy and the Troubs are looking forward to seeing you all again, hanging out, catching up, and sharing our journeys along this winding highway we call life.

SPACES ARE FILLING UP FAST. This is shaping up to be our best Woodflock ever. Apparently if you do something 6 times, you’re bound to get it right, huh? Woodflock is our favorite event all year. The best part comes in meeting and hanging out with folks who all have the same things in common: a love of music, a sense of humor, a desire to live authentically and “enjoy the ride.” If you’re one of those people, you should join us!
Just click HERE to get on board!
Woodflock is filling up! Space is limited. Join us!
Of course, Antsy and the guys will be bringing their usual music and humor with them. They’ll be playing songs off their latest album, as well as the old favorites. And Sunday night’s show is an ALL REQUEST NIGHT, as we do every year. You make the set list.
They’ll be performing every night around the fire, as usual. Also throwing it in will be Antsy’s dear friend, guitar master, Edgar Cruz on Friday night, the uniquely talented Sourdough Slim with multi-instrumentalist Bob Armstrong on Saturday night, and Sunday will be a few creativity sessions with Antsy and his friends.

We are also offering Yoga hosted by Dave Emery this year directly following the daily meditation. Meal time will be fabulous, as always. Also, our friend John Chips will be bringing his Monster Grill with him for us to enjoy special meat and veggies smoked to succulent perfection.

Another Year – Thoughts from the Trailer Park

AntsyStanMartinHi folks,
Well, it’s another year. Hard to believe it, but it’s true. We were all just sitting here minding our own business and we got a year older.
I had a friend once tell me that he moved around too fast, stayed on the go so much, that time couldn’t keep up with him. He looked younger than his years, so I wondered if maybe that was true, that we could outrun Time. I tried it for a while. Didn’t work.
You can play hide and seek with Time, but that sucker always finds you mere seconds after you’ve hid in the pantry with the dog food, behind the wastebasket. Sneaky guy comes up around the corner and taps you on the shoulder. You’re it.
I’m it? For what? What am I “it” for? What is “it” anyway?
Being “it” when tapped on the shoulder by Time, means “growing up.” I was never afraid of growing up. Like most kids, I saw it as being able to stay up as late as I wanted, being able to eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. Then I grew up, and while I was in charge of my own menu and sleep schedule, the rest of this stuff was total bull crap!
Taxes? Insurance? Utility bills? Rent payments? Seriously?
MoesAlley1I started to second-guess my desire to grow up. What was I thinking? But, as we have all come to realize, by the time you realize, it’s way too late.
So, I paid my taxes, paid my bills, established credit, bought homes, bought cars, supported local, modest economies, and kept food on the table and shoes on the feet of 7 people for a long, long time. It felt good, to be honest, this grown-up thing. Most of the time, anyway. And I settled into it like my father, and his father before him.
“You’re it.”
I am it, there is no doubt about it.
AntsyTrailers“It” is starting to mean “old,” now that I look around, and Time is relentlessly pushing me forward as I shuffle my feet, looking behind me like a shopper at the grocery store who forgot to get coffee before getting in line. There it was, right there on my list, and I overlooked it. How did I forget coffee? What is happening to me? And I’m next up. I can see the coffee over there in aisle 7, but I can’t get out of line now. There are too many people behind me, and I’ll lose my place.
I’ll lose my place. Now, there’s a loaded statement. We think Time gives us a “place,” but there is no place to lose. All Time does is count. And nag. If we listen to him.
While we busily go about the minutiae of life, Time – grumpy stickler of an account manager that he is – doesn’t give us one thought. He doesn’t care if we give him any attention or not. Time is oblivious of us. He’s in the back corner office on that noisy calculator with the lever that he pushes down every second of every day. Time is eating a chicken salad sandwich, with crumbs of white bread at the corner of his mouth. He’s oblivious to that too. Efficiency is everything to Time. The crumbs will take care of themselves.
AntsyCarsonCityWhich is where I am now, letting the crumbs take care of themselves. I’m in my early 50’s, and something clicked when I crossed over to this most intriguing of decades. I simply don’t care so much what people think. I spend less time worrying about saying or doing the wrong thing. I’ve had so much practice at making mistakes, I kinda know where the land mines are now, and I roll with it. This is not to say I won’t make any more mistakes. I’m probably making more. But I’m just not whipping myself over them like I was trained to do in the past.
And it’s 2016. When I was a boy, I don’t recall even thinking about 2016. That was the stuff of comic books and sci fi novels. But here it is anyway, without my thinking about it. And 2017 will do the same, with or without me. I’m hoping it’s with me.
Troubs2016There is a lot of ground to cover this year. I have a lot of new things in my life to be thankful for, a lot of good changes at home and in my career, and I’ll share them with you as things develop.
I hope you are all happy and healthy as you read this. And I look forward to the time we can talk again face-to-face. Until then, take care of each other. Hugs.

