Tuesday, 1/25 JUST DAVE @ Harry's- Rained out. I hate missing a gig, but glad to see the rain. We needed it.

Wednesday, 1/26 A day off. JD called me and we went to The Shores to see a songwriters circle (Philip White, Monte Holmes and Scotty Emerick). The show was good, the three of them were great writers. I saw Walt, he provided the sound. We had a good time, not like most writer circles I've been to though. More of a circus until JD and I moved up closer. Songwriter showcases I've been to in the past are usually listening rooms. Thanks JD!

Thursday, 1/27 JUST DAVE @ The Corner Bar - What an outstanding night. Had some great people out tonight, Rick Kyson and Don Dunaway showed up. These were the first two guys I met when Ed and myself first came to St. Augustine. What a trip to be playing for them! Also Bill was there with his hair down. The great Rob Peck played some with me and did a couple on his own. Kruz got up and did a couple too. Paul Berger also stopped by. Overall an awesome night! Thanks everybody!

Friday, 1/28 Eclipse - Woody put percussion on Is This Love Real.

JUST DAVE @ Finnegan's Wake - I'm going to be playing a lot of gigs in this room "JUST DAVE" and some with my brother Eddie "NORTHSTAR". The owners are great people, Shane and Karen. It felt like we had a good night. Made some new friends, saw some old ones, had a blast. Thanks Courtney and staff you all are great! Missed you Shane and Karen, sorry for your loss.

Saturday, 1/29 JUST DAVE @ Finnegan's Wake - Another grand night! Frankie (Those Guys) sat in on a few, as always, he sang his ass off. Good to see Mary again too! Met Chris who has built some beautiful guitars. Had a lot of friends down, you know who you are. It doesn't get any better than this.

This has been a fantastic week (always is, anytime I have a chance to play my music). Introduced a new song this week That's the Way I Fly. I hung out and played with some great writers and players. I lived the dream this week, thanks for sharing it with me. Keepin' It Real - David

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

Tuesday, January 18, Eclipse - I put 2 guitar tracks on "Goodbye Danny". Next week Woody and adding a violin track, then that song will just need a mix.

Wednesday, January 19, NORTHSTAR @ Captain Stan's - Thought it was going to be a nice night. WRONG! Cold as hell again. We still had fun. It's always good to see the Capt, missed Beth, though. Maybe the next gig here will be a warm one.

Thursday, January 20, JUST DAVE @ The Corner Bar - What a night! Had the great Barry Dunaway stop by (my hero). Also had Sharon his sister and Kruz get up and play some of their tunes. Thank you guys! Looking forward to next week. Thanks Felicia, Deana and Kelly, you guys are the best.

Friday, January 21, NORTHSTAR @ Crosby's Seafood House - We had a great night! After a great dinner we sat down to play. We were in our first hour and Frankie (Those Guys) showed up. He sat in through the night and sounded great! Also, Barry (Those Guys) and Sharon stopped by for the last song. It was good to hang with two guys I respect a lot. Thanks everyone for showing up. And thanks Ed!

Saturday, January 22, NORTHSTAR @ The Corner Bar - Another great night! It has been a great weekend! Thanks Felicia, the staff and everyone who came out.

Sunday, January 23, NORTHSTAR @ Zachry's - This is a great place1 Not only is the food great, it is run by great people. Thanks Barbara and family, you guys are the best!

I'm really lucky. I'm playing with my brother Ed (NORTHSTAR) and having fun with the solo gig (JUST DAVE). There's also a new project in the makings that I'm excited about. I got a chance to play with Frankie this week and hang out with Barry. I am surrounded by great people and there is no better feeling than that! Keepin' It Real - David

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

Sunday, 1/16 "JUST DAVE", The World Famous Oasis - It's was a great two days of playing solo and then the NorthStar gig with Frankie sitting in. Now on my way to the Oasis. This is the longest gig I play. With the TV's running (all 44 of them), it sometimes can be grueling. Anyway, I had all of this on my mind as I drove to the gig tonight. There was good chance that this would be a disaster. Thankfully, I was wrong, I had a great time! It has been a great weekend! Thanks to The Corner Bar, Finnegan's Wake and The World Famous Oasis and everyone who hung out. "Keepin' It Real -David

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

Thursday, 1/13, "JUST DAVE", The Corner Bar - Once again I would like to thank Felicia and staff (Deana and Nick) for making it such a enjoyable evening. Thursday's are shaping up nicely. The food is excellent here. Stop in, you won't regret it!!

