Message: Matt... I feel your music & I have to tell you I am not a guy to sit around n listen to tunes.... but your music moves me to tears & happiness at the same time.... I admit I do sing your songs to friends of mine & they are blown away by the words & the tune alone as I introduce them to you & show where I heard the song from.... I myself cannot STAND live music. but i would do anything to listen to you live. I first heard you on The Viinyl Cafe. Take care i'll stop here cause i will keep rambeling on

Message: Matt, I have been a huge fan since you stole the show from Stuart Mclean 4 years ago in Vancouver. I saw you perform again in North Vancouver with Del Barber and am hoping you will be venturing to the West Coast again (didn't see any B.C dates on your tour list). I am sure you have heard it all before but you put so much heart into your shows and that combined with your vocal and instrumental talents makes for one of the best concerts I have ever been to. Thank you for sharing your music with us all.

Can't believe you're playing at the Half Moon in Putney, we used to live round the corner!! Can't find a date in Dublin for my brother to attend, just want to make sure you're not playing there before I force him to fly to London for a couple of nights.

Thank you so much, without you and them other Cannucks Current Swell, my Bluesfest would not have been half as awesome.

You´re one of those "Liked, Favored, Shared" type of things, that I feel blessed to have come across in my life.

I used to live and work in Carleton County...(Hartland & Woodstock), reporting, photographing and selling ads from '79-'83 for The Observer weekly newspaper— so Perth-Andover was part of the routine. I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for future dates and venues that have you on the bill!

Thank you very a very special evening in Burlington this past Wednesday.

I was recently intrduced to your music through a friend's purchase of Coal Miner's Blues, a great CD that only hints at your great talent witnessed in Burlington. I could discern an amazing guitar, with soulful lyrics. But, at the Burlington show, solo, accoustic, commanding, it was clear taht amazing is such an inappropriate word.....

I would like to keep you as my new little secret, but I suspect that Matt Andersen will soon become a household word to Blues lovers everywhere.

Message: Hello Matt!
I am so thankful for your soulful performances at MusicFest yesterday. Having listened to your albums for a few years now, it was such an absolute pleasure to finally get to see you play live... I could hardly wipe the tears from my eyes or the smile from my face =) I think I will always remember that warm glowing evening, shared with the best of family and friends (and a couple of hundred happy strangers too!) every one of us enthralled and engaged with the music you were playing. Thanks again for asking us to sing along with you! I had so much fun =) It was so beautiful.
I was taken by (pleasant, and bittersweet) surprise by the song Coal Mining Blues. Coal Mining has a sorrowful and rooted young history in the Comox Valley. Many people who live here are the sons and daughters of loggers and miners. There is heavy debate amongst the members of this community about the planned locations of a few new coal mines to be dug into the hills above our homes in the coming years. To hear your perspective about these brave workers was both timely and welcome - though it nearly broke my heart.
Anyways, sorry for the digression there... just thanks really, that's all =)
May you always keep good company,

Message: Saw this gig advertised at the Musician in Leicester for last night so real short notice decision to attend.

My man, you were nothing short of awesome, how do you manage to sing like that and play the guitar - it's so unfair.

Both my wife and I agreed it's the best £7.00 we've ever spent on a gig without knowing what any of the material was like.

We only heard Coalminer Blues on Monday on Facebook and that made our minds up to go.

By the way they were really unexpectedly great versions of James Taylor's 'Steamroller Blues' (complete with the Cookie Monster!) and Springsteen's 'I'm On Fire' you played.

Please come back and rock Leicester again real soon.

In the meantime I'm going to buy me some more of your albums.

Good luck with the rest of the tour.

Best regards,

Message: Hi Matt!

I have listened to you several times on the Vinyl Cafe and then bought some of your music. Your one of my favourite musicians. Listening the last time to your interpretation of "Silent Night" was just amazing. I could not imagine that this song will ever be like a new adventure because of course I heard it probably a thousand time. Thank you for that magic moment.
Last but not least, as I am living in Austria, any chances you make it to Vienna or somewhere close by?
Thank you for your music.

