I gotta extend a personal thank you to you, and with an extra helping of gratitude. Putting it out there is one step that is very important, and it leads to other steps on our journey, that’s for sure. In my experience, people often have a considerable influence on the path that gets set before us, and you are such a person in my life. I am blessed that you reached out to me and helped to get the ball rolling for me to be a presence in the South Bay music scene. I could write the chapter of a book about your personal involvement in connecting me to a plethora of players, through both your personal invitations to get me out to sit in and for the recommendations you made for others to hire me.
