August 16th “Not My First Go Round”

Back in good ol’ NC again.  We had a great trip to Illinois and Wisconsin.  The people there are so nice.  I’ve been there many times to see my friend there and usually to play a show and see a concert.  Like today’s song says “it’s not my first go round.”

August 10th “Happy to Be Home Again”

We won.  North Carolina finally beat Tennessee in the Battle of the Smokies. Mt. Mitchell golf club was fabulous.  The course was perfect for a Ryder Cup style competition, the accommodations were excellent, the food was superb and the fellowship was a lot of fun. I played some golf songs Sunday night for everybody, then I actually participated in the Karaoke session last night, which I really have never done before. Now I’m finally home, first time in six days.  It feels nice.   That’s why I made this quick little instrumental to celebrate and to give myself a chance to rest before I hit the road again tomorrow.   Thanks for listening!

July 24th “You Probably Already Know”

I’ve  had a brief Saturday morning at home for the first time in a while.   Then I’m heading back out to play tonight, out of town of course.   It’s Belle Cher weekend too, I miss it every year unless I’m playing in it or in a bar up here.  Oh well, maybe next year.

“You Probably Know Already” was the first thing that popped out when I sat down to write today.  First thought best thought, they always say.

June 27th “Mind Vacation”

Day two of my two day vacation.  It’s not so sweet knowing you’ve got to go home soon.  But then again I have a lot of obligations, so it’s also bitter sweet (ie recording a song for everyday in 2010).  Being creative, I tried to be totally in the moment, which was beach house vacation-style with my writing.  If I’m not being topical to my situations I encounter occasionally, how will I ever look back on this year years from now and remember what I was doing.

Thanks for listening!!

June 10th “Some of that Something Something”

What a week.   I’m finally back home after an entire week out of town.  Needless to say today is catch up day on the song a day project.  I’ve actually had them written and some partially recorded, so I should be posting three more songs today.

This week is worth noting I guess (since this blog thing is supposed to be somewhat personal).  I started out with three heavy days recycling in Morganton (55 miles away), then after work Wednesday, my band performed at a grand opening for Audubon Place apartment complex in Arden, Thursday night we performed on the Morganton square for the Young Professionals then went across town and guest hosted at Momma Sarah’s a new venue, Friday I played in a golf tournament with my brother (shot 65 2-man captions choice) then played a show at Yianni’s,  Saturday we teed off early at Quaker Meadows (shot 66 2-man best ball) and lost by a stroke,  I then went to Mimosa Hills Golf course and performed for their Member Guest, finished and ran out of there to step on stage 15 minutes later at Momma  Sarah’s for a 4 hour Chris Cates & the Master Plan show.   It was a lot of fun actually and besides a few yelled profanities at Quaker, I had a pretty good week.

“Some of that Something Something” is another funky one.   I seem to be trending that way lately.
