Who boy! Summer's almost over and has it ever been a moderate and wet one. However, there were a few truly hot daze. Last month my "Lemonade in the Shade" children's concert in Trenton was postponed due to the high heat index - over 100. It's coming up, in fact, THIS Thursday if by chance you live in the area. Meanwhile, I've been busy performing; birthday parties, farmer's markets, botanical gardens, and continued work on the musical film Growing Grapes for the Future ~ not to mention 15 minutes of fame in a band I was in as a mere teenager with it's reunion mini-tour.

Lammy Rillerson) have been working non-stop on their epic musical film GROWING GRAPES FOR THE FUTURE, since last summer. Here we see a candid shot from their latest video shoot, The 3D Band, performing their song WHY NOT GRAPES? "Why not?" indeed!
It's been some time since we've blabbed about our film production, GROWING GRAPE FOR THE FUTURE. Too busy shooting, editing, rewriting, and shooting more. Tons of fun this month, acting out scenes in The Dean's Office, The Vineyard (Sandhill Crane Vineyards out of Jackson), and more recently, Door to Door. The door to door scene sees Lammy Rillerson and Matilda Peppermint knocking about the neighborhood, trying to rustle up community interest ($$$) in their wild madcap vineyard idea. The ...

Today we performed at HIDDEN LAKE GARDENS, out near Tecumseh, Michigan. Though we would have prefered to play outside, as originally planned, the sprinkling rain got the best of us. No worries. We had a wonderful time, just the same. Hidden Lake Gardens is even bigger than Ann Arbor's Arboretum!
