Midwest tour off to a great start!

A fabulous Frenchy night was had by all in Traverse City

First stop - Great Lakes - Great beauty

Last minute call to do a gig at my friend Chef Andrew Wigger's restaurant called "Artisan" at the Delamar Hotel in Traverse City, Michigan.

The theme was the French Harvest season, complete with a raclette station, and many a variety of wines.

Quelle retrouvaille!

The coolest part for me was all of the amazing reunions I got to have!

Starting with Chef Wigger and his lovely wife Jessica.

Plus making some great music with my colleague and guitarist par excellence Matt Lorusso

Special visit from friends from our Northwestern University School of Music days :-)

Reunited for the first time since 1998! Keri Chryst and Gretchen Palmer

And the mind blowing bonus of an old friend from my childhood growing up in Saudi Arabia! Yowza! Talk about a blast from the past!

Have wheels - can travel

So grateful for the very affordable loan of this fuel efficient Prius from my college #bff Ngan MacDonald. It's already gotten me to Michigan and back and on to Nebraska and beyond!

Merci beaucoup !
