World Cafe Live at the Queen

Wilmington, Delaware, US

We were invited back to The Queen to celebrate Seventh Story’s release on a good stage in Delmarpa one more time before heading off into the world. We shared the night with Wylder and Smoke N’ Mangos. I’m thankful for the support for the arts in my original homeplace – photo by @gablemusicventures.

Argilla

Newark, Delaware, US

shane-and-scott

We had a more informal celebration for my new album. Scott and Steve and the Sin City Band play every monday at Argilla. They are one of my favorite musical groups. Scott and I accidentally matched. We played our set from the album release party in a much less formal manner, surrounded by friends with fine brews.

Arkadia Hotel. Details: Feature at open mic.

Melbourne-South Yarra, Australia

Screen Shot 2016-05-01 at 2.24.40 PM

Photo by Andrew G. In the months that elapsed from when I booked the gig at Arkadia to when I would be arriving, the booking agent left the venue…without transferring all the bookings on the calendar to the new crew. I sent a check-in message a little bit before the show. They wrote back, surprised. An open mic was scheduled for the evening, so they penciled in some time for me to feature. It was a great venue with nice and attentive folks. The talent in the room was unreal, and I wouldn’t have that evening any other way.

God knows who took his photo… It wasn’t me, Guru, Ryan or Em, cause we are in it. It could have been literally anyone else in the whole entire universe. But it was probably Kae. This was the farewell to Em McKeever. She and the lovely Ryan Gingo joined me on a couple weeks of the SEAside tour. They make everything better in life. If you ever get to habg out with them or hear the music that they create, you are a lucky son-of-a-duck.

Reggae Bar

Screen Shot 2016-05-01 at 2.36.04 PM

Photo by Em M. Our show for Feb 20 had been cancelled due to legal trouble with the establishment. We had already made the multiple-day trek to Koh Chang for the gig. We dicided not to be too upset about the cancellation, because after all, we were still on an island in the Sun in Thailand. Through a connection, someone set up a show for us in the heart of the night district at Lonely Beach in the Reggae Bar, with two days notice. This was a really cool place, full of great people. They paid us in booze, which was dangeresk, as we had driven ourselves to the show on motorbikes.

My photo. Bagan is a magical place. A good part of the audience at the Hti Bar were hot air balloon pilots. I played for nearly four hours, and ended up improving a few songs about floating over the earth. After mounting a motorbike and tracing the winding way back to my place, I slept for a couple hours and then drove across the countryside on the motorbike watching the air balloons overhead in the sunrise.

Vieux Port

Marseille

Photo by me, while the other folks were playing. This evening brings up the question, “what constitutes a show?” Some people I met in Thailand invited me to Marseille to play music in the port. They said it was cooler to play outside than in an establishment. We just played by the water, and people listened as the shadows around us lengthened. Is this is a show? I don’t think so, and I don’t care. I spent a few days in the area, playing songs in people’s houses, and not caring what a concert was.

We met accidentally, when a newspaper in Massachusetts misprinted a phone-number on an advertisement. I called him up in Maine (thinking he was The Lucky Dog Bar in Worcester). We chatted a while, and he got me a show, and we hit it off. I am forever grateful to Greg for his kindness and support throughout the years.

Marc Rogers

This is Marc Rogers. He has been a DJ at WSTW and supporter of local music for a long time. He is an integral part of our local community. I know that a radio broadcast is not a concert, per se, but I wanted to include this entry to highlight the man, the myth, the legend.

Newark New Century Club

Newark, Delaware

Newark New Century Club

Photo by Michael N. This was the release celebration for my album, “Emerging.” It was a magical evening, as you can see by how enthusiastically Rachel’s chillenz are dancing. I miss the Newark New Century Club. The thing is, it was from another century, and they had to tear it down to make condos–like everything in Newark.

