Well there is just one more day in 2018.
Michael Hearne, Mike Roberts and I played our last show of the year at
“Main Street Crossing” in Tomball, Texas. The place was packed, a sold out show with a roomful of folks ready to party the night away. We even did a live recording of the show by Joshua Daugherty which was made available to purchase immediately following the concert. People were lined up to take home a copy. We love playing at Main Street and all of the good people on the staff. It’s always a good time. Thanks Matt and thank you Joshua for a great recording!
The week before we performed for our first time at “The Four Star Concert Hall” in Brenham, TX. Indeed it is a four star venue,
with a great sound system, an intimate size room, with a second floor balcony overlooking the concert area and stage below. John Elford has put a lot of time and energy into renovating the old building that sits just a couple of blocks off of the town square. He has turned it into a place for the community to come to hear music and other types of performances offered. Thanks John for inviting us. We hope to be back for another visit in 2019.
Speaking of party’s... Monday night New Years Eve, I will be doing a solo show at Anderson Fair in Houston. I will be there along with Ken Gaines and Wayne Wilkerson, GRAMMY winner Lynn Langham and GRAMMY nominated Doug Gill, along with Austin musician James Steinle. It will be a full evening of music, champagne and blackeyed Peas! The doors open at 7:15 and music starts at 8:45. Come on out and welcome in 2019 with us! Make your reservations now at www.andersonfair.net.
I do want to say thanks once again to all of you who came to one of my shows this past year, or bought a CD, or even a pound of my “Cowboy Coffee”, and those of you who continue to support the music and what I do. I couldn’t do it without you. I truly feel blessed for all the years as an audience you’ve given me. I am looking forward to another new year and writing some new tunes in 2019. Onward and upward. Watch for upcoming shows in January on my show dates on www.shakerussell.com. I will keep you posted. I hope to see you up the road soon.
Happy New Year Everyone!! Peace, Shake
