Todays Sports Villains

We tend to think because if it is in the media that it is a new phenomenon. Major sport figures being charged with spousal or girlfriend abuse or drug usage. Don't get me wrong it should be reported and the players should be dealt with harshly, especially those charged with abuse. In my opinion that should be given a pink slip....bye bye, find a new job. With drugs they should be given an opportunity to rehabilitate themselves. My point is, this is not new, this not generational, this has been happening since the beginning. The only difference is todays athlete can't hide behind the protection of their team or the media, because they did't want players reputations ruined. So don't be naive. The bad ones have always been with us, now they are getting called out and punished for their stupidity. rg

More Shows added & The life of a solo musician

I have added some additional shows to the list. I hope some of you can make it. On a side note, I host a Song & Story Singer Songwriter show every third Friday of the month at Banter in Denton Texas. I select 4 singer songwriters and they tell a little story about the song they wrote. It is form 8pm until 10pm. So, each artist gets about 6 songs each. We have been doing it now for almost a year. I volunteered to do this for two reasons. First to get Singer Songwriters more recognition and hopeful more money and to help Banter Bistro. We have been bringing in on average around 25 to 50 people depending on the night and how many come into see a particle performer. However, with all that said the tips these people get is way below par and the reason is not the performance. People are very attentive and very receptive. Staying the entire show. So for those of you who are not singer songwriters let me tell you that what we do is not easy. We write the lyrics, place the lyrics to music, then practice practice practice and practice again until we feel like we are ready to perform. Then we repeat the process over and over again. To get up in front of a crowd of strangers and sing songs that are personal to us takes a lot of nerve. After all these songs are a part of us and we are sharing it with you. So, my question is how much is it worth to you to listen to someone who is playing for FREE and you are enjoying the music. Some of us make a living doing this. Ask yourself, would you expect a plumber to come out and fix a leaking pipe for free???? They would laugh at you. But, singer songwriters most of the time have no other option to play for free and depend on you the audience to compensate them for their hard. Next time you are out for the evening and there is a person on a stage singing and you see a tip jar, please show them you really do care. Even if it is $1.00 they will appreciate it. Peace love and music Rg

My Weekend!!

It's 1:30am on Sunday morning and I'm thinking about my next gig. I had a great show at Shaw's Patio & Grill Friday evening....too great..because I woke up at 950am and I had a 10am gig. Luckily I dress fast and this gig was only 3 miles away. Spent the morning playing music and hangin out with my friends. I feel like I just need that chance to open for somebody. You know what I mean..just give me a chance to sing in front of a large listening audience. So, today is Father's Day and I will spend the morning skyping with my son in Korea and the afternoon having lunch with my youngest son. Then it's off to another gig in Fort Worth. This time Zio Carlos Magnolia Brew House. I love this one!! Always have a good time playing there. Okay I am off for now Peace Love and Music my friends and fans Rg
