Ginger & Sarah Band Reunion October 25, 2013

There was a time many moons ago when I was one half of a two-female-fronted acoustic folk funk soul rhythmic harmonic jam-type band called The Ginger & Sarah Band. Yes, it's obvious; the Ginger is me and the Sarah is Sarah Dashew. We parted ways over 10 years ago and haven't performed together since. But that is about to change! We're reuniting next Friday, October 25th at One 2 One Bar on South Lamar at 9pm. Come check out the way we harmonize and manage to blend our very unique styles into one juicy, yummy tone. (At least we hope so....it's been a decade. Did I mention that?) On stage with us will be our friend who drummed with us years ago, Carles Zanetti. He came to the States from Italy to tour with us and stayed! The oh-so-clever-and-talented Jeff Botta will be on bass! And my sweet Stewart Cochran will be wailing on the keys!

We wrote a song long ago which was never released. Above the Roar is a nostalgic piece with a new forward sound. The drums and bass tracks were recorded long ago in a studio in Italy. Everything else was recorded recently in Los Angeles and Austin. This will be available soon for purchase and download. https://soundcloud.com/gingerandsarahband/above-the-roar

See you next Friday, October 25th!

What do my nephew, my birthday and Formula One™ have in common? Not much! But I thought I'd throw them all together in one message to you, my friend! My Nephew, Colter: https://www.gofundme.com/colterstemcell I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your contributions, no matter how big or small! My brother has the opportunity to help this precious boy with a very successful stem cell treatment. We are asking for your contributions to help them make this happen. We've raised almost $7000! The goal is $22,000, so we are inching there, little by little, by the giving hearts of friends, family, fans and strangers. https://www.gofundme.com/colterstemcell And consider it my birthday present! https://holdmyticket.com/tickets/260044 My actual birthday is November 1st! Yes, my mother went into labor on Halloween and I came out to see my aunts in costume and thought "THIS IS GOING TO BE FUUUUUUUN!" And it is! Life is great, often challenging, but I'm so thankful for all that I have, am and will be. Your support of my career has been a major blessing to me. So thank you! If you are in Austin, we will celebrate on November 4th at the One 2 One Bar at 8pm.1509 S. Lamar 78704 GONNA BE SPECIAL! And in Houston, we will celebrate a bit late: November 11th at Anderson Fair! Also a special treat! Lastly, some of you know that I spend a lot of my year preparing for a huge high end event I produce for the Formula One™ race weekend in Austin!
