Tuesday, 11/23 "Just Dave"@ The World Famous Oasis - This was a solo gig. I did a 3 1/2 hour set. Had a pretty good crowd. Looks like after next week it's going to be awhile before NorthStar or myself will be back at Oasis.

Wednesday, 11/24 NorthStar @ Captain Stan's - What a great night! We sure had a great crowd and Stan was really ON! This is a fun place to play. Looking forward to next week. We'd like to thank the guys from St. Simons Island for hanging out with us. Also thanks to Dad and Margie for stopping by. It's always good to see family.

Thursday, 11/25 Turkey Day - Spent the day with my wife and daughter and Jay. We had a wonderful dinner. Thanks Theresa. Hope everybody had a Happy Thanksgiving.

Friday, 11/26 "Just Dave" @ SeaJay's - Had a good night after a little PA problem. A little stressful at first but everything worked out. It's good to be back on the island.

Saturday, 11/27 Wharfratz @ SeaJay's - The first time for this combo. Jonathan is a nice guy (drummer and singer). We had some pretty special harmonies a few times. Overall a fun gig (would do this one again).

I hope to get some more work done on my CD this week. Looking forward to the Hacker's. No matter how much you worry about things, most of the time they just work themselves out. I've hung out with some special people (old and new). Looking forward to tomorrow and all that it will bring. Keepin' It Real -David

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

Sunday, November 21, Hurricane Patty's - Big Mike and Yvette had asked me to sing a song at their wedding party. I showed up to do that. When I got ready to start, I had Barry Dunaway (Those Guys), Chris and Dewey (Lickin Gravy), playing with me. Thanks guys that was a lot of fun!!! I hope to get out on a Sunday to see the "Lickin' Gravy" show.

Afterwards, Barry, Lydia, Jim, Theresa and myself headed over to Tom's for an oyster roast. It was fantastic, great food, great time!!!

Yet another great week. There were a lot of special moments I won't forget! Thanks everyone for helping me live my dream. Keepin' It Real -David

Tuesday, November 9, "Just Dave" @ Harry's - I played here for the first time only a week or so ago and had a pretty good time. I was at Harry's for the second time tonight and I had a blast! Diane and staff are great! I met a bunch of great people. Can't wait to get back to Harry's. Thanks Rob Peck!

Wednesday, November 10, NorthStar @ The World Famous Oasis - Eddie and I had a good gig. Not a lot of people, but everyone was into it, it seemed. Thanks for coming out, the few, but proud.

Thursday, November 11 (AM), Eclipse - Had Woody and Eddie cutting tracks. We worked on a song for the new NorthStar CD "Keepin' It Real" and one from my "Hopeless Romantic" CD. Ed and Woody both did a great job.

(PM) "Just Dave" @ Mango Mangos - Slow night! It's a shame, these are nice people and the food's good. Thanks to the folks who did show up!!!

Friday, November 12 "Just Dave" @ Finnegan's Wake - It's been a slow couple of days, guess some people are out of town. Had good time though, a few friends stopped by, made a few more new friends. Hung out with Shane, Karen and staff and had a couple of cocktails after the gig. Thanks for all the support to those who showed up!

Saturday, November 13, NorthStar @ Mango Mangos - What a night! We had a great 3 hour set! Thanks everyone for showing up and all the great folks at Mango Mangos!

It has been a great week! A couple of slow gigs, but got through them. Talked to Darryl Wise a great singer, songwriter and hopefully will be doing some songwriters events with him. No matter how bad it looks, don't give up and do the best you can. For the folks that do that, things usually work out. "Keepin' It Real" - David

Thursday, Nov 4, in the AM, Eclipse - Ed and the Wood Man (Woody Pernell) puts some tracks on NorthStar's new Christmas song "Jesus and Me". We're so happy to be apart of the project. I hope it helps to make Christmas better for those in need.

PM "Just Dave" Mango Mangos(US 1 South) - Had a good night, the weather was really crappy. Suprised by some new faces and grateful to see some familiar faces on such a dismal night. That's how it starts, thanks for supporting by my music!!!

Saturday, Nov 6, Capt Stan's "NorthStar"- Didn't think it could get much colder (but, it did). In the past year, the coldest gig I ever played was here at Capt. Stans. This was the second one. We had a blast though, oyster shooters, a good meal, great people. How can you go wrong!!!

I have a few days off (needed). I think we will check out the Chowder Debate today. I have a couple of new ideas for songs I hope to work on. Get some things done around the house. Looking forward to seeing everyone next week. Keepin' It Real - David
