Wednesday-Bear & Robert… Thursday-Black Water Swamp Band!

This week, I’m playing TWO shows during the week!

Wednesday night, I’ll be playing with Cindy Bear as Bear & Robert at the Mudville Music Room (3105 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville) as part of the North Florida Folk Network’s Monthly Local Artist Showcase (also featuring the New Moon Ramblers and The Conners Project) Show starts at 7:30, with a $5 cover charge (goes to the artists!)

Thursday, Black Water Swamp Band rolls into Dee’s Music Bar (2141 Loch Rane Blvd., Orange Park, FL) from 6-10 pm… yes, it’s a somewhat early gig! Come enjoy a great bike night, some great blues and classic rock, and even a video shoot! So come on down and boogie with the band!

Hope to see your smiling faces this week!

The End Of An Era…

It’s with a bittersweet note that I announce that Franc Robert & the Boxcar Tourists have reached the end of the line, and it’s time to hop off the train… So let’s send this off in style!!! Our last 2 shows will be Friday Aug. 12th at the Fisherman’s Shack (14519 Old Dixie Hwy., Hudson, FL) and Friday Aug. 19th at San Ann Liquors (aka Ralph’s Place), both at their usual times… I hereby invite all friends of the band, musicians who have been a part of this crazy ride, and anyone else interested to please come out and celebrate what this band has managed to do in the course of 6 years, hundreds of gigs, and cases of PBR… hope to see you there!!!
