The Key West Connection


This is a very special CD for the band and myself.  It all started as a fundraising project for the Key West High School’s music and video programs.  It soon became a community effort when some of Michigan and Key West’s most prominent artists and creative minds stepped forward to help.


The album features performances by the Motor City Horns (Bob Seger’s horn band), Greg ‘Fingers’ Taylor (former Coral Reefer on harmonica), Donny Brown (Verve Pipe drummer), to name a few.  The opening cut, Gypsy Wisdom, features the Key West HS Band, Choir, and Steel Drum Rhythm Corp.


We have lyrical collaboration with author Lorian Hemingway (granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway), and cover art by world-renowned marine-life artist, Wyland.  This musical venture is a bridge between MI and Key West, The Key West Connection.
