Who likes wine? Join me at the Rosa Fiorelli Vineyard May 10!

This year for Mother’s Day, get a head start in celebrating by bringing your mom, wife, or whoever to the Wine and Dine in the Vines at the Rosa Fiorelli Winery and Vineyard. I’m playing a special dinner there on the night before Mother’s Day from 5-8 pm, May 10. It’s not a Mother’s Day event, so feel free to come if you just like wine and trop rock! This place is really beautiful, and there’s nothing like kicking back under the stars with great wine and great music in the middle of a vineyard.

The event features a full dinner, from passed appetizers and salad to baked tilapia and chicken. And, of course, wine! 19-300x224

It’s only 15 minutes outside of Sarasota, and the place is beautiful! My friends can get a 10% discount, so make sure you call the winery and say you’re coming to see me to receive the discount. If you book online, you’ll be charged the normal price.

Rosa Fiorelli Winery and Vineyard, Wine and Dine in the Vines,  4250 County Rd. 675 E., Bradenton, FL-recervations can be made on the link, or call 941-322-0976 for 10% discount as a friend of mine

Busy week of gigs coming up. Can’t wait!

If you’ve been wanting to get out to one of my trop rock gigs, the next week is your chance! This Thursday I’m playing for the Sarasota Bay Parrot Heads at Sun-n-Fun from 6-9. This is my home Parrot Head Club and a great bunch of people, so it’s always one of my favorite gigs.

Then this weekend I’m playing at Spanish Point on Saturday (6:30-9:30) and Cha Cha Coconuts in St. Armands Circle on Sunday afternoon (1-5). If you’ve never been to Spanish Point, this is the ultimate tiki bar on the water, and one of the best places to watch the sunset in Sarasota aside from the beach.

Then I’m playing at Cha Cha’s again on Wednesday from 7-11. If you come, order the fish tacos or the pulled pork sandwich — excellent!

Check my Tour Dates page for other upcoming gigs. And if you would like to book a trop rock house party, give me a call. Hope to see you soon!

Don’t miss the Parrot Head meeting this Thursday!

So I got my dates mixed up — the Sarasota Bay Parrot Head Club elections are not this Thursday. But I am definitely playing, so I hope you’ll come out and spend time with your favorite PHriends and enjoy some good tunes. I can’t wait to hear all your stories about the Buffett concert!

What an amazing weekend! Loved playing in Orlando, Sand Box, St. Armands Circle and Nokomis!

Wow, what a weekend! I kicked off the weekend early at the Bayside Grille in Nokomis, one of my favorite mom and pop bar and grills on the Gulf Coast, with great food and great prices. Kim and Joe are amazing — you walk in and they make you feel welcomed right away.

Friday I played for the Parrot Heads of Central Florida‘s monthly PHlocking, which is one of the best Parrot Head clubs I’ve known. This is such a great group of people. Pam Hausle, el president, has such a passion for raising funds for charities that it’s inspiring to me. I always love traveling up to Orlando to play for these folks.

The next day I was up early (noon, which is early for a trop rocker) and headed up to Anna Maria Island for a gig at the Sand Box with Kid Conch (Rick Schettino) and Lightning Jack. The Sand Box was named the #1 house party venue by Beachfront Radio last year, and is one of my favorite places to play. Paul and Diana are such gracious hosts, and I’ve always had an amazing time playing there. Mark your calendar — I’m playing my annual concert at the Sand Box on August 2, so I hope you’ll come and join me!

Schooner has several dates coming up at Cha Cha Coconuts in St. Armands Circle!

Then I finished up the weekend playing Cha Cha Coconuts in St. Armands Circle on Lido Key just off the coast of Sarasota. All in all, the weekend definitely didn’t suck. The fact that it was 80 degrees and sunny didn’t hurt. Man, I love living in Florida!

I’m booking the spring and summer up and have  some great gigs coming up, so I hope you’ll come out and see me! Visit my Tour Dates page for a complete list of upcoming gigs. See you soon!
