I'm glad you like the album but feel for your frustration. Is there a particular song. I could publish the entire songbook (which I really must do sooner or later) but, unfortunately, I had a computer meltdown awhile back and lost everything. Maybe this is the motivation I need to start my music recovery. :)
You are always welcome to listen to my music page at www.lojorusso.bandcamp.com - I have 20 years of music streaming on that page. If you mean hear me "live"? Well, then all I can do is point you to my gig schedule www.lojorusso.com/gigs.html and hope you live somewhere near where I'm playing. And if my gigs are not anywhere near you then I humbly request you tell me where you are and I'll do my best to get a gig in your area.
That's the best I can do, Anonymous,
Funny you should mention that. I'm actually working on a west coast tour right now - mostly Northwest (WA & OR) with a stop in CA on my way up to see my brother in LA and Dad in Santa Cruz - probably around the week of Jan 12. If I am able to put something together near you I'll let you know - or maybe one of your girls would like to host a house concert? :)
Love to everyone! ~Lojo
Hello Cory and Katie,
I totally remember the two of you!
I'm so glad you enjoyed the show and the music. As for performing at weddings that is something I have done in the past and would be interested in doing for the two of you. Keep me in the loop when you have a date and let's see what we can do.
Congratulations and Happy Holidays!
It was great to meet you, too! I hope to see your band play sometime.
I'm glad you enjoyed the show. Even when I'm doing my grown-ups gig I have fun cuz my motto is:
If you're not having fun, stop what you're doing and do something else!
By your eddress I'm going to assume you are also a musician.
I'd like to answer your question but first maybe you could tell me why you're asking; like, are you just starting out and hoping to make a career out of music and looking for some guidance? or assurance that money can be made in this business?
If you've never been to one I suggest checking out this link: http://www.concertsinyourhome.com/resources/forhosts.html It'll give you some ideas about what they are and what you can do.
I would be in your neck of the woods the first part of February and could make you part of my swing tour home. FUN!! ~Lojo
I am the " MOM " of Mark Meleski . I listened to your wonderful songs during Mark & Jodi's wedding and reception this month.
Sharon Knight..... Scottsdale, Az.
It was wonderful to meet you at the wedding. You've got a fine boy there, and he's married a great gal.
I'm so glad you like my music! And funny you should ask. I'm planning a west coast trip for after the new year and plan to gig from Seattle to Temecula (LA, CA).
If you have a favorite place (winery, bistro, coffeehouse) where you go to listen to music let me know. Or maybe you could sponsor a house concert?
Thanks for the question and Hope to see you again soon!
That's a great question but a hard one for me to answer.
I am constantly writing, though it's rare that I'm sitting down and concentrating on one song for very long and even more rare when it's done the first time I write it down. Generally, when I'm writing a song I may sit with it for 10 minutes to an hour and I'll revisit it over and over again until I'm happy with the result. For instance; Jasmine Wind took almost 15 years to complete whereas, Undone, (a song off the new album) took about 15 minutes.
As for practicing - if you're asking this question in order to influence yourself or someone else to practice more or less often it I would like to stress that it doesn't matter how often I practice. What matters is that YOU practice as often as necessary to become the guitar player you want to be.
Write. Practice. Repeat.
