Jersey City Pride

Monday, August 28th, 2006

Saturday, August 26th marked my return to the stage for the first time in two years and it was a wonderful experience. I made an appearance at Jersey City Pride and. It couldn’t have gone any better. Working with the crew at JCLGO was great. Their stage crew and volunteers run a first rate operation. I was very impressed by their level of professionalism and hospitality.Performing really does something for me spiritually and I must never let it go that long again. That was then and this is now. Since I sang at the beginning of the show, they asked me to sing the national anthem. That followed with “Whatever It Takes” and “Too Good for You” to complete the set. I was really feeling it and the sound was just awesome. The weather was good to us despite the overcast clouds. I was a bit cold because we were right off the Hudson River on Exchange Place.

Just before going on stage, I had the chance to meet the wonderful Karen Davis. We discovered that we both had the Black Rock Coalition in common. We spent the time reminiscing over who we both knew in common in the early 90s. Karen Davis is a remarkable rocker, singer/songwriter/guitarist. She’s got a great voice, plays a mean guitar and killer boots. Go check her out sometime at or
