Thank You Leon

Thank You Leon

It was an absolute honor to have been able to travel the world and to write and play music with the Legendary Leon Russell.

My musical journey with Leon was a truly wonderful time, but sadly my part of the tour has come to an end. The last five years has been a real blessing for me and my family. I’ve learned so much about music and songwriting and so much more… Knowledge that only the wisdom of more than 50 years in every part of the music business and 70 years on earth can impart.

Thank you Leon.


Awesome Bob Dylan Show

Awesome Show with Bob Dylan

 

The show with Bob Dylan was awesome! It was great to see the guys in the band and crew again! Also got to see a few fans from the tour last summer. We’re getting geared up to burn up the roads from coast to coast. See ya’ll out there!

 

Thank You For The Home Away From Home

Thanks For THe Home Away From Home

We had a fun time on our trip up to the northeast last week. I want to take a minute to say thanks to all the folks we met and made us feel at home and to all the folks at the venues who took great care of us!

We hope to see all of you again soon!

Thanks again to Frank for being a wonderful host for our off day on Long Island.

 

On The Road Again..

We’re getting ready to get back on the bus and add on some more mileage. I’m looking forward to rejoining all the boys in the band and making good music for the people! See ya’ll this week and next in Maine, New Hampshire and Long Island.

The June 1st Kaffeeklatsch show was another great night! Thanks Carole and Jeff and all who joined us!

The Gip’s show was a fantastic experience! Thanks to Ron and Sara Wiley and the Magic City Blues Society(also celebrating Ron’s B’day!)!

Thanks Gip and Jeff and Cindy Dunaway! and last but not least all the fine folks who came to Gip’s juke joint to celebrate the BLUES with us!

The Destin show at the Funky Blues Shack was fun. I got to see a handful of family that I don’t get to see very often and also some old friends that I never get to see it was really great that you all came! I’m glad the show happened. I thought we all might get washed out to sea before it was over. Thanks everybody at the Funky Blues Shack!

Late last month I went up to St. Louis(Glen Carbon) to the Wooden Nickle Pub and Grill and played an acoustic show with my pal Jack Twesten. I made a lot of new fans that night I think and a lot of new friends too! Thanks Jack and J’Deana for your help and hospitality! The next night I went up to the Argosy Casino in Alton, IL and saw Chuck Berry! I got to [briefly] meet Chuck! It was great meeting Charles Berry Jr and Ingrid Berry Clay and her daughter.. and all the guys in the band. I had a really good time and I’m so glad I was able to see it! Thank you

Dave Thomason thanks for making that happen! And thanks to my wife Greta for making the drive with me.
