Heather and I played for the second time tonight at Rockin J. Request after request hit the piano, both in analog and digital forms, and we played them all! We swapped between piano and drums about every half hour, which is always fun. Heather is my perfect partner, and the crowd loves our show. We got a steady stream of compliments after we finished, which made me feel great!
I played Live Band Karaoke in New Braunfels, TX, with Pancho Garza and Greg Galindo tonight. This was supposed to be Wassailfest tonight, and although it was canceled, people were still out for the lighting of the circle. Heather and I will return to Moonshine & Ale for piano bar this Saturday night.
My show on QK on Facebook tonight was full of friends and fans, and my partner Heather even jumped on for a bit! I like when people are involved in the show and chatting to each other while requesting songs. It makes me feel good. Thanks everyone for hanging out tonight!
Oooooo, it was a cold one in Johnson City, TX, tonight! I warmed up with a glass of wine on the patio and played a bunch of requests from 5p-8p. I was loving all the songs folks were giving me by artists like The Beatles, The Band, Dr. John, Thin Lizzy, and Phil Collins, plus a bunch more. After the show, I went around and saw the amazing light displays all over town before heading home.
New Braunfels was full of people, all requesting tunes tonight. Ryan played drums for Heather and I as we ran through all of the songs. Heather is an amazing friend and musician, and I’m so happy whenever we share the stage. I’ve got respect for Ryan, too, for keeping up with all the random tunes we were throwing his way. After the show, we made a stop at Buc-ee’s for some snacks and to say goodbye until next weekend for more fun.
Tonight was our first night at Rockin J Piano Bar in Cedar Park, TX. Heather and I had fun, as usual, performing everyone’s requests. The owners were really nice and very complimentary of our show, which was great to hear. We have a couple more dates on the books at this new venue, and we’re looking forward to a good working relationship with the club!
Heather and I drove to The Allen Farmhaus in New Braunfels to perform at the ceremony of Samantha Bartos and Brandon Ikels. It was held in an open-air venue, and the ceremony was beautiful! The temperature dropped just before they started and it threatened to rain, but everyone stayed dry and cool. I’ve know Sam and Brandon for several years now, and I’m so honored they asked me to come perform. I included a picture from last night where they joined us on stage for Live Band Karaoke because I love that they do things like karaoke together. Side note: I’m proud Brandon was able to keep his shirt on through the whole ceremony. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
Happy thanksgiving! My birthday show in New Braunfels was a little crazy tonight. Good thing Heather came to Moonshine & Ale with me tonight because our drummer was a little late, so I jumped on drums for the first part of the evening and she played keys. Pancho played guitar and when Greg arrived, he took over the drums, I went to keys, and Heather jumped on bass. We had lots of random singers, and we backed them as we do every Thursday for Live Band Karaoke!
The show in New Braunfels for our pre-Thanksgiving celebration went fine tonight (except for me forgetting the words to “Pour Some Sugar On Me”)! Heather and I had fun with the tons of requests we were given. She is a joy to work with, and we spark so well off of each other. We were happy to have a mid-week show, and also super happy to have a weekend of fun planned together. I hope everyone has a great thanksgiving, and we’ll return to Moonshine & Ale tomorrow for Live Band Karaoke after turkey!
Thanks once again to Quarantine Keys for having me perform on another Wednesday night! I had a chance to talk to several people online that I haven’t seen in a little while, and they asked for some fun tunes. I always like playing 80s songs, blues, and Dr. John, and that’s a lot of what I had tonight. Now, I’m on my way to New Braunfels, Texas, to play with my partner Heather for a pre-Thanksgiving show!
