I'm singing 2mrw w/Gene Stovall, Ricardo Iamuuri & Guaracha!

Hello good people! 
 I am sorry to be sending this out so last minute, but truth be told, I have had the worst cold I have had in a whole year..... While I have been sick I have realized, yet once again, how blessed I am to have my the support network I have around me, my Amoeba, my friends, my family, we are there for each other when we need each other, and so I am happy to be part of a wonderful event happening tomorrow at Shadow Lounge. Please come out to hear some great music and to support one of our own who needs us right now. After this gig I will be kind of laying low for a minute, my summer was nuts, and I have some serious writing to do on a composition I am co writing with a German composer named Jens and a Brooklyn based art collective called Madagascar......we are writing music for me to sing while atop a mobile spider sculpture made of metal by a man called "Hackett". I can give no furthur details at present, but just to say, if you would like to hear me sing in person, short of hiring me to sing in your home, tomorrow is the day! 
"Wifey's Wednesday" Local musicians sing to benefit a local artist in her time of need!

August 22, 2012 at The Shadow Lounge
5972 Baum Boulevard  Pittsburgh, PA 15206
8 p.m., $10 suggested donation, 21 and over or with a parent or legal guardian

"Wifey's Wednesday" shall be an evening of music to raise tangible support for our friend Danielle Robinson. Danielle is an incredible artist whose recent hand problems have caused serious and very painful issues not only in her artistic creation but in her day to day life as well. She has been told by her doctors not to work her day job as a security guard and she has no health care. She is unable to work, pay her current bills or even get the medications the doctors have prescribed. Against medical advice she is looking at going back to work before she even has a diagnosis. Not only is a she our friend and a wonderful painter, she has helped support so many charities and local music and arts that we feel we would like to give back to her in her time of need. She has always been there for us, it is now our turn to be there for her.

If you know Danielle and want to help her out, or just want to see what incredible music is made by her friends and family, please come to the show on Wednesday, August 22 at the Shadow Lounge. Featured musicians include Ricardo Iamuuri, Phat Man Dee, Gene Stovall, Guaracha Latin Dance Band, Tony DePaolis, Carlos Peña and more. The night will include folk, soul, jazz, salsa and a whole lot of love. If you cannot attend the event, please consider donating online to help her. Someday everyone will have health care and someday hardworking people will know that they won't lose their apartments if they can't work for a couple weeks, but right now that isn't the case. Let's not let this good friend fall through any systematic cracks!

I hope to see you there, one love,
