It is Tuesday afternoon with an overcast sky, but it's been beautiful the past few days around here. I have been slowly getting back to work and it feels food to see folks out again. I played three shows last week on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. The Tuesday show was in Sun City for 87 folks out on the lawn. The Friday show was a private one on a friends ranch in Johnson City and the Sunday show was at Bernhardt's Winery with about 400 folks out on the lawn in absolutely perfect weather. It felt like old times. And at all, everyone is being respectful and using common sense in attending, and in presenting these shows as somewhat normal as life opens back up....to the relief of many and dismay to others! Mind your way and easy as we go!
Some great news!! My friend and fellow singer/songwriter Michael Hearne will be heading to Texas the middle of May. He has a couple of dates down here and we will be getting together and doing a show in Dallas at Poor David's Pub on May 22nd. Better get your tickets now! A heads up for all of you in the area, we haven't played together in many moons! Like February of 2020. Please check out www.poordavidspub.com for tickets and information. Music starts at 7:30 PM and doors open at 7:00 PM. We hope to have another date or two while Michael is here. I will let you know when we do!
So, the phone is beginning to ring again and venues are booking their calendars again. Let's hope it continues to reopen.
