Greetings..  Summer is almost over, and the kids are headed back to school..  That means it will be cooling off soon, (Thank God), and the clubs will start filling back up..  I've had lots of gigs this summer with many different bands and musicians..  I have been really blessed to be busy as a working musician..  MOTION has been rocking at Motorheads in Mcdonough.  The band is currently putting together new promo, and will soon be playing at many different clubs.  The band sounds great, with Fernie and David Haney at the controls..  Ron Kimble is back performing again after a long bout with pneumonia, and I have performed with him several times..  League Of Decency has played several corporate gigs, and did a concert in Villa Rica..  The League plays all styles including jazz, swing, blues, rock, and funk.. I have played with Heaven Davis at concerts with Buddy Guy, and an outdoor show at the Mall of Georgia..  BIG TROUBLE had it's debut at the end of July, and will have more gigs coming up..  I have also been busy playing solo gigs, and will be recording with Marty Kearns at his studio in Virginia Highlands coming up..  I've also been writing some new tunes, and teaching quite a bit.. It is good to be busy..
Thursday nights are a great way to start the weekend early at Monterrey's Mexican Restaurant on Buford Highway in Doraville..  It is the home of my regular, solo acoustic gig, and one of the highlights of my week..  We always have a great party with margarita specials, the best in Mexican cuisine, and plenty of cold beer in frozen mugs..  The song list is always wide open, and you can hear just about anything and everything..  The music starts at 7:45..  Come on down!!
I have a new solo gig every other Wednesday night at the Wooden Nickel Pub in Tucker.. It is located at the corner of Pleasantdale Road and Norcross Tucker Road..  I played there in bands many years ago..  It is a cool place, with a very diverse crowd..  I play just about everything at this gig, so it is always a fun time..  Music starts at 8:00 p.m., and I play till midnight..
Some upcoming gigs include solo acoustic performances at the Wooden Nickel on August 9th, August 23rd, September 6th, and September 20th..  Ron Kimble on August 11th, and the first two weekends in September at Glenda's Bar and Grill in Walnut Grove..  I will be performing with the League Of Decency at Evergreen in Stone Mountain Park for a corporate function on August 12th..  BIG TROUBLE will be at Hank and Jerry's Tavern in Conyers on August 25th and 26th..  MOTION will be rocking at Motorheads in Mcdonough on September 22nd and 23rd.. 
I will be taking a much needed vacation from August 16th till the 22nd in Jacksonville Beach Florida..  I am ready for the beach!!  I always look forward to seeing my friends there..
Thanks for visiting my website..  I hope to see you at some gigs..  I have discovered many things in the past few months..  I always count my blessings, and I am so thankful for the many friends I have..  Life is so short..  I wish all of you peace, and much happiness..  Make sure to check the calendar for any gig changes..  Stay tuned!!
