Lucy/Imelda/Jazz and Roller Coasters

July 10, 2008

I have had a busy few weeks and they have been fun. I had the great pleasure of playing for Lucy Lawless at Universal Studios City Walk. She really entertains the crowd and is so much fun to work with! Michael Orland of American Idol fame…and SO much more was the MD of the gig and called me…THANK YOU Michael! I played another great show in Las Vegas with Imelda Pappin under the direction of Ted Perlman. THANKS Ted! It was another well run Perlman show, and we had a ton of fun. I taught my Groove Bood Camp program at the Miami Valley Jazz Camp, then stayed on as an Artist in residence. I had the great pleasure of playing with Don Braden a great player and wonderful person. What a joy to make music with someone like Don…hope it happens again soon.

I am now headed off to the International Music Camp to teach my Groove Boot Camp program, and be an Artist in Residence..very excited to be going back. I also managed to get in a TON of roller coaster rides over the last couple of weeks, and I look forward to some more.
