Once the next couple weeks of holiday craziness are over, I should be able to sit down for some quality time with the keyboard. I'm looking forward to letting you hear what I come up with :)
Just a reminder: If you are planning on coming to the Brink Lounge for New Year's Eve, make sure you give them a call and reserve a table. It's cheaper and easier than just showing up, so why not do it now? 608-661-8599

Prepare to be rocked, Joliet! PianoFondue is playing the Hollywood Casino this evening, and it should be a good time :)
I'm going to try getting some writing done while in the hotel here. I've been slacking off as of late, and I want to get up to the 10-12 new songs for next year's album before January. Here we go...

Had a great show last night at Monk's at the Wilderness in Wisconsin Dells. Fun folks, good food, yummy drinks. I had some crazy requests too... "Rock Lobster" comes to mind!
Thanks to everyone who came out. I'll be back at Monk's on November 19 with PianoFondue dueling pianos, and back solo in the Dells Thanksgiving Saturday at Monk's downtown.
The rest of this weekend is gonna be a blast. I'm dueling with PF in Davenport, IA on Friday and Saturday. Chris, Bobby, and I are dedicating the weekend to fun guys' time. Giddy-up!

After a WONDERFUL trip down to Mississippi, we are back safe and sound in Madison. Francie and I had a great show at Watson's. It was fun seeing all of the old friends again.

Main Street every Wednesday from 9pm to midnight.

Hooray! Ring the bells, bang the drums! The album is done and the CDs are in. You can grab your copy at my next show for $10, or you can go online to CD Baby and order the CD or download mp3s. It will also soon be available on iTunes, Rhapsody, Zune, etc.
I want to thank everyone who was involved in this process. Here is the text from my "thank you" panel on the CD cover. It's an incomplete list, but here we go...
Thanks to my family - Mom, Dad, and Jessica.
Thanks to my friends for all their encouragement and inspiration through the years - Francie Phelps, Brandon & Carol Baxter, Chris Lange & Adam Nelson with PianoFondue, Jeffrey John, Katy & Joey Svec, Geeg & Glen Drum, J.P. Croake & Shira Phelps, and my ninjas - Kristel & Sara. Thanks to the folks over at 105.5 Triple M - especially those behind the Project M songwriting competition.
Thanks to the venues who supported my original music - Pat & Sue at Fins; Elizabeth, Matt & Kurt at the Brink Lounge; Corey & Rico at Plan B; Jack & Julie at the Ivory Room; Eric & Dan at Monks; and Donald at Watson's.
Education is paramount to the future of American music. I'd like to thank my childhood piano teacher - Marilyn Leone; my public school music teachers from Long Beach - Carol Embry, John Gipson, Dr. Jim Hamilton, and Shane McElveen; and the music faculty at Millsaps - Drs. Tim & Cheryl Coker, Chris Brunt, Elizabeth Moak, and Dr. Jonathan Sweat.
Thank you all...

I love doing a show with requests. It keeps me on my toes and helps tremendously with crowd interaction. Also, every once in a while, it lets the audience express a bit of their artistic side! Every week or so I get a request with a little something extra--a drawing, a joke, etc. I thought a great way to share them with you and to give the artist a little well-deserved (albeit anonymous) recognition would be to keep a photo album of the little masterpieces. You can find it here (or by clicking on the above photo). I'll be keeping it updated as the requests come in. See you at the next show!
