ManGoBe bon voyage house concert in Durham

It has been four years since I accomplished my first national solo tour to the west coast and back. To give an idea of what it is like to attempt to book a national tour as a solo songwriter with a guitar, I worked for six months every day to book the tour. I sent hundreds of emails and made hundreds of phone calls and got not one single booking. So what did I do? Well I know I was born to do this even if you don't know it so I set an itinerary and showed up in towns where I stopped and pounded the pavement till I got something. Once I hit Colorado the tide turned and nearly everywhere I went afterwards friends and family who have known me my whole life began to reach out to me and set up shows for me even before I would arrive in a town. I spent two months on the road and spent only three nights in lodgings that I had to pay for. I played twenty-eight shows in eight states and made enough money on performance fees and cd sales to cover my meager expenses at home ( a good friend sublet my place of abode ). 

This time I have sent out booking emails again, and guess what, a solo guy with a guitar is not the first thing to ring someones fancy but that's ok. because I know what I have is good and that my music is going to catch on. I also know that music is community connection and love and that those three things are going to carry my hard work to another level. If you would like to be a part of this adventure and support my music getting out into the world then I will gladly accept your help.

ManGoBe plays the Brown Pelican

The Brown Pelican was my introduction to the thriving music loving community in New Bern NC. There must be something in that salt water colliding with the fresh waters of the Neuse that makes the folks there so excited and sincere about enjoying live music. On top of that the level of talent there is off the charts as my performances are often attended by world touring musicians. 

I have the great pleasure of getting to perform with a great guy and and great percussionist Patrick Edwards who grew up in New Bern and whose family tree roots extend sturdily into the hurricane tilled soil there. Every single time we play together, we improve and we have so much fun. Thanks Patrick!

ManGoBe solo at New Bern Golf and Country Club

Ahh New Bern, every time I play there I get to play for a lot of people who really really enjoy and appreciate live original music played by live original artists. There are a few places that simply stand out in their capacity for reception and hospitality and New Bern is one of them. 

I'm really glad to be returning to New Bern to play at the the NBGCC.
