A Sailor's Life for Me! 

I'm currently out at sea playing and singing in the piano bar on Carnival Vista!  It has been an absolutely wonderful experience full of music, fun, great people, and worldly adventure!  The places that I've visited on board the Carnival ships include Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Grand Turk,Mexico, Honduras, Belize, and the Bahamas.  It's been historically and culturally educational.  One of my favorite experiences was visiting Bob Marley's home and playing the family piano!  Watch my instagram: @mzrags for more pics and updates!

Holiday Highlights and Cancer Kids & Christmas 

One of the highlights for me this holiday season has been being part of the Cancer Kids & Christmas event back in my hometown.  This big fundraising event was all organized by Travis Sparks who, himself, was threatened by cancer, and was then inspired to help others affected by this horrible disease, especially during the holiday season.  Being in this hometown atmosphere and seeing people come together to help each other was so uplifting, and a reminder of how we all should strive to help others year-round!  It was a humbling experience, and I am thankful.

 

Album Release Party and Thank you! 

I want to thank all of you who came out to the "Whimsical Romance" Album Release Party over the weekend in Baltimore.  Germano's Piattini was just the perfect place to have this celebration with wonderful and supportive people!  I cannot wait to be back in the area for another get-together with all of you!  Thanks to Lynne from Bluebook Photography for capturing these special moments with her lens!

Lakefest...Oh and...We're Just Getting Started... 

Just reminiscing and putting some images together from The Columbia Festival of the Arts LakeFest in Columbia, MD! It was so awesome to be part of such an incredible lineup! The day was hot but fun! Thanks to John Maloney GEMPhoto.zenfolio.com for providing some pics and AHT Productions for putting together this video as well! It was fun to see old friends and make new ones!

This Sunday (June 18) at 1pm join me at the Columbia Lakefront for LakeFest!  I'll be playing an acoustic preview of my upcoming album Whimsical Romance with the beautiful Lake Kittamaqundi in the background!  

It means so much to me to be back in Columbia, MD, a wonderful community that has been so incredibly supportive of my musical endeavors.  I have met so many wonderful friends there and lasting relationships.  This is truly a beautiful, diverse, and encouraging community that I have been blessed to get to know.

See you there at LakeFest!
