been very busy for me the last few weeks. We dropped off my oldest son Henry to
college to start his junior year. He’s been doing well so far in school with
straight A’s My daughter Eleanor started her sophomore year in high school
and is involved with many activities and my youngest son is in 5th grade
who just started up cub scouts soon to be a boy scout. It’s been busy but
The Christhaven concert went very well despite a bit of
rain. It looked like it was going to get nasty but the rain held off. People came
out and they loved the concert. It was fun for me and the band as well.
am performing mostly private engagements right now so that’s keeping me very
busy. I’ll be sending out info for festivals here in the next month or so.
If you have contact information for festivals, clubs etc, please send them my way
or try and pleas eget me a booking.
Creating the moments for your kids
Well it doesn’t happen as often as I would like it
to but a few weeks ago, a special moment was created for my youngest son Samuel.
He’s 10 and never been to a professional baseball game. So I took him and
my oldest son to see the KC Royals. They were playing the Oakland A’s. That
night the Royals beat Oakland. That was also the night the Royals moved into 1st
place by .5 game ahead of Detroit. It was a very crowded stadium and the roar of
the crowd filled the place. It was great to have both my son’s experience
I recently performed at a private party for a group of
people I have performed for in the past. This party was to celebrate a friend’s
birthday even though his birthday was 3 months away. He grew up on a farm so all
his friends dressed up as his ancestors and told ancestral stories. Guys dressed
up as old granny’s so it was very entertaining and amusing to watch. He was
laughing the whole time but afterwards he was deeply touched. I was moved by the
effort they went through for this one man. One person traveled all the way from
Virginia just to be there. Deep down this is what we were designed for. This
type of community and relationship.
Needs No Batteries..
some more pics from my backyard:
I shared this with my youngest son
Samuel while we were in a hotel room while taking my oldest son to college. It was
a Sunday morning. We didn’t go to church so I opened the bible and read from
psalm 18. My son loves his ipod and sometimes gets addicted to it and then he has
to put it down to recharge. I asked him, what could give you more excitement God
or your iPod ? he mentioned God. I asked then, what should you spend more
time with, God or your iPod ? he said God but he spends more time with his ipod.
I told him, God never needs batteries and he can always refresh you and keep you
more song needs to be mixed and then we need to go through the final mix process.
Please help me with the cd by keeping me in mind for private parties or if you hear
about someone needing some great uplifting jazz saxophone music for a particular
event. I appreciate any help you can offer. Also please pray for the success
of this cd.
