Greetings, A hearty thank you to all who came out to Thee Parkside recently for the Twang Sunday show - what a blast! We can't wait to do it again later this summer. Love those late afternoon/early evening shows! Speaking of which, there's another one coming up next Sunday, March 15th at the Bazaar Cafe. Thanks to Daylight Savings time, you can come to the show, listen to all the great music and still get home before dark. Get there early to hear the delightful songs of Joel Murach at 6 pm, and stay till the end to hear Ted Savarese's twangy, jazzy guitar licks & tunes. I am a big fan of both these fine gentlemen and their excellent music, and it's a treat to share a show with them! In between sets, I'll play some songs, maybe even some new ones(!), and will be joined by John Shiurba and Berge Thomasian. Rumor has it Ted will be sitting in with me on a few tunes also. As always, there's no cover and all ages are most welcome! Bazaar Cafe is at 5927 California St., San Francisco, between 21st & 22nd avenues. 6 pm to 8:30 pm. Then on the following Saturday, March 21st, ring in Spring w/ Loretta Lynch at The Rite Spot! We'll be opening for our pal, the above-mentioned Ted Savarese and his musical partner Ashley Adams, otherwise known as Octomutt. It'll just be the ladies & Dan for this show, and we may have a new song or two! Come on out and have some dinner and enjoy a fine night of music. No cover for this one either, friends... perfect for these economic times! The Rite Spot is at 2099 Folsom St. in San Francisco, at 17th. We play at 9 pm, followed by Octomutt. Looking ahead, please help us spread the word to your Southern California friends - Loretta Lynch is headed South! We'll be playing two dates in L.A. on May 2nd & May 3rd and we could use a little help getting the word out. More details coming about that later. Hope to see you soon, friends!
