We're Back in the Saddle Again! A Houston Update...



Hi there Music Friends & Fans,

It's SO nice to be home! (Clicks heels together): There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like HOME! (sigh.)
Just an update. We survived RECONSTRUCTION (well mostly...!), and we're back in our (mostly?...) completed house in Houston again, Post-Harvey. Yay!!  We're feeling thankful and very blessed to be home, can you tell? Even the dogs are happier-and so are the squirrels and birds who missed me feeding them (and our dogs chasing them?) every single day! Ha!
Some News:
Please continue to PRAY for Houston as we are still in the midst of re-building, and there are still many who are homeless, routed from homes, lost everything, jobless, or just generally down and out...
I'm in a fantastic NEW BAND called the Six Alarm Band (well the band's been around awhile, but we've been doing a little re-grouping). We play hits from the 60's to 80's and some hopping oldies, and we're in the process of updating websites, etc. now. I'll fill you in on more details soon...but we DO have 2 upcoming Houston Area performances:

Mo's Irish Pub N. (on Vintage Park),  June 15, 7-10pm  More info TBA http://mosirishpub.com/houston/
Mo's Irish Pub in Katy (on the Katy Frwy),  June 29  7-10pm  More info TBAhttp://mosirishpub.com/katy
I also am in a great jazzy duo called DeDe & DC* and we just performed a fun cocktail party in West U this past weekend and we have a lot more coming soon...

Lastly, I'm on the Board of, and I'm traveling to the International Music and Entertainment Awards in Ashland KY June 16, where I'm nominated in Categories 1 & 2 for "America United", and I appreciate all your VOTES very much! I hope if you're a musician you'll check out and join this very fine non-profit Indie Music organization and submit your music!

Larry and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your thoughts, emails and prayers during this trying time. We are blessed to know you and have you as friends & supporters-we love each of our fans, friends and musician family so much!

Wishing you God's every blessing, and I hope you're enjoying this gorgeous Springtime!
