Connections Band Tribute to Dan Fogelberg
Friday, May 2nd, 7 pm
Asbury Hall, Lovers Lane UMC
9200 Inwood Road
Dallas, Texas 75220
As many of you will remember, our tribute show to Fogelberg was the very first show we ever did. And to many of us, it holds special place in our hearts.
Here’s what Lovers Lane is saying about it:
In tribute to Dan Fogelberg’s recent passing, Connections’ 18-piece band will bring Fogelberg’s music to life and do their best to honor the memory of this great performer. You’ll hear many of his best known songs – “Leader of the Band,” “Same Old Lane Syne,” Run for the Roses,” “Longer” – but also lesser known gems from throughout his career.
As always, the show will be FREE, and a love offering will be taken for “Nothing But Nets,” the project that provides mosquito nets to African families. More people die each year of the preventable disease of malaria than do from AIDS! Bring your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers … you get the idea. If you can’t make it to the show, you can always make a direct contribution to the cause, and start saving lives today.

I can also tell you that we have added two great new songs to the set: “Tell Me To My Face,” and “Phoenix.” I’m thrilled to be playing and singing Phoenix, along with songs like “Same Old Lang Syne,” “Old Tennessee,” and “Place in the World for a Gambler.”
And a reminder that you can hear clips from our previous Fogelberg Tribute show at our MySpace page.
As mentioned, the beneficiary is “Nothing But Nets.” LLUMC has made an informal goal of raising $5,000 at this show!
That would be amazing.
But more exciting, personally, is the chance to share these great songs from one of my true heros. To help keep Dan’s music alive means the world to me, personally.
Hope to see you there.
