Four Nights at the Alderbrook Resort & Spa

On Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, July 12, 13, 15 and 16, I played at the Alderbrook Resort and Spa again (see entry below). Once again, I was well received, both with the P.A. the first three nights and acoustic/unplugged on Saturday. My cello projects sound well, and the lounge there has bright acoustics. Each of the nights was busier than the night before. As always, the food was outstanding, as was the view and the service. The salmon dishes have always been my favorites, but I had the Ahi tuna dinner on two of the nights, it was so good. I even brought a dessert home each night--my favorite was the chocolate/peanut butter one. My music selection and style fit right in to the setting, and I was happy to add another positive to the already beautiful experience for everyone. The effect of playing multiple nights in the same place was wonderful, because I became very comfortable with the surroundings. Again, thank you to Sam and everyone at the Alderbrook for having me out there, I look forward to next time.
Speaking of "next time," I will be performing at the Mason County Fair & NPRA Rodeo in the Olympic Hall on the concession stage all three nights, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 29, 30 and 31.
