Hello Country Music Fans…
Well, it has been a while since I wrote you, so I will try to keep this brief, yet cover so much.
The first and foremost topic is the Chris Fyfe benefit being held on Sunday, April 28 at the Silver Spur in Mechanic Falls from 1 pm to 4 pm. A line up of Maine’s finest Country Music performers like no other with Hall of Famers, Ken and Jane Brooks, Hall of Famer Jeff Simon, Hall of Famer Sharlene Hooper (2019)of the Legendary Hooper Family, the traditional sounds of the legend, Dick Philbrook and the energetic performance by Sharon Hood, one of Maine’s rising female singers and the unique sounds of the Walker Bros from Swans Island! Of course, Hall of Famer, Chris Fyfe and Kevin Overlock will be performing with the multi talented HOF Band, featuring Chris Fyfe on piano, Kevin Overlock on Lead, Hall of Famer, Dana Flood on Steel, Bob Roman on Bass and Andrew Clifford on drums. There will be a 50/50 raffle and a separate raffle on a new acoustic guitar to be drawn at day of show and winner must be present to win! The show will be emceed by “Cowboy” and Norm Poulin, Susan, DH Music Promoter, and myself will be on hand to help with the ticket sales, raffles, etc. Food will be available from the Silver Spur kitchen, so come hungry for both food and music!
Chris Fyfe, as many of his loyal following know had open heart surgery and continues to have ongoing treatment that costs thousands of dollars and it is our hope that everyone that can get away this one day to support Chris and help take some of the financial pressure of Chris will come out and give to this cause. Tickets are $10 at the door. A donation jar will be present for those who wish to give more.
So mark your calendars for a day of REAL COUNTRY MUSIC at its best!!
Now, I apologize for not writing sooner and have only the excuse that my other business ventures and hobbies have taken up much of my time since October. The good news is that I have been writing some of my best material to date!! I had a few months of nothing and thought the well had finally gone dry and then out of the blue GOD blessed me with some great material that I hope to share some on our upcoming new CD’s! Yes, plural, as we are going to be working on number 9 called “Honky Tonk Dream” and number 10 “For GOD and Country”. I just finished a two new Vet songs called, “We Stand For the Flag and We Kneel for the Cross” and “He’s Earned the Right”! A number of other new songs have me excited again, as writing is what fuels my continued interest in the music business! It is in fact, the music business because nothing happens without a song!
Please check out our updated calendar for upcoming events and more to be added! Hope to see you at one of our live gigs this summer!
Until next time, thanks for keeping it COUNTRY!
