AUSTRALIA IS HOPPIN'

KANGAROO

Australia is a HOPPIN' country Peeps!! When we were in Perth there was time to visit a wildlife Sanctuary that was absolutley incredible. It was a treat to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat and to be able to get up close and personal with the native creatures that are normally so reclusive and only active around dusk & dawn. COOLNESS!!! I'll post more pics later when I have more time... That's not today though.

FLIGHT TO SYDNEY

After flying into Sydney yesterday we hit the road to perform @ The Juniors in our "home town". When we were here 18 months ago Sydney was our home base for travel on the east coast, it felt like home when we landed and checked into our hotel in Potts Point. These are BS&T's stomping grounds and we all enjoy the location, it's just 5-10 minutes (depending on how fast you walk) to all the shops and attractions that this fast pace city has to offer. I won't bore you with the usual shots of the Opera House & Skyline...FullSizeRender

Awe Shucks, I couldn't resist throwing out a shot from my hotel room that has a killer view of the city we are calling home for the rest of the week till we head off to Brisbane and on to the next gig.

DARLING HARBOR

I got out and walk-about to visit Darling Harbor for a bit of lunch and reminiscing. There is so much to do here and you could never fit all there is in one trip folks. I have my favorite food spots, hangouts and chill places that I always enjoy poppin' by, the harbor is one of them because there is a massive collection of old and new ships & submarines to take a glance at. The history of this city is rich in culture and makes you realize how young we are as a nation. I'm glad we have some down time after tonights show to recharge and recoup from the travel and shows over the past several weeks in Sydney so I can catch up on R&R and pick up gifts for everyone back in the states.

BST SYDNEY

The Juniors crowd treated BS&T right last night in Sydney and we will be playing right outside of town tonight for another packed Aussie house. I hope they can live up to the audience last night though, they were loving the music and players and gave back to us generously. This picture was taken by our keyboard player Adam Klipple's cousin who came out to support her family and his BS&T bandmates, a giant thank you to Melissa Gock for joining us and for letting me use her killer pic of us in action doing what we do best... PEEL BACK FACES WITH THAT GOOD OLE ROCK/JAZZ & ROLL!! CHEER MELISSA

Now I'm off to sound check for another round of facial peeling and Rock & Roll dealing. Check back in daily @ bobice.com to see even more of my road journey with BS&T on out tour of Jakarta/Australia/Hawaii. 

ROCKING FROM ADLAIDE TO MELBOURNE

BURNING UP THE BIKE

I took time off at the 1st of the year and missed the 2 week Florida tour because of my reoccurring stomach issues. I've been taking the Dr's prescriptions as directed, not just the medications but the advice to get a handle on my diet, lower my stress levels and get plenty of excersize. I thought the belly problems would be the thing that took me out, it might be the dawg gone excersize!!! 30 minutes on the elliptical bike then 30 minutes of Yoga every day is wearing me out, I do feel much better than I did a month ago though and Caroline might be pleased with some of the changes I'm making in spirit, body & mind...O.K. we all know ya can't fix CRAZY but 2 outta 3 ain't bad!!! Seriously though, I'm feeling better than I have in years and it's making a big difference in my life already.  

THE GOV ADELAIDE

We played a really cool venue called THE GOV in Adelaide the other night and the crowd we so gracious and gave back as much as we were giving from the stage. There was one lady who got up out of her seat and approached the stage 3 times and took hold of my hand, looked right into my eyes and said "You're all so lovely, I've loved BS&T my entire life and this is the best night I have ever had!!" That is such a complement to all of us in the band who love this music as much as all of you on the other side of the stage, because there has been so many Alumni of BS&T for a lifelong fan of this band to considered me and our band family in such high regards is a very special complement. I feel that my short time in this group has helped me become a better performer, vocalist and overall person. I'm grateful that I've had a chance to become an Alumni of 2 of the most iconic American powerhouses of music and television, not to mention enjoying a solo career that has introduced me to so many friends, fans & music lovers. It's very humbling to say the least, THANK YOU ALL!!!

