It is always a drag that my mom lives 450 miles north of here AND that her birthday is in the dead of winter, so we don't get to celebrate it with her in person. But we've got the next best thing: I hope you'll "come on over to my house" to help me celebrate my mom's milestone birthday with a special vidcast Monday Feb. 25th at 9pm EST. We'll toast the occasion for sure and I'll let mom pick most of the songs for the show, but I'll also share some new things as well. And we're going to try something new, special for the occasion - plan to have your mobile phone and its voice recorder ready to help us crowdsource a very special gift for mom!

Please go to - and use the social media and email tools to help spread the word to your friends. It would be a delight to share some "face" time with you, and raise a toast or two together. I'd love for you to join me and to help get my music out to more people too.

What is a VIDCAST? A live performance broadcast over the internet via video! You can watch it as it happens from wherever it happens. Sometimes we'll fairly spontaneously vidcast live from a show on the road, or use Facebook's Live feature. At least a few times a year, we'll do a regular scheduled performance from my home to yours, via my Concert Window website. You can buy a ticket in advance for as little as $1, tip as frequently as you like, interact with other guests and make requests via the Chat Room, all from the comfort of your own home, snack bar and beverage cabinet.

It allows me the opportunity to help make the mortgage while being home with my family, but I also use the opportunity to share behind the scenes stuff. I usually mix in a couple chestnuts from out of my early catalog, sometimes a fun cover of a traditional tune, or a standard from the Great American Songbook, or who the heck knows. And of course, a few longtime favorites too. It's a bit different than a regular concert with the audience in the room - think of it as an interactive TV broadcast.

You can try it out for the first few minutes for free - then pay $1 or whatever it's worth to you - your contributions help keep the roof over my family. Huge thanks for your generosity - that is my salary for the week (and it keeps the tour bus off the road - not carbon neutral, but a whole lot better than driving a few thousand miles). It's a lot of fun, and a really special experience. I've offered some tips to optimize your viewing experience down below.

Would you like to get a single text reminder on the day of my vidcast? Email us your name and text number, and we'll only use it for that one reminder!


Come by a little early to make sure you are set and ready:

  • Make sure your Adobe Flash Player is up to date
  • Test your speed at (just don't buy anything or scan your computer - you can simply use the speed test and get useful info about your connection). Comcast users can use
  • iPad/iPhone users - you should get a specially tailored stream as long as you use Safari for your browser. Since some of you had trouble with the last vidcast, you might want to check out a few moments of another Concert Window show a day before so there is plenty of opportunity to report bugs/issues to them and not miss the show!

Our ConcertWindow page also has 1-song teasers from some previous vidcasts. If you missed hearing Dang Varmints, or Andrew and guitarist/composer Michael DeLalla playing together live in the attic, come over anytime for a look and listen. ConcertWindow keeps 1/3 of the proceeds and the rest goes to the artist. The vidcasts are recorded – it's offered in real time only.
