CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

A.V. CLUB VIDEO PREMIERE: Ha Ha Tonka - "Lessons"


FROM HA HA TONKA'S NEWEST BLOODSHOT ALBUM LESSONS                                                                                      


Season's greetings!!

After a highly successful year of touring the world and continuing to turn heads with their acclaimed and fully realized album Lessons, Ha Ha Tonka shares the brilliantly stark new music video for the album title track via a premiere on The A.V. Club. Directed by Brook Linder, who has directed videos for Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, A Place to Bury Strangers, and more, the video presents the band in an emotionally charged and visually stimulating performance setting, matching the somber but profound tone of the song. 

"A muted black and white clip full of silhouettes and vacant stares, the clip for “Lessons” is both soothing and jarring—just like Ha Ha Tonka’s tunes." - The A.V. Club

Ha Ha Tonka just finished up a year packed with months and months of touring globally with a final U.S. stint with founding drummer Lennon Bone. Bone's finale at Subterranean in Chicago was a fittingly celebratory career-spanning set in front of a packed house. The band is meanwhile beginning preliminary work on a new album.
