I had a great time playing at the reunion on Sunday. There was a big crowd of people there and everyone really enjoyed it.
I had my brand new CD, Danbury Days available for sale and sold quite a few copies. It will be available for sale at gigs and online retailers in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more information.
One of the highlights of the reunion was receiving an official citation from the Connecticut General Assembly for the songs I have written and recorded that pay tribute to city of Danbury, CT. It was presented to me by State Senator Michael McLachlan, Below is the text from the offical citation:
