From David Gans

Greetings from dank, drippy Oakland CA!

It's been a quiet couple of months musically, but I have been busy! The Sirius Satellite Radio gig is great fun ( If you'd like to check it out, can get a free three-day online trial at - and that's good for all channels, of course!), and I have also been working on several musical projects that (if all goes well) will yield happy results in the year to come.

My Bay Area dance card is filling up all of a sudden, and touring plans for the year are just starting to take shape. I'll post more festival gigs soon, and if all goes well there will be some interesting collaborations as well. And who knows? Maybe even a club tour - it's been a while!

As always, the gig info is kept current at

I also post about my performances, along with news of my various creative endeavors and other stuff you might find worthwhile, on my blog Cloud Surfing (formerly known as the logblog).

I hope to see you at one or more of these events. Your help is greatly appreciated - tell your friends about these shows, print out the posters and pass 'em around. Word of mouth is everything in this bizniz!
