Sat., January 5    7:30-10:30pm   The Ottsville Inn, 245 Durham Rd., Ottsville PA (just off PA 611, about 12mi. N of Doylestown)   My first paying gig of the New Year…and at a great little bar that’s just 8 miles from home!  I’d love for this to become a regular gig, so I hope to see your smiling faces in the room. Awesome food and a friendly atmosphere…y’all come!  https://www.facebook.com/The-Ottsville-Inn-818147154889088/

Sat., Feb. 2   6 – 8pm   Aunt Dee Dee’s  52 Main St. (corner of Bloomfield Ave.), Flemington NJ   I always have a dandy time playing this room and am so glad it’s become a regular thing. Aunt Dee Dee’s is cozy, informal, and a great place for a nice sit-down supper, even if you’re on the go. I hope my Flemington-area friends will A) stop by for a listen and B) become regular patrons of this local eatery. Owner/chef Wendy and her crew are the best!  (FYI: BYOB=OK)https://www.facebook.com/auntdeedeesnj/

Sunday, February 10  11am-1pm “Acoustic Sunday Brunch” at the Asbury Coffee Mill, 432 Old Main St., Asbury NJ 08802  Live is too short to drink bad coffee! ACM serves up the good stuff, plus home-baked treats and a tasty selection of cooked-to-order breakfast items AND some fine local performers playing live every Sunday. I always look forwards to playing this cozy, comfy, family-operated café.  Hopefully, you’ll make it one of you favorites, too.   https://www.facebook.com/asburycoffeemill/

Sat., February 16   8-11pm   Harper’s Table, NJ Rt. 31N, Annandale, NJ   This will be my first appearance (not counting a couple of open mics) at this recently renovated and re-opened restaurant/bar. Harper’s offers an extensive menu (and it’s all really good) and a large variety of draught beers (and some fine sippin’ whiskies) The staff is young, hip, fun, and really good at what they do. https://www.facebook.com/harpersclinton/?epa=SEARCH_BOX

Sat., February 23  7pm – 1pm “Country Music Night” at William’s Irish Tavern   101 E. Washington Ave (NJ Rt. 57),   Washington, NJ   Back in the Ancient Times, I occasionally patronized his dandy little neighborhood bar when it was known as “Felix’s Tavern”. I’m pretty stoked about going back 30 years later with a guitar hanging around my neck. Williams Irish Tavern offers terrific “bar food” and very friendly service. I’ll be playing the “live” portion of “Country Music Night”, dipping into my stash of “old-school” country tunes and other songs about what goes on out past where the sidewalk ends from 7-10pm, followed by DJs spinning more contemporary country tunes from 10pm ’til closing….Check this “facebook event” link for more details: https://www.facebook.com/events/615833745537526/
