Friday Afternoon Happy Hour with Your's Truly!
The Winery 101!
Friday, June 28, 2019 5:00 PM-7:00PM
9299 W. Olive Ave, Suite 101 (around back)
Peoria, AZ 85345

I'll be back for another afternoon of wine and songs for you.  Great little, secluded hideaway in the back of an industrial plaza serving awesome local wines.  Pro-tip: there are two sides of the wine menu.  The more affordable, just-as-good, wines are on the back side of the menu - hint hint!
Hope to see you there!

Saturday's show was a huge success and a whole lot of fun!  Great to be back! Thank you to everyone who attended, the proprietors of  The Winery 101 (who can't wait to have me back), and to Woody Joyner for sitting in with me and being the Simon to my Garfunkel. That being said, I'm FOR SALE again for parties, bbqs, luaus (don't bore your guests with Pandora or Spotify), corporate events, and music festivals. If you would like to own me for a few hours, contact me at for rates and availability. Military discount available!

Some short samples of what you missed!  These links may or may not work for you.  Still trying to figure this out.

The Sam Rainwater CD Release/Packages From Home Fundraiser

I had the honor to be a part of the Sam Rainwater CD release party and fundraiser for the Packages from Home organization.  I chose to utilize my 15 minutes in the spotlight on the big stage at Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar and Grill" playing disco songs on the ukulele.  We all had a hoot and raised a lot of money for a very worthwhile charity!

Packages from Home Fundraiser

I had the pleasure of sitting in with the Desert Island Band with my new tenor ukulele at a fundraiser for the Package from Home folks.  Had a great time on a beautiful Arizona winter day.  I'm glad I had my lid on to protect my melon from the hot desert sun.  

Met a lot of great volunteers who are doing an awesome job supporting out troops by collecting and shipping packages to our troops overseas deployed to hostile combat areas.  If you get a chance, stop by their website and have a peak.

"The mission of Packages From Home is to send care and comfort packages to deployed American military heroes who are stationed in active duty theaters around the world, as well as to facilitate activities that elevate morale of all veterans."

Big Head?

Autographs? Sessions as a studio musician?  Yeah, I'm getting a big head.  So?
