Just wanted to say THANKS everyone who made it out to the V Spot for my gig with Jackson Vee for his BIRTHDAY Thursday night! We had a blast, hope you did too!!
I remember when I met Jackson three years ago, when I first moved here. I was volunteering, hosting a bunch of benefits for various causes, just to get to know the community. I must've hosted 20 charity/benefit music shows. And every. single. one. had Jackson Vee playing at it. Not only is he a hilarious, super talented musician but he offers his time and talents whenever he can to help other people. That's one of the biggest reasons I wanted to collaborate with him. We absolutely love playing togetherm, so thank you EVERYBODY for making his birthday a happy one!!!
With Vinnie, owner of the V Spot before our gig..... pretty much captures the mood of the night.
Lissa Lou was in 7th heaven over the weekend, hosting the M3 ROCK FESTIVAL in Columbia Maryland! I was with my rock radio show, The Tour Bus – my cohost Ralph and I had a BLAST with all the bands! Nightranger, Slaughter, Queensryche, Sebastian Bach, Winger, Lita Ford, LA Guns, Tesla, Extreme, Kix, Great White, just to name a few. Hanging at events like this you get to see true musicians in their element, timeless, and most of them are the nicest people you’d ever wanna meet.
BUT the major highlight of the weekend was my drive home! Got to swing by my cousin’s house and hang with her super cute kids and some more adult cousins for a few beauuuuutiful hours – FAMILY IS THE BEST! Warmed my heart and recharged my batteries for another busy week.

John Corabi, formerly of Motley Crue, was bragging to everyone at dinner about how I did a great job opening for him last summer = PINCH ME!! This was one of my most cherished moments of all time! My cohost snapped a pic in the moment (thanks Ralphy)
