Dave Crossland Meganews - Kerrville Mainstage, Open Rehearsal, BB King's & A New Agent

Hello you amazing world,



Got some sweet stuff to tell you about --new agent, hot tickets, and gigs at some very cool rooms and festivals, but first:





OPEN REHEARSAL TOMORROW NIGHT at the WARREN TAVERN in CHARLESTOWN, MA, 10:30 PM - PUBLIC INVITED



SAT 5/19

Charlestown, MA

Warren Tavern

2 Pleasant Street

617-241-8142

http://www.warrentavern.com

10:30 PM (one set only so be sure to get there before we start)



That's right, I've been working up a band to play the Kerrville Folk Festival mainstage in a couple weeks and you're all invited to our last rehearsal before we fly to Texas.  In the lineup are most of the players on "Pearl": Jimmy Ryan (mandolin), Marc Hickox (bass) and Mike Piehl (drums).  Also, Rich Feridun, from Amy Speace's Tearjerks, will be joining us at Kerrville to add some guitar to the mix.



So come on down to the Tavern for a rare and intimate preview and send us off to the Lone Star State in style...





TICKETS to JOHN WAITE & YOURS TRULY @ B.B. KING'S in NYC, 7/18/07



Good people, part of the deal on this gig is that we get paid by the number of tickets we sell, so if you or someone you know wants to make it to this very cool venue, support your independent musician and drop Mary a line so she can set you up at a mere 25 bucks a pop:  mailto:mary@davecrossland.com





INTRODUCING... AGENT JAKE



And now, I'd like to give Mary the Wonderful an enormous thank you for making it possible to issue the following announcement:



Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me immense pleasure to introduce to you, a fine and upstanding citizen of our great republic, a young man with his finger on the musical pulse of our nation, an avid reader of Pollstar (http://www.pollstar.com/tour/searchall.pl?By=Artist&Content=davecrossland), a man constantly on the phone and on the go, a gentleman, a scholar, and the newest member of the Dave Crossland Music Team, my rockin' new agent, Mr. Jake Kennedy.



Jake (we call him "Ari") hasn't even started yet and he's already hooked me up with some majorly hip giggage:  Playing in front of Kenny Loggins in a sold-out hall in NJ last month, opening for John Waite at B.B. King's Lounge in NYC this July, the World Cafe, the Great Waters Folk Fest, and a bunch more stuff on the way.  All this, and the man is a full-time scholar working on his undergraduate degree --until this weekend.  So please send Ari a hearty congratulations on his well-earned graduation this Saturday and wish him a bright, bright future (like he needs any help) ahead.  Well done, Ari, your mom should be proud.







Pretty cool, ey?  And just in case you don't know this already, an agent is not the same as a manager.  The rockin' agent gets you the rockin' gigs and the rockin' manager gets you the rockin' career.  (Anybody seen "Entourage"?)  So make no mistake, Wonderful Mary Pittari continues to be my awesome manager, and will now have more time to focus on labels, movies, publishing, and everything else.



So, before I sign off with the giggage, thanks again to each and every one of you for your enormous support.  Without you, none of this stuff would be happening and my life would be extremely boring.  I am honored and humbled, and I can't wait to see you all, out there in this big, wide, beautiful world.



With love, peace & thanks,

Your Dave
