I have been on the road spreading the word about Music for HOPE and Musicjones Entertainment. I have finally landed in the new location and Home Base. My headquarters is now in Henderson Nevada, just outside Las Vegas, the entertainment capitol of the world. Been an adjustment as I left Las Vegas 11 years ago and a lot has changed in 11 years
. Looking forward to lots of new shows and new adventures. I will be posting regularly so check back for new development. Peace out
It has been a long time since my last post on this blog. It has been almost 1 year since I embarked on my latest musical adventure.
So comes to an end another week. This was a very productive and rewarding week. It started out with a performance at a local Assisted Living facility here in Chatsworth. What a great group. Then on Wedensday I was doing a radio interview on a local (Los Angeles) classic rock station promoting my non-profit “Music for HOPE”. Many thanks to a great station 100.3 “The Sound” for their support of music in our public schools. And they play great music! Life is good!
Musicjones has a new project called “Musical Memories” We are bringing live musical entertainment to residents of long term care and assisted living facilities. For information on this exciting new program please e-mail mike at email@example.com
Where would we be without the songwriters!
I just read a good but sad article from Rolling Stone on how artists are now making money in the music business. Sad part is there is only limited availability for established stars and almost no chance for upcoming artists to make money in most of these areas. There is however still hope for new artists to make money in the “new” music business. Check back for future posts for updates

It has been another hot week here in LA, its good to be home. ( I wonder if thie “Guitar Tornado” in picture was spawned by global warming?)
Some great projects in the works. Good stuff happening in Charlottesville VA with Rhyming Resources. Their first group of songs are just about ready for release, “Unforgettable learning through Music” is about to be a reality. New project from Jim Leslie and Jerry Sikorski is starting to take shape. Look for a new release from Jim and Jerry this winter. Have been spending time working on the new “Music for HOPE” chapter here in the “Valley” this week. Making some good progress recruting new volunteers here. Will be back in a few days with some updates, Stay cool out there. Later
Music can help you make it through the manic Monday. Make this one count
Another marvelous Monday here in The Valley.
