One of my favorite gigs is the Short North Gallery Hop. There’s nothing quite like playing music right out on the street. Unfortunately, I’ve been so busy I haven’t been able to perform at many Hops this year. So I was really happy to be free for December’s Holiday Hop. And, wow, what a great night! With temperatures nearing 60 degrees, I had to keep reminding myself it was really December.
I had some great crowds, lots of smiling faces, and plenty of audience participation. Thanks very much to Bill Bullock for taking this photo.
No posts lately. I’ve been busy! This weekend is no exception. Tonight I’ll be rocking with Chris Lute and Luxury Fox at The Last National Banque in Maysville, KY. Saturday evening I’ll be back at Rosa and Rocco’s in Marion, OH. Sunday afternoon I’m playing for Cropwalk in Portsmouth, OH with old friends Doug Parsley and The Interns.
Join me this Saturday in Marion Ohio, when Rosa & Rocco’s Italian Kitchen and Steakhouse will host the 1st Annual Rosa & Rocco’s Summer Italian Fest! There will be nice weather, great food and live music all day and night. I’ll be performing from 6-8PM.
The folks at Rosa’s have been planning this for a long time, it’s shaping up to be quite the extravaganza!
This Saturday I’ll be doing a show in Portsmouth, Ohio, at the Port City Pub and Cafe. That’s right, it’ll be something of a homecoming. I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends and some family too. I hope you’ll be there too.
Now that’s what I call hot! I performed at a furiously hot private event on July 4th. During a week without electricity, I topped it off with a 3PM outdoor show in Newton Falls, Ohio, where the temperature weighed in at a healthy 99 degrees Fahrenheit. Still, we had such a good time that I played for five hours, and we agreed to do it again next year.
I had a real good time playing music with my old friend Todd Martin at Dakota’s Roadhouse in Jackson OH Friday night. Todd and I go way, way, way back, all the way back to when I was about 21 years old and played in his punk rock band. We’re both a little rounder and grayer now, but we can still rock.
