Okay, this coming Saturday…

We’ll do it right!

ON LONG HOLIDAY WEEKENDS I’VE GOT A LITTLE TRADITION I PULL OFF… BUT SINCE IT RAINED LAST WEEKEND, WE’LL DO IT THIS SATURDAY INSTEAD.

Last Saturday the rain came at 3:00 — right in the middle of our day. So this weekend, I’m gonna do something I’ve done for the past couple of decades… just to say “thank you” to every single person who has ever spent one afternoon with me in Central Park.

Here’s a map to show you exactly where!

Try to get there by 3:00 or before this Saturday.

Got a feeling we’re gonna have another “typically amazing” day. It’s what usually happens. I mean, over the course of an afternoon a few thousand people gather on that little grassy hill to share music and laughs, stories and thoughts and feelings… hundreds of New Yorkers, and people from all across the country and different parts of the world. Often, DANCING BREAKS OUT!!! I mean… dancing spontaneously breaks out on the path, Pure joy. Now, 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.

 

If YOU have any photos or video from this past Saturday, please shoot them to me on Facebook, okay?

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

Cool?

Thanks so much for hangin’ out.

Well…

WE TRIED.

Y’know? In my life experience, every time I’ve ever gotten wet… I’ve always gotten dry again.

We tried.
 
I headed out to Central Park and cranked up around 12:45 with a pretty good feeling the rain was gonna come at around 3:00. And right on cue, my pal Dean Love checked the radar at about 2:45, and looking south, the sky looked like night. So it was more quick version of “Tom Cruise Scares Me” and we packed up and ran for it. Got all of the equipment in the van just as it started to POUR. (A disappointing day, but pretty excellent timing.)

 

ON LONG HOLIDAY WEEKENDS I’VE GOT A LITTLE TRADITION I PULL OFF… BUT SINCE THE WEATHER DIDN’T COOPERATE, WE’LL DO IT NEXT SATURDAY INSTEAD.

Here’s a map to show you exactly where!

Last Saturday was another one of those days… those days that keep me in a nearly constant state of wonder and gratitude. No kidding. Our photographer friends, Sean Friedman and David Hayase were out there again with their cameras. So today we’ve got a few images they captured.

I mean, over the course of the afternoon a few thousand people gathered again on that little grassy hill to share music and laughs, stories and thoughts and feelings… hundreds of New Yorkers, and people from all across the country and different parts of the world. DANCING BROKE OUT… AGAIN!!! I mean… lots of dancing spontaneously broke out on the path, Pure joy. Now, 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.

TODAY…

Gonna try my best…

Okay… keeping one eye on the sky and one eye on the radar this morning. I’m gonna try my best to get out to Central Park today. The forecast is lookin’ shaky but the radar is lookin’ okay right now. I’ll make the call as early as I can. Hoping for another typically amazing day. If you’re gonna be here in town I hope I see you out there. I’ll crank up around 1:00 and play until 5:00 or 6:00… or until I fall over.

Check back here around 10:30 or 11:00

ON LONG HOLIDAY WEEKENDS I’VE USUALLY GOT A LITTLE TRADITION I PULL OFF… BUT WITH THE WEATHER LOOKIN’ THIS “IFFY” I THINK WE’LL DO IT NEXT SATURDAY INSTEAD.

Tomorrow…

Staying in town?

Okay… we’re gonna hafta keep our eyes on the radar to see what kind of day we’re gonna have tomorrow weather-wise. But I am going to do my best to get out to “The Hill” in Central Park. Check back in the morning, okay? ‘Cause if the weather looks good, I’ll take off my shoes, put my guitar on my shoulder again and see what happens. My best guess is… it will be another typically amazing day. If you’re gonna be here in town I hope I see you out there. I’ll crank up around 1:00 and play until 5:00 or 6:00… or until I fall over.

BUT ON LONG HOLIDAY WEEKENDS I’VE GOT A LITTLE TRADITION… SOMETHING KINDA CRAZY AND SPECIAL. SO TRY TO BE THERE AROUND 3:00!!!

