Just a last minute post to say how excited I am about the shows coming up in the next few days.
First off, Connections is back with our new show. We’ve been rehearsing the past few months, and tomorrow night we’re back with our fifth tribute show:
Stonebridge United Methodist Church
1800 South Stonebridge Drive
I’ve often written blogs about my love for the artists we cover. I don’t really have time to write an entry on Stevie Wonder, even though he’s a musical genius. But I did write this a few years back about Billy Joel and his music.
I’m more than pleased to be singing some of my favorite Billy songs….”Piano Man,” “You May Be Right”…and most of all “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant.”
And as of Saturday night, I will be able to say I’ve been able to sing my top three alltime favorite songs with Connections (“There’s a Place in the World for a Gambler,” and “Make Me Smile” being the other two…)
Added bonus: Cornell is back!!! The incomparable Cornell K is joining us again for this show, on woodwinds an recreating Steve’s harmonica parts.
Then, Sunday I’ll be doing a short set of my own music at something called “Chile Pepperama.” A whole bunch of local musicians will be providing the music throughout the weekend:
Then, Tuesday I’ll play another noon set of my music for the great folks down at “The Bridge” in downtown Dallas. My friend and fellow bandmate, John Fleming, arranges for a local musician to play a show for the homeless folks there.
