Saturday at Rose City Food Park

I’m back at Rose City Food Park this Saturday afternoon from 3-4:30pm, as one of the featured musician’s for their Mini Brew Fest.   The weather for Saturday looks hot, which means, cold brews and live music wait for you.  I’ll be jamming cover tunes from Hall & Oates, America, Billy Joel, Elton John, Elvis and some of my own stuff.

Sit a spell and cool down this Saturday afternoon.

Playing at Local Food Park

This Saturday afternoon I’ll be playing some of my originals along with cover tunes at the Rose City Food Park (5235 NE Sandy Blvd) from 2:30-4pm.  The weather looks great and so should the food.  Stop on by – I’d love to see you.

Buy Music and Support Immigrants and Basic Human Rights

This Friday, February 3, for any purchase made on Bandcamp, they will donate 100% of their share of the proceeds to the American Civil Liberties Union, who are working to oppose last week’s Executive Order barring immigrants and refugees from seven Middle Eastern countries from entering the United States.  

The picture I am holding in the photograph below is of my grandfather, who had dual citizenship. Born in Minnesota but raised in Denmark, he  came to live in America circa 1913. Was a WW1 Veteran and eventually settled in Clinton, Iowa owning a small grocery store.  I dedicated my 2012 album, “In Those Days,” in part, to my grandfather.

If you feel so led, please visit my bandcamp page  and review the music I have for sale.  I not only have “In Those Days” available, but some singles and instrumental music, as well.

Also, visit other artists and support them while supporting Bandcamp’s mission to help raise funds for immigrants and basic human rights.
