Severed Turkey (New "Back in The Dave" Episode)

Thanksgiving is that one holiday when the family is focused on family, togetherness, and love of family. But, when a family splits in two, Thanksgiving looks and feels different. I did notice those differences, but the music stood out the most.

Take it Higher

"Take it Higher" is my next song release, so let's do a sneak peek listen to it!

What excites me about this song is, it's a dance jam! My bass is pumping. The drums are slamming, phat keyboards, and "BIG" orchestrated strings. Oh! And I do a bit of singing on this track too!

Come, sit in the studio with me and check it out before I release it to the rest of the world! I'd love your feedback.

Drinking Tea Consciously

Plants, herbs, spices are all the rave. They're no longer the chopped-up bits we add to our soups, stews, and salads to make them pop with flavor!

​Plants are coming full circle and are once again being used to heal. Have you heard of a tincture? It's one of the processes an herbalist uses to extract the medicinal properties out of a plant. Another way of getting the health properties out of plants without being an herbalist is through teas.

​Herbalist Amanda Furbee enlightens us on why we need to drink tea consciously! And why tea should be a lifestyle.

Topics of discussion

How can we incorporate teas into our lifestyle?
What’s herbalism (food or medicine)
Why should we be drinking tea consciously
The plant body connection (the science)
Tea and Adrenals
Herbalism is not a bandaid medicine
Best practices to make teas that heal/and help

10/21/2021
Hello!

How is everyone!

Heads up, I'm going live with herbalist Amanda Furbee from the Herb Shoppe live at 7pm eastern!

It's all about teas, and herbs!

10/21/2021

This was funny as hell! I tried going live from my car, and the connection was so bad! I'm stuttering, it's like a remix, watch it and get a fun chuckle.

TBT- One of my favorite pictures.

This is a long story but I'll keep it short!

Winter 1986, Tracy and I decided to take some downtime from music, we went to the Poconos resort mountains. We'd been married for a year and three months.

When we went to dinner. The hotel was hosting a talent show. We were sharing a dining table with other guests, and exchanging our life, and history with each other. We told them we were in the music industry.

Excited! Everyone at the table said, "YOU GUYS SHOULD DO THE TALENT SHOW!!"

We were like, "no, we're professionals," it's not fair.

Weeeeeeell they told the host of the talent show, who proceeded to pull us up on stage while Tracy and I were saying "NO!"

We looked at each other and said, well, ok. Let's do what we do!

We performed a duet I wrote for us called, "Just for you and me."

Yep, you can guess the rest.

First place, first prize...duh!

They were warned, RIGHT?

Have you ever had an experience in your life when you just knew something messed up was going to happen? In 1985 I had that feeling. What I didn't know was, it was going to happen while I was building my new storefront recording and rehearsal studio! I was so pi**ed!

Rosetta-retiring my first bass 😔

When I made a decision to become a bass player in the spring of 1976. I had one big problem, actually two. The first was, I didn’t have a bass guitar! The second was. My mom and dad did not want to buy me a bass because I had already gone through drums and piano.

I decided to take my case to the supreme court of Knight’s and the central bank. This was the court of Nana and the bank of Big Daddy (FDIC). My father's parents.

The first thing Nana did was tell my parents that I asked her to buy me the guitar. So now I had to convince the supreme court, the bank, and the local court (my parents) that I really wanted to play the bass guitar!

To do that, I played my sister's ole acoustic guitar, which was missing all strings except the four bass strings.

I didn’t hear back from the court or the bank for an entire year. I kept playing those four strings on that acoustic guitar while keeping the pressure on the supreme court on how badly I wanted a bass.

On trips to the mall, I'd bring Nana into Matthew’s music store and show her what a bass guitar was. I would plug it into an amp and make a bunch of noise!

Finally, on my birthday in 1977, they bought me my first bass guitar, a Sango, a copy of a Gibson SG bass guitar, but I didn’t care! It was a bass, and I was now in bass heaven.

I outgrew that bass in 1979 and needed a new professional guitar. I didn’t bother asking my parents or grandparents for it. Instead, I pulled together what little money I had, went to Jamaica ave, and purchased a Cameo bass for $75. It was a copy of the world-famous Fender Precision bass heard on countless Motown records during the late 50s and 60s.

I played the hell out of that guitar, but I hated it!

Along comes 1981, I’m 19yrs old, and I have been playing for four years with fake amateur guitars.

This time, I go straight to Nana and say, Nana, I’m almost a professional bass player. I need a better bass guitar! I need a professional bass guitar, can you please buy me a G&L 2000?

I had seen Louis Johnson of the Brother’s Johnson, my bass playing God playing a red G&L 2000 on Soul Train. I knew that was the bass for me, well, not really, but Louis was playing it, so I had to have it!

Once again, I’m in drive Nana crazy mode, pleading my case as to why I had to have this bass guitar. Please Nana, please, please Nana, Nana, Nana, pleeeeeese!

Christmas Day 1981 arrives. I’m wishing, hoping, and praying that Nana got me my dream bass. My sister and I cross the street to Nana’s house. She opens the garage door, and we go upstairs.

We say Merry Christmas! As I am greeting them. My eyes are looking to see if they got the guitar when I notice the back end of a guitar case between the sofa and the coffee table.

Of course, I knew it was my bass! The only question unanswered was. If it's my dream bass. A G&L 2000, in fire engine red.

Nana says, David, this is yours. Pointing at the guitar case. I quickly walk over to it, lean over, give Nana a kiss, and say, thank you so much, Nana!

Pick up the case, lay it flat on the floor, unlock the latches, pop open the top, and it’s a G&L 2000 in fire engine red! I got it!

It’s hard for me to imagine that was 40yrs ago, and I have to retire the G&L. I’ve since given it a name. I call it Rosetta. Nana’s nickname. Her brother William (my great uncle) called her Rosetta. The name is fitting because the bass is red like a rose, and she purchased it for me.

Rosetta is passing the torch to my new guitar. A genuine Fender Precision! I will most likely name it Simone, after my mom. She has always been such a bright light.

Go to Bed!

Date: Thursday, October 7th
Time: 7PM

Live, right here on Facebook!

Why is it so hard for us to simply go to bed and get eight hours of sleep? Our generation grew up when television was just getting started, and if your family was like mine. Going to bed with the television on was a way of life.

To help us better understand how crucial sleep is! I’ve asked health coach Christina Wakefield to be my special guest on this live stream. Christina works at Parsely Health, a membership-based, holistic health, functional medicine healthcare provider. Christina is going to take us through just how serious sleep is.

TBT- This is one of my favorite pictures. 1975, Mrs. Hasher's class! Our class did a science fair. The director of the school gave us the challenge to pop the lens out of the frog's eye.

He said if you can do that, you could use it as a magnifying glass on a newspaper. I really wanted to see that, so I worked at that frog's eye until I popped out the lens!

I didn't care about the challenge, I just wanted to see how it work!
