PAK AT THE CROC
Gratitude and joy dripped down my face and soaked into my t-shirt as I walked off the stage. So many people I love deeply came together from different circles to make Pak at the Croc come to life, and a room full of beautiful people in the audience gave so much love back. The smiles, the laughter, the cheering after each song - those are the priceless things that money can't buy. I LOVE my band - we've gotten so close in the last couple of months and what we played at The Crocodile is the closest we've ever come to the sound I hear in my head every night before I go to bed. So grateful to have my braddah Prometheus Brown (Blue Scholars) host the show and rock "First Avenue" and our brand new song "Walls" that we're about to record. Last year Stone Gossard (Pearl Jam) and I recorded a song called "Champions" and he joined us on stage for our first live performance of the song with the full band. And to get the party started, who better to open the night than the talented young artists from Totem Star, who I've had the honor of mentoring in our studio each week. This show was one for the books and I'll always remember it as my first Seattle show performing as Daniel Pak.
