Back on the Rock - Reflecting on Summer Tour 2022 and getting Back in Action in Key West

This years summer tour was the longest and most lucrative East Coast summer tour to date for me. There were many chapters: gigs in Chincoteague, VA  and Jersey Shore, then visit with friends in Philly, visits with family in Lehigh Valley, PA, more gigs at Jersey Shore, Bethlehem Musikfest, more gigs any Jersey shore, camping out with my sister two weekends in Delaware, gigs in DE and OCMD, Lots of surfing my new 9'6" SUP board, a little kite-boarding, 4 rounds of Disc Golf, Good times with family and friends, old and new... My summer tour ended in Chincoteague, VA, where I had the honor of playing at The Island Theater, Chincoteague, VA. It was the first time that I had been asked to play a theater as a solo performer. The show went well and the people of Chincoteague gave me a very warm welcome! After the concert, I decided it was high time that I do something about the roof of my van, which had been leaking for years and getting worse... It reached a critical point when buckets of water were coming through my van roof.  The moisture getting into my van had been destroying my music equipment and personal belongings. I was constantly working to dry out my van. With hurricane IAN on the way, I decided something had to be done. So, I took the better part of a month to learn about auto-body repair and do the roof repair job myself. With the help and guidance of some amazingly kind and helpful people in Chincoteague, I was able to make the much needed repairs. Special Thank You to my good friends and fans Ted & Kaye Galletly for allowing me to find the time and space to do such a project in the comfort of their beautiful bay-view house in Chincoteague!
