New Gigs: Another Tribute Show, and Songwriters in the Round

During the past week, two new gigs have fallen in my lap.

First, I’m pleased to announce that the Living Legacy Band is going on the road. We’ll do the “Eagles/Chicago” tribute show again, this time in Coppell at FUMC Coppell.

Here’s the scoop on the show:

Tribute to the Music of The Eagles and Chicago
7 pm, October 15th
FUMC Coppell
420 South Heartz Road
Coppell, TX

Admission to the show is free. But a love offering will be taken for www.umcor.org

These tribute shows have raised almost $4,500 for this worthy cause, and I feel certain we’ll go well over $5K with the Coppell show.

So, if my notice for the last show was way too late, now you have about two weeks to make your plans.

I will also be playing at “Pearl’s” on Commerce Street in late October. This is a new venue owned by my old songwriter friend, Rick Yost. An although they focus on jazz, Rick just can’t leave the songwriters behind. So, once a month he invites three to come play. I’ll share the stage with Dallasite Todd Buckley, and Tyler native, Raymoth Gildean. We’ll do two “rounds” followed by a 40 minute solo set by each. Come to hear some talented songwriters, and experience this great new venue.
