Hey Man

SATURDAY NIGHT, DECEMBER 5 – 7:30
CALL THE BOX OFFICE: (212) 501-3330
This year we’re gonna make “The Something’th Annual Year End Concert” feel a whole lot like our afternoons at “The Hill” in Central Park. We’re not gonna do the whole “band” thing this year. I’m gonna share some background stuff about some of your favorite songs, and I’ll share the stage with Teresa Reynolds and George Wurzbach. I actually got together with George and Teresa this week to kick around a few ideas and I can tell you… it’s gonna be a really special night. I can feel it already.
.

Now, for a place with 500 seats this venue is a really beautiful, comfortable, great-sounding, intimate music hall. But I just checked with the box office and the tickets are really moving this week all of the sudden. So if you’re putting it off, or you’re sitting on the fence… just call a friend or two and plan to make a night of it. It’s a lot of fun. We laugh as much as we sing at these things every year.

THE BOX OFFICE IS OPEN!

MERKIN CONCERT HALL

Or you can grab tickets right now. We actually lowered the price of the best seats in the orchestra!!! And the balcony is $5 less that them!!! So call a few friends and make a night of it. Seriously… call them and grab the best seats!!! We’ve only got 4 weeks lead time on this show. And this year we’re gonna do a show that will feel a lot like “The Hill” in Central Park. I’m hoping that you guys show up and are really in the mood to sing and laugh 2015 out the door! I wanna keep it simple. I wanna keep that… y’know… “It’s Just Us” feeling. I want you guys to be ready to sing, a LOT, and LOUD. I want you guys to be ready to dance in the aisles. And I would like to do it in a room PACKED with sweet people having fun. So… not only will we do a more acoustic show with a few special guests joining me on stage, I really REALLY need you guys to bring a few friends to fill that venue!!!

Now, I’ve been going through some significant changes in my Life… and working on some pretty wonderful projects. I moved to a new apartment in a new neighborhood in Manhattan. I just wrote a new dramatic one-act play, I’m sitting on top of another that is starting to generate real interest… and I’m still pushing the new musical “Possibility Junkie”. I think we’ve really got something wonderful on our hands. Here’s a little taste.

OH!!! At the beginning of the summer I was lucky enough to be part of the very first Global Family Reunion. At that gig, I shared a stage with legendary songwriter Paul Williams, and partied on the main stage with Sister Sledge, and then did a set of my own. It was very, very cool.

Here’s a moment from that gig.

Listen, most of you live in or around New York City but I know a lot of you are new around here. And a lot of you are checking in from different parts of the country and different parts of the world. A lot of you guys showed up after the newest video from the December concert hitYouTube and Twitter. Well, I update this page almost everyday. Still, you can hit the ARCHIVE here at the site. And all around the internet you can find stuff if you Google “David Ippolito” or “That Guitar Man” or…

OR on YouTube: thatguitarman

OR on Twitter: @thatguitarman

There’s always a lot cool stuff goin’ on someplace. Keep checking back.

Gotta keep focusing on the beauty in this world. The ugliness will always be there. Let’s all keep trying to move a little closer to the Light every day. I have work to do. The tools of my work are music and the written word. We all have different ways of feeding the beauty and starving the ugly. I hope we all get use them during our next lap around the Sun. I hope we all feel a part of One world in 2015.

.

Oh listen… nobody is more disappointed or heart-broken than me that there will be no video this year from “The Something’th Annual Year End Concert”. But trust me, we had a blast… again. Actually we had people travel from Maryland and Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, just so they could be in town for this gig. (A couple from Europe actually told they scheduled their trip to the Big Apple around this concert!)

So very cool.

Here are the first photos from this year’s gig.
