Old Friends, New Venue

Friday night will find me sharing the stage with Patchwork once again. Rick, Holly and I always enjoy playing together. We have fun, and that usually translates into everybody having a good time.
We’ll be playing on the north side of Indianapolis, at a new venue for us. Bar Louie is located in Carmel at 14299 Clay Terrace Blvd. It’s an over-21 venue, but it’s also smoke-free. This will be our first time there, and we hope not the last.
You may notice that after December, there’s not a lot on the calendar. That’s intentional. After a pretty intense performance schedule this year, I want to lay back for a couple of months. During January and February, I’ll be building the calendar for 2010. I’ll also polish up some new tunes and get ready for a year of fun at festivals and farmers’ markets, coffee shops and churches.
As the year winds down and Christmas approaches, the pace seems to pick up. So much needs to be done, but don’t forget to pause every now and then and take a breath. Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the season so that when Christmas arrives, you’ll have joy enough to share.
Advent blessings,
Dean
