Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

First, let me wish for you and yours all the best that the holiday season has to offer for now and all through the next year and years to follow.

More change is in the wind for Yours Truly. Some of you have been on this musical journey with me for a lot of years. You came down to Key West and we partied at the Bull where I played regularly for several years. You might even have made your trip an annual thing. Continue reading →

Greetings from a cooling Michigan


We are still having some warm days in the 70’s and even up to 80 but, by and large, things are cooling here as we head into fall.  Fall is my favorite season!


Northern Express Magazine just did a very nice article on me.  I’m a lucky guy to get this kind of attention.  It was even dated 9/11/15 which, is our wedding anniversary.  Read the Northern Express article.

Songwriting Award! Eye Surgery & More

Songwriting award for "The Eagle"

I was really excited to get this notification!  It happened about 10 days ago but, several things, including surgery on both eyes, put me way behind schedule.  I can’t tell you what a thrill it is to make Runner Up in a contest of thousands of entries from all over the world.  Ah……it feels so good!  Click the link to hear The Eagle

Shows Coming Up Soon!

But first, did you see this with Alicia at The Mitten last Wednesday?

What’s Been Going Down and What’s Coming Up

Greetings from west Michigan!

Here’s a reminder to check the schedule for summer performances.  I’ve been doing quite a bit in Grand Rapids at places like Flat Landers Barstillery   and, Vitali’s Pizza and Sports Bar.  And, of course, we are back into full swing with our Wednesday night (mostly guitar) duos at The Mitten Bar in Ludington where I host a different guest artist every Wednesday from 7p-10p.  Many other venues make up the complete schedule.

This week’s Mitten guest is Rick Hicks (Ojays, Betty Joplin, DeBarge, Archie Bell & the Drells).
Next week’s Mitten guest is Stephen Plummer, a local Berkeley grad who can really pick.

One day, maybe, I will play only house concerts but that day has not yet arrived.  I will be happy when it comes.  Already, I’ve done a few this summer and there are several more coming up.  There are art gallery shows at Golden Key Gallery and theShagway Arts Barn, very similar to house concerts.  Perhaps, we can schedule a house concert in your home.  These are so cool and people just love them!  For more info visit www.concertsinyourhome.com

Wow!  It’s almost time for Margi and me to leave Florida for some cooler air, and the beautiful Lake Michigan shore we call home.   We got here in November and the time has just flown by.

Less than 3 weeks remain for us in Florida and then, we will head for Michigan with a stop-over in Corydon, IN (Greater Louisville, KY area).  There are a just a few more shows to do in Florida before we head north.  My last show of this Florida season will be on Sunday, May 17, from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, at
Stump Pass Grill (I play there tomorrow, too). Continue reading →
