Hello Good People!
Can you believe we are nearing the end of August? In some ways it seems this year is flying by and in other ways it isn't. I'm grateful for another year and for every small blessing. God is good!

Concerts This Weekend:
We've got some really great events coming up this weekend. You won't want to miss them!
Siloam Springs Summer Concert Series
FRIDAY AUGUST 25th
The party begins at 4PM with 50 different food vendors and Dog Day events. So, bring your favorite pup. There will be live music that begins at 4PM as well. We go on at 6:30PM. This will be a BIG TIME!
As you all know, last year we celebrated our 10 year Blues Therapy Anniversary at The Fayetteville Public Library. It was a hit and exceeded our expectations. We ran out of food in 20 min! Some of you may also know that just about every month during the year we celebrate someone's birthday at our weekly event and I sing the highly requested birthday song. Then, in December we celebrate my birthday along with Kevin's and Chris's birthday (we have our b-day's all in the same week.)
Well, this year we are going to combine the Blues Therapy Birthday Bash with an Annual Blues Therapy Celebration because not only are our birthdays in December, but Blues Therapy will be 11 years old this December as well.
The event will be held at George's Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville AR on Dec 20th. There will be Food available for purchase and a Holiday dress competition. Wear your most beautiful holiday dress or come as a Christmas tree… get creative.
And of course what would Blues Therapy be without special guest so, for my Birthday……..drum roll please… first our good friend Vince Turner will be joining us and second…. I will be bringing in my good friends “Fonkey Donkey” from Little Rock to share their Fonkey Delta Style Blues with all of you! Your going to LOVE THEM! Not only are they fonkey but they are some of my favorite folks under the sun and I can't wait to also share all of you with them. It's going to be a FONKEY GOOD TIME!!
GET YOUR TICKETS NOW I BELIEVE TABLES WILL GO FAST!
HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!
God bless you and yours!
Hello Good People!
I hope this newsletter finds everyone well. It's been sometime since I've sent our last newsletter due to life. Please remember that you can always check the website for upcoming dates at www.BrickFieldsMusic.com
In this letter I'm going to share a new video with you that we all recorded on "Fayettetunes" at Fayetteville Public Televison as well as some upcoming show dates, special events and Summer Festivals and Concerts.
We were honored to be guests on Fayettetunes this past week where we shared four songs. Two Brick Fields Classics ("On The Vine" and "Talk About The Weather") and Two Brand New Songs ("Anyhow and Sofia").
I've been doing quite a bit of songwriting lately and we've been collaborating as a band to create some beautiful compositions. I'm excited to share some of them with you in the near future. Chris has also brought a new song to the table. If you are ever at our Wednesday night blues therapy sessions, then there's a chance you are hearing these songs in the works.
So far we've released "Put Your Armor On" and "Something In The Water". Now you can hear "Anyhow" and "Sofia" on this video. Please enjoy and share the link through email or social media with your friends. Here's the link:
April 29th Eureka Springs, AR "Feast With The Beast" @ Turpentine Creek

Hello Good People
As July comes to an end we hope you're enjoying this hotter than hades weather..... swoosh. My chickens are panting and getting lots of watermelon and frozen berries to help cool them off. All the trees are brown but the sky isn't grey and the music is still alive and well. I hear that rain is on the way here in Arkansas so that's good!
As always we'll be at Morano's for our weekly Blues Therapy this Wednesday from 6-9PM. It's always a great time, good people, good food and the music isn't too bad either.
Thursday July 28th Join us at Cookson Village in Oklahoma on Lake Tenkiller. Larry and I will be playing some acoustic from 6-9PM
Friday July 29th Brick Fields Band will be at the American Legion in Fayetteville, AR for Dinner, dance and music. 6-9PM $10 Cover, Couples 2 for $15.
Coming up in August I'm honored to be working with the award winning I'll Fly Away Foundation. I'll be leading two collaborative song writing sessions for children one on Aug 6th and the other on Aug 13th. If you know someone with children ages 8-12 that might be interested, please share this event. For more information click on the link below.

Hello Good People
This weekend we will be playing at an old fashioned Supper Club! What a fun time this will be. I hope you will join us. Check it out:
Friday, June 10
Back in the day, supper clubs were considered a “destination” and people would dress in their best attire, hit the town, and head to the ballrooms with the intention of spending their whole evening from cocktail hour to after-dinner entertainment, night club style. The club featured a casual and relaxed atmosphere and the patrons knew a live orchestra would play their favorite tunes. Everyone would be dancing. The tradition is back!
Featuring live music with Brick Fields playing the Blues!
There will be a short BLUES dance lesson before the band begins.
For your optimum experience, take dance lessons before the event at the Mt Sequoyah Center. Email for details. firstname.lastname@example.org
BBQ dinner provided by "Girls Gone BBQ"
$60 per person for both dinner and dance. You may register through the Mt Sequoyah Center website.
The deadline to register is June 8 (or until the event is full!). Sorry, no drop-ins. We must know in advance in order to provide enough food and space for everyone.
ON ANOTHER NOTE:
THE LOST TRACKS!
Over the last several years I've had folks contact me asking about some of my earlier recordings from the late 1990's. I've recently found some of these recordings and I've put them on the website available for download. You can find them in the Music Store under "The Lost Tracks".
DIVAS ON FIRE
Also this weekend I will be with Divas On Fire in Eureka Springs Arkansas at Chelsea's Saturday June 11th at 9PM!
And remember Brick Fields Blues Therapy every Wednesday night at Morano's in Fayettville, AR 6-9PM since 2012!
We hope to see you soon!
