Monday, July 18th - NorthStar at The World Famous Oasis was a great gig!  Brady Green showed up.  We talked about getting together and doing some playing.  Joe said we could do it at his house.  Maybe get a little house party going.  The Nicks brothers are in town and said they'd also see me on Thursday to hear some of my new songs (I can't wait).  Sharon Holland and her family showed up (still working on getting me and John Prine together (that would be a dream come true).  There is a lot of positive energy floating around me, it feels good!!!!!

Wednesday, July 20th, NorthStar at Zachry's - I think we have our set list for Virginia show ready.  We've one more run through Wednesday in Brunswick.  This was a great gig, a lot better than the week before.  Had fun playing with my brother.  Reggie Blue stopped by.

Thursday, July 21st @ Eclipse - We'll be mixing " Is This Love Real" today.  That leaves "Yankee Lady" and background vocals, then finally it will be done.  Thanks for hanging in there with me.  I'm going to try something different for the next one.

Thursday, PM, Dave @ The Corner Bar - Was a great time.  Not real crowed but a great bunch.  Kruz sounded good.  The Nicks brothers were down.  Just a nice evening overall.  Thanks again Nick and Nanna and Cheyenne.

Friday and Saturday, July 22 & 23rd, Dave @ SeaJay's - It was a little slow and  real hot on Friday.  By the time a breeze kicked up it was time to stop.  Saturday was fantastic.  CJ, the owner was there and we got a chance to talk.   I haven't seen him in a long time.  It was well worth the trip.  Thanks to all the folks that gave the ole singer, songwriter a listen!

Sunday, July 24th, Dave @ Zaharias - The weather looked a little threatening, but just a couple of sprinkles (not that we don't need the rain).  Had a good time.  Met some folks that want to bring "NorthStar" or "Dave" to Gainesville.  Thanks Angelica and staff!

It was a good week for music though very hot!  Looking forward to the Virginia trip this week.  Thanks for supporting my music and for also supporting NorthStar and our music!  Thanks for letting me live my dream.  Keepin' It Real - David

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

7-11 The Big Lonesome @ Hurricane Patty's - I had a blast!  Everyone did a great job! This is a positive experience that I'm proud to be a part of.  The originals went great.  We still have work to do on them, but with the little time we've spent on them, I think they sounded pretty darn good.  We missed Bob and Robin, but Ed and Wayne really stepped up to the plate.  It was good to see all the support and we promise to keep working hard to create new music for you all.  Thanks Barry Dunaway (RPM, Those Guys), it's always great to see you my friend.

7-13 NorthStar @ Zachry's - The wasn't much of a crowd, but what great people to work for.  It was good to get together with Ed.  We started running over songs we want to do for the show with Planet of the Abts at the end of the month.  Thanks Barbara and DJ you're the best!

7-14 Dave@ The Corner Bar - The best night yet! Kruz did a great job.  Matt from the show "Swords Life on the Line" stopped by and picked up a couple of t-shirts, one NorthStar and one Just Dave that he said he'd wear on the show.  We'll see what happens.

I have a few days off and I plan to get a lot of things done around the house, but will probably only get half completed.  We have a birthday dinner with Brianna.  Life is good, excited about Virginia and my next gig with Ed at Oasis on Monday.  Thanks for letting me live my dream!  Keepin' It Real - David

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

Monday and Tuesday, July 4 and 5th - I had a good couple of days off.  I got a lot done around the house.

Thursday, July 7th - Just Dave @ The Corner Bar.  Had a little rain early, I was worried about folks coming out.  Turned out to be a excellent night.  Thanks Kruz.  Thanks Nick and Nanna!  Also at the end of the night I met Matt from the Big Eye from the show Swordfish Life on the Line.  He was a great guy, we were both watching the show together.

Friday, July 8th - Just Dave @ Zaharias - Rain Out.

Saturday, July 9th - Just Dave at SeaJay's.  I was feeling a little rough but decided to give it all I had,  Turned out to be a pretty good night!

Sunday, July 10th - Just Dave @ Zachry's. Not real crowded but had a nice audience.  Looking forward to NorthStar on Wednesday (7-13-11).

It was a good week, played some music, did some work in the studio.  Fished and started writing another song!  Doesn't get much better than this.  Looking forward to The Big Lonesome.  Thanks for letting me live my dream!  Keepin' It Real - David

6-28-11 Just Dave @ The World Famous Oasis - My birthday night.  Had a lot of fun.  I think I have a plan for the land of the TVs.  It seems to be working out.  Just have to figure out how to do it for 4 1/2 hours.  I will and I know NorthStar will.  Thanks Splash and the rest of the gang for treating me so good.

6-29-11 Just Dave @ Harry's - It was a rain out.  They bought me a nice dinner though.

6-30-11 Eclipse - Had Rusty Springfield in to add bass on "Music Man" for  NorthStar's CD "Keepin' It Real".  Had Mike Houpt playing organ on "What Would You Do" for my CD "Hopeless Romantic".

Just Dave @ The Corner Bar - Great night!  Kruz did a great job!  Had a blast!  Thanks Nick and Nanna.

7-1-11 The Big Lonesome @ Latitude 31 on Jekyll Island - NorthStar opened, but not for long.  Everyone was itching to play.  We had a great night.  The originals went overt real good. Gregg's new tune.  "Juke Joint Down on the River" and Wayne's " Cold Day In Hell" were  added to the set list.  I can't wait to get together with the boys on July 11th at Hurricane Patty's.  Check it out 6-10pm.

7-2-11 Just Dave @ SeaJay's - Had a great night until about 9:30 pm, the mosquitos came in and ran everyone but my wife off the porch.  I knew she loved me, but not that much.  Thanks, Theresa, Tommy and staff.

7-3-11 Just Dave @ Latitude 31 - It was a beautiful day.  Great breeze, great crowd, great staff.

I'm surrounded by positive people and it is so inspiring.  Can't wait to do more work on the two new CD's ("Hopeless Romantic" and "Keepin' It Real).  I met one of Ed's singer-songwriter friends Hugo Duarte.  What a special guy!  We talked about song writing and showed each other some tunes.  He told me he though Ed was a special spirit and that he felt that way about Gregg when he met him (i feel the same).  I'm going to turn him on to the Berardo's (who he's heard about) and hopefully we'll get together in the future.  Man, what a great weekend!  "Keepin' It Real" - David
