OPENING DAY — 2018!
WE HAD A REALLY GREAT TIME HANGIN’ OUT LIVE ONLINE DURING THE OFF-SEASON! But it’s been a long winter. It’s been a challenging but fascinating time. But now it’s time to head back to Central Park. It’s time to head back to a place I’ve called home for the past quarter century and then some. It’s time to head back to “The Hill”.
I’LL HEAD OUT THERE ABOUT 1:00!
I usually crank up around 1:00 and then play until 5:30 or 6:00… or until I fall over, whichever comes first. The weather is looking… um… PERFECT.
IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN OUT THERE WITH ME, here’s a little map to show you where we hang out.
AND THIS IS WHAT WE DO!!!
I’m also raising money again for the “Permit Fund”. It’s just something I do every year if you feel like being a part of the gig and helping to take care of some of the overhead involved in getting out to Central Park on Saturdays throughout the summer. All of the permit fees are paid for… the Special Events Permits and the Sound Device Permits from the NYPD. But… if you think you would like to help out in that regard, every year I do a little something called the “Permit Fund”. (It’s only there if you can afford to help and if you feel like it.)
NOW, THIS PAST WINTER I came up with new show idea… after having a few weeks to let the dust settle, I’m pretty convinced that the basic concept I have for this new show is right. And the feeling I have… the feeling about the appetite for a new show like the one we started to develop at The Thalia in April… is also dead-on. Gonna continue my search for a Creative producer in this town with both vision and balls. Because…
NOW it’s time to get to work!!!
HERE’S A VIDEO OF A SONG THAT WILL DEFINITELY MAKE IT INTO THE NEW SHOW.
“GET OUT OUR HOUSE”! I need everybody’s help sharing it across the country and around the world. Click the image to watch.
You can also copy this link… ( https://goo.gl/S6c8FY ) …paste it all over the internet and email. Have fun.
I WANNA SAY “THANK YOU” TO EVERYONE WHO HELPS MAKE MY LIFE AS AN ARTIST AS WONDERFUL AS IT IS. NOW…

And now! Just a feel good video of “The Big Cover Song”… from the concert last December, that demonstrates how much fun we have and why I’m always telling you that I feel like the luckiest man alive.

PHOTOS FROM THE Last GIG of 2017…
THERE’S MORE VIDEO FROM THE CONCERT ALL UP AND DOWN MY FACEBOOK PAGE RIGHT NOW! I’ll be posting some more really soon. But photographer David Hayase was the first to get his photos into the website from this year’s concert. So here’s a handful.
SEE YOU SOON!!!
Oh, and when we get rained out this year, we’ll make those “online” days… special rain-out editions of “The Weekly Show”.
Thank YOU for showing up. If you’re new around here… WELCOME! If you don’t follow me on Facebook, go there now and then keep checking back.
Today, I find myself sitting on top of 3 incredible Creative projects that seem to be exploding into the world as I’m writing this: the new play “The Green Room” – the video for the song “Dreamers Like Me” – and the Creation of a NEW MUSICAL… which is the off-spring of the workshopped musical “Possibility Junkie”.
I’m still living this Life with open arms and Love, but ZERO tolerance for people who voted for or continue to support the abomination that is Donald J Trump. As my new song says, “I hope they feel like joining us someday.” But until that day, the rest of us have work to do!!!
Thanks so much for hangin’ out.
