October 30, 2012 – Mile One Centre, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada
As they say in Canada, this show was “on the ice.” The Mile One Centre is a hockey arena where they just lay plywood down over the ice for concerts. St. John’s is one of the earliest settlements in North America, a fishing and shipping port. A lot of Irish
October 28, 2012 – Casino New Brunswick, Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada
Haven’t played in Moncton since 1986. The folks were extremely receptive, which is nice because , no offense meant to the fine folks of Canada, the crowds can be a little stiff at times. Not for us tonight though. The photo shows how inflation has hit hard over the years
October 27, 2012 – Casino Ballroom, Hampton Beach, NH
We’ve played this gig so many times no one could figure out how many! Always an enthusiastic crowd, this night was no different. We changed up the set to include “When The Time Has Come ” and “Trouble In Paradise.” Always a highlight for me is having my daughter Olivia
October 25, 2012 – Luhr’s Performing Arts Center, Shippensburg, PA
This theater is on the campus of beautiful Shippensburg University. Great sounding room. Nothing really newsworthy to report, but we’re having a good time!
October 24, 2012 – Count Basie Theater, Red Bank, NJ
Red Bank is a beautiful little town on an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean. Basie was born in Red Bank, and I know my dad, and Huey’s, were both smiling down on us last night. The venue, which we played a few years back, is a very cool, old theater
October 23, 2012 – Ridgefield Playhouse, Ridgefield, CT
This was a benefit concert in the tiny little Playhouse. Around 500 seats, it sounded very good. We had a lot of friends attend this one. It’s always so great to reconnect with our East Coast friends. I had the opportunity to play at Sleepy Hollow Country Club with my
October 21, 2012 – Playhouse Square, Cleveland, OH
The Palace is a beautiful theater and I thought we were GREAT tonight! But, then again, I’m just the guy making all the racket. We’re all getting together tomorrow night , a night off, to watch game 7 of the NLCS.
October 20, 2012 – Honeywell Center, Wabash, IN
Being in Wabash reminded me of a great line from the old “F Troop” TV show. The Indians in the show were the Fugawi Tribe. The boys from F Troop would always be saying “Where the Fugawi?”
October 19, 2012 – Norton Arts Center, Danville, KY
Nice little theater that played host to the Vice- Presidential debate just a week earlier. It’s good to be back playing. Personally, I don’t do too well with not working. I’d much rather be playing!
August 15, 2012 – Greek Theater, Los Angeles, CA
It was really nice to have 2 days off in L.A. before this show. I went down to Newport Beach to visit my daughter, Julia. We went to the Getty museum on Tuesday, which, if you haven’t seen it, is amazing. Everyone went their own way after Denver, with a
August 12, 2012 – Comfort Dental Amphitheater, Denver, CO
This place used to be called Fiddler’s Green and I remember it being the last show of the “Small World” tour in 1989. Good to see my old junior high and high school pal, Mark Bower, who has lived here for many years. Mark was the bass player in my
August 10, 2012 – Ravinia Music Festival, Chicago, IL
This is a great festival held yearly in Highland Park, north of downtown Chicago. We’ve played it a few times now (we’ve played EVERYWHERE a few times now!) A packed house and a really fun night. It’s finally getting a little bit cooler as well. Those last 3 weeks have
