I am thrilled to share that I am headlining at the Belly Up in Solana Beach on Wednesday, January 4, 2017. I will be playing with my full band: Allen Johnston (drums), Chris Anderson (bass), Jordan Ross (lead guitar), Israel Garcia (percussion), and Ted Stern (violin). I am honored to share the evening with other wonderfully talented songwriters Lee Coulter and Christine Parker and Michael Tiernan.
And for the really cool part… Our show is a fundraiser for Kids Korp / HandsOn San Diego, an organization purposeful about helping develop “Leaders for Life” through youth volunteerism. We hope you will come and enjoy the show while feeling really good about #givingback as a portion of your ticket price will help this fabulous charity.
I grew up volunteering with a variety of organizations, mainly with Father Joe’s charities as he was a close family friend of ours. As an impressionable little girl, I experienced the power of giving back as a natural part of everyday life–not just something done at certain times of the year–and I’ve carried that with me into adulthood. I know many of you are focused on helping others year round and are instilling those values in your children. Partnering with Kids Korp / HandsOn San Diego to directly benefit from this show is a natural fit for us all.
On another personal note, playing my original music at the Belly Up is a goal Barry and I were working hard to manifest. I trust his Angel wings helped guide this opportunity to open up for me. Losing my Dad and Barry within six months of each other has been a really hard reality to live with. However, I believe wholeheartedly that the energy of love is timeless and they are with me in Spirit lighting the way. I aim to honor them both by putting on a really great show for everyone!
