January/February Update

Hey, everyone! Sorry it’s been awhile. Had to recover from that awesome show I had with my band, Electric String Quartet, at the Cedar Cultural Center. We recorded a live DVD there and I can’t thank everyone enough for coming out. It truly meant the world to me. We hope to release the DVD in July or August and to tell the complete story of our concept on Alzheimer’s with band interviews, doctor interviews, and stories of families with a loved one going through Alzheimer’s as the show progresses. We hope to bring awareness locally, regionally, maybe even nationally. Only one way to find out!

Last weekend, I went on tour with Randy Sabien, an amazing jazz violinist in the Twin Cities. It was a lot of fun and I got to play with some wonderful musicians including the funky drummer, Clyde Stubblefield! Super cool. This thursday, for Valentine’s Day, I’m playing at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre for a Gene Pitney Tribute show with Gary Rue, Gene’s head music director for twenty years. It’s all sold out at the moment, but we hope to keep doing the show in the future, as it’s a wonderful music catalogue. 

Leaving this weekend for a church retreat at the Kalahari and at the end of the month, traveling with Randy Sabien again to the American String Teacher’s Association (ASTA) Convention in Providence, Rhode Island! I never realized just how busy I have gotten this year. Blessed and thankful for all these opportunities. I’ll keep you updated more often, promise!
