Greetings Everyone! Now that the 3rd CD is finished and available on-line, locally,with I-tunes AND through "BEST BUY" audio stores, it's time to sharpen my focus on other musical matters. The new 7 minute DVD showcasing the range and styles of my original songwriting, vocal and multi-instrumental chops is  UP AND RUNNING! Thank you to "Simple Pleasures Records" for your time, effort and support. The process of having it embedded into the site requires only ONE bit of advice....... PLEASE MAKE SURE that you allow the allotted time necessary to download the full file. The video image/sound is actually very good and will load reasonably quick for most internet connections. I hope you enjoy the DVD..... It gives all prospective venue hosts an idea of the diversity and quality I strive to bring to my shows!! It's important for all hosts to realize that my repertoire allows me to do an entire show of purely instrumentals, ("Whispered Moments and Pineapple Salsa Serenade ") style, to singer-songwriter favorites including John Mayer, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton and John Hiatt to name a few. Mix in wailin' blues on the "silver bullet" National Style O slide guitar with harmonica cuttin' through for good measure, and you have one of the most eclectic musical combinations on the Central Coast!From strolling solo through the audience, to fronting two  different duos....The Blue Flamingos with Mr. Rick Hansen  on percussion and harmony vocals and also The Blue Moon Gypsies...bringing in Ms. Lauren Minter on gorgeous lead and harmony vocals with yours truly. For the larger venues, a high energy, toe-tappin Blues Trio or 4 piece band (Brian Black and the BluesCruisers)...brings it all together for an up tempo, instrumentally diverse, rare blend of music that is sure to please even the most demanding  listeners!                                                                                                                   If you are interested in being added to the mailing list for weekly updates on upcoming concerts/events, go to my contact page and send e-mail address information to: brianb@brianblackmusic.com Fondly, Brian Black
