It’s been a lovely summer. There has been some time to catch up with old friends and embark on new adventures. I’m just recently back from New York – Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn to be more precise and am enjoying my new home in Galveston, Texas. (Google it)
One thing that remains constant is my love of playing music with my partner in crime, David Hargraves. He is enthralling.
We will be at it again soon enough on August 12th at one of our favourite venues, Mainly Drinks. Please check the calendar and make comments (if they are constructive) and let me know that you’re looking out for us.
It’s so important to me as a musician to be able to play music out in the public. This may seem like a no-brainer and if you’re not a working musician, it may not be something on your radar. I just wanted to take a moment to say “Thank You!” to the Venue owners and managers that provide (safe) places for people to come and listen to local musicians who may not otherwise be heard.
I’ve been playing music for quite a long time and can hardly describe the gratitude that I have for venues that provide this public service, and yes, I consider it a public service. Bringing art, music and culture to a community is, in my book, nothing short of philanthropy.
Mainly Drinks is one of these venues and Deb Gallington continues to provide this public service. Please support those that are supporting us!
Guess how I like to spend my Birthday Week?! Playing at Mainly Drinks! Yep. That’s right. It’s my birthday week. I am a flighty Aquarian, though, my friends tell me that I’m the most grounded one that they know.
I just returned from my beloved Brooklyn a few weeks ago and have already had the delight of playing some music with my partner, Dave Hargraves. I get to have him when he’s not off with Freddie Krc!
This week, I get to do my solo gig at Mainly Drinks in LaPorte. I couldn’t be more happy to play there. If you’ve been there before, you know the vibe is chill, the food is fabulous and the staff and owner are gracious. Of course, the music is STELLA!
Make reservations because this place is very popular…especially if I’m playing. Seriously. It gets packed. Here’s a link to make it easy.
