Song of the Week (2/16/09)

Look The Other Way (Orio) (C) 2003


Request a Song for the Bluebird

Just rolled in after driving all night back from Panama City Beach, and I had a thought. Rather than me putting together my whole set list for The Bluebird, I thought I would open it up to all of you and see what you want to hear (for those of you attending). Even if you’re not attending, weigh in and let me know what songs you think I should play. The show will be recorded, and I plan on making an mp3 of it available, so even if you can’t make it, you can hear your song played on the recording! Leave a comment on this post. Requests have to be in by Thursday night (need practice time Friday in case any older songs get requested). Here’s a rough list of at least 3-4 songs I’m considering. We usually get to do 6-7 songs each in these rounds. Thanks for the help! 1) Feed The Addiction (pretty new tune) 2) Love Won’t Let Me (was a song of the week a little while back) 3) She Likes The Way That Feels (also a past song of the week) 4) Good Problems Just comment on this post with your requests!


Spring Tour Schedule Filling Up

I’m excited to say that the spring tour dates are starting to come together with road shows booked in Macon, GA, my hometown of Folsom, PA, and spring break week in Panama City Beach, FL. Also, working on some dates in Charlotte, NC. I have some shows booked here in Nashville as well, that will feature my original songs. Those of you that have been to my Tootsie’s shows know that we only do a handful of originals as part of those performances. The show at 12th & Porter on the 31st of March will be all originals off the upcoming album. The Goodfellers will be there backing me up and rocking along with me. I also have a writers’ round booked next week at The Bluebird and in March at Hotel Indigo. Hope to see some of you at those performances. As always, thanks for your continued support.
