Thanks to Mary and everyone at the Namaste Café! I had a great time performing last night. There was a very receptive, supportive audience and the bonus of a guitar-playing sound man named Paul!
Since it was my first time in this room and a coffeehouse environment, I changed the set list a bit. I opened with King of Fools and segued into Moon Comes Around. For some reason, I’ve never thought to pair them together live even though they both reference a specific evening in Austin…
The rest of the set was from Confidential Reasons (This Cruel Rain, The Inside, Lonely Girl, and Someday) and then we closed with And I Did Not Know from the R & D Project recording.
It didn’t seem like a solo performance, though –Paul the sound guy added some tasteful Stratified textures from behind the sound board, and even took a few solos albeit hidden from the view of the audience. It created an intimate connection with the audience, including the Namaste regulars.
It was also fun sharing the evening with the other performers, including Mike V and his pal Steve.
We’ll do it again in early 2014!

In June of 1981, our band Dear John recorded six songs at the newly opened Sugar Creek Studios in Fenton, MO. From the session, we chose “Frustrated Conversation” and “I Don’t Want Her To Know” as the “most Power Pop”, and therefore the best choices for a 45 release. We recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of the release of that single, and now, all 6 songs from that session are available.
There is an extremely Limited Edition 30th Anniversary CD available via CD Baby or purchase a digital downloads from iTunes.
I’m really excited to be performing at Venice Santa Monica Free Methodist Church’s Music Café Night this Saturday, May 18th. It’s going to be a great night of music, coffee, food, desserts, worship and praise. Also appearing will be David Gaulton and Seven Years.
I’ll be joined by Gina Fletcher (drums) and EJ Wells (bass) for a full 45 minute set. And we are debuting a batch of new songs! Don’t miss it – we go on at 7:15pm…
Hope to see you there!
