Hi Gary & Sara, I'm a friend of Steve Hirsh and also had the pleasure of playing with you at Zorthian's last Sunday and in October. I also play at Remo every Wednesday night and would like to second his invitation. I love your singing and synths. It has just the ethereal feel I'm looking for in the soundtrack to a meditation work of video art I'm putting the finishing touches to. Please contact me and I'll send you my phone number; I'd love to discuss collaborating with you on this project. Hope to see you at Remo too. - Ken Moore
