a gorgeous night out in toronto @ the Campbell House Museum. HAydn, Mozart, and The Wooden sky.
Friday night was a beautiful night in Toronto. I partnered up with the Campbell House Museum located on the northwest corner of Queen and University to put on an evening of live music. After living in Toronto on and off for the last several years it feels totally incredible to be able to put on a live music event in the city and it be so successfull. Of course it was amazing that the morning of the show I got a call from the museum saying that it was completely SOLD OUT, however the real reason it was successful is that people arrived shortly after 7:00 pm and many of them stayed out until midnight, and had an amazing time. I've been wracking my brain and dreaming about ways to put on amazing events for my friends, my community, my city, our world - it is not easy!!! All the ingredients have to be there - but basically what it comes down to is an awesome vibe. And maybe a bar to order a drink or two, alwasy helps!!! Well, thanks to Gavin Gardiner of the Wooden Sky, Keith Hamm, Alex Read, and Britton Riley we created a beautiful Vibe. I have these amazing gentleman to thank because for me music is all about collaboration. And not just amoungst ourselves, but also a collaboration with the audience. If you're not going to tell the audience a story, then why do they show up?? I want to share my love for the music, the city, the day, as do all of my amazing colleagues, and people come to be part of that!!! It's so exciting to find a team that is on the same page. and to have them also be absolute total world class rockstars is also a bonus. I can honestly say, look any of the guys up from the show on friday night for any show that they are apart of and you will not be dissapointed.
Let me also just take a moment to give a shoutout to the audience. Alot of them stayed for 5 hours to hear us play Haydn, Mozart, a set with the ever engaging and powerful vocalist and guitar player Gavin Gardiner, a Kitchen Jam, a friend Jenna Rogers sharing some of her songs, and Keith Hamm and I tearing up a fiddle tune or two.... THANK YOU!!!
So, there is definitely more to come, I'm hoping to organize a couple of these shows next year at least, so stay tuned, let me know how you feel and what you want to hear, let me know what you love,
until next time.

Wow, you really had a great night there. The place that you had been performing a live music was very beautiful, I wish I could go there sometime. Also, it seems that the show was very successful and people love it so much. Imagine that you perform the greatest composition of some well-known artist in the music industry, that was very awesome. Additionally, the audience indeed loves it, the songs and you, guys perform, they stayed for almost 5 hours just to enjoy your performance. You guys really did a great job, I wish I could go in one of your performances soon.
