Music and More Music

Music is called “praying without words”…

The next two weeks are filled with music for me. Music is the embodiment of my persona, allowing me a freedom of expression that is unmatched by all other hobbies. As a jazz/blues performer, music teacher at Model Creek School and choir director at Yarnell Community Presbyterian Church, I have worked with the most amazing and talented people on the planet. The kick-off is Friday, August 31st, at Lohrwood Stock in Yarnell, Arizona. I plan to get them dancing! The following week holds a Steak Dinner Dance at VFW Post 541 in Prescott, Arizona on Friday, September 7th at 5pm. Then on Saturday, August 8th from 5:30 to 7:30pm, I can’t wait to play at Augie’s American Restaurant in Prescott.  If you’re in the area, we’d love to meet you!
