It was a long and very hot tour. Mic was super glad to be home, but left only after a few days to go to Seattle, then back east, which is also experiencing extreme weather. Here are a few pictures from the tour.

The band stayed at Schloss Neuhardenburg the castle where an attempt on Hitler’s life was planned. Valkyrie was a 2008 movie portraying this plot. Side Note: no air conditioning.

We Had A Ball!

Mic was invited to play the National Anthem at the Giants game by Mario Alioto and it was a big “YES”. The Giants played the Red Sox and it was a great game! The Giants won. Mic and I and Meg and her family were all treated to great seats and field access, as well as great parking and a ball signed by Lincecum. He has agreed to played it again on August 13th! Here are some pictures from a sweet day!

Barstow Jr High Jazzhawks Show

Upon returning from Hawaii we immediately left for Barstow on the way to Las Vegas for 3 shows at Southpoint Casino. Dan Barilone is the music director at Barstow Jr High and was a great host.  It was GREAT to see such support for the music program in that community considering all the attacks upon music during budget cuts . The mayor, members of the city council, and school board members were there to support the kids. I wish all communities would join together to help keep music in the schools. The program made money and the kids were so excited about the concert and they were just great to work with.   Mr. B has developed a great little band and it is exciting to see a dedicated teacher making a difference. Congratulations on a terrific and inspirational show and to Roxii who sold 59 tickets to the show and got a free lesson from Mic!! We hope to come back soon! Thank You Barstow and Dan Barilone!

Garden Fresh Huevos Rancheros

This is one on Mic’s favorite breakfasts and is a healthy variation on the theme. A great breakfast to jump start a Hawaiian vacation.
