January 2nd, DAVE at the Chianti Room - It was cold,cold, cold! One of the coldest gigs I've played. There were a hand full of folks that toughed it out, so I did also. Glad this one is over.

January 3rd, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - Cancelled due to weather

January 4th, DAVE at the Corner Bar - Everyone was out of town or trying to get to town so I figured I was going to be on my own tonight. Bob Semanchik who had played at our Songwriters Night in December was still in town. Bob set up and played with me and it was a blast! Enjoyed hang'in and playing with my new friend from Connecticut! See you next week!

January 5th, 6th and 7th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - I had a wonderful three days inside. The weather is still to cold to get out on the deck by the water. Lamar Braxton stopped by, ,he played drums with Gram Parsons a real nice guy. Also Jake Usina sat in and did a great job on Friday. All in all a good weekend except the weather. See you back here on January 21st.

January 9th, DAVE at Cave Canem Studios - Barry and I worked on "Ain't Life Grand" a song that has Kurt Johnston on keys, me on Guitar and Barry on bass. I really like the mix we are coming up with. I can't wait for everyone to hear it. I hope to put the final vocal track on it on Thursday. I had a good time! Remember "Don't Stare At The Sun".

January 10th, DAVE at Hurricane Grill and Wings - George Reeves was with me tonight. It's always a blast to share the night with this great player. We tried three new songs "Do I Even Cross Your Mind" (Besley/ Caudill), "The Ink Has Dried" (Besley/Reeves) and one I wrote "But We Won't".

January 11th, DAVE at Corner Bar - George and Frankie were with me tonight. We had a nice crowd and a lot of fun playing. Next week Jim is bringing Rum cake for Sheryl's birthday. You don't want to miss that.

January 12th, 13th and 14th, DAVE at The Big Deck - It is always a blast! It was a cold weekend but there was still some folks around. Pat even made a showing, he doesn't do cold that well. Thanks Bryan, Darlene and staff you guys are always the best! See you February 9th, 10th and 11th. Lets do it again minus the cold weather!

We're getting started again at Cave Canem Studios. Barry's busy schedule is lightening up a bit.  Next, I have to get back together with Dan at IAUGI Studios and continue on with our new project.Thanks for letting me live my dream!

December 18th, Songwriters Night - Charley Simmons was having some health issues and was unable to make the Songwriters Night. We hope he is going to be alright. George Reeves was able to come down and be a part of our night. We also had Bob Semanchik from Connecticut with us. Bob is a very talented songwriter. It was nice to hear his music. We all love George. Bob and I enjoyed another wonderful night of original music. Thank you for your support!

December 20th, Travel Day - We were off to Anna Marie Island and to Duffy's for a burger and a few beers and to see my friend Chuck. We had a nice lunch then headed to the beach to look for shells and sit by the pool to read. We went to Slim's for dinner and call it night.

December 21st, Relax - We had nothing to do today but relax and enjoy the beautiful beach. Chuck and I rehearsed a couple tunes he was going to do at the benefit the next day. We are going down to Marina Jacks tonight to see John Prestia play with Kettle Of Fish. Chuck, Dara, Theresa and I met Bill and Barb Bartow. It was great to see John and Bob Dielman, with Kettle Of Fish. They'll also be playing with us tomorrow at the Toys for Tots benefit at Duffy's. We heard Chris Anderson (I thing Woody Pernell played with him.) He is now in the Outlaws. He stopped by and sat in. A nice evening of music!

December 22nd, Duffy's Toys For Tots  Benefit - The place was packed and we had a great time. Bill and Barb Bartow, Joanne and Susan Collier. They are friends from my high school days in Virginia. A lot of money was raised, along with a big room full of toys. Man, it was fun. I was not in good voice but Chuck, John and Bob killed it! I am very proud to be a part of this event and I'm looking forward to next year. I can't say enough about the guys I played with except it was a real pleasure. Thanks Duffy's. If you'r eon Anna Marie Island stop in grab a bite and a beer!
