Music In The Park – Take 2
Remember the last Sunday in June when the temperature was so high and it was so hot that the Music In The Park concert was cancelled? I didn’t think it was going to be re-scheduled, but I’m here to tell you that it has been. The new date is Friday, September 6, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the north end of Curtis Park. Instead of Sunday, it’s now the first Friday of September. Circle the date on your calendar right now. It’s going to be a great night (weather permitting). I’ll be playing two sets of music starting at 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm. Then a rocking blues band called the Bad Catz will play the rest of the night. Big stage, big sound, it’s all good. I’ll see you there.
I’ve been telling everyone I know that my music is now included on Pandora, the Internet radio station. If you’re already signed up, please add me (Mister Cooper) to your favorite station. I’ll give you a big orange thumbs up if you do. Or create a new station of kid’s music and add these names for continuous listening enjoyment: Mister Cooper (again), Dan Zanes, Elizabeth Mitchell, Dean Jones, Frances England, and The Loose Acoustic Trio (the band I played with). This will start you off in the right direction. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, go to Pandora and sign up. It’s free and fun. And addicting.
“The Map” premiers this Friday night, July 26, at 7:30 pm at the Guild Theater (2828 35th Street, Sacramento, CA. 95817). The film is about two young girls who find a treasure map of Sacramento and spend the rest of the movie (about 20 minutes, I believe) riding their bikes around looking at the beautiful sights, historic landmarks, public art works, and places of interest. They follow the map all the way to a surprise ending. It’s very sweet and I’m honored that Patrick Powers and Robert Ansell (the two dads of Two Dads Films) asked me to come up with some music to go along with their film. I can’t wait to see how it all came together.
The t-shirts are looking good. And the kids who are wearing them also look fabulous. Please feel free to check them out the next time you’re at a library music time. It’s the hippest summer fashion statement you’ll ever see.
Please check the “Live Shows” page every once in a while because there are lots of fun shows coming up soon. Fairytale Town, an ice cream social at the Fair Oaks Library, and the new Music In The Park concert. Which brings us back to where we started. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read this blog. Your support means the world to me…
