PLEASE COME SEE NEIL LIVE!
March 31, 2021
I hope this first email in at least a year finds you all safe and healthy. Hopefully, we've gotten thru the worst of this and we can get back to normal. Most of the folks that I know over 55 have gotten both shots and are ready to get out a little. To that end, I'm going to give you a few of my dates in April and maybe we'll cross paths. Here are some details:
Friday April 9th Two Left Feet Dance in Ardmore Ok @ Dornick Hills CC. 6:30-9:30pm
I've been performing for this group for over 10 years now and glad to see I'm on their calendar in 2021. If you're interested in coming to this dinner/dance, email me and I'll get you in touch with the organizer of TLF. I'll return to play for TLF August 13th.
Sunday, April 18th Rob Kunkle's dance party and mixer @ Maggianos Northpark. 6-9pm
$20 will get you a small Italian buffet, dessert and dancing. It's a fun time for couples and singles! For years, this has been an event for singles. But Rob has opened the doors for friends of mine, both couples and singles. Age is mostly over 55. Be prepared to dance a lot!
Please RSVP to Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember, guys need to have a sport coat with them. Ladies always dress up for this party. I'll be playing for Rob's parties all thru 2021. Next one will be Sunday, May 16th.
Saturday, April 24th River Crest CC in Fort Worth Tx 6-9:30pm Sinatra returns! I'll be performing my almost famous Sinatra tribute once again at my favorite venue in FW!! Dress up and swing baby!
For members and their guests
To all of my friends up at Lake Texoma....be advised there might be news from Tanglewood coming soon!
May 6-7-8 This is the annual weekend for my godson and goddaughter's foundation in Corpus, Triumph Over Kid Cancer. I'll be playing tunes for the Friday night VIP party and hacking it around the course during the golf scramble on Friday. Toga party on Saturday night!
This is Scottie Scheffler's (the newest star on the PGA Tour) charity of choice as he and my godson were close friends the last few years of James' life. Check it out at https://triumphoverkidcancer.org/
We're just getting back into the swing of things and I'm hoping we'll all get together soon.
Take care and stay safe
March 6, 2021

Feb 10, '21
Well, things are still very slow on the live music front.....BUT....
I do have 2 gigs over the next several days for some country club folks.
Friday, Feb 12, '21 River Crest CC in FW 5:30-9:30pm
Though I've performed here in the past, I've not done my guitar/one
man act here...not until this Friday! Call the club for more details and
spread the word with the members!
UPDATE: Because of the deteriorating weather forecast, the Feb 14th gig @ Stonebriar has been re-scheduled to Saturday, Feb 20th.
Sunday, Feb 14th, '21 Stonebriar CC Frisco, Tx 6:30-9:30pm
It wouldn't be Valentine's without me having a gig at SCC....and a
Sinatra/love songs gig at that! This should make it 15 years running! Put on your best and come with your better half! Again, for members and their guests. The club has about 70 coming already! Call and see if they still have a table for you and yours!!
Be safe and take care!!
Update: Dec 15, 2020
Please stay safe and healthy for yourself and your loved ones during the holidays. Don't get tempted to gather in large groups! Be smart, wear your
masks, and take care. 2021 can only be better, right?
All of my gigs, except one, have been canceled through the end of the year. I hardly remembered how to play the guitar for that one it's been so long!! Hope to see you guys soon!
Update: Nov 4, 2020
I don't think anyone could have predicted this pandemic would have lasted this long and rekindled during the Fall. Just a terrible thing. I hope all you guys have stayed safe and healthy. Please get immediate help if you have symptoms!
I do have a small number of gigs coming up. These are all private Christmas
parties, but, at least, I'll sing some tunes during the holidays.
So...I'm open for business! If you know of anyone who might have a need for my services, please send them my way....Appreciate it!
Update: August 11, '20
I wish I could report a different outlook than in June and July, but that's not to be. We're all tired of this pandemic, but, please, don't do crazy things that will jeopardize your and other's health. We might have turned a corner for the better, but the virus can easily strengthen.
And, if I might add, this is not a political issue. It's a serious health issue. Stay Safe!!
Update: July 9, '20
The July 3rd gig went great. Was very cool to be back playing some tunes
for some good friends. I wish I had other musical outings to report, but none are on the horizon. Please stay safe and TAKE THIS PANDEMIC SERIOUSLY!
June 15 2020
The pandemic continues for all of us. Live music is on the back-burner at this this point for most venues, clubs, and party folks. All my gigs for June and July were canceled except for one private gig on July 3. Since late February, I've had one private gig. This is by far the longest I've gone since the late 1970's with so few jobs. I appreciate you guys asking about my future and I'll be sure to let you know as soon as I do know something. Please stay safe and take care of yourselves and your families.
I just wanted to thank the number of folks who've reached out asking about
my musical future amid the C19 pandemic. We've all had to sacrifice to try and keep ourselves safe and healthy.
All my music jobs through early June have been canceled. Hopefully, we'll be able to get back to our normal lives before then and I'll be able to let you guys know of some gigs at that point.
See you soon and be safe!!
My Greek Isles Sinatra show has come to an end when mgmt didn't renew my
contract for 2020. It was a good run but it's now time to focus on finding
another home for Ol' Blue Eyes. I'm always open for suggestions from you guys as both of the last 2 long-term Sinatra gigs have been recommended
by friends and fans. Lemme know what you think!
March 13, 2020
Sorry to say....but both of these Rob Kunkle Maggiano's dance nights have been canceled due to the coronavirus.
I've been playing my guitar/dance show regularly for Rob Kunkle's group on some Sunday evenings at Maggiano's in Northpark. I have one coming up on Sunday, March 15th. Details below:
Sunday, March 15th Maggiano's/Kunkle party Northpark 6-9pm This is a dance/dinner for mostly folks 50 and over who love to dance! $20 cash will get you a small Italian buffet and dancing. Drinks available for purchase. This has traditionally been a "mixer" for singles, but Rob has welcomed my friends who are couples also!
If interested, email Rob at email@example.com and tell him you'd like to come and how many in your party. Sport coats are required for the guys.
Mark it on the calendar: I'll be at another of Rob's dances on April 5th.
I'm still taking up a collection.....I went to Vegas for the Super Bowl Feb 2nd!
And...I have 2 out of town Sinatra gigs coming up!

Ol' Blue Eyes, dancing, and great food! Call the club for more info.
That's all for now.....Neil D.
