Playing the triangle is not as easy as people think! Just ask these hapless percussionists who Bernstein tries to educate in this 1989 rehearsal of Berlioz's Roméo et Juliette.

Click here to support Phreedom for Philio by Megan McGuire

Hi folks! Finally we have some good news about our friend Phil to share! He is going to released in September after spending nearly a decade in the belly of the beast for a nonviolent offense. So a few of his friends, including myself, have decided to start a fundraising effort for him. There are lots of ways you can help. You can donate to the GoFund me page until Sept and we will also be doing a few auctions over the next few months. You can bid on items online or if you have something you want to donate to it just let me know. And we all know sharing is caring, so share the link:

https://dm2.gofund.me/phreedomforphilio

Love you wonderful folks!! Thanks for supporting Phreedom for Philio!

P.S. He also appreciates kind of any snail mail -PM me for his address.

PHREEDOM FOR PHILIO It’s time for dancing in the streets! Phil is coming home! We should be able to hug him in person in Fall 2016. It’s time to show Phil our support and rally around him and give back like he always gave to us. The goal is being set at $10,000 and I think it’s ok to dream BIG...

Karia and Craig have booked tickets for Aruba and will be here for Grand Carnival
You might want to look thru my albums for better pictures
51 days before you travel is when ticket are supposed to be the cheapest ( thats like now ;-) ( though grand carnival is a big deal and harder to get cheap flights during)
I will drop down my donation fund to $100 a person for that time if we can get a gang together ( my utilities will be over $1000 that month and I make my living by singing here ( you all have heard me sing so you know I have it rough ;-)
Life is short its time to visit ;-)

From Jason

I was unable to send Christmas this year. As most of you know I was hospitalized for most of December. To anyone who would like to help me let Yeva Shambo know that her American family didn't forget about her this Christmas, I am going to post her address... She is 9, loves anything pink (size 10), art stuff like crayons, markers, paints etc... (just like her Grandpa Jimmy), and Hello Kitty to name a few things... Nothing that plugs in, since they use 220v over in RU... I am trying this as an effort so she knows that we are here and missing her... If you would like to help me, please send anything the address is:
Yeva Shambo c/o Uri Bogdanov
Telmana 44 Apt 111.
Tosnenskaya area
St-Petersburg, Russia,187032
Please no nasty-grams to Nadia... In my eyes that war is over... I just wish her well and hope she is doing the very best for Yeva... The post takes about 2 months to arrive... Thanks

In the beginning, there was Jimmy, and Jimmy had a groove.
And from this groove came the groove of all grooves.
And while one day viciously throwing down on his box, Jimmy boldly declared,
"Let there be HOUSE!"
and house music was born.
"I am, you see,
I am
the creator, and this is my house!
And, in my house there is ONLY house music.
But, I am not so selfish because once you enter my house it then becomes OUR house and OUR house music!"
And, you see, no one man owns house because house music is a universal language, spoken and understood by all.
You see, house is a feeling that no one can understand really unless you're deep into the vibe of house.
House is an uncontrollable desire to jack your body.
And, as I told you before, this is our house and our house music.
And in every house, you understand, there is a keeper.
And, in this house, the keeper is Jimmy.
Music gives you the power to jack your body!
Music gives you the power to do the snake.
Music gives you the key to the wiggly worm.
Music gives you the key to walk your body.
Music is the one thing can bring nations together under one house.
You may be black, you may be white; you may be Jew or Gentile. It don't make a difference in OUR House.
And this is fresh.

Love you forever

The Brown Street Underground Theater was one place in Akron that people felt at home. An amazing group of people were pulled into the scene - like a vortex spinning out of control... Spinning and pulsating with the sounds of harmony.

Brown Street Underground was one of those places that was the epitome of the vibes that people so desperately tried to find in life. The feeling of fulfillment and being connected to the other souls on this planet.

With the ability to not only fulfill people in the sense of being part of the family but to fulfill people in the aspect of having some of that good old fashioned gut wrenching - heart felt - straight from the depths of our soul music being made and played.

It was "the house that Dorrie built...." - but the man who made the scene come together and kept the peaceful vibes happening Friday after Friday was the incomparable Jimmy Shambo. It takes a man and a woman to create such a "child" but it truly took the whole village to raise it.

If there is something to be said about the people that came over and created the music, those people that shared their most intimate feelings of their soul expressions through music.... It should be said that they were the ones (AND YOU ALL KNOW WHO YOU ARE) that set the pace of our lives. You are the ones who gave us the beat to dance our lives to. The ones that gave us the strength to continue on and keep the faith that life is more than what it may seem - although the world may have been falling apart outside the doors and you may have only had to look as far as the street- you knew - we all knew - that we were safe behind those walls.

There is much to be said about what it all really meant... And I don't think that anyone can quite pinpoint what it really was in the big scheme of things, but I am sure that we can all agree that the man behind the curtains was sent from above to place his hand on our hearts and show us the true meaning of peace, love and good vibes. Jimmy was the magnet that pulled us together... The force behind so many people connecting on so many levels - the spider that created the web that we all got caught in.

Blessed doesn't even come close to explaining what it was that happened to us in that basement when Willy was on his acoustic, or when MoShambo was singing to us about "Taking a Load Off", or even when the night was coming to a slow bittersweet close and together we all harmonized in sync bidding each other goodnight. But I think that we can all agree that using the word "blessed" comes as close as we're gonna get.
