Threadgill’s North is a surprisingly intimate “listening” room for live music, and bands/audiences love it. You can arrive early and eat, then check out my band “David Fore & Friends.” We will make you laugh, cry, and wonder why I named my new CD “The History of Bacon”!
“I’m Angry”, my homage to Anger and Johnny Cash. The anger part was inspired by a good friend, who gets a little tense from time to time. The Johnny Cash part is the swell “Folsom Prison” style guitar pickin’ from the stellar Walter “Woot” Talley. The tune is from my new CD “The History of Bacon”.
What a weekend, 3 gigs in 2 days! Thanks to everyone who came out to see our “unofficial” shows. I especially appreciate the kids in “Delivery Service“, the band from California, that stuck around for my set at Austin’s Pizza. They were so enthusiastic!
I lost my voice after Saturday night’s show at The Owl in Elgin, but miraculously it came back stronger than ever for our show at G&S Lounge. Thanks to Al Gill of The Footnotes for being so loud!
First up Walter ” Woot” Talley. To get clues about Woot, check out his calendar here . Woot and I have been friends/bandmates since the 1980’s! He was in the band Rabbit for years, they shuffled personnel, and became “Carla And The Cast”. That’s when I joined the band. We were immensely popular on the frat/club scene, playing every week for years! Woot’s got “Woot Talley and the Box‘, “The Jacks“, and he plays in my band “David Fore and Friends” (you’re in 2 or 3 bands, right?)
Next up, Ronn Roberts is the bass player for “The Eggmen” and our bass man in “David Fore and Friends”. He is a founding member of The Eggmen, and a serious bass guitar collector. We’ve been friends for probably 18 years or so. Ronn is fabulous on the bass, he’s very intuitive when coming up with parts for my songs. Go see him, and myself, in the Beatles Tribute Band “The EggMen“
Making April 17th plans? I know I am! Sun Radio is hosting a show at Gueros on April 17th that you’ll love. It’s Malford Milligan headlining, with David Fore & Friends opening at 6:00. Sounds like fun, right? As usual I’ll be joined by the Fab duo of Woot Talley on guitar and Ronn Roberts on bass!
Until our next gig: March 16 and 17th – Antone’s Records SXSW (alt.) show, showtime is 2:00 both days!.
So I’ve been hitting this new band /CD/ get gigs thing pretty hard for over a year now. I guess my body told me to take some time off as I had a pretty bad cold this week! Anyway, here’s some photos to keep you busy while I’m healing…
Our first appearance at the legendary Threadgill’s Old #1 was a smashing success! Great room and staff. Woot Talley, Dave Fore, and Ronn Roberts tore it up! We were joined by Amy and Julie Crow for a rocking rendition of our new song “White Wine”. Fabulous audience! Stay tuned, we will be back.

Support live music! Come to our Jan 19th show at El Mercado Backstage!
My friends showed up in numbers for my CD Release Party. Thank you all! That was my first real show as “David Fore and Friends”. So, the challenge is to get folks to come out for this second gig this Jan 19th at El Mercado Backstage. If they are kind enough to show up, I’ll most likely get more shows there, and it’s a great place to play! So come see Woot Talley, Ronn Roberts and myself Jan 19th, and help support my new band and local music! Larry Seaman and his band are also on the bill! You may know Larry as an artist, or your may remember his band in the ’80’s “The Standing Waves.” Larry’s band now features Chris Bailey, Marty Hobrastch, and Lisa Gammache.
