January 23rd, The Super Hackers @Hurricane Patties -What a night! Everyone was on! And everyone was there! What a way to welcome our newest member Kurt Johnston! Great job everyone! I also enjoyed hanging out with the guys at the end of the night it's been a long time since thats gone on. We would like to wish Walt the best of luck! Looking forward to the next gig February 27th. We would also like to thank Barry Dunaway and Eric Searcy for stopping by (2 great players and friends).

January 25th, Daryl Wise @The Corner Bar - Went out to support my fellow Singer/ Songwriter. What a talented guy! I was knocked out by his songs and his playing. We did a couple of my tunes Upside Down (Besley) and Livin' In The Past (Besley/Berardo). Also did Yankee Lady (Jesse Winchester). It was a lot of fun! Kruz was there with Trudy and also played some. If I am off thats where I'll be on Wednesday's.

January 26th, Eclipse - Got a lot of work done on "Keepin' It Real".  The new NorthStar CD. I added a few bass tracks and cleaned up a few endings. I will be out with Brady Green this week.  He is going to do some tracks on our new CD.  We are going to get together and have a few drinks and make a few plans.  I can't wait, it sounds like we will have some fun!

January 26th, Dave @ The Corner Bar - I finally have all my system together from the power surge. And had a nice crowd to play too! Kruz did a good mini-set as he calls it. I was surprised to see my good friend Barry Dunaway and Lydia walk in. And I was proud to play "See You Later, So Long".  A song Barry and I wrote for my new CD "Hopeless Romantic". Good night overall!

January 27th - Dave @Sea Jay's - There was a pretty full house. Good start for my short road trip. Met some folks from Alabama that want 'Dave" to come to their town. Sounds like fun, lets book it! Thanks Tommy and staff!

January 28th, Dave @ The Wind Rose Cafe - Mark, Nell and Howard it was so good to see you guys!  I had one of my best times ever at The Wind Rose! I can't wait to get back! It was good to hang out with my friends and play my music!

January 29th, Dave @ Zaharias - I got there to set up and there was a pretty cold breeze blowing. At that time Angelica and I decided it was going to be to uncomfortable for me to play or sit and listen to me play. Theresa said a lot of people were coming down and were disappointed. Angelica and I were disappointed too! Thanks for understanding!

Besides not playing yesterday I had a great week!  My new CD is out "Hopeless Romantic". I did some work on NorhtStars upcoming CD "Keepin' It Real". Had a great gig with The Super Hackers. Learned a couple new tunes! Saw and played for some old friends! A great week overall! Thanks for letting me live my dream! "Keepin' It Real" -David

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

January 16th, NorthStar with Brady Green at Zaharias - What a night! I really enjoyed playing with Brady and Ed.  We had a short visit and help with a song from John Winters.  Kruz got up and did a few and did a good job!  I can't wait until February 13th at Zaharias 6-9pm thats the next NorthStar with Brady Green. Also Rick Kyson was there someday he said he will share the stage with us but right now he feels like dancing!

January 19th, Dave at Corner Bar - First of all, my new CD came out, "Hopeless Romantic".  I am excited about that.  Kruz did a good job.  Also Rob Peck stopped by and played a little with both of us! I had a great time tonight!  See you Sunday at Zaharias 6-9pm

January 20th, Songwriters Night, Eddie and Friends at Latitude 31 - Great night! Got a chance to meet Connie Laine, she is a song writer from St. Simons Island, Ga. We played some good original music and a few covers! I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did! We missed you Mike!

January 21st, Writers in The Round, The King and Prince - Man this was a real experience! I loved it! Met some great songwriters and some great people! Thanks  Vinny, Connie Laine (the host and artist) and staff.  You guys did a great job!  It was a pleasure meeting Jefferson Ross and Leo Dean, you guys are both great songwriters. Ed you did a great job!

January 22nd, Dave at Zaharias - It was football Sunday but it was also Dave. Both games were great and so was the gig! Thanks for coming out and supporting my music! I truly enjoy hanging out with all of you!

Check out my new CD "Hopeless Romantic".  I will sell you one if you get in touch and send me your address I will be in the studio working on NorthStars new CD "Keepin' It Real" this week.

January 12th, Dave @ Eclipse - Got a rough mix of our show "The Big Lonesome" at the St. Augustine Amphitheater. So far so good. Maybe a live cd/dvd is in the future.

January 12th, Dave @ The Corner Bar - I had a little trouble with my new system but because I showed up early it was only me that had to suffer. Oh Katie and a couple of other folks at the bar got a little tortured. Kruz did a good job with his own guitar! The place to be Wednesday is The Corner Bar (Daryl Wise) is playing.  Theresa and myself are going to stop by and check it out!

January 13th, Dave @  Red Frog and McToad's - Who said Friday the 13th is bad luck! It was a great night for me. Everyone was real nice and the place looks great! I will be back there February 3rd. Come check the place out!

January 14th, Norhtstar @ Hurricane Grille and Wings - Our gig was canceled due to the weather so Theresa and I decided to go out for a bit. Stopped by the Lovely Linda's birthday party, then went to BarNone and had a couple. Finally, ending up at Hurricane Patty's to see Mr. Natural. A real fun night overall!

January 15th, Dave and Theresa @ Brady Green and Beth's birthday party at The Six Mile Marina - This will definitely be on my list of events to attend next year! Thanks to the Greens for putting on one hell of a feast! Brady I will see you tomorrow at Zaharias 6-9 pm NorthStar with Brady Green and friends!

It's great to hang out with friends.  Not playing music just hanging out.  Thanks Brady, John and Derek I had a blast! Thanks for letting me live my dream! "Keepin' It Real"  -David

January 2, 2012,  Gregg's Oyster Roast - Gregg got a new fire pit and asked Theresa and I if we wanted to pick up a bushel of oysters and stop by.  We couldn't pass that up.  We had a great time!

January 5th, Dave @ The Corner Bar - A small but mighty crowd! We had Kruz back.  He was in good form! We also had the Fernando Dancers and The Bunny Man in the house. Good job everybody!

January 6th, Eclipse - In the studio working on NorthStar's "Keepin' It Real". Put a bass part on "Love" and started a mix on "The Battle of New Orleans"

January 6th, Dave @ Hurrican Grille and Wings - As I was setting up the temperature was dropping. I remember saying to Kevin that if nobody showed up we could work something out. Once again I was wrong, it turned out to be a great crowd!

January 7th, Dave @ SeaJay's - Man it was dead! I still had fun playing requests for the few people and staff that were there!

January 8th Dave @ Zaharias - There was an electrical problem that blew a bunch of my equipment up so I was unable to play. I apologize to the folks that showed up and that were planning on showing up (thank God Theresa knows how to text). I may have been down on Sunday but not out, see you on Thursday at The Corner Bar.

It has been quite a week. I know the article in the Ignition Music Magazine said my CD would be out by Christmas.  It's a little late (counting the days). This was a true test for me this week and I found out there are a lot of good people around. Thanks Angelica, Jim Stafford, Theresa, Gregg, Brother Will and Dennis at Audio 3000. I couldn't have done it without you all. Thanks for letting me live my dream! "Keepin' It Real" - David

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