- my SAC workshop this Saturday;
- SAC's "Date with a Demo" event next Thursday (Feb 8/07); and
- my first meeting as a guest with the Toronto Songwriters Association next Friday (Feb 9/07).
The TSA Theme is "Blues". I've written a blues song called Encore which has the hook of "Once more my love" running through it. I'll post the lyrics and (if I record it) a link to an mp3 file in the future.
One month in 2007 is already gone and I'm still not published... :(

Well, Jeffie and I attended the Original Sundays event on Sunday afternoon. It was a wonderful location at the Woodhouse Lounge and we spoke with Kim Boyce who opened the show. It's a great show and I hope I get a chance to play it one day... I'll definitely be returning...

A special thanks to LiANA Di Marco once again for allowing me to be her guest at the Renaissance Cafe on Saturday Night... see the Signboard... I'm one of the "guests".
The set started with George Stojkovic, then LiANA with her set, then Lynn Harrison (very sweet sound there) and Paul Tavydas. Then I came on... My set was:
A thanks to Jeff for coming out to lend me support (and Rico & Petie too!)
I'm glad I did it by myself though I was a tad nervous and rushed through the songs... in the end, I had a good time doing the "gig".

My friend Jeff has been very kind and encouraging. He's showing up with my buddies Rico & Pete on Saturday nite as well... as he tells me (when I told him I was nervous):
- First of all you can do this and once you complete the first song you won't want to get off the stage. Remember your performances with Santina - they were a lot of fun. No one does your songs vocally better than you. You have a unique sound that goes well with your genre of music. At the end of the
day, even if no one likes it, who cares - just getting up there and doing it
is more than most of the world could ever say.
Secondly, if you want me to bring my guitar down and just play some back up on a few songs - no problem...
I have to admit that the offer to back me up is very tempting, but I do want to do one of these on my own one time, so why not now? Wish me luck (still have to pick a set of 4 to 6 songs to play)...

Anywho, I'm on at 11:15 p.m. so I can put back a few for courage before my set begins... Wish me luck!
I've also arranged to attend Original Sundays with my buddy Jeff on the 21st... so this upcoming weekend will be music-heavy... just what I need right now...

I wrote back to LiANA and accepted her invitation... now, I'll wait and see if this is some sort of mistake... ;)
