Hello my dear friends, I hope everything is well with you and your family. I have a little bit of this and a little bit of that for you this week. Everyone who knows me knows how I feel about our musicians in the Baltimore/Washington area. It is so important that we support all of our local musicians by going to the event and, buying tickets to see them perform. Many of our local musicians depend on the gigs they get to provide for themselves and their family to put food on their table or pay their rent. It doesn’t matter if you are a jazz, blues, R&B and gospel or soul lover of music. Just pick your favorite, call your friends and go. Remember if I mention a group, musician, singer or entertainer in my column, it is worth your buck to get a ticket and support them. Help me to help them with your support.

As you see from the pictures here in my column, there are a variety of music and live entertainment going on in the Baltimore/Washington area. I will see you there.
