Hey you guys! I’m really excited about an upcoming show I have. That’s right, show, not a gig (as some of you know, I differentiate). This will be my first full band all original show in a good long while, and I’m ready to get back on stage and start doing what I set out to do in the first place, which is share my music, the stuff that comes from my own mind, heart, and soul, with all of you. I’ll be debuting some new songs too, but then again, to some of you who have never heard me before, the songs are all new, so cheers to that!
But this event is very special and it hits home. It’s an offshoot of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event called Relay Live. Like Relay for Life, this event will be a relay that will raise money for cancer research, but this event will be more of an actual music series and feature several great local bands, will have survivor and caregiver stories, food, games - a huge event for the whole family to enjoy.
Cancer needs to be eradicated from our world. It’s caused so much suffering, not only to those who endure this terrible ailment, but also those of us who can only watch as those we love who are afflicted wither away, those who lose the ones they love.
I have lost family members and friends, including my best friend, to this disease. My father was also diagnosed with prostate cancer a while back, but thanks to God, faith, and the doctors who cared for him, he beat it and survived. He is now a national spokesperson for ACS and he travels to share his story and advise others on what they can do to save themselves and/or the men in their lives from prostate cancer. He also lobbies at both the state and US Capitals to fund cancer research. I’m so proud of him and grateful that he is such a fighter and survivor.
Please join us on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at the Seaholm Power Lawn in Austin, TX. You can get tickets here. Bring your whole family, listen to some amazing music, just have a blast. Let’s do our part in beating this terrible disease. Here’s a schedule of the day’s events:
