As always, admission is free, but a love offering is taken to benefit theUnited Methodist Committee on Relief. Unless we really bomb out attendance-wise, this show will be seminal because we’ll pass the $10 K mark in terms of the money we’ve raised for this great cause.
It’s kind of hard to believe we’ve been that successful, really.
Connections, as you may remember, is an almost 20-piece band that does “cover shows” of our favorite artists. To date, we’ve done a Fogelberg Show, and an Eagles/Chicago Show. A “James Taylor/ Carole King” Show is planned for this Fall.
We started with our Dan Fogelberg covers. It actually started with Rusty King, our band leader, and me figuring out how many Fogelberg songs we already knew. Over the years, we started jamming with friends, and it just exploded from there. And I think everybody in the band still has a great fondness for Fogelberg’s music…not only because it’s great, but because it was our first show.
I will play guitar (the new Santa Cruz) and sing on almost everything. I’ll sing lead on:
Same Old Lang Sine
The Last Nail
There’s a Place in the World for a Gambler
To the Morning
People tell us all the time now that they love the shows, love the music, and can’t believe how good it sounds.
I’m personally pleased that we’ll be honoring Dan Fogelberg again, because I continue to hear that he may be in declining health, due to his battle with prostate cancer.
These are great songs that deserve to be hear, sung for a good cause. So I hope you’ll plan to be there.
