OUTMusic: Breast Cancer Awareness

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Good Evening,

It’s almost morning by my account. I just wanted to drop you a few lines to let you know that last night’s Outmusic Open Mic was a wonderful fundraiser for Breast Cancer awareness. There were moving testimonials of how women battled the disease like true warriors, armed with their creativity to survive. There were some great performances. I think they were all were great and very different. We had blues, hip/hop, folk, rock, jazz and comedy.

I had a blast singing last night. I have to thank all the organizers at Outmusic for their warm welcome. I felt at home there and I really like the new venue. They created a nice space and the GLBT Center in Manhattan and kept it intimate at the same time. I posted a couple of pics.

Athena Reich made us laugh. The duo reminded me of Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin. Ganessa James can make a guitar hum and she’s got a great voice to go with it.

Thanks to all the fellas that came out to support. It was a truly a ‘family affair.’  Thank you, Outmusic.
