8/7/15 - The Cary Theater with The Bluegrass Experience  

Got to reconnect with my old friend Tommy Edwards of The Bluegrass Experience last night, what a great time we had. I played in front of a sold out audience thanks to Tommy and the boys. The Cary Theater is fantastic, a classy venue in downtown Cary, thanks to Steve Sardinha and Six String Presents for inviting me to play for such a great crowd.

7/23/15 Song From Downstairs with Terry Anderson 

Last night we celebrated a year of performances at Songs From Downstairs with Terry Anderson and The Oak Ass Kicking Team...and Terry and the boys rocked it out! Thanks to Terry, Jack, Greg and Dave for playing a great acoustic set, Terry's songwriting never ceases to amaze me. 

6/25/15 ...with Kenny Roby at Songs From Downstairs 

Last night was a one of the best crowds ever for Songs From Downstairs with the great Kenny Roby. Neptune's continues to be the perfect setting for performers like Kenny and I who love playing for a room full of acoustic lovers, thanks to all who came.
