Mikey Gammon and I rounded out our weekend together in Waco, TX at Muddle. We had a laid-back show for most of the evening, and the crowd really kicked into high gear during our last hour. I had fun trying a bunch of new tunes with Mikey this weekend! Thanks to all who hung out with us!

Awesome night in New Braunfels this evening with Mikey Gammon! We had many first-time-for-me requests, including Peter Frampton's "Show Me The Way", Rockwell's "Somebody's Watching Me", Harry Connick Jr's "Whisper Your Name" and many others. Mikey killed it on Led Zeppelin's "Rock & Roll", and everyone brought out the lights on their phones for Prince's "Purple Rain". It was a good night.

Even though it was storming off and on, people were out having fun tonight in Kyle, TX. I had a bunch of great requests ranging from Frank Sinatra to Queen. I also had a special guest, Bill Forrest, sit in for a couple tunes. I'm looking forward to the next show at Grind House!

Rock Coreys made a fine bunch of grooves tonight in New Braunfels! The rhythm section was funky and the tunes sounded fresher than they did in 1986. Corey on guitar made an amazing amount of funky noise which made my job easy on keys. See you next week at Moonshine & Ale!

Mikey Gammon and I performed our piano-drums request show tonight in New Braunfels to a huge and diverse crowd! Things picked up as the night went on, and by the end, the stage was flooded with birthdays, anniversaries, bachelorettes, and dancers. Mikey sounded great this evening, and it was a pleasure performing with him.

The debut 80s night in New Braunfels with Rock Coreys was totally tubular tonight! Corey Holmes, Corey Humphrey, Corey Resnick, and Corey Galindo made beautiful vintage music together. The crowd was energized, and lots of old fans came by to dance and party with the band. There was even an air guitar competition held during break! Every Wednesday, Rock Coreys will light up the night at Moonshine & Ale. I feel fortunate to have been in the room. Thanks a bunch to Christine Barton-Holmes for taking photos!

New Braunfels is where Mikey Gammon and I teamed up this evening. We had a huge crowd and TONS of requests. There were a lot of oddball tunes we attempted, in addition to the normal sing-alongs like "Brown Eyed Girl". "Life's Been Good" had us amazed at not only how good it came out, but also at the huge response as we finished it! Woot!

We played a show for Howl2Go (Howl At The Moon) tonight in San Antonio, and it went great! My dueling partner, Dave Lovett, and I took tons of requests from the energetic crowd, and played as many as we could in two hours with the help of our amazing rhythm section, consisting of Chris Wallis on drums and Kevin Humphry on bass. The crowd wasn't afraid to dance, so we kept them on their feet. Fun night all around for the guests at the 2016 Convention Unite & Ignite and us!

Americana was played in Wimberly tonight! I had a great time with The Hill Country Gentlemen. The band sounded fantastic, and the dance floor had regular visitors. I'm sure we'll be back soon. Thanks to Christine Barton-Holmes for the picture.

Dave Lovett and I performed a dueling piano show tonight in downtown Austin, TX for Q2's client conference Connect 16. The stage had two baby grand pianos on it, about 20 feet apart and about four foot away from the front of the stage, which took a little getting used to, but we rocked the night! The crowd was bringing us requests from our first note until our last, and regularly would come dance across the stage. Dave sounded fantastic in my monitor, and it was a treat to play with him again!

I drummed in New Braunfels while Tommy Raye played piano, and our special guest, Celeste Brinkman, on violin. I enjoyed drumming this evening! We had a big variety of tunes, as always, hit the piano. Thanks to everyone for parting at Moonshine & Ale with us!
