Before I get to the update today, and tell you guys how to get tickets to the concert where we'll celebrate...

"25 Years - That Guitar Man from Central Park"

I wanna share a brand new music video I spent the entire day Wednesday editing and getting up on Facebook and Twitter. I hope, if you feel the same as me, you copy the link and share it with all of your friends. But no matter how you feel, even if you disagree with the sentiment in the song, I hope you leave a comment on the YouTube page.

OKAY!

Comin' off an AMAZING 11 days in The Turks and Caicos Islands. Met so many beautiful people. Shared so many stories and songs with so many people. And just... relaxed the rest of the time. White sand and turquoise seas. I'll be sharing photos and stories in the next few days, but now it's time to get back to work... the work I love. It's gonna take me a couple of days to catch up. There's always a mountain of email from all across the country and different parts of the world. and although I'm really bad at answering email, I always promise that i read every message I get. So that's gonna take a little time. And I hafta contact a few of my colleagues about the upcoming concert and the planning of the next reading of my new play "THE GREEN ROOM".

So, if you haven't started calling a few friends and telling them about the concert on April 1... wouldja start doing that? It's gonna be a really special, one-night-only event on Friday night, April 1...

"25 Years - That Guitar Man from Central Park"

The tickets are already on sale!!! If you're gonna be in NYC, grab tickets sooner than later. Start thinking about making plans to help celebrate the fact that 2016 marks the 25th year that I have been "That Guitar Man from Central Park". Feels like a long way off... but time flies.

It's gonna be on Friday night, April 1. The Peter J. Sharp Theater in Symphony Space is a venue which is about twice the size of Merkin Concert Hall. Tickets went on sale... this week. I know it's early, but call some friends and make plans, okay?

RIGHT NOW it looks like I'll be joined on stage by so many of your favorites. Teresa Reynolds and George Wurzbach, Chris Tedesco, Dan Paccione... and for the first time in years, my pal Roger Bartlett will share the stage! Also, for this gig we'll have a special guest drummer sit in from both Long Island and my past life -- Russell DeBonis. Don't miss this one-time event. Seriously.

Over the past 25 years of afternoons in Central Park you've heard me say again and again that I feel like one of the luckiest men on the face of the Earth. Well, this night of music and laughs, stories and memories will give you a good idea why.

Now, I've been going through some significant changes in my Life... and working on some pretty wonderful projects. I moved to a new apartment in a new neighborhood in Manhattan. I just wrote a new dramatic one-act play, I'm sitting on top of another that is starting to generate real interest... and I'm still pushing the new musical "Possibility Junkie". I think we've really got something wonderful on our hands. Here's a little taste.

OH!!! At the beginning of the summer I was lucky enough to be part of the very first Global Family Reunion. At that gig, I shared a stage with legendary songwriter Paul Williams, and partied on the main stage with Sister Sledge, and then did a set of my own. It was very, very cool.

Here's a moment from that gig.

Listen, most of you live in or around New York City but I know a lot of you are new around here. And a lot of you are checking in from different parts of the country and different parts of the world. A lot of you guys showed up after the newest video from the December concert hit YouTube and Twitter. Well, I update this page almost everyday. Still, you can hit the ARCHIVE here at the site.

OR on YouTube: thatguitarman

OR on Twitter: @thatguitarman

There's always a lot cool stuff goin' on someplace. Keep checking back.

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.

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
