JULY --my last gigs for this pregnancy :)

I have "put in my notice" and decided to finish off July and that will be it until next year....depending on Frankie's temperament! I have had lots of fun and felt so fulfilled in successfully turning a hobby into extra money, and having a chance to express myself in music. I have appreciated all the support and the chances given me and look forward to getting back into it with some fresh material next year.

     Here are my last gigs this month at NYLO:

Friday  July 5th            7p-10p      NYLO Las Colinas (Irving)     
Wednesday  July 10th   6p-9p       NYLO Las Colinas (Irving)
Thursday  July 11th       6p-9p       NYLO Las Colinas (Irving)
Friday    July 19th         7p-10p     NYLO Las Colinas (Irving)
Wednesday  July 24th    6p-9p      NYLO Las Colinas (Irving)

And here is the address: 
1001 W Royal Lane
Irving TX 75039

NYLO is a modern hotel modeled after New York lofts. It has a restaurant/bar called "The Loft" that has great food and drinks, a library, pool table, beautiful pool with an outdoor bar and luxurious seating in and out.

I'm no longer on facebook, and may be slowly weaning myself from the stage for the rest of the pregnancy, but for now my NYLO gigs are still going :)
   We have moved further north to Aubrey, so if I should want to get back into the live music scene, I might go look in Denton. Here are June's dates for now:

See you there!

We've Dallas!

We have successfully completed our move to the DFW area, and settled least for a few months as I'm happy to announce we are building a home north of Dallas!
   I have booked a few gigs in the coming month that I want to share here-- I played my first gig on friday night (jan 25th) at the luxurious NYLO/Las Colinas Hotel Bar, "The Loft".

It was an awesome bar and I hooked up my mixer to their system without any issues. It was nice because my nerves went away since most of the time everyone was busy enjoying each other's company, the ambiance and the drinks, that I could really get comfortable. Eventually I wondered if people were enjoying my music at all and had doubts. But around 8:30/9pm people started coming in and talking and a few different people told me they didn't even know it was live music---they thought it was a track! I was really flattered by that. I ended up playing over 4 hrs, since I started early and played late, but I enjoyed myself even though my throat dried up almost had been a month since I played/sang! I knew I was the right fit for this venue when, upon packing up, the NYLO music (they turn on when there isn't live music) played this track (one of my favorite bands):
So I will be playing at NYLO/Las Colinas again next month. :)

Next up is the adorable 19th century Victorian home converted to a restaurant called "Sip & Savor". Retaining it's original cozy charm, diners & winers can share intimate meals here in one of their 4 dining rooms. I will be playing music on the small loft upstairs but the beautiful wood floors and shape of the home provide excellent acoustics to be enjoyed throughout the restaurant. Definitely a great place to bring either a date, or a group of close friends (you can reserve a whole room!) Please stop by and support this local business, and local music!
 Thank you to everyone for your support--I look forward to many more opportunities to play my music in and around Dallas!
