I'm putting together another album. Hopefully released in April 2023.

(I might even play some harmonica on it. YAY !) Stay Tuned !

Now we get ready for 2023. It all starts in Jacksonville, Melrose & Tallahassee Fl and goes out from there.

I'm shooting for a lot of new venues and roadwork.

Open Mic Nights again;

I really don't attend these too much anymore because they are more of an amateur night and just friends getting together than anything else.

The initial intent of The Open Night Night was to highlight players to work their craft of songwriting and performance techniques in a limited time space to see how well it was received.

It has turned into an anything goes in most cases.

Folks getting up with no skills, can't memorize songs they have played for years, Have to force friends up with them to help cover their own mistakes, and some can't even tune their instrument, coughing horribly into the microphone, can't sing and the list goes on and on.

There are 2 that I do consider in North Florida when my time permits. They are both very controlled.

Here's some helpful hints,

Practice your material well, and have 4 songs ready to go.

Tune your instrument before your asked to get up.

Talk about your song and not about your new strings you put on, you hope you can sing the song, you've never played it in front of anyone .

Be confident of what your doing

Don't drink on stage

This is your time and your songs, Take charge. Avoid Playing Cover Songs !

When you see others get up, watch for their mistakes, so you know what to avoid.

Watch the customers reaction to others. Learn from mistakes.

Be assertive with your songs, this is an opportunity for you to shine, and don't screw it up.
