May 7 would have been “Opening Day”… our return to “The Hill” in Central Park. But the weather pulled the plug on that. Besides being under a weather system that produced 3 straight days of rain, it was way under our cut-off temp of 60º.
Now, The Parks Department withheld the permit for this weekend so our new opening date will be next Saturday.
At “The Hill” I usually crank up around 1:00 and play until 5:00 or until I fall over… whichever comes first. So, here we go! Season #31.
“It’s Just Us”
Hey listen… for now we’re still hangin’ out LIVE twice a week… this coming Saturday at 3:00 (eastern) and Wednesday at 4:00. JOIN US!
The past couple of years have been a struggle for so many of us. But you guys have really helped keep my head above water during this entire pandemic. We’re really enJoying our time hangin’ together LIVE online during the week with people from all across the country and around the world. I often say I feel like the luckiest man alive. A big part of that is that I get to share my work with all of you. I get to share my songs, my plays… my thoughts and feelings with all of you. For 30 years as “That Guitar Man from Central Park” I’ve lived a Life as a fiercely independent artist. And now on “It’s Just Us”, doing what we do LIVE online has been nothing short of “typically amazing”.

Thanks for being in the audience
Last year 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 do a LIVE online reading of this audacious script. (Chuck Cooper, Austin Pendleton, Jillian Louis, Teresa Reynolds, Jamal Thomas, David Andino, Paul Olson — stage directions read by Gretchen Cryer)
Looks like this play has found a few Creative champions to move it to Broadway, probably later this year. It will be my first on Broadway 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. Before that, 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.
WHAT A RIDE!
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 in 2020 and shortened in ’21… we’re making some new and exciting things happen in 2022.
No kidding. Last summer was an abbreviated and very weird season in Central Park, but it was 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
Incredible. I love this town!!! I’m such a lucky man!
Every week we turn 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…
I WANNA SAY “THANK YOU” TO EVERYONE WHO HELPS MAKE MY LIFE AS AN ARTIST AS WONDERFUL AS IT IS. NOW…
Please visit my Facebook page and leave comments on anything you want, okay?
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 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.
