Have Guitar, Will Travel. Below are some show dates for today 7/11 and then more dates in July, August, & September. But first I'd like to share an experience.
A few days ago I experienced the most exquisite joy of placing a pair of shoes onto the feet of a homeless woman from the Tenderloin. She miraculously appeared as I was parking my car preparing to perform in Abigail, the Rock Opera. She also needed food and I gave her what I had. Over the July 4th holiday I had the blessing of traveling and performing in a wonderful play with a few good actor's in San Antonio and then ended that week in visiting loved ones and family in LA.
As I write this e-mail, to this moment I still feel that the glow of this homeless woman's smile as I put one of the many shoes strewn about my car on her feet is the highlight of my year. I pray for more opportunities to give away that which has been so graciously given to me. The day to day business of my life sometimes does not make this easy, but living in San Francisco offers me so many opportunities. She like me lives in San Francisco. I am honored today to be able to support her community by playing music for an event in the Tenderloin.
For now the opportunities to give that come my way are to play music in support of a few good friends and their causes. Here's a list of what I am up to today ( a lot) and over the next few months. I appreciate all support, cheers, and blessings you muster my way. And most importantly I am so trememndously grateful for all opportunities to play music. I am also so grateful to all of you who read and comment on these e-mails as it encourage me to continue to pursue my heights of my hearts love and delight in creativity. Be Blessed in Your Day.

Abigail, the Rock Opera - Great cast, great script, great music. A scary story about the salem witch trials told well. My participation in this project does not endorse any of the practices depicted in the telling of this historically tragic course of events.
