Also, I have heard from a couple different sources that other Pittsburgh based groups are having benefits for Haiti so there are other local opportunities to give to this wonderful nation who just needs some
help right now.
I am excited to have this show because we have such a wonderful line up of performers and I am in a little awe of who all has agreed to come out , and personally I am also excited about my set, I only get
25 min, but I am sharing it with some wonderful musicians, I'm singing with Colter Harper, Tony DePaolis, Jeff Berman and my special guests
are vocalists Gene Stovall, and also Genia the lead singer of Machete and Miguel Sague III is joining me with his congas for a couple tunes as well.