We have our annual Woodflock registration in full swing. We hope you can plan to join us Memorial Day weekend for this fun event!

DSC_2878Woodflock is the best event we do all year. It’s a gathering of Flamingoheads from all over the United States on Memorial Day weekend. We laugh, we catch up, we play music, we meditate, we do yoga, we eat good food prepared by Sue Butler, we drink, we share. It’s nice. It’s a camping event, but there are also hotels just down the road, 5 minutes away. Many choose this option. You do not have to be a camping enthusiast to enjoy Woodflock. There is something for everyone. Go HERE for more details.

 


State of the Trailer Park 2016

PoetLaureate
dallasHappy New Year to you all.

Life is challenging right now for many of you. I think of you often and wonder how you are doing. I look forward to when our paths cross again, and we can visit face to face.

As 2016 is upon us, many of us wax philosophical and get a tad sentimental. I am prone to do this, and make fewer apologies for it the older I get. I inherited my mother’s tear ducts, and have been accused of crying when Classic Coke came back. (It’s not true. It was allergies.)

ItAintHomeDecember was weird around here as our thermometer seemed to be stuck on 74 degrees for a good couple of weeks. Not that I’m complaining. I was practically sunbathing last Thursday until I got one too many weird reactions from my neighbors. The way I see it, a man should be able to lay in a hammock in his own back yard. With cowboy boots and a bath towel. Playing Abba. Really loud.

Troubs2016Anyway, it’s been warm is what I’m saying. It’s back to 34 degrees this week though, so our third Indian Summer of the year was short lived.

So, I was thinking of joining a gym, but they are too full right now. I’ll wait until the last week of February when two thirds of the new sign-ups will be back on their sofas in front of their televisions, embracing their bad habits like a long lost friend. Besides, there is still pumpkin pie in the fridge, and it won’t eat itself.

Pete Huttlinger

Pete Huttlinger

I’m working on a new album of all-new material with the incomparable Pete Huttlinger as collaborator and producer. Pete plays a mean guitar, but it doesn’t stop there. Banjo and mandolin are also strong suits for my friend of 12 or so years who has played with John Denver, Vince Gill, Leann Rymes and so many more. The album is untitled yet, and contains songs I’ve written over the last 20 years that were kind of waiting for a proper home. Warning to those who only like my funny stuff, and an announcement to those who really like my serious stuff: There won’t be any funny songs on this album. Most are love songs ripped from my own life over time – from some really dark places to extremely happy places – all written just as I lived through them. The instrumentation will be acoustic and light, some drums and bass, but heavy on acoustic guitar just as you’d hear it in my living room. We are thinking of it as a follow up to my popular solo album, Time-Sweetened Lies. I’ll keep you posted on its progress.

PaintingAs many of you know, I am renovating a 1953 mid-century ranch home, and adorning it with antiques from the era it was built. I have been entertaining and breaking the place in as the echoes of laughter and music seep into the plaster walls, giving it more life and warmth with each dinner party. It is a great joy to build a home around you and share it with friends.

I’m going to be painting again soon, preparing for a gallery show at The Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, CA this April. I’m very excited about that. I’ll let you know more about that as time approaches.

ConfusedWhinyI have been extremely happy these past few months, sharing time with my children and a precious handful of dear friends and loved ones. I am the luckiest man on earth, and look forward to 2016 with butterflies in my stomach.

 


Did You Take a Photo of Antsy in 2014?

Antsy has spent a good part of 2014 performing across the United States in solo acts, in shows with Tommy Emmanuel, in shows with Edgar Cruz and a number of shows with the Troubs.

Many of you, his Flamingohead family and friends, have gotten your trusty little photographic devices out and snagged a shot or two of his shows or got group photos with him.  We have grabbed a few of them off of Facebook and Instagram and posted them in articles about his tour.

However, as 2014 is coming to a close soon, we are putting out the call for as many photos as we can get from this year.  Sumoflam, the trusty web guy for Antsy (yes, that’s me!!), is planning to do a photo/slideshow of the year’s events, as it was a banner year for our friend and favorite singer/songwriter/storyteller dude Antsy McClain.

If you have some shots or videos you want to share, please send them along to me via email at sumoflam@sumoflam.biz.  If they are videos and too big for email, shoot them up to Dropbox and share them with me so I can download them.

