The week of the 11th was the first Chene Park show of the season. Will Downing and Mike Phillips debuted our annual Wednesday night jazz concert series. Mike Phillips is a saxophone player that has played with The Artist Formerly Known As Prince before. He is from Harlem and has a personality as nice as his sax skills.
Two days before the concert it was Twintern, the job for me and Carmen is to make sure the VIP lounge was ready. It was in rough shape but we took the lining off the walls and painted it black. After all that was done I free handed the name of the lounge on each wall that we pained black and Carmen put stars on it. In the end the room looked a lot better than before.
During the concert I was at the front of the stage in the orchestra pit taking pictures for social media. That was very fun and was the highlight of my night.
