So we’re on the last half of the tour, and there’s only 5 shows left. Tonight’s show in Oklahoma City is going to be a winner (Follow that link for tickets). Playing with Shane Henry and Maggie McClure who I had the pleasure of meeting in the green room at an event in LA. They are both wicked talented, and will definitely turn heads. I’m playing at a spot known as the Blue Door, which is the Singer-Songwriter place to be in OKC. (Kinda like Hotel Cafe to LA Songwriters.)
Then, it’s a 12 hour/all-night drive to Durango, Colorado for a show with a few of the members of the Durango Songwriter community. I’ll be playing at a spot called the Derailed Saloon which is a GREAT venue. The booker at the venue said he loved my voice, and booked me even though I’d never played there before, and I’ve never even been to Colorado. I’m hoping for a good turn out and some beautiful scenery.
Las Vegas is the next stop, and the time keeps changing for the show. I’ll be playing a free show at 7:40 at the MANDALAY BAY House of Blues. (Don’t go to the other one… cause I won’t be there…) Michael Soli puts on these shows called “the Acoustic Strip”, and he’s been a good friend over the years. He’s the one who helped me “open” for Joss Stone, and I’m excited to see him again. My good buddy Don Chareunsy will also be there, and I miss that big gay guy. 😀 He used to work for the Union Tribune, and was a huge help with getting me on the front of the Night and Day section back in 2008.
Then it’s a 5 hour drive back to San Diego for America’s Finest Beer Festival and Big Mike Vs. the Con. I’ll be playing with Kory and Chris at the AFBF, and look forward to meeting some new friends who skip work for the 4:00 show. 😀
Mark Christopher Lawrence (Big Mike on NBC’s Chuck) takes on ComicCon, with fellow comics Vicki Barbolak, Lester Barrie, Jimmy Burns, Chris Clobber, Scott Krinsky and Scott Wood. I’ve met many of these comics, and I guarantee it’ll be a fun time. I’m opening the show with a few tunes, and I’m excited to be a part of it. Mark has been instrumental to my “positive” attitude in Los Angeles. Who would have thought I’d be sharing the stage with 2 peeps from CHUCK??? 😀
I hope you are doing well, and I hope you can make it out to one of the shows. Follow the links for tickets!
