December 18th, DAVE and George - We finished up a song we started working on up in Cashiers. It's called "Don't Stare At The Sun".  I like it. I threw out a couple more ideas (an instrumental right now) and "I'm Missing My Old Friend".  I can't wait to see what George comes up with.

December 19th, DAVE at The Corner Bar - The joint was hoppin'! Rob Peck and a bunch of his crew showed up. Also George Reeves made it by. Kruz did a nice set. Everyone sounded good!

December 20th, NorthStar at Mellow Mushroom - It was great to be back with the boys! Brady was out of town so NorhtStar was (Dave, Ed, Frankie and George). We also had Rob Peck and Ron Norris as guests. Thanks Matt and crew you guys are the best!

I miss Penny Lane.  It's been a week since she passed! I would like to remind every pet owner that our vet said to stay away from TRIFEXIS.  It might be the cause of many pets deaths. He suggested (Heart Guard). I hope to be in the studio this week with George Reeves cutting our new song "Don't Stare At The Sun" and maybe re-singing a couple of tracks on my new CD "Mr. Song To Evil People". Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking. Keepin' It Real!!!!!!!!    -David

March 6th, NorthStar at Captain Stans - It was suppose to be a Hurricane Grill and Wings date but Abe and Gregg let me head up to Georgia. This is normally Ed's gig as a solo but Stan wanted us both there, so we worked it out. Turned out to be a cold, fun night especially when I looked out in the audience right before we started and saw Brady Green. The three of us played together for the night. It was a blast. There was some press there. I think they enjoyed it. Once again a great time behind the magic fence!

March 7th, Dave at Eclipse - It was a little bit more work than I thought to lay down "I Took Off Like A Rocket". A new song I just wrote. Only about four more songs then I will start bringing in players to fill out the tracks!

March 8th, Dave at SeaJays - The begining of a long weekend and I got sick while I was setting up. Made it through the gig barely. Suffered that whole night and all the next day until I was standing on stage to play with Ed at our NorthStar show.

March 9th, NorthStar at the Americana Blues Festival - Everything bad went away. I was so relieved. I was proud to be a part of this festival that Ed and many other people put together each year. We are Americana (NorthStar) and I was proud to play the music we wrote for the folks that attended. Looking forward to next year!

It was a great weekend even though I was sick. It was great to hear all the acts at the festival (MoJo Bone, Cash Cow featuring Lil' Frank, Wharfratz and Sue Palmer and Her Motel Swing Orchestra). I am looking forward to being in the studio with The Big Lonesome this week. We should have a song on Reverbnation from our upcoming CD soon. I will also be in the studio doing more work on my next solo effort "Mr Song To Evil People". Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking. "Keepin' it Real!" -David
