News & Announcements

September-Early October Shows 

* Thursday, September 15th, The Dawdlers 3.0 (i.e., now a quartet with percussionist Jeff Campitelli in our ranks) return to Kinder's in Benicia, next to the weekly farmer's market on 1st St., from 6-9 PM. Should still be nice weather.

* Sunday afternoon, October 2nd we'll again play the now and FINALLY beered-up Lucca Beer Garden (also on 1st St. in Benicia), from 1-4 PM, and closing out the 2016 Benicia World Tour! A great hang on a Sunday afternoon (and we're not bad, either).   http://beniciaheraldonline.com/lucca-to-open-beer-garden-live-music-venue/ Lucca Bar & Grill, 439 First Street, Benicia, CA 94510 www.luccabar.com - 707.344.7096
Thursday, September 29th, Drew & I will make our first appearance at Silo's in Napa, 7 PM. We might be the only Lennon & McCartney tribute group around (anywhere, really), so come help us have a good maiden voyage there. We sing purdy good together, and it's Napa; how can you lose?

* On Saturday, October 8th, I'll play solo again here in my Martinez backyard, at The Clubhouse Grill, 6:30-9:30 PM, with perhaps a guest sit-in or two (one never knows). 528 Center Ave., Martinez, CA (925) 957-6908

August Shows 

* On Sunday, 8/21, I will be performing solo, doing my own songs (mostly) at Sam Rudin's new Berkeley venue, The Back Room, and opening for my friend and associate Michael McNevin, super talented Folk/Americana storytelling singer-songwriter.

I'll play for about an hour at 4 o'clock. (No alcohol sold, but one can bring it in.) This'd be a good one to come to, one I could use some support on, both for day itself and so I and/or The Dawdlers might get invited back, and because the venue's new,
and could

Upcoming Solo Shows 

Have a couple of shows coming up where I'll play all by myself, (very unusual these days):
  • One is a slightly last minute thing, tomorrow night, Saturday, July 16th, here in my Martinez backyard, at The Clubhouse Grill, 6:30-9:30 PM. They started music recently on Saturdays, and have asked me to fill the empty slot. I figured I can't beat the commute, and this gives me a chance to dust off my Cat Stevens, James Taylor and other mothballed tunes. So, if you live in Contra Costa and like sports

Song used by Alchemy Radio 

<!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } A:link { so-language: zxx } -->

I have recently had the happy honor of one of my recordings being used by my favorite of all the bright lights in the alternative media world, Irishman & musician/DJ John Gibbons, for his show Alchemy Radio. The recording is my most recent, of the song, “It's a Bit (Over)”, and it appears in its entirety at the end of Mr. Gibbons most recent interview of Australian Max Igan (click HERE for interview).

Shows in June & July 

* NEXT Thursday, June 23rd, The Dawdlers return to Kinder's in Benicia, next to the weekly farmer's market on 1st St., from 6-9 PM, but, in our midst this time will be Benician and well known whacker of objects in time (long time drummer of Joe Satriani's), Mr. Jeff Campitelli.  Yayyy!  Then..... 

* Sunday afternoon, July 17th The (Campitelli enhanced) Dawdlers will play a brand new music venue, also on 1st St. in Benicia, the Lucca Beer Garden, outdoors, from about 2:30 - 5:30 (give or take a half-hour - firm time TBD), in what we hope will be the first of many performances there. It should be a really nice venue, with a beautiful setting, and great afternoon light, a nice raised stage, an outdoor cabana bar, etc. Should be one of the better spots we play, and one of the better places for musicians to play, in general. 

(If you're inclined to see any upcoming shows, we'd be grateful to see you at this one, as it's a great spot and we'd like to make a strong first showing.)

From the venue:

New Recording: It's a Bit (Over)  Podcast

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, my latest recording It's a Bit (Over), credits here, made decidedly Celtic, or maybe undecidedly Bluegrass by my esteemed Dawdlers colleagues and longtime friends, Tom Fleming and Vlad Malinovsky (same tandem from The Best That You Can Do). Tom pretty much ran the table with an embarrassment of riches display of musical prowess, playing around 50 instruments one night in about 10 minutes, and again making me sound like I know what I'm doing. Vlad dug out the violin he…

Armando's 

A very pleasant night at Armando's this past Sunday with The Sunday Paper (and a very short commute for me - around 78 seconds).
A few photos....
