Today was an exercise in public performance to capture a video for promotional purposes. It appears to be high time for Jon Kanis to have an acoustic performance reel and today is the day to make it happen.

Spent two hours performing at Tucker’s Corner in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego. My good buddy Steve Laub (who is an superb videographer) came out to capture me in all my glory. Our friend Dave Foster is editing together 30 second snippets from 10 of the performances into a composite reel to put up on YouTube. I want to get out and see the world and earn my keep by singing for my supper. Coming soon to a living room, barroom, theater, pool side or cafe terrace near you…

Oh! and muchas gracias to Tucker and Paul at the North Park Nursery for their hospitality.
