It was great to get together with Brady Green, George Reeves and Frankie Urzetta! We missed Ed Pickett, he was in Virginia. However, we did get a special treat, Rick Meyer, my old bandmate from Ludwell Newton stopped by and played a couple songs and hung out for the night. Our next gig is Monday, February 9th at Creekside 5 to 9 pm

January 6th, DAVE at the Chianti Room - It was a beautiful day! I had a nice crowd. This was one of my best gigs singing yet.  Still not 100%, but getting there. An old friend RT stopped by. Also got a chance to talk with my friend Michael Howard who stopped by on his way to play OC Whites.

January 7th, DAVE at Cave Canem Studios - I had George Reeves in today to play guitar on "Get Back In The Race".  It was good to get back to work with Barry. Later we all met (Barry, Lydia, George, Deborah, Theresa and I) and had dinner. Brianna and Braylen also stopped by.

January 7th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Cancelled due to cold weather!

January 8th, DAVE at The Corner Bar - A packed house! I am having a blast playing with George and Laurence! Kruz did a nice set! The Fernando dancers were in force. We missed the shark (Jim). Besides that, everything was great!

January 9th and 10th, DAVE at The Big Deck Raw Bar and Grille - It was cold and a little slow. It's alway good to get over to the gulf and see my friends though. I always look forward to spending time with Darlene, Bryan, Pete, Pat and Bob.  I was so sorry to hear that Willy passed away! He helped me with the title to "It's a Great Life If'in You Don't Weakin". R.I.P. Willy!

I am feeling better every day. I'm looking forward to making some plans for "Mr. Song To Evil People" with Barry and Dave Johnson. Can't wait to get together with NorthStar this week! Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Keepin' it Real! -David

I would like to start out this 2015 newsletter by remembering my friend John Shelton Irwin Jr.  He passed away on December 14th, 2014. We played in bands together over the years and wrote several songs together. Shelton was a great talent and a real inspiration to me. I will think of him every time I play our songs! My heart goes out to Jean and Trip! R.I.P. Shelton!

January 1st, DAVE at The Corner Bar - I'm was still a little shaky but with the help of my friends, George Reeves and Laurence Stevenson the show went on. We also had help from Ron Norris and Rick Levy. Thanks for sitting in! Kruz also was there and did a nice set. I would like to thank George Reeves for sharing some of his tunes with us! The Fernando Dancers were in rare form and the Bunny Man was hoping'! Great night!

January 2nd, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - It was a little chilly so I set up inside. Brady Green and John Winters sat in! It's always a blast to hang out with these two. My brother Will got up and played a couple "Hardscrabble" and "With a Little Help From My Friends".  He did a great job! What a special night!

January 3rd, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - A nice afternoon. It doesn't get much better than hanging out on the inner coastal playing some music! My friends Barry and Lydia Dunaway hung out for the afternoon. I can't wait to get back in Cave Canim Studios with Barry and RBR Studios with Dave Johnson to finish up "Mr. Song To Evil People",  my upcoming CD. Jimbo Manion (Road Ducks from Virginia and Molly Hatchet) paid me a visit as well. It was good to see my friend and I hope we get a chance to do some shows together in Virginia this year.

January 4th, DAVE at Harry's - The weather was threatening but I set up anyway. Laurence Stevenson was with me. We got a set in before it started to rain! A short night at Harry's! Thanks Laurence, I will see you at The Corner Bar on Thursday!

It's good to be back playing! I would like to thank everyone for you prayers and support! Looking forward to 2015! Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting , start talking! Keepin' It Real! -David
