Good To Be Back #openmic #concert

I just got home from playing at my first #openmicnight in five years. It was at R Lo’s Pub & Grub in my hometown of Thomasville, North Carolina, and it was hosted by my friends, the PeaceTrain Band. Between their sets, which included renditions of classics by the likes of Neil Young, Eric Clapton, and John Denver, I was fortunate to play two sets, which altogether included verions of hits by U2, Sir Paul McCartney, Vance Joy, and the late George Michael, plus one of my original songs, (U) Spit Me Out. Aside from the positive feedback that I received from everyone who enjoyed my performance, I had a great time enjoying and playing some awesome music.

Remember that if you’re a Piedmont Triad area musician, come on out to R Lo’s on the first Sunday of every month and share your God-given talents! R Lo’s Pub & Grub is located at 207 Fisher Ferry Street in Thomasville. Be there or be square!

Open Mic Night at R Lo’s Pub & Grub

What’s up, everyone? I hope that your day is going well. I just want to call your attention to an event that has just started. It is the monthly Open Mic Night at R Lo’s Pub & Grub in Thomasville, North Carolina, and it is hosted by my friend Phillip Peace and his group, the PeaceTrain Band. I will keep you posted on the exact date of this event.

If you live in the Piedmont Triad area of NC and you are a musician or if you just enjoy good music, come on out next month to R Lo’s Pub & Grub, which is located at 207 Fisher Ferry St. in Thomasville. You will have a great time, and that is a guarantee!

Videos

I know that y’all have been wondering why I have not been filming and uploading anymore videos on YouTube since this past spring. It has been due in part to my work schedule, so I ended up taking an unplanned summer break from making videos, but I will be back at it within the next few weeks. Remember to check out the videos that are already on my YouTube channel, like them, and leave a comment (no negative feedback though). Thank you.

28th September 2016

Hey, y’all! How are you doing? I am doing well at this moment. As you can imagine, this past year has been a rollercoaster one due to deaths in my family, my personal inner circle, and in the music business as well as some more positive news which is that I am currently employed as one of the cooks at Zaxby’s on Randolph Street in Thomasville where I have been working since orientation which was a week before the restaurant officially opened for business. However, I still have intentions to start rocking again, so don’t fret (no pun intended, of course) because I am about to hit the Piedmont Triad open mic scene again hopefully within the next few weeks, and I plan to return to recording music after the holidays.

Thank you all so very much for your support.

Coming Back

Hey, everyone! What’s up? I hope that you had a good Fourth Of July holiday. If you are in the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina (Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem, and surrounding communities), this is just a short announcement that after four years, I intend on returning to performing at open mic nights again in about a month or so because I miss sharing my music with you all as well as listening to other artists’ music. Keep checking back for updates, the first of which should come soon. Thanks for your support over the years, and I love you all! Peace.
