After a great solo show last Saturday night at The Millbend Coffee House Series hosted by Northwoods Unitarian Universalist Church out in The Woodlands just a little north of Houston, I am sitting here gathering my thoughts and looking at the final days and weeks in this month and in this year...2018, and reflecting on all that has occurred. It has been a wild one indeed. Life happened while we were busy making other plans. I am certain 2019 will be a better year!! But yet I am left wondering ‘How did it get so late so soon?’ I have three more shows this year:
Saturday Dec. 22 Michael Hearne and I, along with Mike Roberts, will be performing in Brenham, TX. at the 4-Star Concert Hall. . We were supposed to play a kick-off show for this concert hall and had a scheduling conflict. So happy we found another date. Make your reservations NOW! Kicky off your Christmas weekend! https://www.etix.com/ticket/p/2501277/shake-russell-and-michael-hearne-w/mike-roberts-on-bass-moved-from-oct27th-to-dec-22nd-brenham-4-star-concert-hall www.4starbrenham.com It’s been a while since I’ve played in Brenham. I remember a wonderful house concert series hosted by Glen and Cheryl Ducket I performed at several times and concerts in the streets, on the square in front of the Courthouse. Like I said, it’s been a while....playing at this venue is a wonderful way to return. I hope to see you all out for the show. Thank you for supporting live music. Good Tickets are still available.
On Dec. 29 we will be returning to Mainstreet Crossing in Tomball, playing our final show of the year. It is always a great time and show at Mainstreet Crossing. COME ON OUT and celebrate the Holidays!!! There may still have a few seats left for the event. The ticket link is on my tour page or go to www.mainstreetcrossing.com.
On New Year’s Eve I will be doing my annual Midnight Watch at Anderson Fair in Houston. Black eyed Peas and Champagne, noise makers, and a little music thrown in. Make your reservations now.

Again I thank you all who have supported my music and have attended live shows over the past year. We hope to see you all this year as well as 2019 as we come to a town near you.
