Don’t forget the big show at Jimmy Mak’s this Friday! LaRhonda Steele & I are “Singing For Linda”. $5 donation for Linda Hornbuckle is included in the $15 cover charge. Her husband Mark will be there for those who want to give a larger contribution. LaRhonda & I will sing tunes from our new CD and feature LaRhonda on some songs from Linda’s songlist too.
