Broward Bulletin for September 2011
Hi Everyone!
Long time no talk to…..
I hope this email finds you all soaking up the last bit of this hot summer. I was on a hike this morning at Radnor Lake here in Nashville and I could feel the difference in the cooler air and the slant of the sunlight. Football weather is almost here, at least that’s what one of my friends told me yesterday.
I have spent much of this summer doing shows around the mid south with a few trips out on the road. I would like to thank the folks in San Antonio who came out for a delightful night at David & Glenda Kecks’ house concert and the Northwest Arkansas Parrothead club who got to see me play in the kitchen at Nibbles in Fayetteville. I would also like to thank Les,Tiki Phil & Kathy and the Pirates of the Puget Sound for a great stay in Seattle!

My September schedule is as follows:
Fridays @ McDougals’ Chicken from 6-9pm in Cool Springs
Saturday the 3rd, 17th and 24th @ The Bahama Breeze in Memphis from 7-11pm
I am working on a tour to San Diego and back for the early part of October from the 5th to about the 15th. If you or your club is interested in hosting a show or just having me play at your Happy hour, or favorite bar please get back to me right away so I can connect the dots for this tour.
It looks like I will drive, so if you are west of Nashville or east of San Diego I will probably drive through and can stop along the way!
*****************************************************************************************
Iwill see you at MOTM this year where I have a pretty full schedule;
TUESDAY; Nov 1, 7pm at Brent Burns Songwriter show
WEDNESDAY; Nov 2, 1-3 pm. Casa Marina by the pool

Broward Bulletin January 2011

Hi Everyone!
I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year.  Did you make out a set of goals for the coming year? I always try to get that done by the first week of January and am now looking at ways to get into action.

First the weather report from my window says: SNOW! There is white stuff everywhere in the south today. I am gonna go take a walk in it in a little bit. Made a big pot of soup to go along with the winter offerings.

OK, I will be out at Cody’s Pub in Goodlettsville this coming Saturday for a song writer round at 7:00.
Cody’s Pub
1201 Twelve Stones Crossing
Goodlettsville, TN
Please come out if you can!

We had a great show at the Mexicali Grill in Franklin last week and I want to thank all of my friends that came out for a little fun & food. We will be back on February the 12th, starting at 6:00 for another dose of fun & frivolity.

I am starting to fill out my calendar for the year and am looking at trips to Texas, Florida, the upper midwest, Seattle and the Northwest, Utah and Boise, the Left coast, the Gulf coast and the south. The challenge  for me is to get  the people aware of where I will be in time to put additional shows on the calendar.
Please let me know if you are in one of the above regions and would like to have me play a show for you this year with the approximate time that works for you. I am trying to do between 6 and 9 trips this year of about 10 days each.

Check out the Website www.musicmike.net for music and videos and upcoming dates!
I also want to thank all of the people that have bought my cds at CDBaby.com for the support.

As always, if you no longer want to receive these bulletins, please respond with delete in the box. Write me back if you have the time as I always like to hear from you.
On to the New Year!
Mike