Message: Hey Matt. Just got home from your awesome concert at the Centennial in North Van. You were amazing and tell Del we thought he was a perfect match for you - opposites attract? You were in top form and my friends with me had never seen you before - count 2 more fans in B.C. Your heart and soul just comes out in your music I had tears in my ears when you sang your new song about your parents relationship - reminded me of my parents too. On the drive home I realized I haven't felt this good since I saw you at the Burnaby Music Fest. If you ever consider doing another Christmas CD I'd love to hear you sing "Scarlet Ribbons" I loved "Little toy trains" on your Xmas 2010.
Thanks Matt for the wonderful gift of your music and enthusiasm, I had the time of my life tonight.
Love ya - Noreen

Saw you tonight and gave you our praise when we got your signature on the CD we bought. What I forgot to tell you was this: we gave you a standing ovation several times there in the Centennial Auditorium.... but perhaps you were too shy... because you put your head down and rushed off the stage. Matt, the audience loved you... and Del too. Please, stop when we do that, look up at us and let us shower you with the LOVE... OK? You deserve it... and, maybe it might even feel good. Grateful, Donna

I told you I was going to start to work on that. I would like you to know that I have begun that process. I have emailed several promotors and gushed and raved and slightly begged and I'm hoping that at least one or all of them is smart enough to get you here soon. I have seen you perform several times starting with the Vancouver Island Musicfest and have introduced several friends to your amazing music. I can't wait to introduce even more people when you come to Nanaimo. Thanks again for the outstanding show in Duncan.

Message: Dear Matt,
I would like to share with you a story very close to my heart. About a month ago I moved in with my close friend Casey. I was in a time of need and Casey opened up his couch to me and we had a wonderful time together. We both love music. We both have very eclectic tastes. On nights after work we would walk down to a bar near his apartment, have a couple beers, walk back, and share music together. Some of the best times I've ever had were shared with Casey in that living room sharing songs back and forth. On June 28th, Casey and I did our normal routine. Back at the apartment we started playing songs around midnight. Time went by; it almost seemed to fly. We shared everything from classic rock to old school rap to classic country, folk, and blues. If there was one thing Casey LOVED, it was Bob Dylan. I told him, "I got one for you; it's a cover... guess who wrote it." I played him your version of Wagon Wheel; he loved it. I finally found something Dylan wrote that he hadn't already heard! The next thing we knew, it was 4 AM. I had a 7 AM flight to go visit my family the next morning, so we decided it was time to get an hour or so of sleep before having to leave. Before we went to bed I played him one more song. It was your cover of I Shall Be Released. He absolutely loved it. We sat there in the living room, sang every word along with you, and I quietly strummed along. A few hours later he dropped me off at the airport. I said, "Thanks buddy; I'll see you in a couple weeks." That was the last time I saw Casey alive. Casey died tragically on July 5th, in the living room where we sat and listened to you just a week before. It was less than 3 weeks before his 25th birthday. My life has forever been changed. I watched one of my closest friends lowered into the ground today. Thoughts and memories filled my head. We had so many good times together, but one of the times that stuck out in my head most was sitting on the couch with him singing along with you. He was loved by so many. He was the first to make everyone laugh, the first to help anyone in need, and the first to turn on the music wherever we happened to be. There is a part of me that was lost and can never be replaced; luckily I have all the memories of the great times we shared together. If at all possible, the next time you play I Shall Be Released live could you please dedicate it to Casey Dane Yates? He shared with all of us happiness and joy through his humor and music, just as you have touched us with your talents. Thank you for being a part of my final memory with Casey. I will never forget that night. He will forever live inside of us. Thank you again Matt, you brought my good friend Casey joy; I could never thank you enough for that. Sincerely,
Kenny Hutto

Thank you for the best live performance I have ever experienced, Your bass player was so good , he was never off, you guys were so in sync. Have fun , love the Blues, and love the Ladies, I will see you for sure in the fall at the Indian River show. I hope to get better on my Hohners and hearing you has given me inspiration.

Just saw you play for the first time tonight at Massey Hall, opening for Buddy Guy. Wow. You have such a GIFT! I really enjoyed the show. Your voice has an amazing range, the passion of Janis Joplin, the raspiness of Jeff Healey, and so much more that I cannot compare it to anyone. I was totally blown away. Your playing was something else. I said on the way to the show that I really wish SRV and Jeff Healey were still around, two of my all-time favourites. Hearing you filled a big gap in my musical soul this evening. I love the CD I bought, and listened to it all the way home. Love it. And thanks for taking the time to sign it. I cannot wait to hear you again. I will be buying your CDs as gifts for everyone I know...they all have to hear you!! Keep up the great music! Thanks for sharing your gift to the world! SRV would be so proud of you! : )

I know, probably a crazy request ... any chance of you coming down? Fell in love with your music at the Vancouver Folk Fest a couple years ago - listen to your CDs regularly since then. It would be amazing to hear you live again (btw - I have friends in Scotland where you are touring - I am going to let them know that they CAN'T miss your show). Hopefully catch your show again soon!

