In 2019 I started recording my next album entitled 'Right Where I Am' with Gino Vannelli out in Troutdale, Oregon. Immediately COVID-19 decided to throw a giant wrench in everyone's lives. So what was going only to take a matter of months to finish has now taken over two years. I am thrilled to let you know that we did indeed finish the record in 2021 and that 2022 will be the year of 'Right Where I Am.' Stay tuned for more updates as they happen.
I am looking forward to hitting the road again with ABBA MANIA. All dates, venue, and ticket information can be found at the ABBA MANIA section under the TOUR section here at JeffPike.com. I look forward to seeing you at a show!
The 2021 Fall ABBA MANIA tour was very successful and packed with great times, spectacular performances, lots of stories, and loads of laughs. The short month we were out on tour supplied us with memories that will remain with us for some time to come.
At the onset of the tour, I decided to try something I had never done before. With the encouragement of others and my curiosity, I decided to try writing a tour blog while I was out on the road. I knew that it would be an undertaking, but I was willing to give it a try. It was, just like I thought, very time-consuming, and I did fall behind a time or two. I did enjoy it, however, and I feel that it could turn into a lovely coffee table book if I were given more time to finish each blog.
At any rate, I have finished it as much as I am going to at the moment and would love for you to check it out. It covers 25 days, so I would not recommend you read it all in one sitting! I do hope you finish it, though, and I would love to hear your thoughts, comments, and suggestions once you are through. Thank you for being part of my journey.
