VIDEO: Every Bloody Road … Mike Surber at Doe Bay

Doe Bay is paradise, so when Bobby Bare, Jr. asked me to tag along and open up for him there in December, it was a quick yes. And when Doe Bay asked me to come back in January to play another show it was an even quicker yes. Bringing the whole band wasn’t gonna...

Above The Fold

I got my first computer in 2005 while I was living in a tent in New Orleans. I’d been spending my graveyard nights washing laundry for sewage & water workers, Red Cross volunteers, flood victims, and soldiers. I needed something to do between shifts on the...

Travelling In The Works

I’m itching to get on the road.  Sunshine on the nearest tree has me looking at the one behind it and the one behind that and wondering what the trees 1000 miles east look like this time of day.  New seasons and new tunes call for some new scenery to play to....
