NDSM Benefit Show

One of my favorite shows the last few years has been the benefit show for North Dallas Shared Ministry . The past few years, it’s been held at another local church in the area. This Friday, it will be at our church.

I’m pleased to let you know that I’ll be playing with my friends, Rick O’Connor and Bruce Hathaway. We’ve played some really fine shows in the past, but haven’t had the chance to play together for a while now. (You can hear some of our previous show clips here).

Also playing that night will be “Jack and the Catdaddies.”

Suggested admission is $10/person.

Here are the show details:

NDSM Benefit Show
Friday, May 5, 7 pm
Northaven UMC
11211 Preston Road

Last year, we raised over $2,000 for this great organization, and I hope we can top that total this year. As with last year, I will plan to donate 30 percent of all CDs sold that night straight to NDSM.

Hope to see you there!
