Over the last ten years, I've been making my living playing music in some of the hottest clubs in South Florida (In all fairness, many of the clubs are outdoors, and they're more humid than hot).
I can't say that I don't enjoy singing the same five Buffet songs to drunken bar patrons, who run for dear life at the mere mention of an original song. It's a better way to make a living, than anything else I am qualified for (Do they still pay people to dig ditches?). However, I've managed to squeeze in a few of my own compositions over the years, and found I was able to captivate even the most "Brown Eyed Girl", "American Pie" demanding audiences.
You will find no hugs, no messages, no political statements, and no pining for love, on my CD "Beer and Fireworks", just fun and silliness. Who couldn't use more of that?
