And we’re off!!! Another year…

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Guys… HOLY SMOKES!!! I have been “That Guitar Man from Central Park” for over 25 years now. It’s something that continues to keep me in a nearly constant state of amazement and gratitude. And this weekend we started another season… together.

But this weekend — no kidding. Another “typically amazing” day. This year, in light of all the insanity in this country, we just might need each other more than ever. This weekend… between the singing, the dancing, the laughs, the magical moments, the DANCING… ( I know I said “dancing” twice. But if you weren’t there you have NO idea what an incredible outbreak of unleashed joy we experienced! Hundreds of us! Right in the middle of the most amazing city on Earth.)

Our photographer friend, David Hayase was out there again with his camera so I should have photos thins week. But if YOU have any photos or video from this past Saturday, please shoot them to me on Facebook, okay?

Every Saturday afternoon for the past 25 years I have been known in this town as “That Guitar Man from Central Park”. I just head out to a spot by a grassy little hill right near The Lake, I put my guitar on my shoulder… and something amazing happens. I really feel like the luckiest man alive.

OH!!! By the way… I am 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.)

MAYBE WE’LL HAFTA REVIVE THIS SONG FOR THE SUMMER!!!

Remember… this is the first summer of “The Trump Nightmare”.

And thank YOU for showing up here today. If you’re new around here… WELCOME! If you don’t follow me on Facebook, go there now and then keep checking back.

It’s come to my attention that a lot of people are visiting this website for the first time, just because of a few other things that are happening in my Creative Life as an artist. So I just wanna welcome you…

I know. I know. For reasonable, sane people this is another tough week. But we’re in it together and we have work to do. Today I’m gonna share a feel good video from our “Year End Concert” at Merkin Concert Hall here in New York City last December.

First, the concert video…

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”.

Here are a few images from the recent concert, captured by our photographers friends David Hayase and Sean Friedman.

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 the song says, “I hope they feel like joining us someday.” but until that day, the rest of us have work to do!!!

ROCK ON!

We plan on releasing at least 2 different versions of this song..

There’s always lots of really current and fun stuff on FACEBOOK, too. You can send a friend request and join me over there: https://www.facebook.com/david.thatguitarman

It’s looking good!

THIS SATURDAY — “OPENING DAY”!

Who feels like the luckiest man alive?

I do. No kidding.

After a wet start to the new season, it looks like we’re gonna get out to Central Park to begin another season of music and laughs, stories and thoughts and feelings… ON SATURDAY!

Exciting times. A real adventure. This year I’ve been making the transition from singer/songwriter to playwright… but I have at least one more amazing summer in me when I’ll get to put a guitar on my shoulder and share music with several thousand of my closest friends. If you’re anywhere near New York City I hope you feel like heading out there on Saturday to join me.

WEATHER-PERMITTING, I’ll head out there and get it started around 1:00 Saturday afternoon. And then I’ll play and sing with you guys until 5:00 or 6:00… or until I fall over. If you live in a different part of the country or a different part of the world, scroll down the page a little. We’ll be streaming LIVE starting at 3:00 (eastern time).

MAYBE WE’LL HAFTA REVIVE THIS SONG FOR THE SUMMER!!!

Going LIVE online today because…

They didn’t issue the permit.

Hey guys. A little drizzle in the morning… and it’s kinda cloudy and cool. Still today would be a day we could definitely enjoy some music and laughs in Central Park. But believe it or not, after the first two weekends being called off because of the weather, this weekend the Parks Department declined to issue our permit.

So let’s hang LIVE today — 3:00  (eastern time)

Join us if you feel like it. There’s a chat room so you can make requests or just chat with the other people hanging out! All you hafta do is log-in and join us. Go to the Concert Window and set it up right now, okay? (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.)

AND THEN NEXT WEEKEND we’ll begin another season together in Central Park.

OH!!! By the way… I am raising money again for the “Permit Fund”.

Since that very first day in 1992 when I went out to Central Park with a guitar to make a little extra lunch money, my Life has become a movie… I mean, just a ridiculously unique Life that is truly beyond anything I could have imagined all those years ago. Spring is coming, so I plan to head out there again to share music and laughs, thoughts and stories and feelings with a few hundred thousand of my closest friends and people from all across the country and from different parts of the world.

dreamers-site1

I know. I know. For reasonable, sane people this is another tough week. But we’re in it together and we have work to do. I’m gonna start off today with a feel good video from our “Year End Concert” at Merkin Concert Hall here in New York City a month ago. And then, if you scroll down some more, I’m gonna share the new song which is my personal “Anti-Trump” rallying anthem… “DREAMERS LIKE ME”. And then further down, I’ll share a few more examples of why I feel like the luckiest man alive.

