Been A Busy Summer So Far

Back in late June, I was on the coast in Manzanita, performing mainly originals and some cover tunes at The Hoffman Center.  Intimate and responsive crowd.  Sold some CDs, too.  I was joined on stage for Elton John’s, “Love Song,” by long time friend, Sher Ireland.

So yeah…things are groovin’!!
