MICHAEL SMITH – April 2017 concerts

MICHAEL SMITH – April 2017 concerts A Note from Michael Smith This April I'm in St Louis and Grand Rapids, places that sound to me sometimes as if I was on a vaudeville tour, but with much pleasanter hotel rooms. In St. Louis I love the restaurant that's right next door to the gig, exotic food on a peaceful street. In Grand Rapids I play the Wealthy Theater, two words you don't usually see together. Both of these places are what you call listening rooms, the descendants of coffeehouses. I couldn't believe it the first time I played a coffeehouse: people actually listened.  I saw there the beginning of my own listening too, because it had never been that quiet before when I played. It was like: oh Michael you better come up with something. I love working both these rooms, great audiences, and I'm sure glad that it's what I get to do this April instead of the gigs some politicians are booked for this month. And "Rain" might be my favorite Beatle song. Button up your overcoat. OK bye. ST. LOUIS AREA Sat April 15 at 8:00 PM The Focal Point 2720 Sutton Blvd Maplewood, MO 63143-3036 http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2882043 FACEBOOK:

Michael P. Smith March ENews California Concerts

March 03, 2017  |   General   |     |   0 Comment

Michael P. Smith March ENews California Concerts A Note From Michael One of the great things about this occupation is that now and again I get to spend a weekend in California, and this month I have a kind of quick and very active visit happening...I'm getting to see my pal Jimmy Duke and friends at Dark Thirty in Lakeside, where I've been so many times that it's like a home away from home; I settle in immediately. A house concert in San Diego, which will be a new experience,and a concert series in Pasadena, where the old Ice House lives forever in fond memory. I'm proud and a little disbelieving of my memory to write that George Carlin came to see me work at the Ice House once years ago. The part I can't believe is that me and George C went for a walk and he talked about how he loved a song of mine that Spanky And Our Gang did...and I just casually accepted the whole thing as if it was my due.  Yeah I was so much older then...bless you, George, you'd be going crazy now. OK, bye. CALIFORNIA CONCERTS Fri. Mar 10, ...
