Party For Paul Sat Nov 9th- Plus new tunes from Song in an Hour

We've got some great music coming Saturday, Nov 9th at the Camel from 4 to 8 PM with Song in an Hour project, Tin Can Fish Band (featuring Steve Fisher, Doug Austin, Jack Taggart, and Keith McPhee), Norman Norman, Pam McCarthy, Wendy Pace, and the Neatles. The Camel is located at 1621 W. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23220. It's one of the best venues in town to hear local music (thecamel.org 804-353-4901). A $3 donation is suggested. 

For those interested in our Song In An Hour project, we will be playing the first four songs that were created in the past year by teams of local musicians. To create each song, we had a tunesmith write the basics of a song in an hour or so using prepared lyrics, and then over time, perfect it with a singer. They will end up on our 2014 CD release of twelve new originals, featuring twelve different singers. We'll be running over the tunes a few times before Tin Can Fish Band takes the stage at 5 PM. 

The video cameras will be rolling, and international photography legend James Fortune will be shooting portraits of all the musicians on the show for the CD.  You can meet the guy who was there shooting during the recording of the first Doors album, plus he was at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco when Led Zeppelin broke attendance records, and worked on various Paul McCartney shoots in Los Angeles.

The suggested donation is $3, and all funds go to help Paul Magill, who recently fractured his pelvis, cracked some ribs and bruised internal left side organs. Let's help those who give so much back to the community, Paul has filmed and posted over 1,000 videos with Rockitz on Facebook and YouTube, and many bands owe gigs & new fans from his volunteer efforts. Drop in and say hi.
