We had a serious blast at the Northaven Coffeehouse last Friday night. A nice crowd saw a great show with me, my friends Rick O’Connor and Jack Kennedy, and Richard Newton sitting in.
And on the heels of that…. a quick reminder about the show Saturday night:Connections Band

Here we are at the Chicago/Eagles Tribute last year:
And here are some sound clips of us from various shows.
We had a good rehearsal tonight, and we’ve got one more tomorrow night too. The show is really coming together. For the Carole King stuff, we feature three really great women vocalists: Ann Willet, Jennifer Rawlinson, and Lisa Rucker. (Lisa also plays killer sax throughout…)
I’m getting to play and sing some of my all-time favorite JT songs, like “Something in the Way She Moves,” and “Country Road.” And we close the show with me singing and playing on “You’ve Got a Friend,” “Fire and Rain,” and “Shower the People.”
Come on and sing along…you know you like this music…admit it. It’s way back there in your music DNA, and you know it. Nobody’s too cool to be reminded how great these songwriters and songs are.
They’re be great desserts, and the show is free. But we will take a love offering for UMCOR. Rusty King, our band leader, figured out today that if we net an offering of $2,000, that will put us over the $10,000 mark raised for the second year in a row.
“How sweet it is” to be able to sing these great songs, and raise money for this great cause.
Hope to see you there….
