January 16th, St. Augustine Songwriters at the Corner Bar - Liz and Lon Williamson were our guests tonight. What a treat, these two know how to put on a show. Bob, as always, had at least one tune I've not heard over the last couple years. I also tried to play two of my songs at the same time, doesn't work that well. Overall maybe one of the best writers nights yet, although, there has never been a bad one. Bob and I are looking forward to next month. We should have the artists posted soon. Thanks Jamie Defrates, Susan Brown, Slim, and Laurence Stevenson for supporting our special night!

January 17th,  George's - I did some writing with George and Laurence. We're throwing a lot of ideas around. Thats how it starts.

January 17th, DAVE at the Chianti Room - It was a wonderful afternoon on the porch. The weather was beautiful, nice crowd. Stop by and check out the best happy hour in town!

January 18th, DAVE at Cave Canem Studios - I spent some time with my friend Barry. We listened to his work on "Poor-dum". Things are starting to roll a little bit and thats exciting. I'm planning to have Laurence Stevenson in the studio with us next week working on "Ain't Life Grand" and "A Better Place". Other than spending time working on this project, I also enjoy just shooting the shit with Barry, Lydia and whoever else stops by.

January 18th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - It's always a great night out on the sidewalk and tonight  with my friend Laurence Stevenson was not exception. The place was packed, the weather was nice, the beer was flowing and we played a lot of original music. It doesn't get much better than this!

January 19th, DAVE at IAUGI Studios - We have almost completed my new video "Livin' In My Head". Dan has done a great job on it. I can't wait for everyone to see it!

January 19th, DAVE at the Corner Bar - Once again had my pals, George, Brady and Laurence share the stage with me. I had a blast. You should check it out sometime.

January 20th, DAVE at the Conch House - The night out on the deck was beautiful. I had a nice crowd and met some new folks. Thanks Julie see you next month! I made a stop on my way home at Mellow Mushroom to talk with brother Ed. It's always good to hang with family even if it's just for a short time.

I hope Dan at IAUGI Studios and I finish the video. I'm going to give Barry at Cave Canem Studios a call to see if we are on for this week. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Smile it might brighten someones day, even your own! Early detection can save your life! DirecTV sucks. Check out my music on Spotify!

January 10th, DAVE at George's Place - It was our first songwriting meeting this year George, Laurence and I.  I look forward to more of this. We started on "The Ballad Of A Broken Mind". I talked with Barry too. He's done some more work on "Poor-Dum". I can't wait to hear what he's done.

January 10th, DAVE at Oasis - Laurence Stevenson joined me tonight. It was kind of sad playing at this venue after all that's happened. It's not the same without Greg and Splash. It was good to see Hoover and Kevin though and it was nice to be back in the land of the 44 TVs.

January 11th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - It turned out to be a nice night out on the sidewalk. Gentleman George Reeves was with me tonight. Thanks Abe, JJ and staff, you guys are the best. See you next Wednesday!

January 12th, DAVE at Corner Bar - The whole gang with me tonight, Brady, George and Laurence. It's always a good time with this talented group.

January 13th, 14th and 15th, DAVE at the Big Deck Bar and Grill - Theresa and I showed up on Friday evening and had a great dinner at Bryan and Darlene's.  We tried white sweet potatoes! We all went by and saw the fabulous Kerry Gordon at the Carlin's and Johnny Lobo at the Big Deck Bar. It was fun. Both Saturday and Sunday were a blast as well. It's always a good time on Cedar Key, it give us a chance to see our friends Pete Frizzell, Pat and Raven. I will be back February 10th, 11th and 12th.

It was a good but sad week.  We said goodbye to our friend Splash who is in God's hands now. I couldn't be there but Brady said it was a fine send-off. Rest in peace my friend. I talked to Barry Dunaway at Cave Canem Studios on Monday and we are going to get together Wednesday. Looking forward to our Tuesday writing day at the Reeves'. I'm also getting together with Dan Bagan at IAUGI Studios on Thursday. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter!

