So that's an update other than I cannot wait to record all my new songs (after I move and get settled again in Orange County). I have enough material for my 2nd and 3rd album not to mention my six programs: "Animals Are Happy" and "My Mama's Kitchen" (a version of each for preschoolers, children K-6 and families). Check out my upcoming Ranger Jack gig at the Corona Public library's family night this coming March 19th at 7pm.11-29-12 - I'm performing tonight at Kulak's Woodshed 5230 Laurel Canyon Boulevard N. Hollywood, CA 91607 from 9:30-10pm. Come see the show or check it out via live web-cast. Go to www.kulakswoodshed.com. I've decided this time to play all piano and keyboard songs: "Animals Do Most Anything", "A Is For Aardvark", "Are You Sleeping", "Brave Bunny", "Bark Bark Bark", "Ballroom Baboons", "Emily's Song" and "Animals Eat Most Anything".
11-24-12 - Still in the midst of finally putting videos of my past performances on line. Plus I created a new one in my living room especially for libraries. I even missed Thanksgiving. But no worries, I am now ready for post-production and final editing which I can do with my family in San Diego. They saved me leftovers.
11-15-12 - Just returned from my vacation: five nights at the Westin LAX where I attended my third TAXI Music Rally. It was an amazing experience. I learned much about the music industry, performed some new kid songs three nights in a row, and on Monday and Tuesday, by the pool, I wrote two new songs. Thank you TAXI
11-7-12 - Completed the recording of new K-6 children's song about the planets. Drummer/producer and roommate Kyle was a huge help. I plan to play play it for my taxi-music mentors and perform it live at open mic.
02-01-13: The last two months have been a great ride. So busy! Yesterday was my 2nd library showcase in January and it went fantastic. I've was hired as Ranger Jack for the Corona, Anaheim and Torrence Public libraries for 2013 and was approached by more than a dozen more libraries enthusiastically asking for my flyers and prices, from LA County to the Inland Empire, to Orange County (especially) and even San Diego. So like one of my new songs goes: "Ranger Jack's Back". (Besides the fact that I must move in the next 30 days--arrrrhhr LOL). Also, I am now officially hired by Jules of Jules Children's Music to be his number two for teaching pre-shool thru kindergarden at schools throughout orange county. For this the kids are already getting to know me as "Mr. Jack". I just sat in on 5 classes and performed a song per class. The kids are apparently now asking Jules if I will be back. He said yes! : ) For now, I will sub and take on new accounts. Eventually he plans to only over-see and I may someday take over all Jules/OC school accounts and private parties.
