November 25th, The Big Lonesome, Retrophonics Studios - Jim and I started working on the tracks that The Big Lonesome started in 2011. I'm m going to finish it up by next year with Frankie, Tony, Sue and George's help. We are going to complete this project. This was a dream band, these were all great players whom I've had the chance to play with over the years. What makes it so special is to include musicians that I currently work with and one of The Big Lonesome's original members Frankie Urzetta. We are going to see this project completed. I am proud to be working with Jim Devito at Retrophonics.
November 26th, George's house - George and I worked on "Nothin' At All" and started writing on "Telephone Lightin'". It's good to be back working with George. We are also getting back to work on "Confederate Lament" a song we co-wrote with the great Don Oja Dunaway. We already have an instrumental "Dust them Blinds" we co-wrote with Sue Westcott pretty much complete. We are on our way to starting another project. I'm excited!
November 27th, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Sue and George, Hurricane Grill and Wings - What a great night! Great crowd! We had Mel Rogers, a friend of Sue's from Alabama sit in and she was fantastic! I hope to get her playing some tracks on my next projects, a solo CD I'm working on, "The Big Lonesome" CD that Frankie and I are going to finish up or the CD George and I hope to start working on after our "Don't Stare At The Sun" CD release.
November 28th, Happy Thanksgiving! - I met my brother Will along with Jay for an afternoon Thanksgiving dinner at the Corner Bar. Thanks for my dinner Pat. We were surprised by Brady Green and Doug Hyde. After our dinner Jay and I went to Dan and Suzy's for some pre-dinner snacks (deviled eggs and pigs in a blanket). Then I dropped Jay off at home and was picked up by Jim Grimes and we went to Thanksgiving dinner at Wayne and Sue's. It was a great feast and a great time!
November 29th, 30th and December 1st, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - My first of three days at this venue went well. It was a nice day on the porch by the water. The place was packed, it couldn't have been any better. Day 2 on the porch was beautiful! Great crowd! I also got pooped on by one of the birds while I was playing and was informed it was good luck. Day 3 was pretty windy but there was a good amount of people that braved the wind. It turned out to be a great weekend overall. I'll be back here again performing next weekend.
Another busy week! Looking forward to getting together with Jim at Retrophonics Studioto and continuing work on "The Big Lonesome rides Again". Also working with Dan at Bagan and Company on the final for our new CD, Carpetbaggers performing songs written by Dave and George, and also continuing on "Live and a Little Touched" CD. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Smile it could brighten someones day, even your own! Think and speak good thoughts, there are enough people telling you about the bad. Keepin' It Real! -David
