$300,00 FOR CHARITY

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE FANS,FRIENDS, FAMILIES, SPONSORS AND SUPPORTERS OF MIKE'S GARAGE BAND. I SENT THE ATTACHED NOTE TO FELLOW MEMBERS OF MIKE'S GARAGE BAND. THEY ALL AGREED HOW LUCKY WE ARE FOR SO MANY REASONS. I JUST WANTED TO SHARE MY NOTE WITH YOU AND SAY 'THANK YOU" FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS. WE HAD A GREAT CROWD SATURDAY NIGHT AND A GREAT CHARITY TO SUPPORT. WITH THE BRUNSWICK FAMILY ASSISTANCE TEAM HELP , WE SURPASSED $300,000 IN CASH AND SERVICES TOTAL EARNED OVER THE LAST3 1/2 YEARS " I BELIEVE THAT MOST OF YOU HEARD LAST NIGHT THAT OUR TOTAL CONTRIBUTION IN CASH AND SERVICES EARNED FOR CHARITIES.SURPASSED THE $300,000 MARK. THANK YOU,FRED STEVENS AND BRUNSWICK FAMILY ASSISTANCE SIT BACK AND REFLECTON THE ENORMITY OF WHAT WE'VE ACCOMPLISHED IN LESS THAN 4 YEARS. THE NUMBER OF CAUSES WE'VE SUPPORTED AND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HELP. THEN THINK ABOUT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WE HAVE ENTERTAINED.THINK OF THE NUMBER OF ENTHUSIASTIC COMMENTS WE'VE RECEIVED.JOHN AND DAVECAN CONFIRM FROM THEIR YEARS OF EXPERIENCE THAT MOST BANDS DO NOT GET TO PLAY TO CROWDS OF 300, 500, 700 PEOPLE AND SELL OUT REGULARLY. THINK ABOUT HOW WE'VE PROGRESSED MUSICALLY. FOUR YEARS AGO, WE KNEW NO SONGS AND IT WOULD LAKE SEVERAL SESSIONS TO LEARN A SONG AND NOT KNOW HOW TO ADAPT TO ERRORS. TODAY WE HAVE A "SONG BOOK / SET LIST OF ABOUT100 SONGS IF YOU INCLUDE FOR WHAT ITS WORTH. MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE'VE ALL LEARNED TO ADAPT TO UNEXPECTED CHANGES IN THE MIDDLE OF A SONG AND MAKE THEM AS SEAMLESS AS POSSIBLE TO THE AUDIENCE. WE HAVE WRITTEN AND PERFORMED ORIGINAL SONGS LIKE "ROCK FOR Hope ", BEER BUZZ", " THE GOING TOO FAST BLUES" & "SOUTHPORT", WHICH HAS BEEN DECLARED THE OFFICIAL SONG OF THE TOWN OF SOUTHPORT, NC. FINALLY, I WANT TO THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU AND YOUR WIVES FOR THE TIME YOU'VE GIVEN UP FOR MIKE'S GARAGE BAND AND FOR THE UNBELIEVABLE FRIENDSHIPS WE'VE CREATED. YOU GUYS AND WIVES ARE THE BEST. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING MIKE (on behalf of all of Mikes Garage Band)
