one and all, and thanks for reading. I'll be out on the town, maybe in your
neck of the woods, starting tonight until Sunday, and it would be great to see you
at a show. New songs and venues, and opportunities to see live local music,
and insightful, sarcastic, serious, insane songs by yours truly. So here goes
the run down:
Thursday, 8pm at Off Broadway, supporting my friend and great musician
Ben Bedford, from Springfield, IL, I'll open the show
as Ben presents music from his new CD. $15 bucks at the door gets you in and
his new disc in your hand, or on your head if you prefer. If you are into
Steve Earle, Slaid Cleeves, or maybe even some old school John Denver, you will
love Ben's music. I can't wait to see the show myself!
Friday, join me and the full
band at Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood, 9pm-12a, for some
great rock 'n' roll, original tunes, and superb beer. I absolutely love playing
with Scott, Eric, and Matt, and they are amazing musicians in their own right.
If you get bored easily by the "singer-songwriter type," then this is
your chance to take it up a notch. Don't be afraid. Get your ass to
Bottleworks this Friday night and see what "everyone else" is talking
Saturday, I'll entertain at the Melting Pot in the Delmar loop from 6:30-10:30pm.
If you don't like boiled meat or melted cheese, you can still come in and get a
drink in the bar and say hello!! But by all means, invite your loved one on
a special date, share some fondue, and you might get lucky later that night (but
not with me.)
To round off this bountiful weekend, I present another new trio, at Chandler Hill Vineyards, 1-4pm, in Defiance, MO.
Wine country people! I've got a particuarly jazzy trio on Sunday, when I'll
be accompanied by drummer Nick Savage, and pianist Curt Landes. Curt has got
major chops, and some great stories about being on the road in the 70s with some
pretty heavy cats. You'll never hear them if you don't take highway 94 to
So, all I have to say now is, what more do you want?? We are bringing
it to you all weekend, and I want to see some friendly faces out there. Or
come pissed off if you want. That's just as good as far as I am concerned!
for reading. Hope this Earth is treating you well. Happy Holiday season!
