Sunday, FEBRUARY 7th, 8pm to 11pm, Songwriter Sundays Series, YOSHI’S LOUNGE, SAN FRANCISCO
This will be a cool gig! So once you are done watching the Super Bowl, come on over to Yoshi’s on Fillmore in San Francisco for the seminal Songwriter Sundays Series. Or if you don’t like football, or if the score is 63 to 3 at the end of the first half, come early and join us for sushi at Yoshi’s beautiful restaurant. I will be sharing the stage with two other local songwriters who will probably be hipper, younger and edgier than me. I am honored to be selected for this amazing series, which features a lot of up and coming songwriters, particularly since it tends to feature those young, hip, edgy, cool songwriters. I get to be the Willie Nelson of the bunch. Even if you can’t stay up all the way to 11pm on a school night, come by and catch a couple of sets. And you can even eat in the lounge so you could catch the show while consuming your favorite morsels and beverages. Julie Baker and Bob Hahn will be joining me for some of the songs. Paul and his electric bass are outlawed since it is supposed to be all acoustic (but we have seen a couple of cheaters) and we can only have three on stage at a time. Sorry Paul…we will miss you on stage.

Saturday, FEBRUARY 13th, 6pm to 9pm, DAVENPORT ROADHOUSE, DAVENPORT
We really enjoyed our gigs in January at this beautiful restaurant/inn, located 100 yards from the ocean, on Highway 1. Nestled into an artist colony, 11 miles north of Santa Cruz, the Roadhouse provides great food, beverages and accommodations. Again, I will be accompanied by some or all of the usual suspects, and, as always, there will be a surprise visitor or two. Another great spot to come for dinner, appetizers or dessert and enjoy a beverage of your choice.

Thursday, FEBRUARY 18th, 8pm, the new FREIGHT & SALVAGE, BERKELEY!
I spent the past three years helping to build the new Freight & Salvage and I am excited to play there for the first time on February 18th. I will be performing an opening set for the legendary City Folk
which features Keith Greeninger, Roger Feuer and Kimball Hurd. If you haven’t had a chance to come to the new Freight yet, this is a great opportunity to experience the comfy chairs, the great sound, and the beautiful listening room. The new Freight is located in the heart of downtown Berkeley near BART, and there is plenty of parking available. Also, there are a number of good restaurants in the area. Keith and Roger will accompany me for a few songs, along with Bob, Paul and Julie. This promises to be a special night.
You can buy tickets on-line
- or, if you forget
, you can buy them at the door.

Friday, FEBRUARY 26th, 7pm to 9pm, RUBY HILL WINERY, PLEASANTON
This will be my first time at the Ruby Hill Winery. Should be fun—music and good wine….hmmm… how could that not be fun! This is one of my first gigs in the Pleasanton area, so if you are nearby come and join us. I think we'll have the usual list of suspects playing with me: co-writer Bob Hahn on harmonica, Julie Baker on harmony and Paul Fifield on bass—but I am not sure if I told them about the gig yet. We are an informal bunch after all. My friend Joe Wilcox is driving all the way from Santa Barbara and he will be sitting in on a few tunes, if he gets there in time!

Saturday, FEBRUARY 27th, 8pm to 9pm, FIRST STREET CAFÉ, BENICIA
Have I already said how much I love to play at First Street Café? I like to get there early, have a nice dinner downstairs, then climb upstairs and have some fun. January’s gig was one of the best we have ever had. The building oozes charm and is set on Benicia’s historic main street. The service is wonderful as are the food, beverages and atmosphere. If you haven’t experienced this jewel, come by and join us (or come back again if you have already been here). Julie and Bob will be there (Paul is playing at another gig that night, for which we may eventually learn to forgive him). Joe Wilcox may be there as well.
