Taking a step back to reflect on the weekend! We hosted the Album Release Concert Party at Day Block Brewery in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday the 25th. I couldn't have been more humbled by all of the beautiful faces that showed up to support the release. At one point I looked around the room and thought - wow - how many worlds just collided here and how cool is it that we are all celebrating something we are all in together - together. Co-workers, friends, family, people who were from MN, and traveled in from out of state, young, old, gay, straight, all races, democrat, republican, people I knew, people I just now met, people I still haven't met but were there (that I hope to meet soon). It was a mash up of all worlds that make up one body of beauty. Man, am I ever feeling grateful. I couldn't have asked for a better crowd to sing my heart out too. DJ Chrystal Mann is such an amazing partner in this, and absolutely crushed her part of the set - I'll forever remember watching everyone dance their hearts out at the end! I think Day Blocks amazing brews may have helped in everyone having a little liquid courage as well :).
Between the piano, the guitar, the ukulele, the beats Chrystal threw down, the acoustic sections ... to Kelly who we pulled up on stage out of the crowd (I wrote a song live on the spot for her) - thanks for being a great sport!!! I hope you all enjoyed your night and it's my hope that your ears were filled with music you'll continue to listen to throughout the weeks!
We are in this together, and we are making dreams come true. Thank you for being my inspiration, and for throwing one heck of a release :). IN IT TOGETHER!
Until the next gig :)
