St Catherine's

Jayne & Dorothy both won a free Living Room Concert at the Ignited By Truth conference in February this year at my booth.  They decided to have it at their church: St Catherine of Siena in Wake Forest...was fun sharing & listening to stories during dinner before the show...had time after the show to spend with some friends.  Thank you Wake Forest!

As a college student at William & Mary in Williamsburg, I met some great folks who mentored me in many ways.  Cindy Miller was an upper class woman also from NJ and work with me in music ministry for the Catholic Student Association.  Just before she graduated, she met this very Irish handsome teddy bear of a man, Andy Jennings...that was all she wrote.
Cindy & Andy formed a wonderful partnership on and off the stage.  We have stayed connected through the years.  I was invited to sing at their restaurant in Richmond VA Rare Olde Times...and most recently at the church Cindy is music minister at: Church of the Redeemer.
Andy joined the choir of angels this week...he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
"go in peace Andy Jennings, God be with you - go in peace, be at rest..."

2012 Christian Music Summer Concert Series

This year's program will be at the Good Life Gourmet (MP 4.5 on the bypass in Kitty Hawk) again starting Memorial Day May 28 - Labor Day Sept 3.  I will kick off the season May 28.  We've expanded the program this year to include a 7-8pm set for open mic for those who may not have a full set of material  or who we weren't able to schedule as a featured act.  The 8-9pm set is for the featured act & amp; we have some great ones this year!  All musicians donate their time and the love offering is donated to the Food Pantry & ICO (interfaith Community Outreach).  Hope you will join us - it's a family event, not a service or alter call, just good Christian/inspirational music Outer Banks style!

Manteo first First Friday

Sang last night at Manteo's first First Friday of the season!  Beautiful night with a full moon!, lots of friends & new faces - downtown is looking good, put back together after Irene.  I was set up next to Ortegaz Southwester Grill - good fish tacos Kristen & Dave - thank you! A well fed musician is a happy one!  The Dare County Arts Commission had their grand opening last night as well (after being closed for 8 months due to Irene water damage)  - the place looks great and has a very nice exhibit of our local talent.  If you get to Manteo, check it out.  Rumor has it that the upstairs court room will be a performance area some time in the future - the council is trying to entice more musicians into the organization so musicians put that venue on your list!  I will be back at First Friday Sept 7.

On the way home I stop at Tale of the Whale to chat with owners Carol, Kathy & Dan - the new Gazebo (Irene washed the old one) looks beautiful and, per Dan, is a little larger than the last - that means more seating for listening ears, dancing tots & osprey watchers!
I'm at the Tale this season 5-9pm on Fridays beginning June 15 - check out my web calendar for more dates and venues...come enjoy the beautiful setting.

Earlier this week I got a chance to head up to Duck to the Loblolly Pines Shopping Center to chat with Salty Paws Biscuits owner Susan Beauvais who just opened her new store (she also has her first store in the Jockey's Ridge center in Nags Head).  They are building a gazebo and I'll be there Thursdays: some nights 6-8pm, others 7:30-9:30pm depending on the Town of Duck's concert series (Loblolly is across the street from the Town Green where the concerts are held so check the web calendar for details).

Other venues this season include Avon's Froggy Dog - Wednesdays 5:30-8:30pm, Timbuck II Shopping Center Tuesdays 6-9pm.

 See you soon!
