In Case You Missed It:
"Strange Summer Snow" Single Available for FREE Download
So I'm hitting the studios in April to track a new record. The clock is counting down. I've got it all written, sequenced and planned. You can hear the whole thing live, in order, at my upcoming Denver show. But be sure to download "Strange Summer Snow" in the meantime. It will only be available on my site until I release the CD.

David Rynhart's CD Release Show with Special Guests...
April 10th, 7pm, 389 S. Lipan St, Denver, 80223. Special sets by yours truly, Kyle J. Hauser, and get this- David Rynhart and Jeff Rieks will play the soundtrack to their self-produced movie --LIVE. That's just freaking awesome. There will be middle-eastern finger food, and the whole thing takes place in an Antique Store/Warehouse. Does it get any cooler? I don't think so.
I'm headed home soon. We only have a few weeks left of Southern Summer. The months have flown by, my new record is written, and it's back to the Rockies this April, just in time for Northern Spring. Do me a favor, and don't arrange for one of those fluke, four foot snowstorms for the first week of April, ok?
The reason I'm writing is because I'll be giving a homecoming show when I get back, at Denver's sweetest swingin' music shop, Dazzle Jazz. Presented by Strings & Wood.
Sunday (yes, Easter!) April 4th, 6:45-9:00 pm. $7 Cover. Dazzle Jazz . 930 Lincoln Street, Denver, CO. Call (303) 839-5100 to reserve a table and tickets. Not necessary, but recommended.
Please join me for a night of new songs. My upcoming performance will be a solo appearance, and a homecoming show for me, after spending the last three months in Argentina's "big apple" -- Buenos Aires. It will feature new songs from my recent travels, as well as a few old favorites. (But only a few, to be honest!) A couple of special guests will join me for a song or two throughout the evening, but for the most part, I'm very excited to present my music the way I've been playing lately--just me, my guitar, and my thoughts.
Sometime during my first few weeks in Argentina I went to a party hosted by some dear old friends--my old band mates from the Journey record. We sang and played music late into the night. We played until the sun rose, as a matter of fact. Two women sang tango songs that night with such feverish sorrow and beauty that my heart swelled. I wrote down the names of the songs I loved on napkins, and returned home to study them.
All that to say, I'll sneak a couple of those into the set as well, in addition to a handful of songs on the jazzier side- considering the setting! For the second set- I'll perform my new CD exactly, in the order I intend to record it.
Can't wait to see you all. Besos,
Lets Be Friends...

P.S. I like this story. Ok, I admit it, I can imagine myself doing this!!!
Outside England's Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, its parking fees were managed by a very pleasant attendant. The fees were 1 for cars ($1.40), 5 for buses (about $7). Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work, he just didn't show up; so the Zoo Management called the City Council and asked it to send them another parking agent.The Council did some research and replied that the parking lot was the Zoo's own responsibility. The Zoo advised the Council that the attendant was a City employee..The City Council responded that the lot attendant had never been on the City payroll.
Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain (or some such scenario), is a man who'd apparently had a ticket machine installed completely on his own; and then had simply begun to show up every day, commencing to collect and keep the parking fees,estimated at about $560 per day -- for 25 years. Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over $7 million dollars! ..... And no one even knows his name.
