Just a quick note to let you know about a couple upcoming gigs:
WEST BEACH BAR & GRILL – May 29, 7:30-11:30
I’ll be playing some tunes at the West Beach Bar & Grill this Sunday, May 29, 7:30-11:30. Steve Gidora from The Wheat in the Barley and our mutual friend, Jan Sentell will also be performing some tunes plus we’ll join each other at various times as well for a jamboree.
Steve has been working hard recording a new CD of his originals which features ‘Medderick’ on lead vocals, myself on lead guitar and Jan on back up vocals. Many other Vancouver and White Rock based musicians such as ‘Ed Johnson’, ‘Mickey Hovan’, ‘Fanny Starchild’ and ‘Daryl Havers’ are also part of the project. We plan to bring a few of the songs to the fore this Sunday.
Several tracks from my newest release ‘Somewhere’, have continued to receive airplay on stations in Europe, the States, Canada and Australia. ‘The Shore’ in Vancouver has been very supportive and continues to play the tune ‘Soul Train Ride’. Peter, a DJ from OAK FM in Australia was kind enough to send along this short clip, proof that he has added the tune ‘Somewhere’ to his playlist. It’s always cool to hear one’s songs on the radio especially in another part of the world. Click here to hear the clip.
This Sunday, I’ll be performing songs from ‘Somewhere’ and my previous release ‘Rubber Room Day’, as well as a diverse offering of covers.
Along with Steve & Jan, I am looking forward to some musical fun, for my first time at the West Beach Bar and Grill.
THE WAG – Trio, June 4, 8:30-11:30
The trio will be playing at the WAG (Washington Avenue Grill) on June 4th, 8:30-11:30. It’s always an enjoyable, creative ride playing with the trio so come on by if you can. Lee Oliphant is on bass and Rick Clark is on drums.
On another exciting note, my daughter Amy and I have been co-writing a song that started as an expression of how Amy ‘feels’ about what has happened in her life as a result of her accident. We are looking to finish the writing in the next week or so and then we will video Amy and I performing it together. The process has been great therapy for both of us.
Wishing you all peace, health & happiness – – and some sunshine for more than just a day or two.
