Wednesday, 4/27 "JUST DAVE" @ Capt. Stan's - Ed was still up in Virginia so I did this gig solo. It was fun, but I missed Ed though. We'll be playing at the Gamble Fest on Sunday, hope to see everyone there.
Thursday, 4/28 "JUST DAVE" @ The Corner Bar - It was great to be back in town at The Corner Bar and playing for my friends. I heard Darryl Wise played in my place last week, I'd have loved to see him! It's going to be a busy week! I'm ready! Thanks Mike, Nick and staff!
Friday, 4/29 "JUST DAVE" @ SeaJay's - Turned out to be a great night! The "no-see'ems" were out a little bit. I was thinking that my big yelllow fan is going to come in handy for a couple of reasons as summer approaches. Thanks Tommy and staff!
Saturday, 4/30 AM "JUST DAVE" @ The Gamble Rogers Folk Festival - I did a solo show on the Arrivas Stage. I was a little tired but after the first song "Upside Down", I found my groove. I had a great time. Thanks Tommy for the sound. The most people I've ever played for before at the festival.
PM "JUST DAVE" @ SeaJay's - Got setup and got going again. It was a nice crowd, met a lot of new folks. Really enjoyed myself. Thanks Tommy and staff! After loading out, I thought I would go hear my partner Ed (Wharfratz) at Latitudes, but changed my mind (I'm glad). It's going to be another early show tomorrow.
Sunday, 5/1 AM "NORTHSTAR @ The Gamble Rogers Folk Festival - NorthStar was the first act on the Demesa Stage. The sound system was being run by Jim Stafford and partners. There wasn't as many people for our show as I had the day before, but it was still a blast. Jim, Gary and Tom, that was the best system I've played through that I can ever remember in all my years. Great job guys! Great job Ed! Saw some great ole friends (musicians). Hope to be a part of this event next year. Thanks Bob Patterson.
PM "JUST DAVE" @ Zachry's - I got back to Georgia about 4pm after leaving the Gamble Fest and going to visit Jim Dunaway at the rehab center. I set up and had a good night, not real crowded but the owners and a few folks had a good time I hope. I like this place! Thanks Barbara, DJ and staff!
Monday 5/2 "JUST DAVE" at doctor's appointment - My yearly physical produced a clean bill of health. Still need to lose weight, but my blood pressure has gone down since the end of September. The change saved my life!
Had a busy long week, but what a blast! Maybe I'll do something like this again in the future. I think we have a pretty good run coming up in Virginia sometime soon. I made a lot of new friends this week. I got to touch bases with a lot of musician friends I haven't seen in awhile. Taking a few needed days off. I will be back at it Thursday. Thanks for letting me live my dream. "Keepin' It Real -David
see you down the road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
