We are reaching for the high notes with our Ultimate Stretch Goal on our @kickstarter! We still have some VIP ticket rewards and some other cool new stuff including one Piano Party with Mitch! @therealmitchy will come to your party and play your piano - or bring his keyboard - and your guests will get a chance to sing with one of the best accompanists in the business. And Mitch is also an amazing singer and can entertain your party that way if you prefer. Besides being the keyboard player and Musical Director at UnCab Mitch has worked long time with @sandragbernhard and tons of other folks including @anagasteyer. Super fun way to spend a birthday or anniversary! LINK IN BIO! 💫 .

You need to #understand music to #touch people and become the #soundtrack to their lives. Can I tell you one of the greatest moments in my life?
It was the first time they celebrated #DrKing ’s birthday in Washington, D.C., and #StevieWonder was in charge and asked me to be #musicaldirector . After the performance, we went to a reception, and three ladies came over: The older lady had Sinatra at the Sands, I arranged that; her daughter had my album The Dude; and then that lady’s daughter had #Thriller . Three generations of women said those were their favorite records. That touched me so much.
Lately, I’ve seen a lot of posts about men’s mental health, which is a critical issue. We’re often told to “man up”, to stop being “p*ssies” ( as if that meant anything), and talking isn’t always an option. I’m glad to see that times are changing, as yes, it’s ok not to be ok, lads. Here’s a track I always associated with depression, “Seven Days of Falling” by E.S.T. I know it’s hard, but don’t be afraid to open up, you’re not alone.
#tbt to the time I hired a private jet so I could propose to the love of my life! I proposed to Lisa somewhere just above Palma, Majorca - you should have seen her face when the ground staff started applauding as she walked down the steps as we exited the plane in London! A beautiful moment, neither of us will forget! #marriedlife @ldonmallreeve
