November 15th, Dave @ The World Famous Oasis -  I had some fun in the land of 44 TV's!  I am getting use to this gig now. Thanks Lisa and staff!

November 17th, Dave @ The Corner Bar - What a night! Had Douglas sit in. Kruz did his set. Then Rob Peck stopped by and did some playing and singing.  This is a fun place to play and it's even more fun when I have other players stop by and do their thing!  Thanks guy's you're great! Thanks Nanna, Katie and Chris.

November 19th, The Big Lonesome @ The St. Augustine Amphitheater - We had a great show. The crowd was not very big but we gave them our best! We were running 24 tracks and 2 camera's. Can't wait to see what we came up with. Thank's to The Friends of the Amphitheater, Terry, Eclipse Recording Co (Jim Stafford and crew) and Dan Bagan.

November 19th, NorthStar @Hurricane Grill and Wings - This is a nice place! Good atmosphere! Good food! Good time!  Thanks Frankie, Wayne and friends for stopping by!  Also thank's to Abe and Kevin for having us play!

Another great week! Things are going to be slowing down a bit for the next couple months. I will be finishing up a couple projects and starting a couple more! Once again I would like to thank all the folks that support Dave, Northstar and The Big Lonesome. Thanks for letting us live our dreams! "Keepin' It Real" -David

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

November 9th, NorthStar @ The World Famous Oasis - We had a nice crowd.  It was good to get back to playing with brother Ed.  Wayne Johnston (The Big Lonesome) joined us.  It is always a pleasure to play with this great player.  Thanks Liz and staff!

November 10th Eclipse - Mixing "The Battle of New Orleans" to put on our Northstar website.  This is one of the songs we will be releasing on "Keepin' It Real" our new upcoming CD.

PM, Dave at The Corner Bar - I really enjoy this gig. Nanna did a good job on "Landslide".  Kruz did a great job also! Thanks Nick, Nanna and Chris!

November 11th, Dave @ SeaJay's - One of many great nights I have had at this venue. There's a lot of folks sailing up and down the coast right now.  It's a great bunch to play music for.  Thanks Tommy and staff!

November 12th, NorthStar @ Latitude 31 - Ed and I had a blast.  What a great crowd.  Between us, we did everything anyone wanted to hear and also played them some of our music. Thanks everyone!

November 13th, Dave @ Zaharias - There was no one there when I showed up.  Not even a bartender. I was a little nervous but it tuned out to be a great Sunday!  Had a lot of friends show up, that always makes for a great evening.  Looking forward to Northstar w/Brady Green (and maybe some other special guest's).  Monday, November 21st 6-9pm.  Thanks Angelica and staff!

November 14th, The Big Lonesome @ Hurricane Patty's - We had a pretty good turn out.  We are playing at the Amphitheater this Saturday so we ran through our set.  It went good.  I have a lot of favorite things about this band. I am really enjoying what everyone is doing on the Northstar songs we start the night with! I just like hangin' out with this bunch of outlaws!  Thanks to the folks that are supporting our music!  Thanks Lisa and staff!

It was another great week! I am lookinf forward to whatever is coming up in the future. I am excited about all the new original music that is going to be coming out in the next couple of month's. I'm ready to get to work on the next solo CD. Thanks for letting me live my dream! "Keepin' It Real" - David

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

November 2nd, Dave @ Oasis -  I'm starting to change my mind.  Oasis is turning out to be a gig I look forward to, even with all the distractions,  it's been fun!  See you guys with brother Ed (Northstar) on the 9th!  Thanks Lisa, Katie and staff!

November 3rd, Dave @ The Corner Bar - It was a little slow this week but still had some moments.  Kruz did a good job. Nanna got up and did "Landslide".  Rick Kyson stopped by and said he might get up and play some in the future (that would be a real treat)!  Thanks Nick, Nanna and Chris!

November 4th, Eclipse -  Headed into the studio with Wayne Johnston.  He's going to put a mandolin part on "Hopeless Romantic"and a harp part on "I'm Not Going To Be Santa Claus This Year".  I'm going to add a bass track on the Santa Claus tune.

PM - Dave @ SeaJay's - This is a good gig for a singer/songwriter especially when it's inside.  I always seem to have a good time at this gig!  Thanks Tommy and staff!

November 5th, Dave @ BarNone - 11-5-11 I had a blast!  The requests were for Prine, Stevens and Dylan.  It was easy to play my tunes to an audience like that.  Had a great time!  Thanks Chris, Keith, Jay and Neil you guys are the best.  See you December 10th with Northstar!

November 6th, Dave @ Zaharias - Cancelled due to bad weather. To bad, I really like this gig!

November 7th, Rehersal/The Big Lonesome- Had a great practice! Worked up some new arrangements and parts on some of our songs!  Only 7 days left for The Big Lonesome gig at Hurricane Patty's (November 14th, 6-10pm).  Come check out our show.  We will be doing songs we put together for the Amphitheater show on the 19th and many more!!!

It's been a fantastic week!  I got some work done on "Hopeless Romantic" and added a couple of tracks to "I'm Not Going To Be Santa Claus This Year".  A song Wayne and myself wrote for the Eclipse Christmas CD!  Got together with my friends and band mates from "The Big Lonesome." Life is good! Thanks for letting me live my dream!  Keepin' It Real -David

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

October 25th, Dave @ The World Famous Oasis - I had a blast in the land of 44 tv's.  Good listening crowd!  That's not easy to get, with so much going on!  Thanks Katie and staff!

October 27th - Eclipse - More mixing on my new cd "Hopeless Romantic".

PM, Dave @ The Corner Bar - It started out a little slow but kicked into gear pretty quick.  Thanks Kruz, good job!  Thanks Nick, Nanna and Chris you guys are the best!

October 28th and 29th, Dave @ SeaJay's - This was maybe my best 2 days ever at SeaJay's.  Met a lot of new folks.  Tried some new music.  It was just a great weekend overall! Thanks Big Ed and Diane for letting me hang out.  Thanks Tommy and staff!

October 31th, Dave @ Harry's - I'm batting around 500 for this gig.  It looked like I was going to go home again (rain) but it cleared up.  A little cold, but had a great crowd!  Met a guy from Firefall (Bob, i think).  He was just married that day! He also knew Barry Dunaway! Also Daryl Wise stopped by.  What a great singer/ songwriter he is! Great staff, great night! Thanks everyone!

October 31st, The Hackers @ Hurricane Patty's - It was Halloween.  We were lucky to have the Johnston brothers with us! There were some great moments!  It was a pleasure to play with this group of guys.  Thanks for coming out everyone!

Normally I don't listen much to my CD's after I've recorded them.  I always seem to be moving on to the next project.  Yesterday, however, I sat and listened to "Believe These Eyes" and my new CD "Hopeless Romantic" uninterrupted, and I really enjoyed it.  I am so lucky and proud to be able to write music and then have all you great players give a little of yourselves to my songs.  I am ready to start on the next one, untitled, at this time,  while Ed and myself work to finish "Keepin' It Real" our next effort! Thanks for letting me live my dream!

One last note,  i would be remiss if I didn't mention the fact that it had to be Jim Dunaway who helped those Cards win The Series that way.  Keepin' It Real - David

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