Hey, I've something cool to share with y'all! When I was with the band Second Frost in Chicago, we recorded an episode for the Chicago Acoustic Underground podcast. Well, it just released this month! There's about 5 of our original songs on the podcast. You can check out at this link. Enjoy!

Thanks to those that came out to Bostwick Lake Inn on Friday! I've picked up some more shows there for August, plus I've got a full calendar for the month of August, including playing Friday at Frankie V's, my favorite good-times sports bar on the southside.

Well, now that another holiday has passed us, the bargain shopper inside of me is excited about two things: garage sales and discounted fireworks. Hopefully I find some of each very soon! In the meantime, I'm playing two shows at Bostwick Lake Inn in Rockford next week, on 7/14 @6pm and 7/16 @8pm. Hope to see you there! Good luck beating the heat! June 26th, 2010
Thanks to everyone that came out to Uccello's and River Bend this weekend! I'll be playing 3 times at Bostwick Lake Inn in July, including next Saturday before the 4th of July. Come on out and celebrate America together! Speaking of America, even though the USA lost its soccer game today, you have to check out this video and check out some good ole' American patriotism in action. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
I've also got some new videos posted from my performance at Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts. Check 'em out! I'll be posting new songs to YouTube soon, so if you want to subscribe to my page, check out TravisAtkinsonMusic on YouTube. June 15th, 2010
Great to see those that came out to my first gig at Riverbend last Friday. Thanks for the support! I'll be playing there again on Friday the 25th, so if you didn't get a chance to come out, you should! Great atmosphere to unwind after a long week, or party before a weekend of yard work or....well....more partying! I'm also playing at Uccello's on the East Beltline on Thursday night. World Cup + live music = a blissful night of fun. If only I played the vuvuzela...

Thanks to everyone who came out to Festival last night! I really enjoyed performing under the "Big Top" of the Outer Fringe stage with my good friend Nate Johnson. We hope you enjoyed it! If you missed it, there will be some videos of the show posted on the website soon in the Photos/Videos section, plus there are a slew of shows coming up this summer (yes I said slew!). Check back often for dates in Grand Rapids, Rockford, Spring Lake, and more!

Hey fans and friends! Long time, no news, eh? Well, I figure this a special day, as it's my good friend Mike's birthday today---or as we like to call it, Cinco de Mike-o. Happy birthday big guy!
In other news I've got some shows scheduled in Grand Rapids, Ada, and Spring Lake coming up in May and June. I'd love to see you there! I had a show at Schuler's downtown in March where I got to play all original music. Hopefully there will be more originals gigs in the near future!
Thanks for your support, hope your Cinco de Mayo is spirited and great!

Friends, I'm not quite sure how to say this, so I'm just going to come out with it. I want to be in your sock. I long to be in your friend's tree. I want to be in your parents' stockings. Now do I have a foot fetish or monkey-like tendencies? Maybe. But that's not what I'm referring to. I'm saying that my new album is the perfect compliment to anyone on your Christmas list. Loved ones will appreciate a thoughtful gift of music. Environmentalists will appreciate the eco-friendly packaging. Foreign exchange students will have something to bring back home and show the mother country. So check out the Music page to buy a copy, or go to iTunes or CD Baby to download or purchase the album. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Howdy folks! This week my album is now available on iTunes! You'll notice that if you search "Jump in my Car" on iTunes, 2 artists will come up: David Hasselhoff and me. Both are names you can trust. Both talk to their cars. But only mine comes without instant associations with a person in a red bathing suit. I know you'll make a good choice.
Keep checking back for news about an all-originals show sometime in January. November 10, 2009
Happy early Veterans Day! My album is now available on this very website! Check the music section for samples, and a link to buy the CD. I also have a gig in Muskegon coming up! Here are the details:
Friday, Nov. 20th Mango's 1811 W. Sherman 8-11pm
Check back often for info about more Grand Rapids gig, and a possible Chicago gig in January!

I've got some show dates in Grand Rapids! Check them out on the list below as well as my calendar.
Hope you can make it out to one of the shows! Thanks for your support.

I am packing and getting ready for my last weekend venture in Chicago before the arrival of our first child. I am also placing the finishing touches on the recording part of my solo album before sending it to get mastered and then printed. Check back here later this month for details on how to get your hands on the album.
I am putting the final touches on my first solo album, which should be available sometime this fall. The guys at Handwritten Recordings in Chicago have done a fine job with my project, and I am excited to share it with all of you when it is ready.
I have also been establishing the music part of the Mancave in our new home, and gigging a few times at Frankie V's on 28th St. in Grand Rapids. As I continue to schedule gigs I will post them on this site.
