March 6th, DAVE at JT's Seafood Shack - The first time in a long time for me at this great place. They've really made some changes. The food was always great, still is. I had a great time. I talked to Johnny about moving the singles a little closer to the bar. What ever he decides, I am glad to be playing at this venue. I'll see you April 3rd, same time, same station.

March 7th, George's House - We threw around a couple of ideas on our new Cival War song.

March 7th, DAVE at Chianti Room - A nice afternoon out on the porch. There was a full house. I wasn't feeling very well but the crowd brought me out of it. Happy Birthday Dede! A big thanks to the wonderful people and staff here at the Chianti Room. See you in a few weeks.

March 8th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - George showed up to play with me tonight. Laurence was back home in Canada for a week. We had a blast, as always, and did all the songs we have written together except "Secondary Dominance". What fun!!!

March 9th, DAVE at Corner Bar - It was George and I tonight. Laurence is still in Canada and Brady stayed home sick. Between the two of us we got'er done. Enjoyed the evening!

March 10th, 11th and 12th, DAVE ar The Big Deck Raw Bar - It's always a great feeling headed for the Gulf Coast. We stopped to pick up some fresh eggs and grabbed some lunch and in about three hours we made it. The weather was great the whole weekend. Visited with Pat, Pete, Missy and her sisters, Trainwreck John and Rick McMurray from "Yoko Says No". What a great mix of folks to hang out with. As always Darlene, Bryan and staff were the best! We are looking forward to our trip back in April 14th, 15th and 16th. Come check out this great venue and pretty little town out. It's a nice time.

Rick, John, Darlene and David Watt Besley
I'm looking forward to getting together with Barry on Wednesday at Cave Canem Studios and doing some writing with George and who ever shows upon our Tuesday Writing Day! Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Smile it could brighten someones day, even your own! Early detection can save your life! Listen to "Change The World" and "Living in My Head" on YouTube. Also listen to my music on Spotify. I was sorry to hear that we lost Evan Johns. I did not know him well but saw him perform at Desperado's a few times. He was a real showman and talent. Keepin' It Real! -David

see you down the road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

March 1st, Cave Canem Studios - Laurence was in cutting tracks on "Poor-dum" and "A Better place". It's lots of fun recording and hanging with Barry and Laurence.

March 1st, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - The "fiddler" was out on the sidewalk with me tonight. Great crowd! Great time! Thanks Abe, JJ and staff!

March 2nd, DAVE at Corner Bar - The whole crew was here with me tonight, Brady, George and Laurence. I'm a lucky guy to be able to share the stage with these three guys.

March 3rd, 4th and 5th - Aunt Kate's - I had a great weekend on the porch by the water. Friday night I played for a private event. It was a wedding rehearsal, pretty uneventful but I think they had a good time. Saturday was the 13th Annual Bob Conroy Charity Tournament. I have been lucky to book myself the same time as this event for the last couple years. Sunday just a fun day!

I'm going to put a call into Barry to see if he's in town this week to get into Cave Canem Studios. I know Dan's been busy, but we hope to get moving on "Goodbye Goodbye", our next video at IAUGI Studios. I'm also going to stop by George's to see if we can move farther along on our new Civil War tune as yet, un-named. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter!
