Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving. 

Sometimes the words do not come easily. 

That's where music comes in. 

Next music gig: 

December 9th in San Francisco has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. In other words, I have a head cold and am sure, since I know how much time it takes my voice to heal, that I cannot do this gig. 

Please accept my apologies, and I hope to see you soon. 

Meanwhile, go check out Talley Up at Mac's at 19 Broadway on December 1st. 

1232 Grant Avenue

4 pm - 8 pm 

Playing on this one: 

Arne on bass

Dave Powell on guitar

Jim Talley on keyboards

Roy Blumenfeld on drums. 

It will be a jam, on that you can be sure.

New Gig, New Tunes, New Album Release in the Works

 Hey Everybody! 

Hope you are doing well - we are plugging along, riding life's ups and downs, doing our best to create more ups than downs. Thank goodness for music! We have a gig on Saturday afternoon at - you guessed it -- The Saloon! 4 - 8 - don't be late... (pm, of course, otherwise it would be morning!) 

Sharing some photos from Halloween via an embedded post from facebook -- I had fun playing some old and new favorites with Susan Copperman, Stan Erhart, Michael Warren, Randy Hayes, and Ben "King" Perkoff, along with his cousin, David, who flew in from Austin! It was as if 25 years had just melted away. Myron asked me to decorate the place for the occasion, so I obliged!  :

Anyway, I am headed to Mac's in Fairfax tonight, my new favorite hang. Mitch  Woods is back from the Legendary Blues Cruise, and Randy McDonald from Tommy Castro and the Painkillers is going to be there as well. If you stop by, be sure to buy a cocktail or a mocktail or two - we need to support the venues that support live music!

Soul Connection

 Hi All, 

Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us on Saturday. 

I am still buzzing all over from the soul connection that can only come from these moments that we are able to share the joy of music with you all. I am so grateful.  

Dave and Pat were having so much fun playing off each other, they complemented each other so well. I did miss Richard's mellifluous tones, but he had to be out of town for this one. 

Not sure if we will ever be able to do that again, but it sure was fun. So much fun. The interactive response with the audience was so overwhelming at times, Arne was laughing out loud. 

We all need more of this - soul connection -- so, we are working on making more of these types of moments. 

Share some joy and kindness whenever and wherever you can, OK? 

I wish you the best week ever.

Recap: Live on the Avenue!

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Live on the Avenue!  We dodged the rain and it cleared up just in time for us to play music for a very appreciative crowd. I am writing tunes for a new album, and our next live show is scheduled for October 14th, in the afternoon, from 4 - 8pm at the world infamous Saloon in San Francisco's North Beach! 
If I get any additional music gigs this month, I will post them here. 

Life's Little Reminders

Every once in a while, life sends us little reminders of how we should be spending our time, and what is best left behind us. Of course, we each perceive words and actions differently, according to our own past experiences and where we are on our personal journey. Admittedly, while I've spent a lot of time honing my craft in private, the past dozen years have been a period of personal reflection, with some weird twists and turns. 
That said, it feels good to be singing and writing once again. I have a few social media marketing clients, which works best for me right now. 

Sharing this recent X post from Anne Lamott. It made me laugh out loud - at myself. 
That's all for now.
