It's Monday. Fa La La La La La.
Our number keeps moving forward, we are more grateful that we have the capacity to articulate. Really!
But we still realize the uphill left in our journey. That's the side that we see it from, in side. We are going to put on a terrific show. We are absolute certain of that point. But, honestly, we have work to do after the show too.
We're half way there. Tell your friends, 100 of them at $50. It's just a math thing. We know that you're with us, it's your friends. You've gotta whisper in their ear(s,) this is what you can do, whisper in their ear(s.)
And let's get this done and put on a helluva show, together!

Thanks to your support we are making progress towards our goal. We call it our goal because we don't mean, "us" we do mean, "WE!"
The 2017 Blues and Roots Festival is a celebration of amazing talent, great people and a cause that resonates across demographics.
Please continue to spread the word. Every bit does help. We're asking for all of our friends to drop $10 in to the campaign. We're nearly half way there.
Thank you!

Music makes a difference your life, EVERYDAY. It's the sad song that its its arm around your shoulder and lets you know that you're not alone. It's the song that you came out of the tunnel to and onto the field when you were in college, it stills gets you pumped (now, to cut the grass...)
But it IS important. This Festival is the beginning of something new. It's also reverent to what went on for more than two decades. That's music. That's what we use it for.
Band Together Pittsburgh uses music to make a difference in the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum. And it works. Join with us, drop a double sawbuck in the till and spread the word. Let's sing, together. Thank you.....

I can't say that watching the needle move is not intoxicating. Not because it represents money, but because it definitively represents support.
It's the strong hand shake and the hand on your shoulder, the look in the eye, that says, "We're with you."
We've still got some uphill, but the reception and the encouragement flatten the climb! Thank you!!!
July 22/23 Syria Shrine Shrine Center