Message: Stumbled upon you singing Springstein's I'm On Fire. I must say, I was not expecting much at all. I was pleasantly suprised.
I then clicked on a youtube of your verson of Bill Withers Ain't No Sunshine.

Let me just say that Ain't No Sunshine is one of the songs that should only be sung by Bill Withers. Nobody can sing that song better than he did.

Or so I thought.
I had low expectations, but my jaw soon hit the floor.
BETTER than Mr. Withers version. Bravo good sir, I say bravo!!
Absolutely spectacular voice.
I look forward to seeing your name in the Carolinas.

Message: Hey, Matt. I first say you at the Bo Soliel (awful spelling; don't know a lick of French) Festival in Yarmouth, NS in the summer of 2006. We were about to leave because the bands were on the down turn, but a local DJ convinced us to stay for you. Sure glad we did. I was blown away. We came back to see you Sunday of the festival and it was even better than the first show (which I thought was impossible). I had the pleasure of seeing you once more with JP Cormier at the Yarc in Yarmouth a few months later. I'm originally from the States, but I lived in NS for a couple years. I met you at the first show in Yarmouth and I was amazed at your kindness towards all your fans. So I went home, listened to the CDs daily and haven't stopped since (I actually listened to all of "Solo at Sessions" and part of "Live at Liberty House") last night. I've made it my mission to get the word out about your talents as far as I can possibly reach. I moved back to the States in 2007 and have been here since. I'd just like to you know that I have turned probably hundreds of people on to your music. I've influenced many of my friends from New Hampshire, to Ohio, Indiana, Florida, New Mexico, and now I'm in Texas still saying, "Oh man, you gotta hear this guy!" You've been a huge inspiration to me and my music and I could never thank you enough for that. I miss seeing you play dearly (I haven't been able to make it back for a visit to catch a concert since I moved). I love that you're getting more recognition now, and I just wanted to you know that I'm doing my part to help. So I guess what I'm trying to say is... Come do more shows in the States! Take care, man. Just know that you have a growing army of fans in the south!

Message: Dear Mr. Andersen,

(Yes okay, a tad formal perhaps, but I believe you deserve the utmost respect).

Thank you for blowing my mind, rocking my world, and totally making my Hillside Festival in Guelph this year.

Sadly, I hadn't heard of you before this weekend (totally my loss), but with one performance you've become of one my all time favourite performers. Your stage presence is nothing short of captivating, your lyrics are beautiful and universally understood, and you can sure rock the hell out of a guitar.

While "younger" bands seem to growing to sizes upwards of 10 or 12 people (or more), and having whole horn sections, or using synthesizers and computer programming to completely run their shows, I absolutely adore the fact that a single man, with nothing but a guitar and chair can completely captivate an entire audience, get 3 standing ovations, and demand an encore like you did last night at Hillside.

Simply put, I'm better off for having seen you, and for your music becoming part of my life. Thank you for the honour.

Wishing you the best of luck with a career that will surely continue to grow to ultimate heights.

Message: I work full-time have a two year old daughter and a husband who works seven days a week so my weekends are usually spent driving around getting things done. During this time I always leave on an obscure radio station in hopes of hearing something that isn't mainstream, something that actually has some soul to it. Well, I was scanning away when I came across this voice and I had to keep it there. The more and more I listened the more I loved it. Finally, I pulled over, got out one of my daughters crayons from under the seat and an old piece of mail and starting writing down the lyrics feverishly, in hopes of googling them later to find out who this person was. At the end of the song thank-fully the radio D.J told me your name and the album and as soon as I got home I googled you and sent utube video's of you to my Dad (who also shares my love of music). Dad spent the rest of the day finding more and more great songs by you on utube and for the next month I listened to you everyday at work at home, all on utube. I couldn't believe my luck when I went on to your website and seen you were coming here to Calgary to play at the Knox! As someone who never usually gets out it was funny how quickly I bought those tickets, told my husband to take the night off and count the days till you came. Well, I have to say, you did not let us down. Your show literally brought me to tears. I've been listening to your C.D's which I bought at the show everyday and am even hoping to have "How I wish" as the song my sister and Dad dance to at her wedding. (If that's okay with you:-) Anyway, please just keep doing what you're doing. You have a gift, a gift to make people feel in a world that can be devoid of feeling. Oh and Will was also pure genius, it amazes me what people are capable of, keeps me postive for good changes. We bought his C.D. too. Thank-you, I hope I'll be seeing you again soon.