FLIGHT TO MELBOURNE

Then off to the next town to do it all over again one more time. What spectacular views everywhere you look here in Aussieland! I have had a hard time keeping memory cleared from my iPhone to be able to take in all the beauty of this country, guess it's time to upgrade my Dropbox again.

INTERVIEW TIME

Once we arrived in Melbourne it was time to get to work doing interviews and press for the show tonight at The Palms @ Crown. I always love talking to the local interviewers and spreading the word about where you can catch the best show in town while you have the chance! Thanks for letting us pop in Dennis, we appreciate you giving Larry and I the mic to gab with you about the past, present and future of BS&T.

SOUNDCHECK THE PALMS THE CROWN

Now my BS&T brothers and I are about to give these folks at The Palms @ Crown in Melbourne a show to talk about till we return for a 3rd time to visit this incredible country in a year or 2. I've enjoyed myself so much these past 2 times that I might just make the move over to Australia after I retire and decide what I want to do when I grow up.... Maybe a COFFEE SHOP MUSIC VENUE!!! BO'S JOE?

 

 

ROCKIN FROM JAKARTA TO AUSTRALIA

BS&T rocked the JAVA JAZZ FESTIVAL 2 nights in a row and left it all on the stage for our friends in Indonesia. It was an honor to perform for such and incredible group of music lovers who are half the world away from where this band began and they show the same love for this music as our friends back state-side. BS&T has provided many firsts for me in my 3 years as part of the band and Jakarta was one of the coolest!! I LOVE MY JOB.

BST JAKARTA NIGHT 1

The first night was amazing, we really let'em have it folks. They were all about these BS&T players in JAKARTA!!

BST JAKARTA NIGHT 2

Night two was another killer performance from my brothers and I. I've said it time and time again that you never want to be the weak link in this musical chain of insane musicians. Never since American Idol have I been lucky enough to share the stage with such incredible performers, who I happen to love & respect as much off stage as on.

ELLIOT BB

Speaking of IDOL!!! Who did I run into in Jakarta? ELLIOT YAMIN!!!! One of the coolest katz on the face of the planet and one helluva performer in his own right. Elliot and I have shared some really fun moments on this earth during our friendship.... SOME I MOMENTS I CAN'T DARE MENTION!! What a great person and a dedicated friend and artist. Love ya Elliot, it was great to see you againg, wish we could've hung out more but the crazy schedule didn't leave us the time.

JAKARTA TO SYDNEY MED

Then it was off to Sydney, then a flight to Adelaide. We got to the hotel in time to grab a bite to eat at the coffee shop in the lobby and make some new friends Josh, Izzy & crew had great food and a really friendly staff at the "Local Grind". as a matter of fact I enjoyed it so much I joined my pals for a cup of JAVA before starting a run of interviews this morning for our show tonight.

INTERVIEWS FROM BED IN ADELAIDE

I Ade-Laide around in bed with my cup of "Local Grind' coffee while I chatted with the local station to promote the BS&T show here in Adelaide tonight. I hope we'll have a good crowd this evening, they'd better be ready to get their faces rocked off because BS&T came back to Aussieland with both barrels loaded, ready to kick some "yellow-tail" and take some names!! Please join us if you're in Adelaide or any of the other stops along the way on our 5 week tour of Jakarta, Australia, Hawaii.... THEN BACK HOME FOR A WEEK AT DISNEY PERFORMING FOR THE 2nd YEAR IN A ROW!!! I love taking the mouses money!! If BS&T play there 3 more years in a row Mickey & will be about even on the money side of things(LOL). The Bice kids & CAROLINE help keep the doors to The Magic Kingdom open as many times as I've taken them down for a visit.

I'm headed down to the gym for some Yoga & workout with our Keys player Adam... THEN BACK TO THE LOCAL GRIND HOUSE TO GET ALL JACKED UP ON ME COFFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

PEACE, LOVE & PRAYERS TO ALL!
