I learned a sure of a hell of a lot about the Betts family
Tommy Betts mentored my dad in guitar. Another relative said he came over to Tommy’s house one day and said to him at the door “Do you drink?” “Do you fuck?”.
Saturday 822 AM
Heading to The Betts Family reunion!
This place has been so inspirational, I put off all other projects to instead create a little Michigan EP. All the sounds recorded are here in and around Marquette.
It’s called Marwuettiqutics Don’t have much to write I’ve been so busy working on these tracks for the new project for the week.