 

Beginning in December and for part of 2015 Antsy will be making appearances on PBS around the country and many new Future Flamingoheads of America will be hitting the website to learn more about Antsy, his music, his art and his musical friends. We want to be sure they get a GOOD look!

Make sure to include in the emails the name, date and location of the show (or event such as Woodflock) and the photographer’s name so we can provide the appropriate credits. Following are a few samples of what we have from this year.

Enjoying the Ride With Tommy E: In the Heartland

Wichita, Kansas

Wichita, Kansas

Last week I was again reminded of how much fun it is to travel and perform with Tommy Emmanuel. We began the July leg of our 8 city tour in the heartland of America beginning in Wichita, Kansas and then moving on to Omaha and then north to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  Tonight we will continue in Rapid City, South Dakota and spend the week heading north to Montana and then finishing off in Washington and Oregon.

All of the venues have been amazing and the people at each location have been wonderful. I am having a ball!

While in Wichita I heard a wonderful story that I would like to share here.  The sign in the photo above is just behind the curtain, stage right at the Orpheum Theatre in Wichita, where performers can see it before coming out on stage. I’ve seen similar signs as I travel, reminders to road-weary entertainers what city they’re in on a particular night. It’s become an old joke, but I can tell you, the backstage areas behind these curtains all look the same, whether you’re in Kansas or Canada, and if you don’t want to anger your audience, you’ll get their city right.

The Orpheum in Wichita

The Orpheum in Wichita

There was deeper meaning to the sign however, when the stage manager told me Glen Campbell had taped it up there himself before a recent show on his farewell tour. Mr. Campbell, as you may know, has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.  Knowing this changed everything as I envisioned this seasoned veteran struggling with the details and minutiae of touring in this heart-wrenching way. He cared enough about this city, these people, to honor their name, and remember where he was, even when remembering is a luxury not afforded to him as freely as it once was. And I feel honored to be here, to stand where Glen Campbell has stood, to entertain people in this magnificent theater in one of American’s best cities.

I thought to myself before going on stage…”I honor the ‘Wichita Lineman‘. I am in Wichita, Kansas.”

The show in Wichita was like so many other venues. The Crowd in Wichita? Freakin’ amazing, that’s what! I felt welcomed with open arms by these new friends.

After a great night in Wichita, we moved on to the lovely town of Omaha, Nebraska in the heartland of America.

Our show was at the Holland Performing Arts Center. The photo to the left is Tommy sound checking in Omaha, NE. I was in awe of this great performance hall. Amazing.

Of course, like everywhere else, the crowd was a load of fun and the show was awesome.

I loved the good folks of  Omaha, Nebraska. What a fun night it was.

After a fantastic show in Omaha, it was on to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  We took our tour bus and headed into virgin territory for me. Traveling through the heartlands of Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota I enjoyed the verdant fields of grain, the wide open grazing lands and the abundant prairies.  The landscape is so different from the lush green of my home in Pine View Heights and from the California landscapes I have become accustomed to seeing.  It has been an amazing journey and has been all the more wonderful as I travel with the amazing artist and showman that Tommy Emmanuel is.

Last weekend I had a fabulous time hanging with my friends again in Grass Valley at the California Worldfest and also at the beautiful  Theatre DeVille in Vacaville.

As always, the Flamingohead family was out in full force with their fun outfits, cameras and hugs. The Troubs were spot on and we had a great time.

At Worldfest I was up on the big screen…a new thing for me. My ADD kicked in as I could see myself performing out of the corner of my eye.  Took some getting used to. The guy on the big screen seemed to be performing better than the guy on stage.

Many of the Pine View Heights cousins brought their cameras and caught the action of the shows. For those of you that may have missed out, here are some of their shots and comments. (By the way, the feature photo of the Flamingo capo on this post is also courtesy of John Taber)

Enjoying the Ride: Sellersville, Pennsylvania

On July 5 I headed to Sellersville, PA for a show at the Sellersville Theater, one of my favorite places to perform in the east. It had been a couple of years since I had been there and so all of the Flamingohead Family was really excited for the reunion!

I did the first set of the show solo acoustic, playing for an hour or so. It’s the longest solo set I’ve done in a long time, as I’m wanting to stretch, and get out of my comfort zone. The results have been good and the material has been well received. I brought bass player Jeff Gray and drummer Bob Masucci up for the second set. It was a lot of fun.

Jeff has performed with me on a number of occasions as has Bob.

I was really surprised at the excitement of all of my friends in Sellersville.  Dozens of photos were taken, some videos were made and we had an overall great time. I thought I would add a few photos and comments from the evening.

Thanks to all of my Flamingohead cousins and friends for attending and providing the photos below:
