Well, we're getting closer and closer to the release of my new CD "The Stage". At 6:30 PM on September 4th at the Mirror Lake Lyceum the John Kelly Band will be hosting a night of celebration with special guest Steve Arvey. It's going to be a great night of music and an experience we hope you won't soon forget.
This project has been in the works for three years now and I'm just thrilled to say it's finally complete. The band and I have been hard at work preparing for this night and we have a lot of people to thank.
The moment I mentioned to our family and friends what we were planning, they jumped at the chance to help. I'd like to personally thank Dr. Robert D. Rehnke MD, The Moon Under Water, Cordes, Patranella & Winkler Pediatrics, Bowled Restaurant, Shackleton's Folly Bar and Grille, Calverhall Inc. and Technikelly Kreative for their sponsorship. Rob and Tammy, Mark and Donna, Joe and Sally, Michael, Dan, Chris and Diane, my sister and brother in-law Shawn and Jason, Geni Poole and of course you Nicole, thank you so much for helping with this project and event. I couldn't have done this without all your help. The Stage is about family and friends and recognizing them for who they are and what they do and I want you to know that I certainly recognize all of you for the help you've provided, your continued support and for being great friends and loved family. Thank You!
Creating music for me now is more about bringing people together than chasing down a big dream of what I used to call "making it". Now I still hope that these songs will one day provide a bit more for my family than they currently do but I'm in it for something different these days. Those of you who know me well enough know how I love to host a good party. Cooking food, drinking great wine, listening to great music and seeing my family and friends having a good time in my home (and Studio), that's what it's all about for me. So consider this event... a celebration? Yes! Of a project I'm very proud of but more importantly, a chance to thank many and another opportunity to get a bunch of people together and hopefully experience something special.
So I do hope you'll join us on Thursday September 4th. I know we're going to have a great time and we're looking forward to seeing you!!!
