On December 8, 2013 myself, 14 Sensitive Dudes and several business got together to do a show at Telefunken Studios in South Windsor, CT. To say that we had an amazing time is an understatement. I wanted to take this time to thank everyone that was involved. I am going to give shout outs…so here we go – in no particular order
Dori Gatter – You took 100 moving pieces and made it all collapse into place. Thank you for being one of my best friends and rock. You truly are my sister, and I love you so!
Lenny Hasemann, Christopher Moran, Tony Colapietro, Mike and Mathieu Jean – You guys lit it up, gave us all your talent, made the place brighter with your art, and created a vibe that set a new standard. I wish I had bigger words than thank you. Your kindness and grace makes me teary in a good way.
Tony Caporale of TwinBear Management and Chris Kuehn of Golden Corral – Your love, kindness and support of me is never-ending, and I am consistently floored by your generosity. I am so thankful for our friendships and look forward to a long road of making music, meaningful craftiness, and just good old fashioned solid camaraderie from both of you. You both are truly the best.
Holly Fisher – You rock from all the way across the pond. Thank you so much for all of your artwork and patience. You are the best graphic artist I know, and I would not want to collaborate with anyone else. Thank you so much for your delightful sense of humor and for lending me your talents every day. The rest of the world needs to know who you are!
Alan Veniskofsky and everyone at Telefunken – What can I say? All of you knocked it out of the park. I honestly don’t think you even have the word “no” in your vocabularies. Your talents and sweetness is so greatly appreciated. Thank you for making my vision come to life. Can’t wait to do another one!
Peter Solak – Thank you so much for dropping off and picking up the QSC speakers. The room sounded amazing – I just wish you could have been there. You are so kind to have helped us with the live sound.
Chip Fenney – Thank you for being my swiss army knife of human beings. You are always there for me, and I am proud to call you my brother and friend. You are always so patient and you always make it come together. Not to mention you are a bad to the bone musician. So much love!
Lee Sylvestre – My little Amex – don’t leave home without it. Thank you for helping me sort out all the dudes. It was no small job, and you handled it with grace and ease – no big surprise. You are always my voice of reason and patience. Thank you for being my brother – and for understanding my crazy head
Alan Friedman - Every day I thank you. It’s never enough. The words pale for the gratitude I have. You truly are a rock and a safety net. All of my crazy ideas and adventures seem to work out with your help. Thank you for being such a good friend and person to me. I am like your daily mitzva – GOD help you
J. Rene Coffee Roasters, Bogle Wine, Get Baked, Back East Brewery – Thank you for supplying your local art in the form of coffee, wine, baked goods and beer. Your eats, treats and drinks made the night that much more special. Music and yummy stuff always make for a great combo. I will continue to tell everyone about all of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Sharon Hennessy of OnStage Stands - You are always so supportive of me. Thank you for being such a great friend and such a solid human being in such a crazy industry. I hold you and your company in the highest of regards, and I am not shy about saying so. Thank you for all the love.
Chris Blum – Thank you for being such a good sport, and for being the hottest and most fit bar tender any girl could ask for. You rock!
Paul Lombardo, Patrick McAloon, Jonathan Mover, Robbie LaBlanc, Michael Cleary, Jon Corvo, Ed Corvo, Donny Fortin, Dennis Fancher, Jay Wiggin Scott Wattel, Matt Glasser and Billy Megofna - You guys all rocked it in your own very sensitive way. Thank you for playing music with me, for being my brothers, and for being so very cool. I am deeply inspired by all of you. It was so amazing to share the night with all of you. Looking forward to the second annual one next year!
We recorded and filmed the evening. We will be sharing content as soon as we get it all together. Thank you to everyone who attended the show in person as well as on line. My life is enriched, and I am lucky girl.
