I have 2 new songs for you.  I have teamed up with Gini Graham Scott, a Writer, Producer, & Director of Changemakers Productions.  Gini is a very talented lyric writer, & I was very glad to compose melodies for 2 of her songs.  I will introduce Gini to the audience.  A videographer will make a video, at The Pyramid Alehouse only.  Will you please be ready to make a lot of noise after each song, so we make an exciting video?  You will not be visible in the video, so you can be anonymous.  I will sing both of these new songs at my next 2 gigs.