Message: Matt,

I've been listening to you play since I was wandering the halls of our high school and you would be in the music room non stop. I would stop and listen until a teacher would come and tell me to go back to class or bell rang and would also fight every Thursday night to get a seat at Kelly's Place when I could be there. I meant to go to bed at a decent hour tonight but found myself listening to every song I could find of yours on the net for over 3hrs. Reading the comments in this guest book and on all the other videos it only confirms what I already knew that you are truly one of the greatest talents the world has yet to completely realize. And I feel sad for those who have yet to make this same discovery. Keep it up as long as you love it because its that love that people are sending back your way in all the words that they can summon. Though it is hard to define something as awesome as your skills. Can't wait for the next time I can see you play. Maybe the summer party. Hint, Hint.

Every time I listen to your song "when my angel gets the blues" I sob, great heaving ones, and a part of me is healed. Then I laugh out loud at the end, knowing i've been heard.

You have painted a picture of my life as seen from the other side, and I know, in the place where words fail me, that I, will in fact be ok.

Giving up, is where life begins.

Message: Hi Matt,
today arrived your CD "Piggyback" and what can I say: I hear a lot of blues and songwriter stuff and this CD is unique. It is a great mixture of new harmonica sounds by Mike Stevens - who I only know as the fastest bluegrass harmonica player in the world - and here he give us the dirt. On the other side your voice, I can hear the soul of Marc Cohn & Chris Jones.
BTW: some friends of mine will be in Memphis in january, too. Gerd Gorke is a singer and harmonica player in the trio "Hootin` the Blues". When you see them say "Hello" to them.
Greetings from Münster/germany

I also enjoyed the Vinyl Cafe show in London on the 15th. I bought your CD during the intermission in hopes that you would be around afterward to sign it and you didn't disappoint.

You have a gift...a truly amazing voice and touching songs. Thanks for treating us all! Best of luck in all your deserved success and I'll see you back here in March.

I had asked if you were on Twitter after the mentioned that you were but I have yet to find you. If you can, will you fire off your username to my email? Would love to follow your updates.

All the best and happy holidays.

Warmest wishes to you during this festive season. I hope you find some quiet, relaxing time after your busy schedule.
I treated my family to see Stuart McLean at the Royal Theatre in Victoria on December 1.2009
When you sang Holy Night, we all cried, I saw men in the audience crying, I saw people hooting and cheering and leaping to their feet to honour your talent.....
You are a national treasure.
What an honour to hear your voice and thanks to Stuart for bringing you along.
Happy New Year 2010 - all good things to you.
Thank you.

Message: Matt,
You have made me an even prouder Canadian after hearing you pour your emotions through your guitar and with your voice at the Vinyl Cafe's annual Christmas concert with Stuart McLean in London, Ont., on Dec. 15.
You calmed my nerves, shortly after the show, I proposed to my (now fiancee) girlfriend. I was so excited after your opening number that I leapt to my feet and applauded. I was not alone - probably 20 or 30 people got to their feet on the main level of Centennial Hall to give you a warm cheer. I have only done that once with an opening act before after I saw Naturally 7 open for Blue Man Group in London a couple of years ago.
You could easily be the best hidden secret in the Canadian music industry. The fact that you overshadowed another amazing Canadian musician (Jill Barber) and equalled the thrill of seeing the talented and entertaining Stuart McLean, whom I have grown to love and respect as a journalist and entertainer over the years, speaks volumes to what you can do to an audience.
You are all about the music, which is a refreshing change, and your smooth skill on the acoustic guitar, soulful voice, and great crescendos made for a memorable experience.
I will be buying your CD and I will be at your show in Centennial Hall.
Simply amazing and I wish you the very best on what promises to be a long, successful career in music.
Merry Christmas, and best wishes for great success in the decade ahead.
Andy Watson
Proudly Canadian

You are a phenomenal talent and we will surely be sitting front row for your March 7th trip back to Centennial Hall. As guitarists ourselves, we were impressed at your skill on the instrument, not knowing what to expect out of it and you definitely blew us away with your vocal capacity.

