I’ll be at “THE HILL” today!
You know me. I’m not a flag-waver or one to hold a candle in some vigil in Union Square. But a very nice, very decent man named Howard asked me to participate in a sunrise event remembering what happened 20 years ago today. So before I head to Central Park, I’ll be over on The East Side in Carl Schurz Park at 86th Street as a part of a remembrance event at 7:00am.
And on a day like today… well, any day… there’s nothin’ like being back where we belong, by The Lake sharing music and laughs with a few thousand people. So I’ll get out to Central Park about 1:00. I usually play all afternoon until 5:30 or until I fall over… whichever comes first.
We’ll start streaming LIVE from Central Park at 3:00 (eastern)
You can hang out with us LIVE at “The Hill” right here on your computer. It will be a very special summer version on “It’s Just Us”.

During the week we also get together LIVE with sweet, fun people from all across the country and in different parts of the world. We started doing it during the pandemic, but it’s so much fun and we’ve made so many wonderful friends that we’re gonna keep it going. COME JOIN US!

Thanks for being in the audience
Last year, during the height of the pandemic, we enjoyed a LIVE reading of my newest play “GREEN ROOM”.
Many of you know I’ve been making a transition from a Life as a songwriter to a career as a playwright. I feels like the time is right to sit in the dark with you guys and allow my characters to help hasten the day that “religion” becomes a memory for the human race. A percentage of my work is always dedicated to that goal… but I have my own fun way of making that a reality one day.
The right after that we took a run at a magnificent theatrical experiment and a lot of were a part of it… maybe the most important part. The audience. I assembled a cast of Tony Award winners, veteran actors, exciting newcomers… just incredible artists to take a run at this audacious script.
Hopefully these scripts will soon find a Creative champion to move it, and kick the door open for a few other plays and musicals. I’ll let you all know!!!
After the reading that night we’ll all retreated back to my Facebook page for comments and discussion. It was very cool.
WE ALL CREATE TOGETHER
Over the course of the past year+ we started to Create music videos together… to help keep us sane and connected. Here’s the most recent video a bunch of you jumped in on.

Even though our entire season in Central Park was canceled last year… we’ll make some new and exciting things happen in 2021
So what’s next? Well… 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: two new plays “The Green Room” and “Jack flew” – and the Creation of a NEW MUSICAL… which is the offspring of the workshopped musical “Possibility Junkie”.
No kidding. It’s been more than a year since we wrapped another season in Central Park, another year I had the privilege of being “That Guitar Man from Central Park”. I wanna sincerely thank every single one of you who showed up, even for one day out there at “The Hill” You make me feel like the luckiest man alive. Here are a whole bunch of photos from our 2019 season.
JUST A FEW MOMENTS FROM 2019
Incredible. I love this town!!! I’m such a lucky man!
Every week this summer we turned the path into a dance floor.
I’m still consistently amazed. Every time… just blown away by what I get to do with a guitar on my shoulder.
Music, laughs, stories, thoughts, feelings and… more photos soon!
I WANNA SAY “THANK YOU” TO EVERYONE WHO HELPS MAKE MY LIFE AS AN ARTIST AS WONDERFUL AS IT IS. NOW…

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.
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 TRUMPISM. 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.