January 3rd, DAVE at Chianti Room - It was a beautiful afternoon on the porch. My voice is still hurting but is showing signs of recovery. Thanks for putting up with me while I struggle through this roadblock.

January 4th, DAVE at Cave Canem Studios - Barry, Woody and I did some work today. I'm excited that Barry's schedule has slowed down a bit so he can spend some time with me on our new project "Don't Stare at the Sun". Woody, Barry and I had some laughs, got caught up on things, took some photo's, had some coffee, made some plans,  help carry Woody's equipment, chatted with Lydia's physical therapist, talked cars with Chris Stevens and got some great tracks from Woody on "Poor-Dum". I was smiling driving down the road! Can't wait to do it again! Thanks Barry and Woody!

January 4th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Laurence Stevenson was with me tonight on the sidewalk. We had a blast, the voice is coming back a little each day. Steve Beck and George Reeves stopped by. I played a new song "But We Won't" got  thumbs up from Hoagy and Susy!

January 5th, DAVE at Corner Bar - George, Brady and Laurence were with me tonight. Great crowd, great time! We would like to thank Duffy Bishop for sitting in! Hope to get her and Chris on one of our songwriter nights!

January 6th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - I had a nice evening inside. I was an honor to meet Lamar Braxton who played in The Legends with Grahn Parsons and Jim Stafford. A very nice man. I want him to meet David Griffen.

January 7th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - It was really cold! I set up inside and played for about an hour. Later we went downtown and stopped by Chianti Room, Prohibition Kitchen to check out the place and to see the Duffy Bishop Trio. We stopped in St. Georges Tavern to see my nephew Dylan and his wife Jessica, we just missed brother Will. Then went out to Hoptingers and caught a few minutes of Brent Byrd and the Suitcase Gypsies. I enjoyed hanging out with Julie and Jack. Good to see Rusty Springfield, George Reeves and Laurence Stevenson.

January 8th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - It was another cold evening, I was inside. There were only a few people but I had a great time playing for them. Come and check this place out, great food, great people, great view!

Looking forward to writing on Tuesday's at George's. I hope to talk to Barry and Dan about scheduling our projects. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking!

December 28th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - I had a big night on the sidewalk. The place was packed. I'm looking forward to 2017 at this great place!

December 29th, DAVE at Corner Bar - I sang great Wednesday at Hurricane Grill, then woke up Thursday and my voice was gone. I somehow made it through the evening (which was packed) with the help of George Reeves and Brady Green. My father was down. It's always good to have him helping put the song list for the evening together. Thanks to all the folks that come down every Thursday.  And thanks to my friends George and Brady (soon we'll be adding Laurence Stevenson to the list) for coming out every Thursday to make some music!

December 30th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - It was the worst night performing in recent memories. My voice was totally gone, could not sing at all and played and sang for two hours before throwing in the towel. Thanks for putting up with me Aunt Kate's. I will make it up to you in the future. Home to bed is all I can manage.

December 31st, NorthStar at Wee Pub - Well, after a nights rest, my voice felt a little better. We checked into our room on Jekyll Island and I rested some more. We went to set up about 7pm and the place was packed. We had to wait until 8pm or so to set up. We started around 9:30. Eddie, Brady, Laurence and I had a blast! I took in the New Year with not all, but a lot of the people I care about. Thanks Eddie, Kristen and the Wee Pub for having us and taking such good care of us too. Good food Rhett!

Looking forward to 2017! I was so sorry to hear about my friend Splash passing away. He took good care of me (booking) for years at the Oasis. He was a great guy, always a friend. He will be missed! My heart goes out to Judy and her family. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Smile it could change someones day, even your own! Early detection can save your life! Please listen to my music on Spotify!  And DirecTV SUCKS! Keepin It Real! -David
