Last Living Legacy Lookahead (Come to the show, and I’ll stop all aliterations…)

Just got back from our Thursday night dress rehearsal for the Dan Fogelberg Tribute Show tomorrow night.

If you missed my blog about it a month ago,click here.

I can now report to you my fears. After Monday’s rehearsal, I was really worried. We were stumbling through almost all our parts. The sound was terrible. We had lots of feedback/mic problems. We were not tight as all as a band. Folks were frustrated.

But I can report to you that all of those got worked through tonight. And, if we sound tomorrow night like we did tonight, it’s going to be an awesome show….truly wonderful. Please, please come….if you’re a Dan Fogelberg fan, you won’t want to miss this!!!

Here’s the details again:
Living Legacy: A Tribute to the Music of Dan Fogelberg
Friday, March 31st 7pm
Spring Valley United Methodist Church
7700 Spring Valley Road
Dallas, TX
We’ll do two complete sets with a short intermission in the middle. There is no charge for admission, but an offering will be taken for the United Methodist Committee on Relief.

Please tell your friends….it’s going to be a great night.

During his tenure, church membership has grown almost 30 percent, and a completely new church facility (sanctuary and education building) has been constructed. Northaven is a leading progressive Christian congregation in the Southwest. Northaven is an eclectic collection of gay and straight families, artists, musicians, theater folks, academic theologians, lawyers and judges (go figure), socially conscious community activists, people who don't "check their brain at the door," and a wide array of others who either see it as their "last chance" inside the "institutional church," or their first trip back in decades. Eric is an avid blogger and published author.  Eric is also an award-winning singer-songwriter, who performs throughout Texas and the Southwest. He's an engaging live performer whose first CD was released in 2000. His songs have won honorable mention in both the Billboard and Great American song contests; and he's been a finalist in the 5th Street Festival and South Florida Folk Festival songwriter competitions. Eric is also a leader of Connections, a unique band comprised of United Methodist clergy and layfolk from throughout North Texas. Connections performs "cover shows" of artists like Dan Fogelberg, Chicago, Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor and others. Their shows draw crowds of between 300 and 1,000 fans, and they have raised more than $240,000 dollars for worthy charities. Eric has led or co-led hundreds of persons on mission trips around the globe, to places such as Mexico, Haiti, Russia, and Nepal. He has worked with lay persons to build ten homes, and one Community Center, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dallas. He's a popular preacher, and often tackles challenging issues of social justice in his writings and sermons. His wife, Judge Dennise Garcia, is a State District Judge for Dallas, County. As judge of the 303rd Family District Court, she consistently gets high ratings from area lawyers, and was named "best judge" by The Dallas Observer. First elected in 2004, she was the first Latina ever elected to a county-wide bench in Dallas County. She was re-elected for a third term in 2010. They have the world's best daughter, Maria, and an incredible dog, Daisy. (As always, if you like this post, then "like" this on Facebook by clicking the box below, so others can see too...)
