You are not gonna believe this!
April 25, 2016
You are not gonna believe this. I have been healing up from the skiing accident a year ago. Feeling stronger all the time, but still having to watch my step. Well tonight I was in line with Randy at the GigTown Switchfoot concert when they wanted everyone to move the line. Following the crowd around I stepped into a tree well, my leg bent side to side, I screamed as I fell into a group of people who thank God softened the fall. People - especially Levi Dean and others, mostly musicians - were so helpful. I even saw Ian McCartor and he should be passing out flyers now for Saturday's show! My knee - yes the one still recovering - is more swollen than it was during the skiing accident. Pretty sure the ligaments are shredded again. What luck. Looks like I'll be back to sitting during my concerts. So so frustrated. John ( J-Rod) is taking me to the Ortho surgeon tomorrow. I hope to be able to use my old crutches to do my show at Le Stat's on Thursday when I open for this great band from San Francisco called The Sugar Ponies. You know what they say ... The show must go on!
Top Ten On Reverbnation Again!
Thanks so much for getting me up again on the Top Ten at Reverbnation Singer-Songwriters!! It's fabulous to feel so supported in my artistic and musical endeavors!! Have a marvelous day and stay cool!! Hugs from Donna!! It's an honor to have reached this milestone -- 'thanks' to each and every one of you for supporting the band thus far.
Fundraiser for H2O ROCKED!
What a Great and FUN night!! Mishelle Banaga rocked it on lead guitar, Peter Bogle blew everyone's mind with his drum solo, and Lars Rasmussen slapped that bass with some pretty sick style at the Fundraiser for H20 tonight. Love my band!!! I am so happy with the band's first gig and how it was put on by Jay Seven. Thanks for having all of us!
It’s a little jazzy. Hope you like it!
Just came out of Noisy Cricket Studio. Man, that producer of mine, Steve Larsen, is a genius! We finished the mixdown of my little jazz song for the In My Own Backyard Children's Song Book and CD Set www.imobyforkids.com called "This Tiny Thing", with the Maestro, Ray Briz on keys. I'm pretty excited about this! Have a listen--it's in the playlist on the right.
