"Life’s A Good Gig- A gringo musician’s journey into the world of Latin music" "...a perfect read for all the dreamers and air-guitar players out there who never figured out how to travel and play music for a living." (San Diego City Beat) A must read for any parent whose teenager wants to be a musician. Insights into the secret lives of working musicians. About the Book “Life’s a Good Gig,” takes us on an international romp from the ultimate groove to the infamous gig from hell with a band of brothers like no others, some cool cats, some downright deadbeats. It’s Jimmy Buffet gone Bill Bryson.