You ought ot consider touring with an accoustic ensemble like the one you had on stage. Seriously. Incredible sound.

Either way, however you get around, can't wait till you come back to Calgary for a full show.

Your new CD is different from your other two and shows a much different side of you. Everyone needs to spread their wings and although you are wonderful on your own you have shown us you are willing to collaborate with others - Mike Stevens was a good choice. Thanks to you and Mike for taking the time to sign CDs and have a chat with us all after the show. I love Devil's Bride. I will be off to hear you again at the Pearl Theatre on the 16th; I could listen to your voice and your guitar any time - I am truly amazed at how someone as young as you has grown in talent so quickly. We 50+ fans are in awe each time you play. All the best in the UK and Scotland.

Message: Hey Matt, the show at the Cohn was really solid, but I still think that you are better off on your own. To date, your best album has been Solo at Sessions and you bring enough energy and presence to the stage to be a one man show. You would have sold out the Cohn if it was just you! It'd be nice to see some more shows of just you rockin out, my man. Mike is quite a harmonica player, but you are still much better on your own I think. When you were out there on your own, before Mike came out, I was totally focused and enjoying the show. When Mike came out and started playing with you, it was great, but nothing compared to just you. Think about it.

Just checking out your lastest album and had to comment on the fact that you still hold that spot in my lifes book of #1 favorite musicians/singers/songwriters/performers.
From the first time I witnessed your talent at the Beaver Dam Pub 7/8 years ago you captured a part of my soul. I've have seen you perform at least 50 times and if you remember, I am always in the front row (if there is room).
My dream is to one day play rythem for you on Free Bird at a show. Like old times.
You should put that shit on an album soon! I remember people screaming FREEEE BIRRRRRD!!! After every song, i'm sure you still get that.

Hey, Saw Fest, Slave Lake AB, next year, make it happen. Great town, big budget festival, this year was Matt Mays, Sam Roberts, Shawn Kingston, and others but not a stubby finger to be seen or heard.

Drop me a line sometime, i'll do what I can to make it to a show next time we are within 500 K from each other.
Cheers Matt, and keep up on the mind blowing of the listeners.

While I'm at it ,Thanks for inviting Natasha to join you on stage at the saturday eve. jam.
I got quite a few folks tell me how it was nice of you to get her up,even though she didn't really know what to play.Never know ,might give her the urge to work on blues material.
If I can get your E-Mail .i will send you a few photos.

It's great when one has the chance to see a talented Blues musician play their music.

You brought a very special life to the songs you played. We would be delighted to have you as the only performer in an evening!!

Just had the privilege of experiencing your live performance in Cochrane on Saturday night. Wow! Was really excited to see David Gogo, as I saw him about 15 years ago in Vancouver, however, I was really wishing that you had been the headliner. Your style of playing is something I've never seen nor heard before and what a treat. You are a captivating performer. Really hoping that you'll come back and play a two (three, four, five??) hour set for us. At the very least, come to a 'kitchen party'! Also wanted to know where I can get your cds.
Thanks for the great evening...telling everyone I know about you with the hopes that they'll get to be treated to your gift of music.
Many thanks again...

Just saw your opener tonight for David Gogo in Cochrane. I have to say, while David played really solidly, his traditional take on the blues just didn't strike a chord after hearing how you have stretched the genre. I haven't had so much fun listening to a live performance in a long time. Hearing the dynamic, rhythmic, and tonal variety in both your singing and playing was amazing. The joy you exhibited in playing for us was a delight. Your ballads were moving and your up-tempo stuff had me grinning from ear to ear. Very innovative!
Thanks for a great show and best of luck to you as you continue to bring new life to this music.

I saw you play at the Dream Cafe in Penticton last week and I can only say, "Wow!" Your music was incredible and one song you played actually brought me to tears - I wish I could remember the name, only that it was by, I believe, Stan (last name unknown). Would love to hear you record this! Who was it, by the way??

Message: Let me start off by saying that I (normally) do not like blues, jazz, or country music of any kind. All three have been known to make my skin crawl and in general, I think the three genres are a last resort for would-be musicians who have no talent.

