Roy Schneider, a fine musician as well as a talented cartoonist, recently retired from drawing his daily strip, The Humble Stumble. That meant he had time to do this tour poster for me.

Rubber Souldiers 5/7/08
Bob Minkin posted some nice photos of the May 7 Rubber Souldiers show at the Iron Springs Pub in Fairfax. Sixteen images in all.

Chris Rowan showed up unable to speak, let alone sing, so we sent him home. It was Lorin Rowan, Robin Sylvester and me, with some vocal help from my friends Eric Rawlins and Phil Catalfo and a little squeezebox from Miguel Amor.

House Concerts In Your Home

In many cases, it’s a much more pleasant situation for both performer and audience. House concerts provide an intimate setting in which the music is the main event and beer sales aren’t the main determinant of success. A performer like me who doesn’t draw big crowds too often (“That’s months away,” as Martin Mull once said) has a hard time making a tour happen when the venues are clubs that need a hundred or more people to make their nut.

House concerts often include potluck dinners and other pleasant social interactions. Everybody wins!

For more information on how it’s done, click the image above or this link: To talk with me about having me play a concert in your home, send email to david [at] – or just post a message here!
