I missed them but had a blast playing music at their place. Tom (Bryan's dad) and staff took great care of us. It's always good to see Pat and Pete. It was nice to meet Brett Banks. He seemed like a great guy, wish we could have chatted some more.

I talked with Barry today, we are planning to get together on Wednesday to start back on our project "Don't Stare At The Sun". I was sorry to hear about Duke's passing. We will also be at The Bagan's House Party (Frankie, Brady and I). We will be shooting some footage for my new video "Goodbye, Goodbye". Thanks for letting me live my dream!

May 3rd - A Day OFF

May 2nd, DAVE at Chianti Room - A beautiful afternoon not to hot, nice breeze. It started out with one person and ended up with an almost full porch. My friend Michael Howard and his wife Joyce stopped by. Come check out the best happy hour in town! See you in two weeks!

May 3rd - DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Laurence Stevenson was with me on the sidewalk tonight. As always, a great time. It was Laurence's last gig at Hurricane Grill and Wings for a while. I will miss him. Thanks Abe, JJ and staff, you guys are the best!

May 4th, DAVE at Corner Bar - Brady Green and Laurence Stevenson joined me this evening. It was Laurence's last night.  He will be missed. I had a good time. I'm looking forward to working with Frankie Urzetta and Brady next week.

May 5th and 6th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - I played in the wind. I had to choose to set up inside or outside. There were a few people outside so I headed into the wind. I figured as long as the customers could eat and drink out there, I could surely perform. I'm surprised my speakers didn't blow down. I made it through somehow.

May 7th, DAVE at The Gamble Rodger's Music Festival - Brady, Laurence and I met a little early and headed for the festival grounds so that we had a chance to hang out a bit. We had a chance to catch up  with other musicians we haven't seen in a while, and also met some new ones. Our show was one of the best I've played yet. Great job Brady and Laurence (this is really Laurence's last gig in town, I swear). Thanks Bob Paterson and everyone else involved with this great event!

May 7th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - Back for my last evening this weekend. The weather couldn't have been better. There was a world of difference. Great crowd, great time! Thanks Brian, Dave and staff, you guys are the best!

I'm getting together with Dan Bagan at IAUGI Studios. We're going to get started on our next project, "Goodbye, Goodbye", a new video. Thanks for letting me live my dream!

April 17th, Songwriters Night at the Corner Bar - Another great evening. Clyde Walker and The Skinny (Taylor and Pamela Fausset) sounded wonderful.

I'm looking forward to next month which will be held on May 15th.

April 18th - Off

April 19th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Laurence was under the weather so George stepped in. It was George's last night in town for a while I look forward to seeing George in his neck of the woods at the end of June in Cashiers. I have always enjoyed sharing the stage with George.  He's one hell of performer and I can't wait for his return in October. Ron Norris stopped by and played a few of his tunes with George. Thanks Abe, JJ and staff, you guys are the best!

April 10th, NORTHSTAR at Creekside - It was the whole gang tonight, Brother Ed, Brady, George, Frankie, Laurence and I. It's a pain in the ass for me to set up sound for this many players.  Even with all the headaches, it's more than worth it. This is a chance each month to hang out and play with some of my favorite players. George and Laurence will be headed back to their homes.  As I'm typing, I realize it will be their last NorthStar gig for a while.  You both will  be missed. Brady, Eddie, Frankie and I will hold down the fort until you return. Thanks Creekside for allowing us to get together each month!

April 11th, DAVE at Oasis - All is well in the land of the 44 TVs. I miss Greg and Splash though.

April 12th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Laurence Stevenson joined in with me tonight. We had a nice crowd. Beautiful evening on the sidewalk. Thanks Abe, JJ and staff, see you next week!

April 13th, DAVE at Corner Bar - It was a trio tonight,  George Reeves and Laurence Stevenson and I. Brady was out of town. We had a great crowd and were visited by Duffy and ? from the Duffy Bishop Band. This was George's last Thursday night for a while. If you missed him he will be playing a set with Laurence and I on Wednesday at Hurricane Grill and Wings. Lets give him a good send off!

April 14th , 15th  and 16th, DAVE at the Big Deck Raw Bar - It's always a great time at this special venue. This is a gig I always look forward to. Bryan and Darlene and Darlene's Mother made us a great Shepard's Pie before leaving for the gig. I had nice crowds each day. It's good to see my friends Pete and Pat on a monthly basis. It was good to see my friends from "Museum of Oddities" (Bruce and John). I'm looking forward to next month already.

I hope to get some movement on my new Video and CD. I've been very bust this month.  I'm over halfway through a 23 day run and feeling good. Thanks for letting me live my dream!

April 3rd, DAVE at JT's Seafood Shack - What a great evening until the rain came. It was one hell of a ride home. Thanks everyone at JT's you are the best. See you next month on May 1st.

April 4th, DAVE at Chianti Room - It was a nasty looking day, cloudy and rain. I looked towards downtown on my way to the gig and the sky was as blue as can be. I had a wonderful afternoon out on the porch.

April 5th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Laurence and his fiddle showed up to play with me this evening on the sidewalk. I always look forward to my Wednesdays. Great job as always Laurence!

April 6th, DAVE at Corner Bar - George Reeves, Brady Green and Laurence Stevenson all shared the stage with me tonight. It's always a pleasure to play with these guys.  I am sure going to miss George and Laurence when they head back home. I along with Brady will try to keep the fires burning until they return.

April 7th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - It is the first of three gigs in a row. It was windy and chilly but I set up outside anyway.  I figured if the folks were out there eating I sure could be playing. I'm glad I did. It got a little cold near the end but was a wonderful evening overall.

