Fundraisers Raise Much More Than Funds! 

Happy Monday! I was invited to be a part of a couple of fundraising shows this past weekend - one for the Phoenix Blues Society's annual membership drive/food drive to benefit St. Mary's - a local food bank here in the Valley, and the other for the North Mountain Visitor Center. Interesting thing about these kinds of events, Aside from raising money - the obvious goal, of course - they also raise awareness of local issues and needs. Perhaps most importantly, in this cycle of ill-will generated by the currently contentious political climate, music based fundraisers raise the collective consciousness, and offer an asylum of sorts, a place where we members of the community can gather in support of a local cause and forget, for a time, the morass of negativity that threatens to overwhelm us every waking moment.

And here's the title tune from my first CD - Wills And Won'ts....
