"And surprise guests which I'm not at liberty
to talk about for various reasons," Gravy said. That's
I played an acoustic set at a
Benefit dinner for Seva
on Wavy Gravy's 69th Birthday. The dinner was held at
the Downtown Restaurant in Berkeley, CA. After dinner
everyone went to continue the party at the Berkeley Community
Theater for the big show with
Phil Lesh and Friends.
I'm taking a break from playing
at the Petaluma Coffee Cafe
on Saturdays. I worked on the Temple of Dreams for Burning
Man 2005. I worked with David Best and the Temple
Crew to make an art piece in San Francisco, California at
Hayes and Octavia, during May 2005. The art piece is
like the Burning Man Temples, only smaller (see the photo).

Here to find out more about "Blind Man's Stick"
and "New Day Coming". As I started
writing the folk rock ballad "Blind Man's Stick",
I had a picture in my head of a little cabin up in some remote
mountain range, and a soldier comes limping home from distant
wars. This CD also includes some blazing rock n' rock
on the song, "New Day Coming".
Here to find out more about "Thank God I'm in Cody"
EP. The music uses period instruments such as
the banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and acoustic guitars, as well
as vocal harmonies; to create the feeling of an old west bar
room. This music was written in honor of my personal love
for the American Western frontier of Wyoming, Montana, and
the cowboy's life.
By popular request, I
added a link so people can buy the 12
String Guitar CD of
solo acoustic guitar music online.

in August 2004. I'll was out there in the desert for three
weeks, helping build the "Temple of the Stars".
After getting back from Burning Man, I recorded this instrumental
guitar album of the music I composed for the temples at Burning
Man from 2001 to 2004.
friends Dearbhla and Aprile released their movie ,"Dust
Devils", about the Burning Man festival on DVD in 2004.
If you want to get an idea about what Burning Man is like,
then I suggest watching this movie. There are a couple of
brief video shots of me playing guitar in one of the temples.
For more information on "Dust Devils" Dearbhla and
Aprile have a website at http://www.purpleproductions.net
I got mentioned in the first
issue of Petaluma Magazine in 2004 for my Saturday morning
music at the Petaluma Coffee
Cafe in Petaluma, California.
