New York City and Hurricane Sandy

Dear friends,

As the clean up continues in the hardest hit areas of the East Coast of the country, there are still many families without basic necessities and in desperate need. There are many Sandy Relief Drives organized through out the city to help those in need. They welcome donations such as: warm coats & sweaters, gloves, winter hats, towels, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, toothbrushes, paper towels, non perishable baby food, canned food, crackers, chips, dried fruit & nuts, diapers, flashlights, batteries, candles, waterproof shoes, gloves and pet food.

The Goodwill organization  and the Brother’s Brother Foundation  are two organizations that are distributing basic necessities to people in need. Additionally, the Red Cross is providing shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. If you want to help by giving a financial donation, please go to Red Cross. Let’s help those families that still do not have electricity and water and have suffered tremendous loss.




Poland concert

Just leaving Poland now…The concert was sold out and everything went well. The festival founder Piotr and all the people working with him were spectacular. The people I encountered were so warm and beautiful. I had learned some words in Polish to say during the show but they did not come out well, oh well…

This time, I opened the show by playing 2 songs on the guitar. A couple of days before the show Piotr had asked me to play September and Fantasia, which were not on my song list. I was hesitant at first but I decided to follow his suggestion and give it a shot. Adding them to the show was a great idea! I played September alone with the guitar and we did Fantasia with Jim and Boris. The songs came out great. I attached some pics of Gdynia and Gdansk here for you to see how gorgeous these cities in Poland are. Now Stockholm….August 5th show!  More later

Queridos amigos, el concierto en Polonia salio muy bien. El teatro estaba completamente lleno. La gente de Polonia es super linda, simpatica y de gran corazon. Me encanto cantar alli. El fundador del festival Piotr y la gente que trabaja con el son maravillosos. Siempre tuve el deseo de conocer Polonia y la verdad es que fue una experiencia increible. Al ultimo minuto, Piotr me pidio que cantara Fantasia y September. Por suerte habia pedido una guitarra y abri el show tocando September sola y luego hicimos Fantasia con Jim y Boris. Salieron muy bien. Subi unas fotos de Gdansk y Gdynia para que vean que hermosas son esas ciudades. Ahora estoy en camino a Estocolmo para mi proximo show el dia 5 de agosto en esa ciudad.


Here’s an update about the band that will be playing with me in Europe this summer: the piano player is Jim Ridl, the bass player is Boris Kozlov and the drummer is Donald Edwards. We’ve been rehearsing in NYC and it sounds incredible. These guys are great! I had played with Donald before but its the first time I am singing with Jim and Boris.
I will be sending pics and hopefully some mp3s of the concert.
I ‘m already in Europe and will be meeting the guys soon. I am excited!!!!
More later!

Queria contarles sobre los musicos de la banda que me acompanara en Europe. Jim Ridl en piano, Boris Kozlov en bajo y Donald Edwards en bateria. He trabajado mucho con Donald pero es la primera vez que lo hare con Jim y Boris. Hicimos varios ensayos en New York y la banda suena genial! Estoy feliz!
Yo estoy ya en Europa, ahora en Florencia Italia. Hace mucho calor aqui pero es hermoso estar en esta bellisima ciudad.
