Dave Mason and Work Vessels for Vets

I was out on the road about two weeks ago opening for Dave Mason in OH and WV. You probably know Dave from his days in the band Traffic and the hit songs "Feelin' Alright," "Let it Go, Let it Flow" and "We just Disagree" (my personal fav).

I had a great time performing of course and it was incredible to be brought up on stage to sing backup on the chorus of "Feelin' Alright" with Dave and his fabulous band. The thing that really made it a special weekend for me was getting to see a taste of what I want and work towards everyday. I love performing and singing and you can bet that I walk around my apt singing all kinds of music (even opera) all day long. I recently realized that I was singing on the sidewalk and was one of "those people," you know, the awkward ones that make you think about crossing the street  - at least the other pedestrians were entertained!

Anyways, it made me realize and affirm even more that playing music is what I want for the rest of my life. It is incredible to get to perform for a large group of people and share your experiences. Its even more incredible when you have the energy of everyone there to feed of of and they are all in the moment with you trusting that you're taking them on a little journey thats going to make their lives better in some way. 

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out and stopped by after the shows to say hello and everyone who emailed me! I am humbled that some of you drove 3 and even 6 hours to be there. You're support means everything!

It was a great opportunity given to me by the folks from Work Vessels for Vets. www.WorkVesselsForVets.org They help returning veterans begin their careers or get back into their educational pursuits. A"Vessel" can be anything that fosters that purpose from a boat to a car or even a laptop. They gave a boat to a veteran at the show in OH! If your company is turning over its computers please contact WVFV they will pay for for them and get them into some very deserving hands!! Please visit their website and support them any way you can. I hope to work with them again in the future. You can find out more about them on their website again at www.WorkVesselsForVets.org or in this video from the weekend!

Talk to you soon!
