A Letter from Dirk

Hello Everybody!

I'm writing from Denver.  Just finished my last Colorado date last night. It was the first time I ever played Colorado and it was a (mostly) a gas. Eric Westphal played Swallow Hill in Denver and Rock 'n' Soul in Boulder with me. I met lots of very cool people and even a bunch of folks who had been fans years ago but had never heard me play before. Most validating (and fun talkin' with ya'). Time, time, time. time. time...

Being here has been a breath of fresh air for me. After sweltering in the Italian, Texas and California heat over the past summer months, it's been a joy to be in this crisp, cool weather. We actually drove through snow the other day.  The mountains are spectacular. My best buddy Waldo and I drove through here years ago, but I'd forgotten the wonder of this country and mostly just remember the 3.2 beer and a hippie chick I met in Boulder I crashed with that week.  I'd move here if I could. I hope to come back and play this state at least twice a year from now on.

Special thanks to Dale Dawson and Stevie Alvarez who helped make this tour so good)

Anywho... here are some upcoming gigs. I've been wanting to play Tha Blue Door in Oklahoma City for ears and now I'm finally doing it this Friday, October 2nd... Next it's off to California where I'll be doing some house concerts and club dates. Band members will be dropping by to play at some of these shows, and for the concerts at The Palms Playhouse and The Blackwater Don Evans is flying out from New Jersey to join us, so the whole Dirk Hamilton Band will play. I really love this band and am jonzin' to play with them again. I hope all of you can make it to a gig or two.

In any case, Best Good Stuff to all a youse!

Dirk
