Playing at Coffee House

I’ve been invited to return to Buchanan Free Methodist Church’s coffee house to do a set from my new CDs. I hope you can come.

I’m taking requests for any of the songs I’ve written, so please leave your requests in the comments box.

Yee Hah at Markham Rodeo

The whole family drove up to Markham to attend the rodeo, and we had a lot of fun. I didn’t see any animals getting abused, though.

It’s weird, because I got three emails before the show, saying, “HOW COULD YOU!!!!???” Some individuals thought I was so insensitive to be playing at the rodeo because animals were being abused there, and it was billed as entertainment!

I kept my eye open but didn’t notice any abuse. I did see some horses who didn’t want to jump over the knee-high obstacles. And I’m not so sure the ponies were into all those little kids riding on their backs. Maybe that’s what they were talking about.

Anyway, the shows were fun. A myspace fan, named Wynne, came to the second show I did. It was great to meet her, and introduce her to my family. Thanks for coming Wynne!

Next show is at the Freeway. I  hope lots of people come to that one.

Cobourg Was Great

12 GirlfriendsI had a fantastic time in Cobourg last night. Joanne and I drove together to the small city, about two and a half hours from here. We loved it. The architecture, the history, the quaintness of the downtown. What a nice place. Maybe we’ll move there someday! happy

I played in a cute little coffee shop, called “Meet You at 66 King Street.” The crowd there was so fun and friendly, and it was a pleasure to play for them. Thanks to all the wonderful people I met, who asked me to come, and who helped support my music by buying a CD. It really meant a lot, and it was a great time. (Thanks to mom and dad, and sis and bro-in-law for coming to listen too!)

The CDs were ready just in time— the new album I recorded last week is called “12 Girlfriends,” and it’s full of old love songs from the past and present. I sold a boat load of them, so I guess things went well. I was pretty pumped about that.

I am thinking of putting together a parallel project, full of another twelve songs recorded on just the piano— but this time songs of faith. I’m going to wait a bit to see how this project sells first.

If you want a CD, I’d love to get one to you. If you see me in person, they’re $10.00. If I have to mail it to you, they’re $12.00. You can send me money via PayPal or you can wait a bit because I’m about to set up a credit card section on this site for buying my CD. Stay tuned!

Thanks again to everyone behind my music. Your support means a lot to me.

Markham Fair

I played a gig at the Home Show, held at the Markham Fair this afternoon. Tom Bigas, my pal from the ‘Fonic Factory,’ asked me yesterday if I wanted to come and perform. He said I might sell some CDs, and it was a fun experience to boot.

I took the family along, and we made it a bit of an outing. You know, sample fudge, and get harrassed by insurance agents desperate for new clients. Lots of fun! happy

Acutally it was. For my set I played Elton John’s, Your Song, Eagle’s Desparado, Walking in Memphis, I Could Not Ask For More, and a bunch of originals. I sold ten CDs, all to the same guy, someone named Ron McKeown who is planning the Markham Rodeo in April.

Tonight I’m playing with Scott Orr, for his CD release party at the Frwy Cafe in downtown Hamilton.

On a completely different note, I’ve got a MySpace account set up now, at http://www.myspace.com/jasondsilver.

Playing in Cobourg

Jason Silver in ConcertI’ve been asked to play at a coffee house in Cobourg, Ontario— I’m looking forward to getting away with Joanne, enjoying a little trip, and maybe selling a couple of CDs.

How did this come about? It was the weirdest thing— I received an email from a woman who attended my church last year. She is dating someone who apparently is a ‘HUGE fan’ of my music! (It’s kinda cool to think I have fans… wow, that makes me feel important!).

She wanted to suprise her boyfriend by taking him to hear me sing somewhere— and as it turned out, I’m going there— to play at something called the SoulHouse Cafe.

If you’re able to come to hear me play, that would be terrific. I’m on Monday, March 13th, 7 p.m., at 66 King Street E., Cobourg. Hope to see you there!
