A Great Summer of Music!

His summer ended up being much more music-filled for me than I ever expected, as there were interesting shows for my band, as well as great events that I got to play with my daughter, Lexie. We did a big gig in Woodstock with Levon Helm at his “Ramble” which pretty much takes place every weekend. Levon played and sang on my latest “Toolin’ Around Woodstock” cd, ad it was so great to see him again and to play with him. Then Lexie and I got to play at a benefit for a Breast Cancer awareness group on Martha’s Vineyard, which actually ended up being quite a well-received gig, with over 250 listeners attendees.

After that, we and the band were asked to play at a huge private party here on Martha’s Vineyard at James Taylor’s home, where we must’ve played for over 4 hours, and had everyone dancing like crazy! Finally, this weekend, she and I will play an all-acoustic gig here at a performance center, known as The Yard, which normally features world class dancing performances, so it’s their first performance of this kind ever, and we’re really looking forward to it.

The summer certainly is fleeting, and even though it seemed to go by so fast this year, most likely due to all the bad weather, it was extremely rewarding and very rich musically. Nothing like those great summer memories when they’re mixed with musical memories as well, and when yu ca share them with your daughter and a great band, it just makes it that much more rewarding!
