Just Who is this Active Rain Mystery Music Guy?

By
Real Estate Agent with McCall Realty

It was like we went to different schools together.

 

 

Well, we of course had no idea. We thought The GUY was coming to lake for a relaxing labor day weekend. The highlight of the trip, we thought, was to be that boat ride we give to every AR person who comes to visit.

But on the way to the boat, we found out that the GUY is a musician. A very good musician. An excellent musician. Lets just say we found common ground. Here on Active Rain we normally find kindred business spirits, but this was more. It's more like we found soul than business, like the difference between the head and the heart.

The video here is what happened when Mystery Man, and his much better half, walked into Gary's recording studio. With all of the guitars, basses, keyboards and amps all about, it was like being in a toy store, so sayeth The Guy.

It just so happens we've been knee deep in learning things video, a rather tedious process, and we got that little Flip camera to capture the moment. It's all impromptu, of  course, and what's here is more fun and excitement; a jam, picking and noodling, rather than anything supposed to be good. Like a performance.

The truth is The GUY is a world class guitar player, and an excellent singer and songwriter. She, lets call her Debra, has the voice of an angel, as you can immediately hear as soon as she hits her first note. Even while relaxed, sitting on a couch and just having fun as she  is here.

But this is more of a video exercise for us than much else, and it was just too much fun to pass up and not share. There is a moment when The Guy realizes he's on camera, but not before. It's when he laughs, and you can see him surprised.

Because The Guy is so good, and so much fun, lets go here to hear just how good he and his wonderful wife are. Please also check out his song "Realtor Blues."

And heres a song of Gary's, and another. These came from the band I put together and managed for him in Austin some years ago. (To say that there were a good band is understatement.)

We hope you enjoy this as much as we did, and that you let The Guy know, if you didn't already know about his terrific talent before.

Oh yes, before we forget, it appears there are qulite a few other AR musicians in our midst, particularly lurking about the main AR office.

There's another who our flip is sure to get. Just as soon as we meet up next. Then he's ours... even if  it makes him crabby. Stay tuned, and thanks.

Okay, there's a big white space or two in this post... is that supposed to be an embedded video?  I did enjoy the music at all the links, and I'll check back to see if videos appear/re-appear...
