  1. Wow! Good job Mike! That Hartford show sponsored by Dunlop Pontiac – that was your family’s dealership, right?

    • My list needed a home of its own, free of the constraints of Facebook.
      Yes that was the family business, the chairman of the event approached me about support/sponsorship, which I replied “I know this great musician that would fit perfectly with the event theme ‘River of Time”, let me contact him and arrange for him to perform”.
