It was a truly wonderful, wonderful night. The Dan Fogelberg Tribute Show went really, really well. All those rehearsals paid off, the band really came together and was TIGHT. The instrumental stuff sounded good. The vocal stuff sounded good. From our perspective on stage at least, the sound mix was really good. And many of you told us the same during intermission…
Speaking of you….you showed up! Approximately 250 of you showed up!! And you stayed! You stayed through intermission and through every last night of “Gambler.” (What fun it was to have all 250 of you singing along with us at the end! And thanks for the generous applause)
At this point, we know that we have at least raised $2,500 for the United Methodist Committee on Relief. This money will help UMCOR respond quickly to the next natural disaster or global conflict that arises. Thanks for your generosity.
Well, there is a lot more to say about this show. I’m still up on cloud nine. I think everybody in the band is. I am told that there are at least two sets of pictures from the night (digital ones) and I’ll post some as soon as I can get my hands of them.
And when I have the pictures to help me tell the story, I’ll post a more detailed description of the show, the songs, and what the whole evening was like.
But for now,
…to Dan Fogelberg who inspired us all
…to all you who came
…to all you who gave so generously
…to all the dozens of great volunteers, and staff, at Spring Valley
…to our really kickin’ 20-member band
…and especially to my friend, Rusty King,
