Come out and enjoy as Pianist Earl R. Johnson, Jr. lights it up LIVE in concert as one of the Headline Performers at the Inland Empire Community Festival on Saturday August 29th- 7:30pm show. The festival will be held at the Ontario Mills Mall (Ontario, CA) and is FREE to the public!! (So, there REALLY isn't any good reason not to come on out!!) Earl will also perform for a special "finale jam" with Malcolm Jamal Warner later that evening!!

This performance is going to be especially HOT as Earl will perform several songs from his award-winning debut CD, "JUICY" along with a few other surprises.

"JUICY" is Contemporary, Jazzy, with a Seriously Funky R&B Twist!! Earl was recently nominated (for the 2nd time this year!!) for "2009 Jazz Artist of the Year" by the Los Angeles Musi Awards which takes place in November. He already won this same coveted award at the South Bay Music Awards back in April of this year. Johnson and his CD have been receiving rave reviews all across the country, most recently in Atlanta where he tore it up before a wildly receptive crowd at Saambucas!!

The "JUICY" CD is available in stores and online at CDBaby.com, iTunes, and Amazon.com.

If there are friends of Dr. Derrick Finch in this group please contact me. We'll be having a celebration of his life March 14th at 7PM and I'd like musicians to sign up NOW if there is an interest in performing for this event. Derrick was an excellent musician loved in Los Angeles.... his home was Pittsburgh, PA. He was involved in a fatal car crash last week and we will all miss him.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
