~ Bernstein = the hardest music ever to learn. Genius way evident. And evening of his stuff, Ellington/Strayhorn, and Sondheim, and I’d become a basket weaver…wish me luck this Thursday.

~ See this cute couple? That’s my sort-of nephew Ben Hallman and his partner Rocky. I just shook hands on a deal with them - together they are Hallman Productions - This little fledgeling hotshot company is a primary videographer for Bethlehem Musikfest (world’s largest free music festival), and so much other work. They managed to find time for me and my meager budget to pro video either Pie and Whiskey, Good, Good, Man, or Cousin Shelly”s Station Wagon. We shoot Memorial Day Sunday or Monday in Brooklyn, locations and exact time to be determined. Wanna be in the video lip-synching to something? Or just come watch? Lemme know.

~ This week is a bit nuts, for in addition to the 4 shows this weekend (Sunday is a private Poughkeepsie thingy - you can have one of these too if you ax me) I will be flying model planes during the first half of both Saturday and Sunday in Wawayanda, NY here-

Many folks have asked about this model flying that I do, so again I momentarily mix my vocation and’s a chance to see it first hand. It’s a big mile square sod farm so be ready to 1) be outside and 2) wait until whomever you want to chat with is NOT winding a motor in their model airplane. Weather looks to be potentially nice.

Here’s a video of a flight of a few of our “birds” from last year. Yeah, you can hear me. Sorry. I get so excited...No radios, no gas engines. One plane has a micro camera, all have rubberbands as power.

~ Today I start inputting names into an alphabetize-able file for the album. You can have your name on this album still.
Any amount. for PayPal, Vancefunder PO box 17, Arlington MA 02476 for hard core checks. We will probably finalize artwork by first, second week of June. for details

Coaching of songmaking, perfomanceship, vocal-doing, and the private partyplaying can happen. peace and xo