What can I say?

THANKS AGAIN!

This was another one of those days… those days that keep me in a nearly constant state of wonder and gratitude. No kidding. Our photographer friends, Sean Friedman and David Hayase were out there again with their cameras. So I’ll be back here and on Facebook with captured moments from this Saturday.

I mean, over the course of the afternoon a few thousand people gathered again on that little grassy hill to share music and laughs, stories and thoughts and feelings… hundreds of New Yorkers, and people from all across the country and different parts of the world. DANCING BROKE OUT!!! I mean… lots of dancing spontaneously broke out on the path, Pure joy. Now, 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.

Here are a few moments from earlier in the summer, to hold us over until I can post the new photos from Saturday. (But you get the idea.)

This year, in light of all the insanity in this country, we just might need each other more than ever. 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.

If YOU have any photos or video from this past Saturday, please shoot them to me on Facebook, okay?

Are you wondering?

The Sun is coming out today!

Maybe we’ll get a slightly later start to let the ground dry a little.

But… YES!

YES! I will head out to “The Hill” in Central Park on Saturday. I’ll take off my shoes, put my guitar on my shoulder again and see what happens. My best guess is… it will be another typically amazing day. If you’re gonna be here in town I hope I see you out there. I’ll crank up around 1:00 and play until 5:00 or 6:00… or until I fall over.

Here’s a map to show you exactly where!

Over the course of an afternoon a few thousand people usually gather on that little grassy hill to share music and laughs, stories and thoughts and feelings… hundreds of New Yorkers, and people from all across the country and different parts of the world. Some hang for 15 minutes, some for 5 hours. And sometimes DANCING BREAKS OUT!!! I mean… lots of dancing spontaneously on the path. Pure joy. Now, 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.

We probably won’t stream LIVE this week.

I’m sorry. It’s strictly a business decision. Last time, only a handful of people showed up online. From a purely monetary perspective, I can’t ask my pal Dean to shoot for 90 minutes for “paper route money”. Ha! Just not worth it. So maybe we’ll save “The Weekly show” for rain-outs and special occasions.

This year, in light of all the insanity in this country, we just might need each other more than ever. 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.

SATURDAY IN CENTRAL PARK!

Okay,  couple of things.

YES! I will head out to “The Hill” in Central Park on Saturday. I’ll take off my shoes, put my guitar on my shoulder again and see what happens.

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.

Already thinking about…

NEXT weekend!!!

Instead of hanging out at “The Hill” in the rain this week, 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… but hopefully we’ll be streaming LIVE FROM CENTRAL PARK!!!

Last Saturday… we did it again! I mean, over the course of the afternoon a few thousand people gathered again on that little grassy hill to share music and laughs, stories and thoughts and feelings… hundreds of New Yorkers, and people from all across the country and different parts of the world. DANCING BROKE OUT!!! I mean… lots of dancing spontaneously broke out on the path, Pure joy. Teresa came out to share a bunch of songs. Now, 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 last Saturday was just another “typically amazing” day.

This year, in light of all the insanity in this country, we just might need each other more than ever. 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.

If YOU have any photos or video from this past Saturday, please shoot them to me on Facebook, okay?

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. 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…

Today… let’s hang out!

LIVE ONLINE!

SORRY I CAN’T BE IN CENTRAL PARK TODAY! Listen, it’s lookin’ a little wet and nasty out there today. I would be out at “The Hill” in Central Park every Saturday if I could be. But I also need The Parks Department to issue the Special Events Permit for which I apply. Some weekends they don’t. This is one of those weekends.

So… I’LL STREAM LIVE FROM MY BRAND NEW STUDIO IN MY NEW APARTMENT.

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.)

5:00 eastern — 4:00 central — 3:00 mountain — 2:00 pacific

We’ll chat about all the shit that went down this week. I’ll bring the guitar.  I’ll be sharing the newest song… the one I just wrote… the one to rally all like-minded people of reason.

AND THEN NEXT WEEKEND we’ll be back 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.

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.
