March 19th, NorthStar with Brady Green and Friends at  Zaharia's - Had a good night! The belts separated on my tire and my crossover quit working so I was a bit frazzled. Still I had a great time! Gregg Chirico sat in on a couple of tunes. Kruz got up and played (with Brady on one tune). Looking forward to our next gig at Zaharias (April 16th).  Come and check it out!

March 22nd, Dave at The Corner Bar - Had a nice crowd! Kruz did a good job. I missed last week (private party) it was good to be back at The Corner Bar!

March 24th, NorthStar with Matt Williams at Latitude 31- Ed and I were joined by Matt. We were playing some good music and the crowd was getting into it. Then came the rain! Matt and Ed were doing some good pickin'. It was my first time playing with Matt and I was real impressed! Later the rain let up and we decided to go at it again. Then comes The Turkey's (Chris, Harold, Kyle and Brian).  We pretty much jammed out the rest of the night. I can't wait to hear these guys at the festival tomorrow!

March 25th, The 2nd Annual Americana Blues Festival, Jekyll Island, GA - Bob Margolin, The Turkeys, NorthStar and The WharfRatzs - This was a big success! What a great combination of music! Everyone played their butts off. The jam was a lot of fun. It was great to be on the stage again with my friend and blues legend Bob Margolin. I think Ed and everyone else involved did a great job and I can't wait until next year!!!

March 26th, Dave at Zaharias - It was a beautiful day! Had a small but lively crowd.  It's good to be back home!

What a week, got some work done on NorthStar's "Keepin' It Real" CD.  Got to play with my friend Bob Margolin, got to jam a little with The Turkey's and last but not least got to play with my brother Ed and Frankie (NorthStar). Looking forward to what ever is next! Thanks for letting me live my dream! "Keepin' It Real" - David

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

March 15th, Eclipse - I had Woody in the studio today. He laid down percussion tracks on "Love" and "Livin' In My Head". Getting closer everyday to completing Keepin' It Real. I can't wait to get started on my next solo CD yet to be named!

March 15th, Dave at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Had a good time! It was a little Thursday change up (private party being held at The Corner Bar). Kruz did a good job!

Had a great 3 days at the Welaka Lodge & Resort. Kevin and Jessica were great hosts. Had a visit by Brady Green, Derick Hess and family. We will be back to this great place as soon as we can!

March 6th - Dave @ The Oasis - Pretty crowded! I was a little tired from rehearsal but had a good time in spite of it.

March 7th, NorthStar @ Captain Stan's - Great night! I had a blast playing with Ed. There's only a few real magic moments in the day to day playing and this was one of them!  Shaking Ed's hand at the end of the night, we both knew it was special! That's what it's all about!

March 8th, Brady Green @ Eclipse - Brady was in the studio and put a guitar part on "Bunnyman" and added a back-up part to "With You/ Without You".  Kurt Johnston will also add a couple of tracks on this song.  I sang " Fast As The Wind".  Came up with a couple of other ideas while we were there.

March 8th, Dave @ The Corner Bar - A little slow but still had fun. Brought back a couple of old tunes "Loser's Hit Parade", "The Times They Are A Changing" and " I Started A Joke". Kruz did a good job. Good night overall!

March 9th, Dave @SeaJay's - This was a good gig! Tommy got up and sang " Operator". Good start to the weekend!

March 10th, Dave @Latitudes - It was nasty out (windy and cold). There was some construction going on and they had takin' down the curtains that break the wind. I thought to bitch, but then I remembered the change I made when Iwent solo. I sucked it up didn't cry and had a great night! Thanks everyone for hangin' out with me!

March 11th, Dave @ Creekside - It was windy and cold again but what a crowd! Had the whole cast of "Kiss Me Kate" out dancing.  It's good to be back at Creekside! Thanks for hangin' out with me everybody! See you next month!

What a week! It was nasty weather for the most part but everything turned out great! Looking forward to getting some more work done on "Keepin' It Real".  We have Woody coming in this week.  I also can't wait to hear the tracks Wayne did for "The Big Lonesome Live" CD. Thanks for letting me live my dream! "Keepin' It Real" - David
