Hey everybody!
You may have noticed that my website is temporarily under construction… Don’t worry! It will be back up soon with new content! But in the meantime you’ll have to enjoy my newsletter from the comforts of your email. That also means you don’t get a bunch of fun pictures. I’m just not that high tech.

There are not a whole lot of gigs this month as we are putting the final touches on the mixes for the new album. But you might want to start getting used to me being around less often. I still love y’all, but I am looking to expand my shows and touring and as a result maybe in Atlanta a little less often. That means you really wanna take advantage and come see me when I am in town!

For the first three months of this year I am playing at SuBourbon Bar in Kennesaw the first and third Thursdays. That means this Thursday, 2/4, and again in two weeks, 2/18. SuBourbon Bar, as you might guess, has an excellent bourbon selection and from what I hear some very tasty oysters. They also serve pizza but they do not have an extensive menu so if you’re not into oysters you might want to grab a bite before you come wash it down with the delicious brown stuff. SuBourbon has live music six nights a week, including a jam on Tuesday nights, and is quickly becoming THE place for live music in Kennesaw. Music starts at 8:30. SuBourbon Bar is located at 2718 Summers St in Kennesaw, GA 30144 (770)213-4814 or you can find them online at www.subourbonbar.com.

This Friday, 2/5, I will be returning to Rocco’s Pub in Marietta for a second time. You may have heard that Rocco’s closed down last year, but they reopened late last year and are now fully up and running with a full bar. The new owners are fantastic and have seen the business mostly from the customer side so they are all about making sure you have a good time. They bought the place next door and are building a stage to be able to house music several nights a week, but in the meantime they asked me to come play some acoustic stuff to get folks in the mood. This is a good place to bring the kids and have a little dinner. Or don’t bring the kids and have a little drink. Your choice. But let’s let the new owners know that Marietta loves music and that we are excited to gain another venue! Rocco’s is located at 1477 Roswell Rd in Marietta, GA 30062 (770)971-8806 or check out their Facebook page Rocco’s Facebook. Music starts at 7:30.

The last Friday of the month, 2/26, I will be back at Nik’s Back Porch in Marietta with the full band. We haven’t had a band gig in awhile, so I am really looking forward to it! Seriously, these guys are awesome. I’ll be playing with Adam Holliday, Landon Jordan, Adam Higgins, and Paul Wagner so the stage will be packed! Let’s pack the dance floor too! This will be a mix of covers and originals but I fully expect you all to bring your dancing shoes. Nik’s has a delicious menu served late so it’s a great place to end your night. Music starts at 10. Nik’s is located at 645 Whitlock Ave NW in Marietta, GA 30064 (770)792-6666 or catch them online at www.niksplace.com.

I’d like to remind you all that I do have new merchandise for sale, including bookmarks, moscow mule mugs, and magnet puzzles, so please come out to my shows and show a sister some love! But mostly I just want to see your face.

See you soon!
