Hope you're all enjoying this cool fall weather! Dr Breeze had a nice October including a show featuring our duo at the New World Landing recently for a company in Pensacola. During a break, a man who had been watching us from the window while dining at Skopelos came up and said, “I couldn't hear you because I was inside eating, but I've been watching you for a while and I can tell that you must be really good because of the way you are interacting with the audience and their reaction to you!” Wow! What a compliment! And after all my years of playing, that's a new one on me!
We also played a couple shows at senior living centers where we get a chance to play songs that we don't normally do at other gigs like standards and show tunes.
Tonight, I'll be playing solo at the Chick-fil-A in Gulf Breeze to celebrate their 5th year at this location. I promise you that a chicken sandwich never sounded so good. Please come by and give me a special request.
The holiday season is just around the corner and although we are filling our December dates with holiday parties, we still have some dates open. And we can provide arrangements which include our trio and up to a 5 piece ensemble depending on your needs and budget.
This is a great time of year to pause and reflect as the year comes to a close and the events of the past are still fresh in our minds. We enter into the holiday season with our national holiday - Thanksgiving. We count our blessings and balance our successes and our shortcomings. I see success as being with the people you want to be with – those that are supportive and bring a positive influence, those with whom you share joy and happiness. Success is living where you want to live – a place that brings comfort and excitement to your life and the lives of those around you. And finally, success is doing what you want to do – living a life a significance and making a difference in the lives of those you touch. I think that if you have that, regardless of shortcomings, you have success.
Dr Breeze is grateful to play for some of the best audiences on the gulf coast in some of the finest venues in the world.
Finally, I've been sending out my Dr Breeze eNewsletter via email for the better part of the last 15 years. Usually, it goes out on or about the 1st of every month to a list of around 800 people. Because of the popularity of social media, however, I've decided that next month's eNewsletter will be the last one sent via email. I've been posting the monthly eNewsletter on our Dr Breeze Facebook page and the News page of our website for the last couple of months and will continue to do so.
As the days get shorter and the leaves get color, may your hearts be forever warm as you all
Stay Cool!! db
