November 7th, Retrophonics Studio - Jim and I worked on the "My Bird" mix.

November 9th, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Tony and Frankie at Hurricane Grill and Wings -  Cancelled due to weather.

November 10th, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Frankie and Tony Pelican Pub - Cancelled due to weather.

November 11th, 12th and 13th, DAVE at The Big Deck - DAVE It was a great weekend! I left a lot of things I needed. My music book with all my lyrics, my mic stand, thanks Wayne for lending me one, my guitar stand and my banner. Somehow I made it through,  I'm and idiot. Always a great time playing for all my old and new friends in Cedar Key. Thanks Bryan, the clam chowder was great, Darlene and staff! See you in January (13th, 14th and 15th).

Jim's studio flooded again so I won't be in the studio on Monday. I'd hoped to lay down tracks on my new tune "The Looking Glass". Dan Bagan has been sick but getting better so I will not be at Bagan and Company this week either. Thanks for letting me live my dream!!! Keepin' It Real!-David

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

October 31st, Retrophonics - Jim and I had a great session. We laid down "The Fool" and "The Magic Pill" for project #6 . Next week I hope to have "The Looking Glass" completed. We are also going to concentrate on The Big Lonesome Rides Again.  

October 31st, Bagan and Company "LIVE" - The live show was canceled, and the date moved because Clay Blasser had a scheduling problem and then on the rescheduled day, Dan Bagan was sick. It looks like November's "LIVE" show was not destined to happen. See you December 6th. We hope Dan is feeling better!

November 2nd, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Sue, Tony & Frankie at Hurricane Grill and Wings - What a night! The place was packed! Great to see Laurence and Barbara!

November 3rd, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Sue, Tony and Frankie at Pelican Pub - We had fun!

November 4th, 5th and 6th, The Shrimp and Grits Festival, Jekyll island, Ga. -  Friday Sue and I played on the Skeet Stage. We had a good show, just quit before a little rain came. It was good to see our friends from Virginia and our St. Augustine friends out in the audience. On Saturday Frankie and Tony joined Sue and I, and the Carpetbaggers took the main stage for a couple hours in the evening. What a blast! Then on Sunday I played a Songwriter's event with Jefferson Ross, Fester Hagood and Ed Pickett. It was a blast. Ed joined us on stage a few times throughout the weekend. We would like to thank the folks at  Jekyll Island and most of all Ed and Kristen Pickett. We all had a great time working with some great folks! See you next year!

I hope to do some work with Jim Devito on The Big Lonesome project.  We are praying for Dan Bagan's quick recovery. Thanks for letting me live my dream!!! Keepin' It Real! -David
