Jeff, everyone here knows damned well how annoyed I am that you practically never come to the NY/NJ area, but I'm not taking it personally at all. ;-) In the last 10+ years, I was able to see you perform a grand total of 3 times (to me, the guest spot in Scrap Metal in CT doesn't really count): Once in NYC with Soul SirkUS, and twice during your solo tour (at MR Fest 1, as well as in Buffalo, NY a couple of night's prior to MRF). Judging by your many family & friends in attendance at the Soul SirkUS show, if you could pick and choose your tour, I'm quite sure that NYC would be on the schedule each and every year! But, sadly, it just doesn't work out that way. :::shrug:::

I completely understand that where you guys get to perform has to do with market demand, economic feasibility, timing, and venue availability, all of which artists have no control over. So, yeah, we may bitch and moan about it and you guys unfortunately bear the brunt of it, as you are the only face in your business that we usually get to see. I'm sure, from time to time, you must have indicated a desire to get certain locations added to the schedule, but very often it just can't be worked out logistically.

Then there are times when acts announce plans for a tour to only have it derailed or postponed for a whole host of reasons, such as the decision to package them with other acts in order to play bigger venues, or when exclusivity agreements prevent you from performing in certain areas that are local to an already-scheduled performance (such as the acts that are contracted to play Firefest each year), etc. There are a whole host of things that can happen and it would take too long to disclose all those reasons in a press release, which I don't really think that the performers need to. Hey, stuff happens.

Yeah, it pisses me off, but lots of things in life piss me off... We, as adults, just have to learn to roll with the things that we cannot change, instead of throwing temper tantrums.

...STILL Soto-less in NYC

Whatever, it's all just meaningless drivel anyway...
