Anyway, let's review this past crazy week.
Last week we got to see our talented musician friend Andy Mason and his family: Anne, Lennon, and Juniper. Andy performed 9 shows in three days around our town. Here his son Lennon joins him for the performance of Spring Chicken, download the .99 song https://www.amazon.com/Spring-Chicken/dp/B01EDIJBZ4 all proceeds go to a young fan who has cancer. Her family asked Andy to do a performance for the child and he did. He has gone back and has already delivered them $600 to help with medical costs. Apparently the mother has had to quit her job just to care for her daughter. Andy is a good and giving person, please support this project and you can also just buy his fantastic music! http://andymasonmusic.org/
