In light of my wife's father passing, all shows are cancelled this week (May 15-16). I would like to extend a very appreciative Thank You to Open Bar and The Brown Pelican for being so understanding and kind.
Okay, a lot has happened and is happening and will continue to happen. So where do I start? Okay, some rough spots: Some of you know that my wife's father is having some major health problems, we are back and forth from NC to PA quite a bit for that and then my NC drummer Patrick Edward's son underwent some very serious surgery a few weeks ago. My father-in-law's situation remains much the same, but there is very good news about Patrick's son. His surgery went really well and he is back home. I visited him a day ago and I can't believe how well he is doing! He's an awesome kid, one of my favorites and it's great to see him smiling and laughing.
Shows have been going really well and are very well received. I am getting a lot of interest in an album dedicated to all the murder/dark songs. I'm not sure if that is a solid choice or not..... Huge thanks to Christian at Southern Hops, Charlie at Dante's and Tony at Mugg's for the shows and the great times!
As was stated before, if you would like a CD of The Lumen Sessions, email me your mailing address and I'll get one to you. They are $10 and I send a return envelope along with the CD. So easy.
Shows are all over the place this month, we are going to be busy..... Hope to see you all! Cheers!
I'm looking forward to another two weeks of shows and seeing everyone! There is a change that I am trying to get out to everyone, Bourbon Bar and Grill in Hanover, PA is rescheduling the show for a later date on a Friday or Saturday. So, if you were planning on coming out to that one, plan something different. Like maybe taking me out for pizza and beer. Just a thought.....
Big Thank You to Bear Town Market and The Brown Pelican for the shows! It's great to have some local venues and get home at a decent hour.... hahaha.
This week we are in Richmond, VA at Poe's Pub on Friday and then we will be playing back at the Satellite Bar and Lounge in Wilmington, NC on Saturday. Check out the Shows page for all the details!
The Lumen Sessions CD's are now available at live shows for $10. If you would like one mailed to you, message me your address and I'll send one to you with a return envelope. Thanks!!!
We (as in any drummer I can convince to play with me and myself) have a few real nice shows this month, be sure to check out the Shows page for all of them. We are in NC and VA at some new places and some that we've played before. It's been a good year so far for live shows, I'd love to see you out to one (or more!).
In other news, I will have cd's for sale at live shows. Ryan and I recorded two bonus songs that are only available on the cd, "Front Porch Swing" and "Reminders Of A Saturday Night". If you would like a cd mailed to you, please send me a message from my Contact page and I will get back with you. Thanks for your support!
I wanted to say a huge Thank You to the Arendell Room in Morehead City, NC and Trent River Coffee Co. in New Bern, NC for the shows this weekend! Both places were awesome, good crowd and great feedback. I really appreciate all the venues that I play at, I know it's not easy to run a venue/bar/cafe, but thank you for having us! This weekend we are at the Open Bar in Washington, NC and then in Wilmington for a private party. Cheers!
Got some great shows this month, really looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones! I'm going to be in Morehead City, New Bern, Washington and Wilmington, NC, hope to see you!
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday. Try to remember to relax, the time goes so quickly. Let's meet up soon!
Had a blast at the Satellite Bar and Lounge in Wilmington, NC last night! Great venue and staff, awesome people to play a show with! We'll be back... (and next time I'll let the staff close up..... Sorry!!! I really am!)
Christmas eve I'll be playing a few Christmas songs at the Methodist church in Trenton, NC for their service. Feel free to stop in.
Well, I was planning to start back playing a little in January, finish The Lumen Sessions and release it on cd, but I jumped the gun a little and booked a show in December. The Satellite Bar is an amazing venue in Wilmington, NC, I am really pumped to be playing. I have a new drummer here in NC, Patrick Edwards, and we are looking forward to playing our first show there! Get there at 9:00 and we'll be ready to make noise! Also, be on the lookout for new things shaking! Scarlet said the other day, "Dad, when are you playing a show again? I want to come along and sell cd's......" Cheers folks!
