New Braunfels was packed with people tonight and littered with bachelors, bachelorettes, and birthdays! Mikey Gammon & I performed for all of them this evening. Some danced. Some showed lots of skin. Some drank. All partied.

I played at a really cool spot with a really cool guy tonight. Middleton Brewery is in San Marcos, Texas, and Ian Lee is the guitarist I performed with. Lots of dogs all over the place, people enjoying craft beer and original music (along with our favorite cover tunes) were all in order tonight. We'll be back at Middleton soon!
The Hill Country Gentlemen took to New Braunfels this evening to perform our brand of Americana. The guys sounded great as usual, and the sound system had a good mix on us. Several fans were in the audience, and Kevin jumped off stage at one point to dance with the people on the floor! Fun times!!!

So tonight in New Braunfels, a woman told me that when she went to Disney World, they wouldn't let her use her selfie stick, so she came up with a "foot selfie". Then, she climbed up on the piano to demonstrate. Do you see the picture? Yep. She took a selfie, while on the piano, with me in her background, with her foot. Impressive!

At midnight, it was drummer Mikey Gammon's birthday, so of course, I had to sing to him regularly thoughout the evening. He even took a big ol' birthday drum solo for the folks in Kyle, TX tonight! We had lots of odd ball requests, but we played a good 90% of them. See everyone next Tuesday!

Roger Glenn and I had a big crowd at Moonshine & Ale in New Braunfels this evening! My wife even came out to the show to take a bunch of photos for my new website, www.allrequestpiano.com I hope to have her photos up on the site in the next few days. Thanks for all the requests tonight, people!

I had a busy day today! I got up, ate breakfast, ran (& walked) 4 miles, showered, went to the post office, tailor, grocery and Tantra Coffeehouse (for a toddy), came home & had lunch, mixed a song, started a website, learned two new tunes for the all-request piano show, had dinner and then headed to Kyle, TX to perform the first of an ongoing request piano show from 9pm-midnight with Mikey Gammon on drums! The show went well with many requests, and we'll return next week, but right now, I'm tired.

Lots of booty shaking tonight in New Braunfels to the funky tunes Chris Wallis and I performed for the energetic crowd! The club was packed, and I had fun with Mr. Wallis just playing randomly requested tunes from the audience. We had lots of familiar faces in the crowd, and one gigantic bachelorette party. Everyone was in a great mood, and I had fun jamming with Chris!

Taxi and I took requests tonight in San Marcos. It was a pretty fun show because Taxi and I were playing lots of random tunes, ones we haven't played together before. Besides some bizarre declarations from the crowd about being in Pennsylvania, the night went smoothly, and all ended well! And no....
You are not in Pennsylvania.

I played some odd requests tonight in New Braunfels. Very good songs, but odd requests. ELO "Don't Let Me Down" was one. Good, but odd. Rolling Stones "Paint It Black". Love it, but very rarely gets requested. INXS, Johnny Nash, Roger Miller, and Robert Palmer plus many others were given to me all evening!

Big show in Fort Stockton, Texas for Howl2Go (Howl At The Moon) with some great musicians and an extremely request-heavy crowd tonight! My dueling partner was none other than Gray Gregson, and we had the talented rhythm section of Kevin Humphry (bass) and Chris Wallis (drums) working with us. The crowd was very appreciative at the end of the evening, so much so in fact that we played an extra hour! Now, off to bed so I can drive the five-hour trip home in the morning.

Taxi and I had a strong crowd all night in San Marcos tonight! People were in a classic rock mood judging by their requests. Styx, Journey, Rolling Stones, and the like were requested and played all evening for the recent graduates of Texas State. Hope to see you next Friday at Taxi's!

Slow night in New Braunfels this evening, but I still had fun with the folks who hung out with me! Still had as many requests as if the bar were standing room only, so I know people were enjoying the show. I'll be back next Thursday, so tell your friends!

Mikey Gammon and I re-teamed in New Braunfels for a great request show tonight! We had an excellent crowd. Mikey jumped up to the front of the stage for a song while I played drums, I pulled a bachelorette up with me at one point, and a few birthday people celebrated on the piano with me, and that was just fifteen minutes of our three-hour show!

Mikey Gammon and I performed in San Antonio tonight in the basement club called "On The Rocks". People requested songs they wanted to hear, and even danced a bit! Mikey kept the energy up, and I had had fun performing with him. Now, off to bed...two gigs today and I'm worn out.
