Booking Bonanza!

Just when I thought I could kick back and enjoy some quiet beach time, my summer season has kicked into full gear and I have quite a few gigs coming up! With only 16 days to go in July, I have 10 gigs to fit in before my August 2 performance at The Sand Box on Anna Maria Island. If you’re in the Sarasota area this month, check my tour dates calendar and stop by to see me! I’m playing some of my favorite venues in St. Armands, Siesta Key, Bradenton, Osprey and Sarasota, ranging from a Parrot Head party to some awesome beachy bars. I’m really psyched about joining up with some other trop rock musicians, and also trying out a few new venues. now-playing-tropical-isle.jpg

I’m also getting close to announcing a major festival booking that I can’t wait to announce! I can’t say anything now, but watch Facebook for the announcement. 

In the meantime, stop by and see me at an upcoming event. And if you haven’t reserved your spot for the Sand Box performance on Aug. 2 on Anna Maria Island, you can register on my tour dates page. This is one of the best shows of the year that you won’t want to miss!

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.

Schooner played for the Parrot Heads of Central Florida PHlocking — one of his favorite events!

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!

Schooner booking summer house parties

photo-6Parrot Head Phriends, Schooner still has some summer dates available for house parties in Florida, southern Georgia, between Florida and eastern Pennsylvania in late July, and the Carolina Coast in early August.

If you’re looking for a trop rocker who can sing your favorites along with clever tunes of his own that are sure to connect with your guests, such as In Arrears Drinking Beer, Pier Pressure and Mid-Life Vices, give Schooner a call for open dates. 

Voted Beachfront Radio’s 2012 Bad Boy of Trop Rock, Schooner has played top trop rock venues like Tropical Isle on Bourbon Street in New Orleans; the Sand Box, voted #1 house party venue by Beachfront Radio; Meeting of the Minds; and for Parrot Heads across the country!
