Q:Just send you an e-mail. Are you still going to be at the Star Bar tomorrow night, Feb 1, 2017? The people at the bar say no, but your web site still says yes.

Really looking forward to seeing you again.

Sorry, Denny thought I took that down.
Thanks for the heads up!

Q:This is Rich and Shelly (met you at Tycoga). Just wanted to say again how much Shelly and I enjoyed your original songs and original interpretations of popular songs. You helped greatly to make our day enjoyable! Can't wait to see you in Galena on November 11 & 12!!

Hello! What sweet words - I'm so glad you like my music. I enjoy what I do and I guess it shows :)
I certainly look forward to seeing you in Galena (pssst...I only play on Friday night Nov 11)
Take care and enjoy!

Q:I caught your performance at UofI today and loved Fiona's Ocean. Can you upload or send a copy. Great song! Really enjoyed listening today. I really needed a little pick me up today and came upstairs to catch some sun outside but your performance was way more recharging for me. Thank you! sberglin@Hotmail.com

Hi Sam,

Thanks so much for writing and I'm very glad you liked my music. I really enjoy what I do and it always makes my day to know that someone listening enjoyed it too.
I was looking thru the computer and can't find a recorded copy of Fiona's Ocean (a recent crash has caused me to lose a number of files). I will be going back into the studio in the next couple of weeks and when I do I'll make sure I record Fiona's Ocean. I will send the MP3 to your Hotmail account.

Thanks again and take care,

Q:when do you play in Davenport,bettendorf again?

Hello! I apologize for not seeing this question sooner (yikes!)
I play in the Quad Cities at least once a month. My regular show is the First Thursday of each month from 7-10p at Grumpy's Village Saloon in the Village of East Davenport (near the corner of 11th St and Mound).
I hope you'll come see me so I may apologize for my tardiness in person :)

Q:Saw you this afternoon at Tycoga Winery. Great show! Always enjoy your music. Fun to watch you and Kenny together. I would like to learn to play your song Where We Left Off. Do you use an alternate tuning for it? Also, from a previous posting, the song I have trouble hearing the lyrics on is Nickle in My Pocket. Hope to catch you again soon!

Hi Gretchen,

Glad you enjoyed the show - what a lovely venue, right? Yes, Where We Left Off is played in what's known as an Open G tuning - DGDGBD and on the CD I believe I'm playing it capo'd on the 3rd fret. If you start with an chord shape that looks like an Am7 and alternate between that and an open strum you'll have the opening strains of the song. As for the words to Nickel In My Pocket I'll work on that this week and send it as soon as I can. (I lost all my docs in a computer crash last year).
Thanks again!

Q:Lojo, we shared the stage with you at The Festival in the Clouds this year. jlmcgee. Don't know if we made it onto your radar but you were kind enough to swap cds with my wife, Lalla.

I just want you to know how much we are enjoying your music. You were head and shoulders above most of the performers in Alma, and your recording is just wonderful. Love "Bad" and your treatment of "Ring of Fire".

We wish you every success and happiness.

Hello John and Lalla,
I love swapping CDs cuz it gives me a chance to really listen to the music of my peers. Thanks for the swap - I listened to your CD on the way home - nicely produced!
It was a pleasure to meet Lalla and a pleasure to listen to your music,

Q:June 20-26 and September 2-11, 2015, I'll be in Minneapolis. Will you be performing anywhere near there then?

I first saw you perform when I lived in St Paul in 11/1993-9/1995. Now, that was a long time ago! And, you're still performing, congratulations!

Hello Karen!
You're the one in Germany, right? I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support after all these years - danke!

After reviewing my Calendar it looks like the ONLY night I"ll be performing anywhere near Minneapolis is Sept 11 in Stillwater (about 40 min east of the Twin Cities) at Charlies Irish Pub (this will be a solo show, not a Hounds of Finn show). I don't know if that will work for you seeing as how it's the last night of your stay but keep an eye on my calendar - you never know what might come up :)

Safe travels ~ Lojo
