Beautiful Day out there!

There are few really cool things coming up on the horizon. First of all... Tomorrow we are expecting a much bigger crowd in the chat room for "The Weekly Show". We had such a sweet time with just a handful of people last Monday. But I promised that I would start featuring guests on the show. So this week... I keep that promise. Start spreading the word. Reserve a ticket right now so all you hafta do is log-on a little bit before showtime. OR, go to Concert Window and set a "reminder".

My guest TOMORROW EVENING is the wonderful writer/actor/director Gretchen Cryer. (And yes, she is the Mom of Jon Cryer of "Two and a Half Men")


Gretchen Cryer will be my special guest on the show
this Monday night.

.

Now, when you show up for "The Weekly Show" we're all in a chat room together LIVE. So I'll be taking your requests LIVE. And we'll all be chatting about... um.. whatever we want. Gretchen and I will discuss then changes we've made to the show "Possibility Junkie" and our plans for it's future. (And I'm sure I'm gonna talk her into doing a song from one of her shows.)

So here...

CLICK ON THIS BANNER AND BUY A TICKET... for whatever you want to pay.

.

.

There's so much going on and we have so much to chat about. That's one of the coolest things about these online gigs. You guys have been having such a great time in that chat room. I get to read the transcript of the "chat" after the gig goes offline, and it's wonderful to see so many people who live far away from New York City hangin' out with all of us here in town in real time. I'll be kind of interested to hear what you guys think of the latest parody I posted on Youtube and Twitter... "The Memory Song".

So listen, if you've been thinking about checking out "The Weekly Show" do it tomorrow night. It's really, really easy and you pay whatever you want to be a part of it. It's very cool.

I mentioned this yesterday.

It's something that I do almost every year, although I can't remember if I did it last year. It's something that I'm kind of uncomfortable doing... but what the hell. Y'see, this week, I went to the Central Park Precinct to get the first round of Sound Device Permits from the NYPD. The officer over there who's been handling the permits for us for a while? He's professional and knows what we've been doing out there for 23 years. In fact, he worked with the Central Park Conservancy for a few years before he joined the NYPD so he really knows his stuff and he knows what we're about.

But like every year... I always reach out to you guys to see if you wanna feel like a part of what I've been doing out there. Back in 2000 when we first kinda became a part of the fabric on Central Park, I figured that it costs about $100 a day for me to do what I do. Now, believe me... I honestly feel like the luckiest man alive and so I really don't mind putting up the money to get out there. I just figure every year that it might be cool to ask you guys if you wanna chip in and help. So, if you feel like throwing a few bucks at the fun this Summer...

Just click on this banner to help out.

.

And believe me... as somebody who is statistically on of "The Poor" I completely understand if you can't help or don't feel like it. Just head put to the park and have a good time anyway this year, okay?

Moving on!

.

SATURDAY, MAY 10th

.

.

In the meantime, we can hang out on Monday nights online, and you guys can go to The Youtube Channel and browse all the videos there! Now for anybody new here, I feel like the luckiest man alive. I have been "That Guitar Man from Central Park" for a generation.

Remember that song, that little parody of The Tea Party I threw in at "The Something'th Annual Year End Concert"? Seems there are a lot of people in the Twitterverse who can relate. So, if you haven't already go check it out and leave a comment if you feel like it okay?

Last year, so many really amazing Creative things happened in my Life as an artist. I shared another Summer season in Central Park with a few hundred thousand New Yorkers and people from all across the country and around the planet...

THANKS FOR ANOTHER AMAZING YEAR ON "THE HILL"!!!

And thanks for another incredible night at "The Something'th Annual Year End Concert" I closed out the year again at Merkin Concert Hall with my friends George, Ryan, Chris, Teresa, Dan and all of you. Now, I'm gonna jump back into editing a promotional sizzle reel for the new musical "Possibility Junkie". It's an exciting way to live... dream-to-dream. Even if half of them never see the light of day, working toward a dream is an incredible way to spend a life.

No kidding. Most of you who have spent any time with me in Central Park in recent years have probably heard several versions of a song called "Tom Cruise Scares Me". Well every year we put a button on the year by taking a run at a new version of that song.

THE NEWEST INCARNATION OF "TOM CRUISE SCARES ME"

Every year at "The Something'th Annual Year End Concert" I ask George to pick one BIG cover song to do. This is what he came up with this year.

A note from filmmaker Dean Love...

As you may know I am producing a documentary about "That Guitar Man from Central Park". I would like to ask all David's fans out there to write me and tell me any stories you may have about David and his playing in Central Park and how it has affected you or what it has meant to you. I've already heard some great stories, but I know there are more that I haven't heard. So if you got a story to tell about David and his music, please briefly write it out and send it to stories@thatguitarman.com . I will be contacting people from the stories submitted to interview them for possible inclusion in the film. Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone on the hill this summer.
- Dean
