So after a quiet month of June with just one recording session and a couple of rehearsals we head into July and the 12 days of busy. July 8 we have a recording session at Kingsize Sound Labs with the band (Yay!). Then on the 10th I head over to the Skokie Library to teach songwriting to kids with the goal to produce a song the band will play at our July 20th gig at the Library. This is going to be a lot of fun!
Now the weekend in between all that we head out on Saturday, July 14th to Frankfort for Chillin’ & Grillin’ for a Cure. The event is to raise money to battle cystic fibrosis which is a horrible disease that affects about 70k children and adults worldwide (30k here in the US). We will play two sets. One at 3:30pm and the other at 6pm. Each will be around 30 minutes give or take a few. They’ll also have a rib cooking contest, basket raffles, games and other activities. Come on out if you can and click on Chillin and Grillin. It’ll take you to the Eat. Pray Dean website for more information. Come on out and support a great cause!
Then on Sunday, July 15th we play local at the Island in the City Festival in Norridge, Il. This is 3 blocks from my house and they have a carnival, games, great food and music. We go on at 4pm. It’s gonna be a lot of fun playing the big stage at the festival.
We also a have a gig coming in August at the St Helen’s Carnival and more recording (CD release in the fall?) yet to come. So keep an eye on the Poochamungas and hope to see you back here soon.
