Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming back each week. We love ya. This is our weekly gift to you. Our way of showing our deepest gratitude for your support.

Since this is our last newsletter of the year, we want to wish you and yours a VERY VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! 

And if you don’t celebrate, we wish you a wonderful holiday season!

And if it isn’t a holiday season for you, have a great rest-of-December!

Whatever your vibe, however you roll, no matter your thing, wherever you go, THANK YOU, one and all, from the boys in the band!!

Life…

Shelley Stewart

Easy??? Music is the strongest thread that binds my life, memoriespictures and people together! It is also the one medium that can make me laugh, cry, dance, feel! The endorphine rush, goose bumps, that feeling of being gut punched or the ability to make you hold your breath and not even realize it. It transcends all emotionsand can take me too so many placesor unexpectedly, yell out,”Hell ya!” Wake up humming a song and not know why or give me a spontanewous smileeven when just remembering a song!Music is the one constant joy in my lifeand has been with me since my earliest memories…a gift that I treasure!

David Foulk