First, the concert video…

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”.

Saturday was…

A total washout.

So instead of “Opening Day” in Central Park, a bunch of us showed up online and we did a special edition of “The Weekly Show”. It was very cool. A little technically challenged yesterday for some reason… but still very cool. THANKS so much to every single one of you who showed up. We’ll stream LIVE again next Saturday and we’ll chat about the official opening of the season in Central Park on Memorial Day Weekend.

I HAVE A MONSTER IDEA TO RUN BY YOU GUYS!!!

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.)

Cool??

MAYBE WE’LL HAFTA REVIVE THIS SONG FOR THE SUMMER!!!

First summer of “The Trump Nightmare”

I hafta say THANK YOU to every single one of you who showed up last week for our “rain-out” edition of “The Weekly Show”. And I also hafta say… it is amazing to me that we’re sharing music and laughs, doing what we do in the park after a quarter century of weekends. No kidding. Think about all we’ve seen and been through together. This year, we just might need each other more than ever.

Every Saturday afternoon for the past 25 years I have been known in this town as “That Guitar Man from Central Park”. I just head out to a spot by a grassy little hill right near The Lake, I put my guitar on my shoulder… and something amazing happens. I really feel like the luckiest man alive.

TOMORROW is slated to be “OPENING DAY” for 2017 in Central Park!

OH!!! By the way… I am 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.)

And thank YOU for showing up here today. If you’re new around here… WELCOME! If you don’t follow me on Facebook, go there now and then keep checking back.

It’s come to my attention that a lot of people are visiting this website for the first time, just because of a few other things that are happening in my Creative Life as an artist. So I just wanna welcome you…

I know. I know. For reasonable, sane people this is another tough week. But we’re in it together and we have work to do. Today I’m gonna share a feel good video from our “Year End Concert” at Merkin Concert Hall here in New York City last December.

First, the concert video…

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”.

Here are a few images from the recent concert, captured by our photographers friends David Hayase and Sean Friedman.

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 the song says, “I hope they feel like joining us someday.” but until that day, the rest of us have work to do!!!

ROCK ON!

We plan on releasing at least 2 different versions of this song..

There’s always lots of really current and fun stuff on FACEBOOK, too. You can send a friend request and join me over there: https://www.facebook.com/david.thatguitarman

Cool?

Thanks so much for hangin’ out.

Well, tomorrow is…

Not Lookin’ Good…

I’m so excited to be starting another season as “That Guitar Man from Central Park”. But right now tomorrow is lookin’ like…

BUT!!!

We’ll stream LIVE anyway.

Listen, just because we’re getting off to a very wet, very late start to the season… we can still hang together tomorrow… right here in your computer… LIVE! We’ll do a rain-out show at 3:00 eastern time. It’ll be fun.

We’ll chat about all the shit that went down this week.  Join us if you feel like it. There’s a chat room so you can make requests or just chat with the other people hanging out! All you hafta do is log-in and join us. Go to the Concert Window and set it up right now, okay? (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.)

3:00 eastern — 2:00 central — 1:00 mountain — 12:00 noon pacific

I’ll be sharing the newest song… the one I just wrote… the one to rally all like-minded people of reason.

Okay, so we’ll try to make…

“Opening Day” this coming Saturday…

So… IT DIDN’T RAIN!!!

But it was windy, and cloudy, and chilly all day this past Saturday. So instead of humping all the equipment to Central Park for an “iffy” day, a bunch of us showed up online and we did a special edition of “The Weekly Show”. It was very cool. THANKS so much to every single one of you who showed up. We’ll stream LIVE again next Saturday when we open the season in Central Park.

I HAVE A MONSTER IDEA TO RUN BY YOU GUYS!!!

Listen… I’ll start playing at around 1:00. And then we’ll just hang out until like 5:00 or 6:00. We’ll start streaming LIVE from the park for the rest of the world at 3:00 eastern time. Join us on Concert Window!

Cool??

MAYBE WE’LL HAFTA REVIVE THIS SONG FOR THE SUMMER!!!

First summer of “The Trump Nightmare”

WEATHER-PERMITTING, I’ll head out there and get it started around 1:00 Saturday afternoon. And then I’ll play and sing with you guys until 5:00 or 6:00… or until I fall over.

But first I hafta say THANK YOU to every single one of you who showed up this week for our “online” gig… “The Weekly Show”. And I also hafta say… it is amazing to me that we’re sharing music and laughs, doing what we do in the park after a quarter century of weekends. No kidding.
