She's beautiful

I was so glad to get this e-mail today, on this day:

September 2006

Dear Hearts and Gentle People-

Check out for news & information about my band,
Ellys & the Gin Rickeys. (Lara Stevens = L.S. = Ellys) The guys and I
have had a fabulous summer and are looking forward to the next couple of
weeks when we record a demo (check back after September 18th for sample
tracks), perform at two fabulous venues in the NYC area and hit the road
bound for a gig in beautiful Ohio! Let us know what you think about the
site and we can’t wait to see you at our upcoming shows!

With gratitude-

The Gin Rickeys are:
Greg McKenzie, pianist/arranger
Brian Cassier, bass
John Arrucci, drums

I met Ellys in 2002. She's one of the keepers. One of those I feel too uncool, too afraid to deserve but who cherishes me anyway and laughs off those insecurities. On a high floor in a tall building we bonded on the subjects of many things. This project is a new direction for her and I'm grateful to have news of its growing momentum today.