HOWEVER...I went to Salty Jam in Saint John this summer to see Ruthie Foster play. I had never even heard of you before but the woman beside me, a complete and total stranger, kept on raving about you and how good you were. "Matt's sooo good; wait until you see our Matt. You'll be blown away." took hold of the stage and I was! I have NEVER seen such an incredible live performance before, even by my favourite musicians and the outrageous local talents. I was thoroughly impressed, and that is a hard thing for anyone to accomplish, especially for a local blues musician from New Brunswick! I immediately bought your Solo at Sessions CD (and am now kicking myself for not buying more) and find myself hungry for more. Your voice and the way you play acoustic guitar is just mind-blowing. You sing with the soul of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen and deliver with the power of Andrea Bocelli and Luciano Pavarotti, an interesting and strangely enigmatic combination. You are truly a rare talent. I wish there was some way to get a copy of the Salty Jam performance because, while the Solo CD is good, the live performance this summer was the most intense one anyone could ever experience (nearly orgasmic).

Please, please, please come back to Saint John soon! You have many fans here, both new and old. The Port City loves you and anxiously awaits your return!

I myself play guitar and your amazing style and stage presence has made me want to pursue a career in the music business. Thanks for the Friday afternoon off man.

Sorry I missed you over ECMA weekend- seems I always run into you! Hear you'll be heading this way soon. Had a great fall with the release of my album "State of Mind" and have been doing some gigging- being a full time teacher here keeps me pretty occupied. Anyways, i wonder if you'd

I heard you sing and play one time at the Board Walk in Sydney last summer during the "Rock the Dock" weekend and since then I've been trying to see you again. I love your music, what really got me was when you were singing "and I know, I know, I know, I know...." one of my favorite songs "Ain't no sunshine" and you blew the system, I saw blue sparks fly from the transformer on the street directly behind the stage and you kept on singing, you have such a powerful voice you didn't need the microphone. You gave me the chills!
I can't wait to hear you again, and I will see you when you play in MB2 on March 17. Keep up the great work!

Message: Hi Matt. Saw your show with Charlie in St. Albert last Friday & it was excellent. Really loved your voice & superb guitar playing. Bought your CD (Solo at Sessions) & when we got home that night, listened to it, & were disappointed that it wasn't as good as your show. I've since been listening to it and tonight have listened to it 3 times through I've been enjoying it so much. The CD really is great, but it brings home just how much you've improved since the CD! The concert showed a more gravelly, mature voice, and the passion & feeling you put in to the songs was incredible. I'm so glad you came out West and I can't wait to hear your new album. Is there any way to be notified when it comes out, or when you're next in the Edmonton area, the sooner the better? I'd love to catch you again - what about the Folk Fest? I think it would be a great venue for you! Thanks for coming.

I had the pleasure of seeing you performance at Strathspey Place in Mabou last night. I have to apologize as you have planned in around Port Hawkesbury to Inverness and I never made the attempt to go hear you even though people in Creignish said you were great. I must say great doesn't explain your talent. I was mesmerized by your talent and voice and what a way to enjoy an evening stress free. Though J P Cormier is talented as well, I believe you stole the show with your talent. Minglewood can see "Can't you see" but you perfected it last night. All the best on your tour and believe you me the next time you are playing in Creignish , Judique or Port Hood, or the surrounding areas, I will be there. I had my teenage daughter with me and she is being to perform on stage both with vocals and guitar, and she was just as glad to have heard you play and will inspire her to continue on.

Here's the story...There were four of us girls out after the Nike Women's Marathon, Sunday night in San Francisco. We went to Biscuits & Blues for some post dinner entertainment. Yvonne had been there before, so the rest of us were down with it. Teri opened for you, and rocked the house. She drew attention to the timid one in the bunch, our friend Debbie, with soulful rendition of mistaken identity, and carefully weaved it into the rest of her show. Verity had to deal with a couple of drunk, clapping, fools immediately to her right. Leaving (and not a minute to soon!), Verity was once again relaxed, and enjoying the rest of the show. You returned to the stage to play with Teri, and, wow!...that truly showcased your musical talent. There's nothing more hypnotic than watching musical chemistry in action. After Teri packed up, you closed the house down with your soulful voice and talented fingers flying across the fretboard. You made our night...we'll be looking for you around the bend!Thanks for your autograph and the memories!
