Gail, I hope we see you there!  Obviously this is a major gig for me, and if
we do well it will mean more visibility and success everywhere.

Greetings on the eve of my trip to the Mountain Time Zone! I start (still in
the Pacific time zone) with a house concert in Las Vegas on Saturday, and
then I'm off to Utah, Idaho, and Montana for six performances in eight days,
interspersed with awesome sightseeing and spiritual refreshment.

On June 21, I will play in two bands at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley:
Acoustic with the Sycamore Slough String Band, and Electric with Dogpatch
Junction.

July takes me east twice: Buffalo and Nelson Ledges over the July 4 weekend,
and then a longer trip later in the month that will include three festivals,
several house concerts, and "Dark Star High School," a midweek retreat at the
Full Moon Resort in New Your with the Dark Star Orchestra, Donna Jean
Godchaux-Mackay, and Betty Cantor-Jackson.  More info on that at
http://www.darkstarorchestra.net

I'm still working on a few more things for late July, possibly including gigs
in western New Jersey, Connecticut, and/or Long Island. Check
http://www.dgans.com/gigs.html  for updates.

And before we get to the complete list of gigs as it stands today, please
check out this interview I did, joined by the Rumpke Mountain Boys, right

My performance schedule is posted at http://www.dgans.com/gigs.html - new
gigs are being added all the time.

As always, I'm in the market for house concert opportunities. If you see an
open spot on my schedule in your general vicinity, let's try to make
something happen! And remember: word of mouth is a gigantic part of
musicians' promotion and publicity these days, so if you like my music,
please spread the word about my gigs and recordings.

My recordings are available at http://www.dgans.com/discography/

Great thanks to Jim Dunlop for providing me with first-rate strings for all
my guitars! http://www.jimdunlop.com/

Thanks also to Rick Turner for creating the amazing guitar I play on tour,
the Renaissance RS-6.  http://www.renaissanceguitars.com

If you want to be removed from this list, please send email to
david@trufun.com and I'll take care of it ASAP.

SYCAMORE SLOUGH STRING BAND:
Sycamore Slough String Band is an acoustic quartet focusing on the music of
the Grateful Dead, with other fine songs popping up occasionally as well.
With me are mandolinist/guitarist David Thom and bassist Roger Sideman. We
held our first rehearsals at Megasonic Studio in Oakland in January,
confident that magic would be made, and we did indeed wind up with releasable
music. "First Rehearsals" is available in FLAC, MP3, and CD on demand from
festivalink.net - http://flink.livedownloads.com/show.asp?show=7293 and in
audiophile (96/24) from HDTracks -

DAVID GANS AND ERIC RAWLINS:
I'm also hawking "Desert Wind, Rollin' River," a studio recording of
Americana type songs (including several originals) with my dear friend Eric
Rawlins. We've been singing together, mostly at private gatherings, for more
than 20 years. The recording was done in my living room by the great Stephen
Barncard, who recorded "American Beauty" and David Crosby's "If I Could Only
Remember My Name...") It's available in FLAC, MP3, and CD on demand from
Festivalink - http://flink.livedownloads.com/show.asp?show=7136

Tomorrow night (Fri 2/28/14) I am playing the second "Free-Form Fridays" gig
with Phil Savell, guitarist of The Fall Risk, and Zach Partain on bass. The
idea is to start with pure improvisation and see where it goes.  Cubby
Sedgwick opens.

Here's a sample of what we did at the first one, last month:

Showtime is 7:30pm, at the Monkey House in Berkeley.$10-20 sliding scale.
