September 6th, OFF - Everyone's preparing for Hurricane Irma.

September 7th, Corner Bar - Brady was looking for somewhere to run from Hurricane Irma and Frankie could not find a gas station with any gas. I played the gig by myself. I had a great time!

September 8th, 9th and 10th, DAVE at the Big Deck Bar - Darlene called Friday morning and said it might be a good idea if we stayed put in St. Augustine. I love playing this gig but I did agree it might be to dangerous. See you October 6th, 7th and 8th.

September 11th thru 17th - All performances canceled due to Hurricane Irma.

September 18th, Songwriter's Night at the Corner Bar - What a great night! We missed Levi and Fester. They called and  and want to book a make-up day in the near future. Katherine Archer and Doug Spears were able to make it. We had a packed night and both of our writers were great! I enjoyed getting a chance to shoot the shit with both of these great artists. Bob you are always special!

September 19th, OFF - Chianti Room was closed for repairs see you October 3rd!

September 20th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - I had the great Laurence Stevenson with me tonight.  Unfortunately they had some hurricane damage at their place, not as bad as Matthew but bad enough. It was great to play with my friend though and good to see Barbara!

September 21st, DAVE at the Corner Bar - What a night! It was Laurence, Brady and Frankie with me tonight. I am so proud to play with these great players! Laurence and I discussed my next trip to Canada. I will keep you posted.

September 22nd, DAVE at Conch House - A little slow and a little rain.

September 23rd, DAVE at Zaharia's - Now that's what I'm talking about. The place was packed! I had such a great time! Thanks Angelika and staff you guys are the best!

September 24th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - I had a nice Sunday evening out on the porch! Thanks Brian and staff!

It's been a crazy month and it's almost over. Hurricane Irma made quite the punch. We were very lucky. We lost power for several days, a few large trees came down and lots and lots of clean up. My heart goes out for the folks that suffered much more than we did. Theresa and I would like to thank Julie, the Bagan's and our neighbor Jen for everything you did to make life a little better. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Smile it might brighten someone's day, even your own! Early detection can save your life! Keep'in It Real! -David

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

August 28th  - OFF

August 29th, DAVE at the Chianti Room - It was a nice afternoon out on the porch. I had a little trouble with my guitar pickups. I did a quick fix that actually worked. That rarely happens with me and my fix-its. I took it to Scott Sweet the next day and he said it was fine. Every dog has his day, I guess that repair was my lucky day, Ruff! Ruff!

August 30th, Travel Day - We were on the road by 1pm, right on time with everything going smoothly so far. It was a nice trip to Virginia. We made it in about 11 1/2 hours. I got a little tired after getting off 295 in Virginia, but recovered in about 20 minutes. I drove the whole way. I suffered a little the next day but at least Theresa could rest a little. She still had to drive to see her family on Friday.

August 31st - September 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th - My weekend to play the Coles Point Tavern is always a good time. There are some great people that hang there. I really enjoy their company. I saw my first coyote and a grey fox on one of my morning walks, also several eagles. The five gigs I played went great. I can't wait to get back in October. I would like to thank Matt, Randy, Mike and Sandra and Steve and Selisa (or breakfast), my Dad, Cecil, Ed, Uncle Charley and Debbie, Creeky, Richard and Barb, Joel and Cindy, and most of all Chris and Ann. Thanks for letting me play and thanks for taking such good care of us. I enjoyed hanging out for a little bit after the weekend. I look forward to our next trip your way. God Bless the Tavern Nation!

September 5th, Travel Day - We started home around 3am. We arrived home about 2:30 pm. It was a  pleasant trip after we getting a little turned around in Montrose but that always happens at three in the morning. It's good to be home!

A great trip to Virginia as always.  We are worried about Hurricane Irma. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Early detection can save your life! Smile it could brighten someone's day, even your own! Check out my video's on YouTube and listen to my music on Spotify! Keepin' It Real! -David

August 21st, Songwriters Night at the Corner Bar - What a night! Lee Michael Howard, Lou Rubino and Randy Brantley really put on a show. Bob would have been proud. I feel so honored to share the stage with these great writers every month. Thank you for supporting original music in St. Augustine. See you next month, September 18th!

August 22nd - OFF

August 23rd, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - It was pretty darn hot but the show went on. I had a chance to hang with my friend Brian (Aunt Kate's). A little breeze came through that made the evening a lot nicer. Lucas Ryan sat in and did a few songs. He's a very talented young man from Texas. I hope he does well in the business. It looks like he's got good folks around him. Thanks Abe, JJ and staff, you guys are the best. See you in two weeks!

August 24th,  DAVE at the Corner Bar - Frankie Urzetta shared the stage with me tonight. There's never a dull moment with this great musician. See you guys in a couple of weeks! Thanks Pat, Jen and staff!

August 25th and 26th - OFF

August 27th, DAVE at Creekside - Frankie Urzetta joined me again tonight. The weather was threatening so we set up inside. We got rained in. Playing inside the bar area can be real fun sometimes and tonight was one of those nights. Thanks to Judy, Terry and the wonderful staff.  See you guys September 11th with NorthStar.

I had a few days off! It felt pretty good. I had the chance to see the Free Range Chickens at Creekside. I got some mowing done. I started on another song idea, and finished a couple books. It's been a good week. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Early detection can save your life! Smile it could brighten someones day, even your own!

August 14th, NORTHSTAR at Creekside - We decided to set up inside because the weather looked threatening. It never rained, go figure. We still had a nice crowd. Frankie was still a little under the weather so he was unable to make the gig. We missed him! Eddie, Brady and myself carried the torch. We also had a little help from Dr. Bill on Mandolin. He sounded great. Thanks for supporting NorthStar's music! We also had a visit from Steve Beck!

August 15th, DAVE at Chianti Room - Hot! Hot! Hot! I survived and actually met some nice folks. Come check out the best happy hour in town!

August 16th, DAVE at Cave Canem Studios - I met with Barry.  He has been real busy with .38 Special so we haven't had a chance to get together. It was nice to catch up on current events and work a little on "Poor-Dum". Due to Barry's schedule we will probably really buckle down in November and December. I'm sure there will be a few dates in between.

August 16th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - A nice evening out on the porch. There wasn't any rain for a change.  Thanks Abe, JJ and staff, you guys are the best.

August 17th, DAVE at Corner Bar - The Trio of Besley, Green and Urzetta was back together this evening. I am really stating to like the sound we are getting. I am very lucky to share the stage with these two!

August 18th, DAVE at Conch House - It wasn't as hot as last month, actually, it was a pretty nice evening. I saw my friend Woody Pernell for a second. He was playing out on the pier. I am cutting back on the number of times I am playing the Conch House. It's not because I don't like it, I just have to many other commitments. See you September 22nd!

August 19th, DAVE at Zaharia's - It was a wonderful evening. It was good to see Greg and Lisa and all my other friends that showed up. Angelika and staff are the best. We stopped by Julie's on the way home for a couple of beers and a jump in the pool. We never got in the pool. Theresa and I hung around a bit to talk with with Jack and Julie for a while and then headed home.

August 20th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - It was a nice afternoon on the porch. I had a nice crowd and a special person in the crowd, Tony Scozzaro. What a nice guy. He's a great player too. Also had the chance to hang out a bit with Chip  Kirk and Tom Burns. They played the early shift.

I had a wonderful week. It was hot though! It was fun un to hang out with Barry. I'm looking forward to getting together with Dan Bagan at IAUGI Studios to work on the next video. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't litter! Early detection can save your life! Smile it could brighten someones day, even your own!
