October 16th, Songwriter's Night at The Corner Bar - I was able to get a little rest after the Virginia trip before I repacked the truck and headed for the monthly Songwriter's Night at the Corner Bar. This month we were lucky enough to have Michael Lagasse and Todd Jones. Both of these guys are great talents and good guys. The work they do together is defiantly worth giving a listen. It's always good to see and play with my old friend Bob. I am so lucky to be a part of this event every month. We will be posting our next artists for November 20th soon.
October 17th, DAVE at Chianti Room - I spent a nice evening on the porch. There was a nice breeze, no rain and some great folks that came out. It dosen't get much better than this.
October 18th, Travel Day - On the road again, we are headed up to see our friends George and Deborah Reeves and to play a little music and maybe write some. We left about 11:30 am and arrived about 8:30 pm. We made good time. It's time to hit the sack!
October 19th, DAVE and George at JJ's Canteen and Eatery - There was nobody in there until just before starting time. We were a little nervous. Like it does so many other times, it turned out great! This is one of the coolest places. If you're ever in Glenville NC, you must check it out. We had a nice meal and a nice time playing. Thanks Joel, and staff you guys are the bomb! We also started on a new tune earlier today (no title yet). Also would like to recognize Jon Zachary a local singer-songwriter, thanks for stopping by.
October 20th , Mica's - DAVE and George - After a nice quiet and peaceful day, a great breakfast and lunch (thanks Deborah). We worked on our new song a little. We mostly bullshitted about what's been going on with the both of us. I think we came up with some chorus chords. We hopped in the van and headed for Mica's. This was an outside gig and there was a chill in the air. We offered up our heater that was offered to us to the audience keep warm. We thought we would soon be on fire. We had a great time and finished the gig just before it got to cold. Then headed back up the mountain.
October 21st, JJ's Canteen and Eatery - Songwriter's Night - This is a new event for JJ's. Normally, they are closed on Saturday. This will be our 2nd Songwriter's Night at this venue. The first was great! George and I were going to be joined by Isaiah Breedlove and Goeff McBride. Isaiah called that afternoon and said he had some family issues and would not be able to make it. We were bummed but the show must go on. I hope everything turned out okay for Isaiah. Geoff arrived with family in tow and ready to go to work. We sound checked, had dinner, then it was show time. George was working triple duty backing both Geoff and I up and doing his own music. He did a great job on all fronts. Geoff McBride was a real treat (2nd season of The Voice). What a voice he had, wow. George and Deborah had been talking about him before I met him. What a nice guy and what a talent! It's really my favorite time in music when three guys can get together and make music on their own and together. We had some real moments during our two plus hour show. I was smiling from ear to ear. Thanks Geoff it was a pleasure and I hope we get a chance to write some and play together in the future. You are the real deal.
October 22nd, Travel Day - We left Yellow Mountain about 6:30 am. It was our regular ride home until we talked with the Dunaway's. Barry had played a show with .38 Special the night before in Richmond Hill. We knew they were headed for George and Deborah's for a couple days before Barry had to fly out and catch back up with his band. We decided to meet at Duke's Barbecue off exit 22 in SC and it turned out to be a good choice. It was fun to catch up with our friends and have a good lunch. We said our goodbyes and headed out in different directions. We arrived home by dinnertime.
A perfect weekend all good memories. Theresa was a little under the weather the whole time but was a real trooper. I couldn't have done it without her. 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 my music on Spotify and check out my videos on YouTube. Keep'in It Real! - David
