To all who share a thirst for life, love, music and everything in between, This year has been quite a whirlwind; January's Hugh's Room 100th show celebration lead to the new recordings which lead to a ton of gigs and culminated in two incredible east coast tours. I plan on carrying the momentum into 2010 with musical expeditions to Memphis, Nashville, a return to Newfoundland (my new favorite place in Canada), and if all goes according to plan, a cross country tour heading west this summer! Before I say another word, let me wish you all a wonderful and stress free holiday season... its upon us, no sense in denying it! As we walk past endless jingles, tinsel and cheerful decor, I hope we all take the time to connect with loved ones, share a bevy or two, deck the halls, light the candles, dance a jig, and appreciate the break in the monotony! In the meantime, I'd like to invite you out to one final full band show! Haven't played in hometown Tarana in some months, so this Thursday I'm "getting the band back together" and hosting a couple of great maritime artists at C'est What! here are the details: DECEMBER 10th, 2009 Location: C'est What Street: 67 Front Street East City/Town: Toronto, On $6 9:30pm start time, I'm headlining at around 10:30 W/ Mary Stewart http://www.marystewartmusic.com/ David Macmichael (The Danger Bees) Http://www.thedangerbees.comAlso On Thursday, December 10th, Second Cup at Empress Walk will host the first ever Sip for a Cause. 100% proceeds from the day's beverage sales will be donated to Camp Oochigeas, a camp for children with cancer. I'm playing a solo set at 1pm, come say hello and have a cup of joe! As we speak, I'm working on the video blogs to commemorate the recently completed "East Side Ride 09" tour w/ the talented Jadea Kelly, I'm going to release them in early January, when the holiday dust settles. In the meantime, check out this one from the "East Bound and Up" Series: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-OKxNdD9SI It'll give you an idea of what to expect! Many thanks to all who joined my facebook "fan page," ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-Borins/20447603918 ) I say this with a nod and a wink, because I've yet to find a way to distinguish between friend and fan. I hope I never have to! You can be sure I'll be in touch soon, but please drop me a line and let me know how you've been spending your time! Always looking for new music to hear and discover, so send me recommendations! Much Love, see you on Thursday or as soon as possible! db
Dave Borins, is quite possibly one of Toronto’s most energetic acoustic soul players and performers. This may attribute to the following successes: a sold out show at the prestigious Hugh's Room, an independently booked cross Canada tour, sold out shows in New York city, and house concert bookings throughout Southern Ontario. Borins released his debut independent album "Songs of Sense and Colour" in 2007 and by 2008 his music and live performances had earned him two nominations at the Toronto Independent Music Awards and a showcase spot at North By Northeast. In 2009 he hit the road for three tours behind the newly completed EP "The Lucky Ones!"
