On this "Patriot's Day" with many of us facing the devastation of recent hurricanes and wild fires, here's a musical "hug"  "Hold Me Close"

Tuesday, September 5, 2017


With wild fires on the West coast, an approaching hurricane on the East coast, the folks in Texas still in recovery mode, seems safe to say we're having a bit of a wild ride!   So from those of us in the Midwest, we hope you're all staying safe!  Here's a rocker with an appropriate title - -
"Wild Bill" from "Patch Work"

#MusicMonday #ValentinesDay
This week's song feature has special meaning for us. The first time we heard this tune it was done by a legend performing at the Hollywood Bowl. Many years later we added this tune to our "live" set and kept it because it became an audience favorite. We played a version of it at the end of the day when we recorded "Old School" in the studio. Here, then is "Since I Fell for You"…/since-i-fell-for-you
our humble tribute to #AlJerreau
