Feels like coming home again

The first time I walked into a Unity church, I felt like I was home. That was over 20 years ago in Gaithersburg. It was with friends at Unity that I picked up the guitar and started playing music again after a long dry spell. That trio, with Joe Loftus and Robert Cote, played for a lot of church services, as well as parties and gatherings and created lots of good memories for me.

So it feels like a homecoming to be back at Unity for a benefit concert. The Soulpajamas duo that Erin and I started has grown with the addition of Mandolin Rain (John Robbins on bass and Jeff Halverson on drums) as well as special guest, Ogun Holder on keyboard. These guys really bring the songs to life in a way I’ve never heard before.

Join us for a special evening of original Soulpajamas music, plus other familiar favorites. Hear Soulpajamas with full band on Friday Nov 2 at 7:30pm at Unity of Gaithersburg.

Soulpajamas 2.0

John, Dan, Erin, Jeff: Soulpajamas

Meet Soulpajamas 2.0. We’d been a duo for a long time, but we always recorded with a band and we performed with a band whenever possible. Now we are joined by John Robbins on guitar and bass and Jeff Halverson on drums and percussion. These two musicians bring a wealth of creativity and musicality to the band. Our first public appearance is Sunday Aug 26 at Unity of Gaithersburg, where we’ll be joined by Ogun Holder on keyboards.

Another date to keep in mind is Nov 2. We’ll bring the full band back to Unity of Gaithersburg for a benefit concert. We’ll be updating you with more dates soon.
