While you all learn to knit, and as so many musicians retool their demolished touring schedules, I'm a gonna make muddy lemonade at The Mudpuddle Shop this Fri and Sat Night March 27th and 28th, streaming from the Puddle at 7pm, CA time. The two shows are hosted by the same SoCal hosts in Altadena and Carpinteria where my weekend shows got cancelled. So they'll be watching at home with you all, and helping the feeds and links along, as we move the shows from the clubs to the couches via our Facebook pages, Event Pages, and the "FB Live" streaming links. I will do my best to meet and greet listeners, between songs or on a mid show break, with the helps of the cohosts :). The cohosts will help share the FB Live stream links around on my FB page and other FB walls, to help join us together on couches in the main feed. Smaller FB watch parties may also form, I think anyone can create a watch party once you're at the feed in FB. Glad some of you know how to do that, but you can always watch the MAIN feed no matter what, which is were I can see the comments that come in :). I have two virtual gadgets working - an iPhone 6 and a 2012 MacBook, which helps toss the show spaghetti on your walls. The reading of comments while I'm playing may or may not be a priority, but within the Mudpuddle walls, I have a few mics set up and a couple vibey lights - it will a fun experiment. Life is an experiment, and sometimes ya blow up the lab. Enjoy from your couches, try not to squint too close at my mistakes and glitches as I figure out the new normal. I'll do a bunch of songs, a few requests, a couple bad jokes, and some person to person ping pong with the hosts as we go live from The Mudpuddle Shop. 

The “Aluminum Oasis” demo collection of songs, now on Bandcamp. Download as singles or all 11 songs, here: https://michaelmcnevin.bandcamp.com/releases

The FB Event Pages listed above for Fri and Sat will be "cohosted". As the FB Live feeds go online for these canceled SoCal shows, the hosts are all onboard for our new normal. Friday cohosts Dolly Ramirez and Jean-Jacques Schoch (JJ) for the Altadena series, and Saturday host Arturo Tello & Palm Loft Gallery in Carpinteria, they will be watching and helping with the pasting of links to you all so you can find the feeds, enjoy the puddle to couch experience. They'll also post the occasional PayPal and Venmo tip jar addresses on the FB walls. I'll also have the tip jars scribbled in large marker on some poster board. That won't be pretty, but it will be muddy. 

NOTE: www.michaelmcnevin.com, is getting a facelift. It has imigrated into a Bandzoogle Site. On it you will find some of my older releases, but is being updated soon with new template and content. There's also now a donation button, to support Michael's tour hiatus due to Corona Virus, and the effort to keep The Mudpuddle Shop doors open, as we ride out the year until things are back to normal. 

Feb21

Hey Texas, PA, NJ, NY, and Florida, and friendswith friends in those places. Playing a TX trip in late January in Kerrville and San Antonio, includes a a live audience taping of the new "Music & Conversation" TV show (similar format to "Actors Studio" tv series). That starts at 7pm, it's free, at Schreiner University. Come on down and be a part of the studio audience. Also playing San Antonio shows with pal Claude Butch Morgan & The Blast. Then Mid February off to FLA & PA & NY & NJ, with Tom Prasada-Rao in Ft Lauderdale, Gregg Cagno in Philly, doing a Dan Hayes hosted HC in upstate NY, and a birthday House Concert for Arpie in Plainfield NJ. All the details are below if you scroll.

Before all the important gig info below, here's some trivia: Cagno played The Mudpuddle Shop in Niles last month as part of a 50th birthday celebration for himself surfing many of our prime beaches in NoCal. He's surfed all his life, on the beaches of NJ. Who knew? The House concert in Upstate NY is hosted by none other than Dan Hayes, who used to book The Night Eagle, one of my very favorite concert spaces in the North East. Fond memories in the upstate NY dairy land hamlets of Oxford, Sherberne, Cooperstown, Ithaca. Arpie puts on a wonderful series in Plainfield, and this time it's HIS birthday celebration. We could surf? Or just drink coffee and watch surfers. Arpie makes a mean cup of high end coffee, with an official shingle that reads something like this: AHRRE'S COFFEE ROASTERY, "AHRRE'S IS FRESHER THAN THEIRS", AKA Ahrre Maros, Ahrre's Coffee, aka Arpie. He caffeinates many folks all over NJ & NY with his coffees, and the best of his beans can be delivered to you in California or Texas or anywhere else. It has been 15 years TO THE DAY that I was gigging in Phoenixville PA, during snow falls that broke records from 1902, I was up and down the eastern seaboard running from the snow. Every town I played; DC, Philly, NYC, got a foot and half on it the day after I left. All my gigs were good, and my travels NORTH helped me escape this Mid Atlantic blast. I landed at Sonny Oaks place on the Monday after the NYC gig, helped her shovel her driveway and walks for two straight days at her in the Catskills, dubbed "Winter Work Camp For Wayward Californians". I wrote a Valentin'es Day themed song titled "Phoenixville" at the beginning of that trip in the attic guest room above a thrift store down the street from Steel City Coffeehouse outside of Philly. This upcoming trip, I'll play the same song, on Feb 13th, the day I wrote it 15 years ago, in a thrift store in Swarthmore PA, outside of Philly. My old soccer goalie Andy and his wife Amy will be in attendance, whom I have not seen since maybe my soccer playing days, from the 80s', our team was The Blasters, and we had quite a run during the old Lyons Brewery Depot bar gig days. Andy was the goalie till he broke his hand. Speaking of Blast. Had a great time in San Antonio this past weekend playing with Butch Morgan & The Blast, his 80's band, and caught many of his other friends around San Antonio. What a cool town and community. At Sanchos, I followed the Arturo "Sauce" Gonzalez blues band, a revered talented gang of gentleman banging out some great blues. I played a mini-set, then it was Butch and The Blast, with Go Go on drums and Robar on bass. They did their 80s band reunion show, a classic originals kick in the ass only Butch and his unique playing and writing could create. (Mudpuddlers, fear not, Butch is coming to CA to get Muddy, sooner or later, hell or high water). We also had a packed comfy cosy concert at Butch & Barbara's house in Devine TX. San Antonio has lots of nooks and crannies for live music, and Devine has Butch.   

Turn off the TV (unless you'er watching the taped TX show somehow), and come out to a show somewhere. Rooting for east coast sunshine in mid Feb. ~ Michael.
