    Show Time: 8-9:15pm I am super excited for this show! This will be my first show of 2014. I am playing Live in Concert at Chicago’s famous Elbo Room. I will be playing an intimate solo acoustic set in the cocktail lounge upstairs at the Elbo Room from 8:00-9:15pm. I will be playing many songs from my 180 song catalog along with a couple new covers. We will be taking a trip down memory lane. Get up close, have some drinks, meet some old friends and enjoy yourselves! I hope you can all make it. This time there is no smoke and lights and a huge production like many of my past shows. This will allow you to enjoy a different side of my live performance. I am grateful to my family, friends and the Elbo Room for having me back after so many shows!!! 5 dollars at the door.
