The Groove News April, 2013

Greetings Groovesters!! Welcome to the April Edition of The Groove News, the hip happenings of me, Groovy Judy, and my fun and funky band. Happy April! The butterflies are fluttering about, the cherry blossums are in full bloom, it's "tax time," and baseball has started. Woo hoo! What a groovy, glorious month. I'm doing my very first tour of Southern California and I'm truly excited! It's been a dream of mine to play there and it's finally coming true. I'll be playing with Pete and Jane as a lean, mean, rockin' power trio, plus doing one solo show. We're rocking a blues club in Temecula; a cafe and a psychedelic club in Santa Monica; and a Jewish Deli in Los Angeles. Oy Vey! If you live in the area, please come by for a hug and say, "Hello!" I've got some other cool shows this month too, which you can find out about on my events page.

"The Spirit of Giving" campaign is going strong. So far I've been able to donate to a wide variety of charitable organizations throughout the greater Bay Area. I feel blessed and I'm looking forward to keeping it going. Since I've been blessed with the gift of music, this is a fun way for me to share my gift and help those in need. If you'd like to participate in the "Spirit of Giving," the best way to do so is to come to a show. You'll enjoy great music, feel lots of positive energy, shake your groove thang and help others. As a thank you, you'll receive a FREE Download of my new inspirational single "One Day At A Time."

Greetings Groovesters!! Welcome to the March Edition of The Groove News, the hip happenings of me, Groovy Judy, and my fun and funky band.

Happy March! It's mostly known as the merry month of Leprechauns and Easter Bunnies, but it also has International Women's Day, The First Day of Spring and Passover. This month rolled, sneaked, and crept in like a lamb. It doesn't mean that I'll be lying down though! I'm continuing to spread my message of peace, love, joy and hope through my music and my performances (see below) and on my events page. Also, a friendly reminder to please Spring forward on Sunday, March 10 for Daylight Savings Time.

At the beginning of the year, I decided to do small things in a great way by supporting a local charity at each performance I do. I call this, "The Spirit of Giving." In February, I was able to donate to five different local charities. The outpouring of love and support was truly amazing. I feel blessed and I'm looking forward to keeping it going. Since I've been blessed with the gift of music, this is a fun way for me to share my gift and help those in need. If you'd like to participate in the "Spirit of Giving," the best way to do so is to come to a show. I've got some truly groovy ones coming up. All of the details are below as well as on my website events page. You'll enjoy great music, feel lots of positive energy, shake your groove thang and help others. As a thank you, you'll receive a FREE Download of my new inspirational single "One Day At A Time."

And finally, I'm doing my first tour of Southern California in April!! I'm going down with Jane and Pete and we're going to rock the socks off of Temecula and Santa Monica the weekend of April 19-21. The shows are on my events page so if you're in the area, please come by and say,"Hello!"

Keep smilin' and enjoying life to the fullest!

CD update: If you've donated to my upcoming new CD "Love," I'm still working on it and hope to have it ready by the Spring of 2013.
