TIME IS GROWING SHORT! NEXT WEEK I WILL BE GOING TO THE KUSER PARK GAZEBO AND DOING A "DRY RUN" TO CHECK OUT THE AUDIO FOR THE UPCOMING SUMMER 2012 CONCERT SEASON.
Above is a photo of the 4 x 8 foot sign which Hamilton Township's extremely talented sign shop installed at the corner of Leonard and Newkirk Avenue announcing my 7th year of musical sing along concerts at Kuser Farm Park. I will be keeping this graphic on the top of this blog during the ensuing weeks. I hope to see a number of visitors to this website at one or more of these uplifting fun concerts. If you do attend, please be sure to say hello. My computer music repertoire has continued to grow over the past year and I will be doing many new songs including songs of faith and inspiration. The graphic below shows my initial appearance at the Kuser summer concerts back in 2006. It was a success, but there was an unforeseen glitch. The days get much shorter at the end of August, and unknown to me and the township, the lights were set to go out at dusk. So, halfway through the two hour event, the lights went out; the only light left burning was a single overhead light in the center column of the gazebo. With the main lights around the interior of the gazebo off , I was singing in the dark with only the night light and my computer screen emitting light. I asked those in attendance if they wanted me to call it a night and they responded with a resounding "no!" So as they say,"the show must go on". It did, and the next hour of darkness was enjoyed by all as we sang all those familiar oldies. As you can see on the sign in the photo below, those who preceded me were all paid professional musicians. I didn't expect, nor did I get the large attendance one would expect from professional talent. However, the 40 or so who did attend had a wonderful time and wanted my assurance that I would be back in 2007. I was, have been, and will continue as long as I am able, and as long as the township wants me.