April 8th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - Laurence Stevenson was with me this afternoon out on the porch. A beautiful afternoon!

April 9th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - A nice breeze, a deck full of people, some great food, a beer or three makes for yet another great gig! Thanks for sitting in Lindsey Lynink you have a wonderful voice! Thanks Brian, Candy, Dave and staff, you guys are the best!

We've been doing a lot of work around the house. Theresa says she's happy, that makes me happy. It's been a great week, 14 more gigs to go before a break, and I feel fine. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Smile it could brighten someones day, even your own!

March 20th, Songwriters Night at Corner Bar - We had a special guest Shawna Caspi from Canada. A real pleasure listening to her performance. Hopefully we will be getting together in her country when I'm up her way in July. Amy Hendrickson was under the weather so George Reeves stepped in and did a fine job. Amy we hope you feel better! Bob sounded great as always! I can't wait until next month, April 17th.

March 21st, Travel Day - Theresa and I  started out about 4 am Tuesday morning. We are headed for the Astor Crown Plaza in New Orleans. Barry, Darlene and Eddie have all given us tips on where to eat. We didn't get to all of them. The drive was uneventful. We arrived in New Orleans about 2 pm. I was surprised the city is very easy to get in and out of. After check in, our first stop was Acme Oyster House for oysters and beer. Then we took a walk up Bourbon Street. I wanted to show Theresa all the places I've played and hung out in over the years (Tropical Isle, Toulouse Cabaret). After stopping in Absinthe for a beer we decided to head back to the room, end of day one in Nola.

March 22nd, Travel Day - The next morning started with beignets and coffee at Cafe du Monde. Then more site seeing around the town.
We checked out of the hotel about 11am and I stopped at Central Grocery for Muffalettas while Theresa walked around the French Market. Now we're off to Houston, Texas. The drive went fine until we were about 30 miles out. One wrong turn in the middle of rush hour and all hell broke loose! Adam and Katie had cooked dinner for us and I was starting to think we might need to stop at the nearest bar and wait for the rush hour to end. Thank God my co-pilot kept us going. We made it about 7pm. We had a wonderful Mexican style dinner, a few drinks, then off to bed.

March 23rd, DAVE at Locatelli's/Magnolia - My first night playing, there was a nice crowd. Adam and Katie had us try some of amazing food from their menu. The room was pretty full and a nice couple sat down next to Adam and Katie. He looked like a player about my age. I pretty much did the same show I do every night in St. Augustine, just played to a bunch of folks that have never heard me. The couple asked if I did any originals and I said the last few were mine. He said "sounds a lot like Cat Stevens". I said I was a big fan of his. He said he was a bass player. I said I was to. He said he had a precision bass. I said I had one also. He asked if I knew any Spirit songs. I said I've played a few over the years, but did not know any at the moment. I then introduced him to Adam and Katie, and said "if you ever need a gig just talk to them, they are the owners". He said he pretty much was a studio player now. At that point I started feeling like he was having some fun with me. When he left he introduced himself and said he would like to keep in touch. Mark Andes was his name. Look him upon wikipedia.  This player has done it all, and is one of Barry's all time favorites. Barry is one of my all time favorites. I was stunned and still am. It was a great start for the weekend.



March 24th, DAVE at Locatelli's/Cypress - This was one of their newest restaurants, the place was packed. I met some great folks, and once again we had some great food. Day two was under our belts and a lot of fun!

March 25th, DAVE at Locatelli's/Cypress - After a walk and a few minutes by the pool we headed down the street to day 3's gig.  This is the original Locatelli's. I played here about 11 years ago for their 3rd anniversary party. I remember this one and had some friends from my old days in Virginia show up. A great crowd and once again some great food. Adam and Katie could not have been better hosts. I'm so happy we had a chance to hang with them and see how their hard work has payed off.

March 26th, DAVE at Locatelli's/Tombell - The last gig was an afternoon performance. I had a nice bunch of folks show up. Another nice meal. Theresa and I are going on a diet when we get home. Adam and Katie wanted to take us out to one of their favorite places in Houston for dinner, Cyclone Anaya's.  Also a place Billy Gibbons likes a lot. This was a great way to end a great long weekend! It's time to get back to the house and get some rest for the ride home tomorrow.


March 27th - After talking with Adam and Katie, we decided we would drive to Destin and stay the night. They also suggested The Harbor Dock as the place to eat. The drive was a little longer than we counted on but uneventful. The restaurant was great, we had sushi and shared grouper sandwich. I have learned something about eating on this trip.  It's kind of fun to share. After a late lunch we rode down to the beach. They are beautiful. We weren't really tired and the GPS said 5 1/2 hours to home, but it was more like 8 1/2. So we decided it would be nice to sleep in our own bed tonight. We made it back home about midnight. Hauled our luggage in the house and went to bed. What a great road trip can't wait to get back to Houston in September.

March 28th - Day Off

March 29th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - It's great to be back home! I did this one solo. Laurence and George were out of town. It was good to see everyone and looking forward to a busy month around town.

March 30th, DAVE at Corner Bar - The whole gang was here. I missed playing with my friends. The place was packed had a blast! Now 2 days off and then 22 in a row. See you out there somewhere!

March 31st and April 1st -  Off

April 2nd , DAVE at Aunt Kate's - It was a beautiful day. I made it to the gig with a chance to hang with my friend Michael Howard.  He was playing the early shift and sounded great. I had a great afternoon on the porch by the water. It was really good to see Dan and Mary Kane!


I met some great people on this trip. Adam and Katie were great hosts and couldn't of been any nicer. I can't wait to get back and see them in September. Thanks for letting me live my dream!
