What's happening in 2024?
*Dear Music Friends*
Yes, 2024 is here!

Welcome to 2024 and to us. We sincerely hope you--reader-- and all our fellow humans celebrated the happy holidays and are feeling good vibes.

We're so exited we have kicked off our 2024 with a "First Saturday of the New year" gig this past weekend with our Funky4  Happy at the Flying Monkey--BigPhatJoy it was!

This year will be extra special for me as I reach two milestones: my 45th year on the professional stage and my 65th-birthday celebration in July!

In light of Warren's and my steadfast forging of new material, my label Laroo Records shall celebrate its 30th year, perhaps, punctuated by a new release.
