Amazing grilled cheese and soup!

Yes, that’s goldfish in this wonderful tomato basil soup with creme fresh.  The salad has a lovely balsamic dressing on it.  And the sandwich is actually macaroni and cheese on a grilled cheese.  This is amazing comfort food on a gloomy, misty day in the northwest.  It was fantastic!

We raised quite a bit of money at Solstice.

We raised quite a bit of money at Solstice this year.  The annual Fremont Solstice Fair is a great event full of crafts, food, music and fun for the whole family.  I volunteer and help organize this event, among others.  Thanks to all the sponsors as well.  The Chamber of Commerce are pleased with how much we raised for its charity that will go back into making the entire Seattle community better.

I had the rare opportunity to explore the catwalk, above the rafters at The Paramount and experience the Wurlitzer.

Paramount drums

I was able to climb the steep ladders, crawl over the top of the ceiling, 4 floors above the stage, walk the catwalk and see all of the amazing instruments that are played when the Wurlitzer is engaged inside The Paramount theater.  The Wurlitzer is an amazing organ, only a few are left in the world.  There is one at The Paramount in Seattle.  When the Wurlitzer keys are pressed on the organ, air currents are shuttled throughout the theater, forcing the individual instruments to play, such as drums, horns, dulciana, chrysoglot and even a harp.  The sound comes through the louvers in the wall so that the entire theater reverberates as if an orchestra were playing.  It was a wonderful experience and this instrument and the organ itself, as well as the theater, are a marvel of technology and history, even though they were invented and built 100 years ago!  I have a new love and respect for both.

Thanks Phil, the caretaker, for this great experience!

Thanks to everyone who made Upstream a success!

This was a great event, bringing together hundreds of bands, sponsors, art, performers, culture and artists to raise money for arts and culture in Seattle.

I want to thank everyone from the Seattle Sounders to Bold Hat productions for all that they have organized and contributed.  Thanks to everyone for all that they contributed to this great event and I look forward to participating in this again next year!

We are getting the band back together!

After playing drums in multiple rock bands including one in England, recording a cd, having a release party, touring the west coast of the United States and having a blast, I have been out of music for a while.  It was time to start looking for a band again or time to find a band that was looking for a drummer.  Well, I finally found one.  Now it is time to buy a drum kit again since I sold mine years ago.

I feel like a rock star as I shop for drum kits, remembering so many good times, places, venues, recording, enjoying the chemistry and experience of being part of an elite musical band.  Now I find that I have missed it more than I know and that playing on stage live is one of the things I miss most.  So here goes, I am rehearsing and planning a tour again soon!
