Hey guys! Welcome to all of you checking in from different parts of the country and different parts of the world. And welcome to all my fellow New Yorkers!!!

What can I say?

THANKS AGAIN!!!

What a day! If you were out with me in Central Park you know what I'm talking about. And if you were hangin' out with us ONLINE you were also a part of an extraordinary day... another typically amazing day for me as "That Guitar Man from Central Park". It was the first time in 24 years that we actually streamed LIVE from "The Hill". I'm really anxious to read the comments in the chat room to see if you guys had a good time. Check back tomorrow and I'll share what I learn. Also... David Hayase was out there again with his camera to capture a little of our Memorial Day Weekend hang... so I'll have photos all week! But seriously... okay, we missed Teresa because she was out doin' a road gig with Gloria Gaynor. But Frankie jumped in for a couple of songs.

Okay, okay we had a couple of rare "technical" train wrecks over the course of the day. But that didn't stop us. THE ENERGY OUT THERE SATURDAY WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. And the LIVE streaming experiment worked beyond expectations. Now, I just hafta hone the focus of the thing... really get a good feeling for merging the energy of the two entities into one. Let's do it again next Saturday. I'll start playing like always around noon and then we'lkl go LIVE to the whole world around 3:00 edt.

And yesterday I got to fill you in on that really cool event I was asked to be a part of in 2 weeks!!!

On June 6 I'm gonna be part of the world's biggest family reunion. It's not "my" family reunion. It's "our" family reunion... yours and mine. A guy named AJ Jacobs is throwing this incredible once-in-a-lifetime party and he's asked me to be a part of it. I don't think you're gonna wanna miss this thing. Click on this banner and go to this website to see what I'm talking about.

Click logo for the details

It's gonna be out at the old World's Fair Grounds in Queens! It's very cool. I was asked to accompany the great, great songwriter Paul Williams as he sings "The Rainbow Connection" and a few of his other amazing songs. Then I was asked to do a new, original song of mine which was inspired by this project. I'm also gonna be part of a lineup that includes Andy Borowitz, Daniel Radcliffe, David Blaine, George H.W. Bush (How weird is that!) and at the end of the program I'm probably gonna be on stage singing "We Are Family" with Sister Sledge. Bizarre. I'll tell you more about it this on "The Weekly Show" today and here at the website as it approaches.

But if you want tickets... the host of this party, AJ, made it possible for YOU to get a special 25% off the regular ticket price just for being on of "The People on The Hill". Seriously! They gave me a link just for you guys. Follow this link!!!

Gotta keep focusing on the beauty in this world. The ugliness will always be there. Let's all keep trying to move a little closer to the Light every day. I have work to do. The tools of my work are music and the written word. We all have different ways of feeding the beauty and starving the ugly. I hope we all get use them during our next lap around the Sun. I hope we all feel a part of One world in 2015.

Oh listen... nobody is more disappointed or heart-broken than me that there will be no video this year from "The Something'th Annual Year End Concert". But trust me, we had a blast... again. Actually we had people travel from Maryland and Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, just so they could be in town for this gig. (A couple from Europe actually told they scheduled their trip to the Big Apple around this concert!)

So very cool.

Here are the first photos from this year's gig.

A note from filmmaker Dean Love...

As you may know I am producing a documentary about "That Guitar Man from Central Park". I would like to ask all David's fans out there to write me and tell me any stories you may have about David and his playing in Central Park and how it has affected you or what it has meant to you. I've already heard some great stories, but I know there are more that I haven't heard. So if you got a story to tell about David and his music, please briefly write it out and send it to stories@thatguitarman.com. I will be contacting people from the stories submitted to interview them for possible inclusion in the film. Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone on the hill this summer.
- Dean
