New York Tour So Far

Why dontcha play one of my songs from the player in the left column while you’re reading

A leisurely drive up the coast was uneventful with two very pleasant stops, check First in Amelia Island Florida to dine and visit with or dear friends Davis and Pam Turner and to later watch their gig, ed Drove to Stoudton, buy Virginia the next day. Cute little town and on to Narrowsburg, PA to spend some time with my Mom before we went up to Kingston, NY to have a birthday dinner with my daughter. Then we went to our rental house in Rhinebeck to not find a Fedex containing most of our clothes and other important items, which was to have arrived before us. Seems the Clinton wedding took over town to the point that Fedex used it as an excuse to turn around instead of looking at a map for an alternate route. We lived grungy and annoyed for a few days before they got around to delivering 5 days late.

Okay, over that but I woke up Thursday morning to discover that my Gmail and Facebook had been hacked and taken over by the London Scam. I regained Gmail but he destroyed my address book and asked everybody I ever communicate with for $2250 because I had allegedly been mugged while on tour in London. If you fell for it, I’m deeply sorry but if you follow me and open my fan mail, you know I’m on a NY tour. Not London.

I got many sympathetic calls and messages from fantastic friends all over the world. I feel so blessed by that. It makes it so much easier to get over this catastrophe. Facebook is another major problem. I’m not sure they will restore me to my 1200 friends. I do a TON of music business there and this is no small problem for me.

Reverbnation has been stable, secure and very useful. If you’re not on that fan list I hope you will use this widget:

NYC is beautiful this weekend and my first show at UC Lounge in the East Village went extremely well. They want to have me back. Sunday night’s show uptown at SIP Acoustic Soul Lounge also went quite well. Smaller venue but with a very appreciative audience.

We watched a movie being shot right below our hotel room on Broadway at 103 St. A chase scene for a movie called Maximum Rush involving a bicyclist and a car and many extras of both the two legged and four wheeled varieties. Then when we went to play the SIP gig. Nearby another crew for the same movie was shooting more scenes involving a female cyclist. Word is the production company closed down three blocks of Broadway and two of Amsterdam Ave. for two weekends. Think that was cheap?

Makes me look forward to my role as a featured extra in the Beautiful Noise Movie, being shot in Sarasota next month. Getting ready now for the Musikfest gig in Bethlehem this Wednesday.
