Hidden Valley To Mohegan Sun

Every now and zen one can feel the merry-go-round world spin. For this reason last year life played a longer chord of time in Hidden Valley...

The under-populated Anza back hills was blissfully breath-taking!! A Christmas highlight united music ensemble with Dholak drum, cello and flute. Thank God, Mike, Drew and Miquel for letting it be!

Memorable Moments This Year;

Thought about Grammy Engineer Pete Novak who recorded 2005 "Chevy Shooga" session @ legendary Encore Studios Burbank. Thanks to studio manager Darryl Caseine.

Sent out message online to re-connect with Pete. He said, "your ears must have been burning was talking to a friend about that session last week!" Thanks Pete who is now staff engineer @ Omega Studios Rockville MD.

Much sympathy to Mouradian Family for loss of Jim the guitar repair extraordinaire on Jan 18. A Few years back got reference from friend bassist Tony Puleo for seeming mishap neck damage to Godin Seagull.

This would be the first and only meet after hearing about Jim from late teacher Mike Turner years before. A performance was scheduled in less than a week...

Jim said, "got a couple months of work ahead but I'll do what I can." I responded, "thanks although I believe the real reason I am here is to finally meet you after all these years!"

In a few days Jim had completed repair. Ahead of schedule with high quality for an extremely affordable price. Glad we met Jim thanks for your kindness. God Bless.

Full circle around again while in Hidden Valley August 2016. Gary Wright's "Dream Weaver; Music, Meditation & My Friendship With George Harrison" auto-biography appears in volunteer room shortly after arriving. Read it then thought to meet Gary follows.

Fast forward many months pass now back in Boston. Gary is scheduled to perform with David Pack's "The Legends Of Rock" @ Mohegan Sun Arena CT Jan 27.

As you might guess things worked out in order to attend and meet acts after show. Thanks to Ann (Mom), Gigi (Aunt), David (Ambrosia), John Elefente (Kansas), Gary (Dream Weaver) and all quality performers who came together for a special night.

Happy & Healthy New Year 2 All

Love & Peace
