Wow, October flew by and I loved every second of it. I’ve been traveling around playing shows on the east and west coast for most of the month seeing family, seeing friends as well as making new ones. I couldn’t ask for a better way to spend my time. On top of that, I got to play at some great venues and help a great cause.
Music 4 More http://www.music4more.org is a fantastic organization started by my friend Deidra Stevens. This charitable organization provides financial support as well as instrument donations to struggling music programs in schools so children can experience the joy of music education. There is no question that music helps children in many ways. From social interaction to intellectual stimulation, music helps children become more well rounded individuals which in turn shapes their future.
The Alternate Routes was the main band touring around the east coast playing in venues and even schools to promote this charity. The Alternate Routes are a great bunch of guys and I was lucky enough to open for them in Boston, Bridgeport and Baltimore. I was also able to play in New York at The Bitter End which is my favorite place to play in NYC. The folks there are like no other and I appreciate them always having me back.

Be happy and help others.
