Back to Roots:
Well, I want to thank everyone who has supported the band. I've had a great time and I've learned a lot with the band but I have decided to go back to doing solo/acoustic (and the occasional duo with Andy, of course). This decision hasn't been reached due to any strife in the band, we've gotten along swimmingly actually, but only because I feel like the time of being the leader of my own band has past.

If you know of any place where my acoustic act might be good, please let me know! A reference is always appreciated and even better if you can put in a good word ahead of time for me. All sorts of venues work for me. I like private parties where I can kind of play as background music or at a coffee shop or restaurant.

I will continue to post events as they come up and invite people to the public events, I'd still LOVE to see y'all come out to listen and support me when able.

Google +1 added!:
I actually added it a while back but didn't think to post about it until now. At the bottom left of pretty much every page, you'll see this icon:

Each page is independent so it you like my pages go to ALL of them and click that icon! It's Google's version of Facebook's "Like" (sort of).

Mobile phone website:

Michael Whit is proud to announce... (insert drum roll) the design of the new mobile formatted website!
That didn't really roll of the tongue like I had hoped. We're designing a new website formatted to look good on mobile phones. And by "we", I mean Me (Michael Whit). I was checking my own site out on my phone when I realized it looked horrible (on Android MyTouch Slide), so I decided to design a site that will fit better on the screen.. It's really just the main page that looked terrible, everything else looked ok. You can see a "preview" of it: here. It's not completed yet and doesn't look too fantastic on the computer screen, but check it on your phone (but not your BlackBerry for some reason). It's a work-in-progress.

We had a great time March 26th!:
Hello everyone!

I wanted to make a post thanking everyone who came to the show on March 26th. We had a blast (as usual)!
For those of you who didn't come out, you sure missed a good time! We hope to see you next time though.
Speaking of next time! We are scheduled to play at the Garland Grill again on April 30th. Write it down! You don't want to miss it!

We are also excited to announce the May 28th show! That's a very special show because we will be featuring the country music legend Randy Travis. We will not be doing ONLY Randy Travis songs, but we will be adding a LOT of his songs to our sets in honor of his birthday in May. We'll be doing a lot of his hits such as I Told You So, Forever and Ever Amen and Deeper Than the Holler, just to name a few.

Here's just a sample of what you missed: This was our opening song, Country Boy,
an Alan Jackson song. I encourage you to click on the image below and watch the
video and let me know what you think about it!

Announcing the Michael Whit BAND:

Michael Whit is proud to announce... (insert drum roll) his Texas Country Band!
That's right! We now have a band to back me up. Our debut performance will be Oct 16th at The Garland GrĂ­ll! Check the calendar for specifics (http://www.michaelwhit.info/calendar.asp). We're all really excited about this recent development and the sound with the band is AWESOME!

Foster our drummer comes to us with a lot of stage experience. He's played for a couple symphonic orchestras, various country and western bands, over 2 decades with a swing band as well as a couple names you might know like Bryan Adams and Chubby Checker. He's been playing for 47 years and is a TOP NOTCH drummer; we're very excited to have him with us!

Tommy our bass player, who is temporarily out due to injury, has been playing with several working bands for years. While he will be continuing to work with the other bands, he says he's dedicated to this new band and excited about the direction we're headed.

Carl Anderson will be playing bass for us on Oct 16th. Carl is the pastor of the church I attend (Trinity Fellowship Church in Richardson, TX). He's a great bass player and I'm very excited to have him play with us. Unfortunately, due to his church obligations, he is unable to play with us a great deal, but we're all very happy to have him fill in the low-end for us at our next show!

Of course, you already know Andy Anderson (no relation to Carl) who plays awesome lead guitar and sings alongside me. Andy love low-down dirty blues and adds flair to all of our songs. He plays the Stratocaster, a slide guitar and the do-bro.

We've been rehearsing quite a bit lately and the sound is really starting to come together. We're working on booking gigs starting at the end of October moving forward into the end of the year and on into 2011!

What Love Should Be (a new song):

3 Verses, 4 Choruses and a Bridge...

It's long, but I'm really happy with it. It started as a love song when a friend of mine wrote it for me back in November of 2009 (S. Hale). I put the words to music and performed it on January 2nd in Mesquite for the first time, then I didn't do anything with it....

Until now.

A friend (who wishes to remain anonymous) got it back in her head somehow and encouraged me to look at it again. I thought about it and decided that I wanted to turn it into a song, less about romantic love (or not at all actually) and more about the love we should have for our fellow man. This was a surprise for her because she still envisioned a love song and wasn't expecting the magnitude of changes I had in mind for this idle unused song. It didn't take long to get her into the swing of it though. Once I proposed the over-all idea as well as a general direction for the verses, she was off. She helped me write a lot of the words by sending excel files back and forth and texting: "what do you think about 'But he won't rest, until his job is done' for B17?" She took my vague direction and helped me put specific words to them and I polished them into the song that stands today. While almost all of the verses are completely different from the original song (not to mention a COMPLETELY new addition), much of the chorus and bridge remain. I'm particularly happy about that because I really liked the fact that my friend wrote a song for me and I wanted to keep all that would fit into a new song. The first chorus, for instance, is almost completely the same as the original song.

Great Show June 5th, Thank you!:
I finally got some sleep last night, so I can compose a lucid message now. I want to first thank everyone who came out to see us at the show! We had a great turn out, in spite of several people not being able to make it. I'm not going to thank anyone by name (or I'll be sure to forget someone) but it really was great to see you all! I think everyone enjoyed the show and I know Andy and I sure did! I had such a good time, I didn't even feel my fingers nearly falling off until the very last song.

I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures Larry Lawfer took. It looked like he got at least a few good ones!

We've got another show this Saturday night at Rodeo City Music Hall, in Mesquite. We'll be playing up to four songs on the show among the other artists there.

For anyone interested in going, the show starts at 7:30 and admission is $10 for adults.
The address is: 214 W. Davis in Mesquite, Texas 75149
