John Lennon today…

“Dreamers”… he said he was not the only one.

John was a huge, huge influence on my songwriting… but never more so than in regard to my newest song.

john-today

Y’know?

I wonder about a lot of things. Sure, I wrote in a song once that I know everything that happens is supposed to happen…. because it happens. But one thing I never wonder about is if John as an artist would have still been a voice of progress, reason, protest, and social conscience today. I have no doubt about that.

Look, we’ll talk about that and other things this coming Sunday… LIVE online. Y’see, the song I opened the concert with the other night, “Dreamers Like Me” was directly inspired by a lesson I learned from singing “Imagine for so many year, then writing a song called “common Ground, and then ultimately realizing that I missed an important element the the pursuit of progress.

I feel like it’s time for me, for all “Dreamers”, to just get started. In the light of what’s happened in this country in the last few months, this is no time to mope, or feel helpless, or feel sorry for myself. It’s time for the dreamers to get to work. So I’ll be here working. I’ll be posting photos and video from the concert. This coming Sunday, I’m gonna be right back on the horse and we’re gonna have another LIVE online edition of… “THE WEEKLY SHOW”.

Make sure you spread the word. Tell your friends everywhere, no matter where in the country they live to start checking in here. Give them the link to Concert Window and ask them to join us in the chat room, okay? And ask them to join me on my Facebook Page. (https://www.facebook.com/david.thatguitarman )

I’ll be sharing the newest song… the one I just wrote, the one I opened the concert with.

The original acoustic version will be available on iTunes very soon.

Let me just leave you today with a few images from the concert last weekend, captured by our photographers friends David Hayase and Sean Friedman.

Okay, this is the time of year…

This is usually the time of year when  I say I’m going to “Flip the sign”.

It’s usually more an attitude adjustment, y’know? After all the work that goes into putting up the “Year End Concert” and after all the energy left out there in that stage, and after all the good, good feelings in the days immediately after… I like to say I’m flipping the sign in door of my imaginary store to “Closed for the Season”.

But not this year.

This year I feel like it’s time for me, for all “Dreamers”, to just get started. In the light of what’s happened in this country in the last few months, this is no time to mope, or feel helpless, or feel sorry for myself. It’s time for the dreamers to get to work. So I’ll be here working. I’ll be posting photos and video from the concert.

I’ll be back…

But first, how many different ways can I say…

S6842

No kidding.

From the bottom of my heart… if you were in that theater, or if you were one of the people who were hanging with us online — THANK YOU.

I’ll be back after I catch my breath.

And thank you Sindy… Kara, Allie, Rhea, Andrea, Karen, Peter, Mike, Ted, Kenny, Zan… everybody.

And for the beautiful people who shared the stage with me — George Teresa, Chris, Ryan, Dan… no words.

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Dean Love was in the house with his crew so, very soon,  I will be posting video from the amazing time we shared. Those wonderful photographers David Hayase and Sean Friedman were both in the house, so we’ll have lots of amazing images to share as well. Damn! We had fun!

I hope you needed it as much as I did.

Good bye 2016. Here we go… another lap around the Sun!

CONCERT TONIGHT!!!

JUST HEAD TO THE THEATER on West 67th Street.

If it’s not a sell-out tonight… it’s gonna be very close. There isn’t a bad seat in Merkin Concert Hall. There really, really isn’t. So if you wanna be a part of this gig tonight, just head over to The Kaufman Center on West 67th Street, just off Broadway. But get there a little early to make sure. The box office opens around 6:00 and then the house opens at 7:00. The concert cranks up at 7:30. Seriously, for a 500 seat venue there truly isn’t a bad seat. So don’t miss this one. We really do laugh as much as we sing every year.

This is gonna be a special, special night. Maybe because after the year we just had, I feel so many of us need a night like this… smiling, singing, laughing together in a beautiful theater with 500 sweet people.

IF YOU LIVE IN A DIFFERENT PART OF THE COUNTRY OR A DIFFERENT PART OF THE WORLD, YOU CAN HANG WITH US LIVE ONLINE!!!!!

Watch the concert starting at 7:30 eastern. (As a very special edition of “The Weekly Show”)

IT’S EASY!

Don’t be spooked by the “credit card” thing. We’ve been doing this for over a year. It’s safe and it really, really does cost you as little or a much as you wanna pay. Whatever you want. Just click on this banner, set it up, and then log-in a little before…

TOMORROW NIGHT!!!

NOT SOLD OUT YET… BUT…

Y’know? The actual, physical box office is open all day today, but will be closed tomorrow until about an hour before the show. Still you can get tickets ANYTIME online. As of yesterday there were about 100 tickets left. Now, we always get a nice walk-up audience every year when the gig is not completely sold out. But I think a LOT of people really need a night like this right about now, so it’s gonna be close this year. So why not be sure. Grab tickets right now. Call the box office: 212-501-3330

Click on the banner below and make sure you get the seats you really want.
