January 22nd, Retrophonics Studios - Jim, Johnny and I worked on mixes for "Life Goes On", " Get Along Little Pony" and "I'm So Gone".

January 24th, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Sue, Tony  and Frankie at Hurricane Grill and Wings - The power went off about 4pm just as I finished setting up. It came back on and off again about 4:20 and at 4:30 or so we were good to go. A beautiful day in the neighborhood. We had a great evening somewhere else on A1A.

January 25th, Bagan and Company - Dan and I working on a release for Facebook called "I Feel The Love" It's from my new solo project Poor-Dum. Later Theresa and I had dinner at Barbara Jean's on the Water with Gary and Debbie Carroll. They are friends of ours on vacation here from Virginia.  It was nice to catch up with my ole band mate. I hope we see more of them in the future. 

January 26th, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Sue, Tony and Frankie at The St. Augustine Fish House and Oyster Co - It was a great night! Great crowd! Good to see John Winters!

January 27th - I was off today. I stopped by and saw John Winters and Mark Richey at Marina Munch in the afternoon, they sounded great. John and Mark will be on stage with Bob and I for March's Songwriter's Night.

Just heard one of my life long friends Paul D'Angelo passed away. One more of the Fairview Gang heads to heaven with Pat and Jayne. R.I.P. my friend.  

January 31st - I finally finished up an new tune I've been working on called  "Front and Center" with some help on a few lines from Theresa.  

January 31st, Carpetbaggers DAVE, Sue, Tony and Frankie at Hurricane Grill and Wings - It turned out to be a great night, never sure with the current weather situation. We were under the tent, folks were showing up 2 hours before the gig to get seats. I know I was there setting up.

February 1st, Carpetbaggers DAVE and Sue at The World Famous Oasis Tiki Bar - What a great night! At one point in the night Sue turned to me and said "the place is full".  I hadn't even noticed I was just enjoying playing. When I looked up it was full, people braving the cold weather. Thanks Jean and all the great folks at Oasis. Also all our friends old and new that support Carpetbaggers music. Also JC Hatfield, Noelle and Jim's friend Jimmy were in the audience.

February 2nd, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - I have always said if folks are sitting outside to eat I will play. It turned out to be a nice afternoon. As the sun started to set it began to cool off pretty quick but there were still a porch full of folks there when I left. Thanks Brian, Dave and staff you guys are the best!

February 3rd, Carpetbagger DAVE, Sue,Tony and Frankie at San Sebastian Winery - There was a breeze and it was chilly but Kyle put a heater on the stage and everyone seemed comfortable. I think it was different for the folks that came out to see us. Thanks to Kyle and all the great folks at the San Sebastian Winery, you guys are the best. If you haven't been here, come up on the roof to look around the town and to check out our sound.

February 4th, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - The weather didn't cooperate so I had to cancel. As it turned out, the sun came out  later in the day...darn. Well, sometimes you win sometimes you loose. I'll be back in two weeks.

Looking forward to Retrophonics Studios and Jim DeVito to move along with the mixes on my new Poor-Dum project. Also working with Dan Bagan to release my next song on Facebook "Get Along Little Pony" a song I co-wrote with Mike Caudill in the 70's. Thanks for letting me live my dream!!!  Keepin' It Real! -David
