Last night a bunch of talented singer/songwriters — host Margot MacDonald, Renee McCullough, Karter Jaymes, Mike Corrado, and Joe Peck (aka me) with Gabin Assouramou on percussion — played the Hard Rock Cafe DC for a BMI Songwriters Showcase benefit. It was a super night of great original tunes. BMI Senior VP Fred Cannon joined us at the Hard Rock as we all enjoyed the music for a good cause – Musicians on Call. The DC chapter of Musicians on Call takes the gift of live music – in the form of real live singer/songwriters – to the men and women who are receiving care at Walter Reed Hospital. As always, Margot MacDonald – a very talented singer/songwriter/recording artist – put together and led a wonderful evening of entertainment.
Many thanks to all my friends who showed up. I have to give a special “shout out” to Patrick, Heather, Nancy, Alyona & Scott, Peri & John, Mercedes, Matt, Andy, Joy & Carl, Tosia, Barb and Dan. Big, big thanks to Gabin Assouramou who did an amazing job on percussion.
