I have been away for some time. Sometimes you have to get away and I did this over the last year with good friends visiting St. Lucia and The Abacos. Sailing has become great therapy and has been bittersweet, losing two of my closest sailor friends as of late. Alan Stewart and Jim Neece have taught me to keep striving for what I believe in and never take anyone or anything for granted. These were two of the most generous, supportive souls anyone could know, and words cannot express the gratitude and heartache that come up when I remember their lives.

Lauren Mazoch is a bright young star and I had the pleasure of bringing her to Patsy’s where she brought the house down. We swapped some songs at the Spring Fling and then the ensemble joined by Dean Stinsmuehlen on upright bass played a brief acoustic set when the power went out.
Great night with Chuck Hawthorne at Patsy’s Cafe. Joined by Peggy Wright for the break and had her and Dana McBride singing along…Don’t Hold Back the Love!
Leslie Krafka came up from Houston to play at Liberty Tree. We had a nice jam on Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Drunken Poet’s Dream,” and I don’t know how I had let that song slip by me before. She makes it her own!
“Let’s Boat” was an awesome Lake Travis party barge 5 hour cruise with Will’s Ensemble sandwiched in between performers Doug Marsh, Jessica Shepherd and The Rocking Gospel Project. Swimming, awesome food and dancing to music under the stars with the lake being up from all the rain this year. This is a yearly event so keep up with our site, it’s one you don’t want to miss!
