Sep 5, 2009 JAVA JOE'S Coffee House Des Moines IA USA

Apr 24, 2009 Operation Home Front Fundraiser Milwaukee WI

After nine months of negotiations with another vet organization, a last minute change of direction by Operation Homefront saved this concert. Kudos to Al Boothby & Patti Lokken !

Apr 20, 2009 Peaberry's Cafe LaCrosse WI USA

Once again, hometown hero and 2 time native American Grammy winner
plays a local cafe to a packed & enthusiastic audience. Always an honor to be in his cast of excellent local musicians.

Apr 3, 2009 Peaberry's Cafe LaCrosse WI US of A
Mar 20, 2009 CARIBOU COFFEE RED WING / Zip 55066 MN
Feb 13, 2009 Luther College Student Union Decorah IA USA
Feb 13, 2009 MAGPIE Coffeehouse Decorah 52101 IA

  A classic narrow 19th century storefront venue. Musicians are forced to perform next to the front door so that all the traffic walks in front of the live music. Nothing makes a guitarist feel more like a piece of furniture than lack of a decent stage position. Great place for beginners to ply their art. Great food and staff. Not my cup of tea.

Feb 7, 2009 The TREMPEALEAU Hotel Trempealeau 54661 WI
Nov 7, 2008 The Wine Cafe Mankato MN

This is definitely a BAND venue.
Soloists are stuck next to the "L" shaped pizza oven where the heat throws your acoustic guitars out of tune. This is place for rowdier beer
guzzling and wine sipping and needs the kind of tunes to support that
clientele. Not a good fit for yours truly.

Oct 4, 2008 Java Joe's Downtown Des Moines IA

This is the longest surviving live music venue in my old home town of Des Moines, Iowa and the proprietors are simply amazing. They bought an adjacent part of the same building and turned into a true performing concert hall that doubles as a "Farmer's Market" area in season.
Look for an afternoon and evening gig there when the growing season for garden fresh produce is flowing on a Friday this year. They
actually charge cover in the evening. At last, some respect in the old home town !

Oct 3, 2008 CAFE DIEM Ankeny IA
Oct 2, 2008 Cafe Diem AMES IA

Nice off campus venue. Good sound characteristics. The bad news is that they don't actively promote their live music much,hence a tiny turn out and because of the long commute to Ames from LaCrosse, Wisconsin, this is a cafe that's seen the last of yours truly.

Sep 26, 2008 Peaberry's LaCrosse WI
