The next two Saturday nights will be filled with music.
Saturday, June 6: Music in the Key of Life
This is going to be an awesome evening of vocal music at California Heights UMC in Long Beach. Personally, I’ve only got a small part singing in the chorus on a few songs, but for fans of good vocal performances – there is going to be some amazing singing happening! If you enjoy vocal music, be there. Plus, it’s a charity event supporting Mary McLeod Bethune Transitional Center for Homeless Students and California Heights UMC’s Children’s Center.

Saturday, June 13: K of C House Band Party
Another rockin (k)night of covers with the House Band at the Manhattan Beach Knights of Columbus Hall. $10 cover will go towards the Knight’s Scholarship Fund. I really enjoy doing these gigs with my friends from American Martyrs because my buddies let me play lead guitar!

(FYI, this will be a really busy day since I’ll be heading to the K of C Hall immediately after leading worship at Faith UMC)
Speaking of Doug, he just released a really strong collection of tunes under the NoVanGogh moniker. It’s a digital-only release called My Own Gallery and it’s available at most online places, including iTunes and Amazon. Doug and I have been collaborating on songs for years, and this collection includes three of the songs we’ve written together: One Wish, Never Fell So Hard, and Romance Is Dead.
Also, a while back I recorded three original songs for use in an upcoming Faith UMC Music Ministry CD. One of the songs will be my personal contribution to the benefit recording, the other two will feature other artists from church.
So, lots of things are happening, and even more things are in the works!! It’s an exciting time!
