Friday, May 29, 2015

Okay guys... welcome to all of you checking in here from different parts of the country and different parts of the world. Here in New York City, most of you know how, over the years, I've learned to watch the radar and satellite imagery like a damned farmer during the summer months when I become "That Guitar Man from Central Park".

Well, right now it's lookin' pretty good for tomorrow.

I hope so. If we get some rain it will probably come in the form of a pretty heavy thunderstorm late in the day or tomorrow night. So we'll probably get to enjoy a pretty full day of music and laughs like we did last weekend.

.

.

If you live here in NYC, I hope I see you out there tomorrow.

Parents: If you're thinking about coming out with small children, consider if this is the kind of event that is appropriate for young kids! Ha! After about 10 minutes, they usually prefer a playground! If you do bring children, please make sure they're well-behaved and are respectful of the nice people around them listening to music. ~ THANKS

.

HEY! Before we get into the BIG news about tomorrow in Central Park, I should let you guys in on the BIG news about next weekend. I'm sharing a stage with the legendary songwriter PAUL WILLIAMS... and then taking the Main Stage myself at 6:00. I just saw the lineup for the Global Family Reunion I was asked to be a part of. LISA LOEB, MARILU HENNER, DANIELLE RADCLIFFE, DAVID BLAINE.... really cool. Take a look.

NOW... TOMORROW!

I'm really looking forward to hangin' out with you guys. I'll probably crank up around 12:30 and play until I fall over or until about 6:00... whichever comes first.

And we're gonna do something pretty amazing again... something we only imagined for years. We are going to stream the afternoon LIVE to everybody online. Now the whole world can hang out with us in real-time. And everybody can chat with each other, and make comments, and talk about the music, and eventually make requests. If you can be in NYC, here's a map to show you where we are!

So if you're NOT in New York, you can join us by clicking on this banner and logging in around 3:00 edt. WANNA BE PART OF THE EXPERIMENT THIS WEEKEND?

This is year #24 that we New Yorkers have been out there together, and every weekend we've been joined by thousands of people from all over the world. Technology is progressing exponentially every year, and so tomorrow we catch up with the future. Here's what I'm gonna ask you to do.

If you live here in NYC, I hope you'll come out to join us. But before tomorrow, I hope you call or email or text your friends and family all across the country and across the ocean and ask them to join us ONLINE. (Here's the link: https://www.concertwindow.com/5480-the-weekly-show-with-david-ippolito )

Post it on Facebook if you want.

Invite everybody... and then tomorrow while we're hangin' out together in the middle of the most amazing city on earth just doing what we do... they can be with us... LIVE... in real time. And they can chat with each other and just have a good ol' time with people from everywhere!!! Pretty cool, right?

And tomorrow I can tell you all about another really amazing thing that's coming up. In one week from now on June 6 I'm gonna be part of the world's biggest family reunion. It's not "my" family reunion. It's "our" family reunion... yours and mine. A guy named AJ Jacobs is throwing this incredible once-in-a-lifetime party and he's asked me to be a part of it. I don't think you're gonna wanna miss this thing. Click on this banner and go to this website to see what I'm talking about.

Click logo for the details

It's gonna be out at the old World's Fair Grounds in Queens! It's very cool. I was asked to accompany the great, great songwriter Paul Williams as he sings "The Rainbow Connection" and a few of his other amazing songs. Then I was asked to do a new, original song of mine which was inspired by this project. I'm also gonna be part of a lineup that includes Lisa Loeb, Andy Borowitz, Daniel Radcliffe, David Blaine, George H.W. Bush (How weird is that!) and at the end of the program I'm probably gonna be on stage singing "We Are Family" with Sister Sledge. Bizarre. I'll tell you more about it this Saturday in Central Park.

But if you want tickets... the host of this party, AJ, made it possible for YOU to get a special 25% off the regular ticket price just for being one of "The People on The Hill". Seriously! They gave me a link just for you guys. Follow this link!!!

Gotta keep focusing on the beauty in this world. The ugliness will always be there. Let's all keep trying to move a little closer to the Light every day. I have work to do. The tools of my work are music and the written word. We all have different ways of feeding the beauty and starving the ugly. I hope we all get use them during our next lap around the Sun. I hope we all feel a part of One world in 2015.

.

Oh listen... nobody is more disappointed or heart-broken than me that there will be no video this year from "The Something'th Annual Year End Concert". But trust me, we had a blast... again. Actually we had people travel from Maryland and Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, just so they could be in town for this gig. (A couple from Europe actually told they scheduled their trip to the Big Apple around this concert!)

So very cool.

Here are the first photos from this year's gig.

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