Friday, 1/14 AM, Eclipse - Studio time this morning with Jim Stafford. I sang "Hopeless Romantic" and "Yesterday is Gone". Lead vocals done. Need Woody in on three more percussion parts, need Kurt for a couple hours, then Mike Howard for background vocals and this project will be complete!

PM, "JUST DAVE", Finnegan's Wake - I had a great time! Always nice to have friends and familiar faces stop by, but just as nice to see new ones. This has always been one of my favorite venues. Excited for Saturday, playing here with my brother Ed (our duo, NorthStar).

Saturday, 1/15, "NORTHSTAR", Finnegan's Wake - This was a NorthStar gig so I was already looking forward to playing with Eddie. Then Frankie (Those Guys) called me, he wanted to come and play some. Now I'm really excited. We had a fantastic night!!! It was good to spend an evening with Frankie and Mary again. I really enjoy Ed and Frankie's company, but then to play great music doesn't get any better than that. Thanks Shane, Karen, Courtney, Andrew and staff, as always it was a great time. Looking forward to doing it again soon!!

I really think solo "JUST DAVE" and duo "NORTHSTAR" is a better fit for me. I'm so loving it!!! I feel more comfortable performing my songs in this setting. I guess this makes sense because that is how most of my music is written. I know I say this all the time, but it is true, and comes from the bottom of my heart. THANKS EVERYBODY FOR SUPPORTING MY MUSIC ALL THESE YEARS!!! It is because of YOU that I can continue to do it. "Keepin' It Real" - David

See you down the road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday, January 2, Jaguars football, relaxed and packing for camping trip.

Monday - Thursday, January 3-6, I think it was our nicest camping spot yet. We (Theresa, Penny Lane and myself) met up with the Dunaway crew (Barry, Lydia, Noggiin @ Abbey) at Fort Desoto (St. Pete). The place was beautiful, the weather was perfect and no bugs! Had the chance to hang out with Julie and Kyle (friends of Barry and Lydia)and had some awesome Italian food at Tony and Nelos. Also, Dave's life long friend Chuck Caudill stopped by the campsite one evening for a cookout. I think there is yet another Fairview Gang reunion in the making. The trip was a whole bunch of fun!

Thursday, January 6 (PM), The Corner Bar - Had a great night! Jim Dunaway (manager to Those Guys and The Hackers, also known as Cheif Thundermug or Chick Magenet) stopped by along with a host of other friends. This is a great place, I'm so lucky to have everyone stop in to hear my music! I thank everybody from the bottom of my heart!

Friday & Saturday, January 7 & 8, SeaJay's, Jekyll Island, GA - Theresa, Penny and I left for Georgia Friday afternoon. Things were a little slow at the gig, but the folks that were there made it a lot of fun. Thanks Tommy and staff for taking such good care of us!

I am so sorry to hear about my friend Tommy's passing. The news was really tough to take. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Also my old friend Alan, you were always very kind to me. God bless you both. "Keepin' It Real" - David

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

Monday, December 27, Hurricane Patty's - It was a Hacker's night! Everyone kicked butt. All the usual suspects were present and accounted for. Since Jim's departure Frankie is back into the fold. The new faces were Dave on percussion and Wayne on guitar, vocals and harp. We had a great crowd! I always look forward to this gig. Thanks everyone for supporting the Hackers.

Tuesday, December 28, Tokyo Tai - Theresa, Brianna and myself went for Sushi. GREAT SUSHI!

Wednesday, December 29, Captain Stan's - The Captain wasn't here tonight. His mother is very sick. Beth and crew did great. As usual it was cold as hell, but we had a nice crowd and a nice dinner afterwards. We missed you Captain Stan!

Thursday, December 30, The Corner Bar - Great evening! Did a 3 hour set, afterwards spoke with Levi and Michelle who mentioned that in that 3 hours, I played only 3 cover tunes. Had a blast. See you every Thursday at the Corner Bar!! Thanks Felisha!!!

Friday, December 31, Hurricane Patty's New Years Eve Party - What a great night! This was one of the best New Years Eve gigs I've play in awhile. And it's been awhile since I've played one. It was good to bring in the new year with my friends. Thanks everyone! Also special thanks to Mike, Dewey and Denny for sitting in.

I've spent the last part of 2010 trying to be involved with more positive situations, and hope to continue on this path for the future. I am excited about the new year and hope for only good things for everyone. If you're with me lets try to make life a little brighter. If your not, here's a title of a song from my new CD "Hopeless Romantic" that says it all (written by Barry Dunaway and myself) "See You Later So Long". Keepin' It Real - David

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