Hey Friend,

Happy March! Even though I know we can count on at LEAST one big snowstorm before winter’s gone for good, the forecast is starting to look pretty spring-ish here in Cleveland, with highs well above freezing for as far out as my phone’s forecast will show me.

The comparatively-balmy weather came in handy this past weekend, as March 1 was the day “MYTBYA Video Shoot” was on my calendar. I’ll give you 3 guesses as to what MYTBYA stands for…

If you guessed “Master Yodeling Thunder’s Blazing Yak Academy,” then you’ve landed on a fantastic name for a Kung Fu school, but unfortunately are slightly off-target regarding this past Sunday’s activities. Instead, a group of 20 or so stalwart folks gathered on Edgewater Beach on Cleveland’s Lake Erie shore to film a music video for my new single that’s slated to be released later this month, “More Than You Believe You Are”.

I’m super excited about this song and this video; all the folks involved absolutely knocked it out of the park; particular shout-outs to our lead actor Jaered Andrews, our videographer Arron Bound, and our production coordinator (and my partner) Amanda Nyx. We have 1 more day of shooting scheduled, but that will be indoors, non-weather-dependent, and won’t require a small army of volunteers to pull off!

This coming weekend will find me & and Amanda performing & exhibiting at another of Wizard World’s Comic Cons, but this time right in our own backyard!

Wizard World Cleveland will be happening right at the Convention Center in downtown CLE – follow this link to grab your tickets, and use the promo code FREEPHOTOCLE to snag a signed celebrity photo from the vast Wizard World collection!

The end of this month will see my yearly pilgrimage to Cape May, New Jersey, for the Singer-Songwriter Cape May conference. I’ll be traveling this year with my good friends Kevin Conaway & Sean Benjamin, and doing two showcase performances while I’m there! I look forward to this event every March; I can’t wait to see all the Garden State friends I’ve made over the years, and all the other singer-songwriters that travel from across the country to share their stories, songs, and insights.

Michael McFarland and the Mess MakersOver the past 6 months I’ve been thrilled to be supplementing my solo shows with full-band performances as Michael McFarland & the Mess Makers – playing with a full band is just so. much. fun., and the gentlemen I get to share the stage with are both a blast to be around and a pleasure to collaborate with. We’ll be playing our next show on April Fool’s Day (no joke) at The Grog Shop, one of my favorite venues. We’ll be sharing the bill with our friends Meg & the Magnetosphere, Davey Squires, and Don Beck. Of course, you can expect there to be absolutely no shenanigans, tomfoolery, hooliganism, or other such malarkey. We are SERIOUS musicians, after all…

Here’s everywhere you can find me playing over the next month. Hope to see you at one of the shows!

As always, there’s a chance I might end up picking up a few more shows over the coming weeks, so be sure to like my various social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and keep an eye on the Tour Dates page to make sure you don’t miss anything.

Once again, thank you for taking this journey with me. I can’t wait to see what happens during this new decade!