Dewey Beach Music Conference

Dewey, DE

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 11.59.43 AM

Photo by Alyssa R. DBMC was really fun. We shared the stage with a bajillion talented musicians from all over. There was plenty of time to appreciate each other’s noise. There were schmoose&booze times with free food and drinks. We also gave the sound man an opportunity to mix lots of small, strange acoustic instruments along with a full drumset. This event was soon after I had broken my T7 vertebrae. I was supposed to be on rest, but I wanted to play music. Having so many Diner Club friends together, we rocked too hard, and I got too in to it, bending my back too much. Perhaps not a good life decision for my physiology, but oh the memories from that weekend!

Paradocx Vineyard Tasting Room

Kennett Square, Pennsylvania

Photo by Dianne M. Old family friends became involved with the Paradocx Vineyard, which is right around the corner from where I grew up. They have a tasting room up in Kennett. Nothing quite like tasting wines and twisted teas and meads and singing a few tunes with good friends.

Wilmington, Delaware

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 11.57.42 AM

Photo by Lauren K. “Nothing feels better than blood-on-blood.” I have spent my whole life playing music with by brother. His lady has been around since I was chewing on Legos. For a while, we were playing together in a band with friends, called Alidade. When BFA asked me to return, we came in force. Trees & family make for a good time.

Brandywine Folk Festival

Kennett Square, Pennsylvania

back

Photo by Harmony M. Sorry if this is becoming a story about my back. I found it ironic that my back was busted, and my most popular jam at the time was called, “back.” Anyhow, this was a pretty legit festival in one of my favorite areas of the world. They had a massage table set up. I got one–the only one I had ever had. It’s strange trying to think about photographs. The fellow pictured on the right was an integral part of the Delmarpa arts scene for years. He is dead now.

Photo by Pat D. We played as Alidade this evening. It was my first official show since busting my back. People had nicknamed our band “The Woodchuck Chuckers,” and kept bringing my Woodchuck Ciders all night. This helped with the short-term pain….perhaps not my long-term recovery. I wouldn’t carry a guitar, and wouldn’t bend my back. But, standing as still as I could, my brother handed me a guitar, and I played as best  I could.

Uncle Bob’s Chicken Dystopia

Lowerslower, Delaware

uncle bob's

Photo by Harry A. This was not a concert, per se, but it was an all-day music jam and a notable life event. Kevin Natrin there can play just about any old folk song. We had a porch jam all day and a little concert shindig on the lawn that evening. Sometime early on, I broke my T7 vertebrae while playing a game of pickup soccer. It was not even a real game. And my glorious move did not turn out to be so glorious, but it did turn out to be memorable. With my back hurting like the dickens all day, I sat around on the porch, laid around in the yard, and imbibed some depressants to offset the pain. We had a good ol’ time jamming. After a week of persistent pain, I went to the doc and had them shoot some radiation in me with their fancy Xray machine. Yep, I was sure busted. Good times on Uncle Bob’s chicken farm.

Photo by Erin R. This is a part of a yearly benefit concert. This event has been hosted by the Regan family for years. I don’t often sing my songs in churches anymore, but this fam always invites me. I know and love them, and I feel tat music has no borders, so I always come out for them if I’m around.

Trocadero Theatre

Philadelphia, PA

Shane Palko Troc

Photo by unknown–probably Michael C. or Momma Palko. The Troc is a magical venue. I skipped my high school graduation to play drums for a rock n’ roll show there back in the day. I wore my graduation cap out on stage. My brothers were the righty and lefty guitarists on either side of the stage. After the first song, they switched my tassel, and I tossed my cap. That was it, I had graduated into the world of music. So, returning to the Troc years later was surreal. The soundman kindly recorded our set, and I released it as a tour fundraiser the following winter. You can find it here on iTunes, or search it up anywhere else that music lives on the internet.

DOUBLE CD RELEASE PARTY

Landenberg, Pennsylvania

snow day shane palko

Photo by Michael N. We were celebrating Alyssa Regan’s album release, as well as the release of the Snow Day CD! Em and Matt and I recorded an album called, “Snow Day.” It was really a cool collaboration. I think we pondered making a more exclusive trio of the three of us, but then they kicked me out. I guess I wasn’t cool enough at music yet. Oh well. Anyhow, I played the drums for Alyssa’s album. She has this gnarly song called “Robot Lover” that has way too many time-signatures in it. It is brilliant, and you can check out the music video for it here.
