Looking forward to the Crooksville Pottery, and St. Nick Festivals! The previous gigs at The Moose Lodge in Newark, and The American Legion in Zanesville have went great. Met some new fans, and had some good exposure in new venues and cities. Jacob Vaughn on drums is doing an awesome job. Thanks to my cousin Brian Spires, and John Mohr for their bass work and sound equipment. Shania Huffman has been doing a solid job on the many sounds the keyboard, and synth, bring to my music.

The show went really well Friday night. It was a pleasure working with Terry Lee Goffee, Kay Goffee, and the band. They really had the Johnny Cash Tribute nailed. I heard many people comment on how good of a singer Terry is. And I enjoyed hearing the band arrangements from the Johnny Cash records. I'd like to thank my cousin Brian Spires, and his friend Brian Starner for running the sound. Thanks to my band Tyler Clark, John Mohr, and Shania Huffman. It was great to see Kayla Myers on the front row, Stephanie Harnetty, Jeff & Robin Vaughn, John Hibler and his wife, Crystal Grubaugh and her granddaughter, and my family to mention a few. Sorry if I'm forgetting anyone! I hope you like your Tee, Kayla! And lastly, I would like to thank Stacy Clawson & Dennis for having me. And, of course the amazing apple pie Dennis! Good enough to be mentioned on stage! Hopefully I'll get the chance to do something more with the Philo Band Boosters.

Friday night's show went well. Looking forward to Saturday night. Busy day tomorrow and week to come! Come on out tomorrow night. Tickets are $15 and the show starts at 8pm with some pre-show entertainment from Tara Prouty on the piano. Backing up the Blues Brothers was fun. We all wore black sunglasses and fedoras. Pretty sweet, haha.
Check out the link below for some info on the November, 6th Fundraiser Concert:
Accepted an invitation to perform at the Morgan County Fairgrounds as part of the MoCo Extravaganza. I'll be in the 2-4 time slot with my band (Tyler Clark, John Mohr, Shania Huffman, and Braden Israel). Honestly, I don't know any information about it, other than the local band "Slated Moon" will be performing there as well. Thanks to Thaddeus Fields, who asked me to be a part of the event. I will find out more information and do my best to keep you updated. And, don't forget to pick up a copy of my latest album "Live @ The Smiling Goat" at the show!

Today Tyler and I ran over some things outside of the regular practice. Apologize and Counting Stars. Some original music as well. Trying to get a better rhythm down on things, with better overall flow. Tomorrow looks to be a good rehearsal. Anyone who ever wants to come sometime to a rehearsal is welcome. Just ask me ahead of time. Some people have wanted to do that in the past. Have a good week everybody!
