What a hectic weekend this has been! It started off quite quietly on a Thursday as I played for the Richmond Hospital Foundation's Annual Garden Party.
Unfortunately, it had rained in the morning causing the party to move indoors. The turnout was great and I met some fantastic listeners! As this event wasn't a wedding, I was having lots of fun playing some jazz / big band standards with tunes like Begin the Beguine, L-O-V-E, Stardust, etc., and to my glee, a couple of charismatic old-time big band players were some of the guests and talked to me for a while about their time in the Big Bands.
I had a wonderful time and of course, it was great to play for the Richmond Hospital Foundation who recently reached their goal and bought Richmond Hospital a brand-new, top of the line, MRI machine.
