Gray Gregson and I played the Kingsman Ball in Corpus Christi last night. We had fun out by the pool with all the good folks in formal attire. Gray and I took turn turns playing tunes, and sometimes, playing our electric drum kit. My favorite request of the night was from a man who asked if I know how to play Tipitina. Yes. Yes, I do.

I DJed the City Of Austin's Spring Fling today! It was a gorgeous day to be out in the park, especially while listening to some Motown and more. My wife was in attendance, which was another great perk of today's gig. Thanks to the City for having me out today!

I played a solo set today at Jack's in San Marcos for a "Save The Stage" benefit. Jack's has always been great to DHG, so I always go lend a hand when possible. If you want to hear what I played, I broadcast my set on DanHolmesGroup's Facebook page. Go support live music!
Chris Wallis and I had a great crowd in New Braunfels tonight. Three bachelorette parties and and a ton of requests made the night fly by. I was moved to wear all purple in honor of Prince, and the crowd was ready to sing his hits with me. We ended up playing "Cream", "1999", "Raspberry Beret", "Little Red Corvette", "Kiss", and "Purple Rain" twice. Thank you to the crowd for singing all of his tunes with me. It was a good healing session.

DanHolmesGroup played a couple hours of funky music in Austin, TX tonight. Kevin Humphry (bass), Ian Lee (guitar), and Chris Wallis (drums) are some of my favorite guys to make music with. No matter how long in between shows, these fellas make it seem like they play these tunes daily. Thank you to Curtis and the staff at Evangeline Cafe for being so good to us each time we're in Austin!

Moonshine & Ale was packed tonight! Chris Wallis and I played so many tunes, I lost count. I like playing shows like this one, because everyone was in such a good mood, and that feeling is infectious. Chris is always fun to play with, so that made the mood even better. Thanks to all the birthdays, engagements, and bachelorettes out partying tonight!!!

Danny Smith played piano tonight in New Braunfels, and I backed him up on the drums! I had fun with Danny, playing all the random tunes the folks brought up to the piano tonight. I'll be back tomorrow night, and I'll be on piano, with Chris Wallis on drums! Come on out, new people!!!

Mikey Gammon caught on fire tonight in New Braunfels. I put him out with the water from the vase holding two dozen roses from a fan who left it as a way of thanking me for reuniting their cat. A shooting star was spotted above the building across the street, but it turned out to be a Roman Candle which broke through the main glass window and struck Mikey, causing the fire. Yep. That's exactly how our April 1st gig went in detail.
