Sorry for be "out of the loop" here on the BHO but things have been jumping since the last blog.
The summer time with Festi season had me putting some miles on the old truck as I have traveled over 15K just since the 2nd week of AUGUST! Doing banjo work for a living can be quite the challenge as many of you know.
But with a calm cool heart we go forth and plan for every snafoo that comes down the pike. Avoiding those things that would discourage or keep us from playing what our hearts tell us to.
As the holidays are now upon us I reflect on what has allowed for me to do what I do. The people I have met along the way (and am SO GRATEFUL for), the bands I have sat in with or opened for, the solo shows given, ect. Truly humbled that I CAN have the opportunity to do this for a living. And finding interesting and fun ways to GIVE BACK to the community or allowing the music to reach those in need. (As there are MANY).
Just wish to step back and thank each and every one of you for the encouragement, for your precious time, and for your well wishes along the way!
Wishing you only love, light, and MUCH respect.

Jon, you were the first person to stick your hand out to me when I first became a BHO member. It is you that I owe thanks to. You gave me encouragement along the way, you called and stayed in touch, you offered your support every time you got the chance, you mailed me things in the mail and for that I am thankful.
Just keep on being Jon as the world loves him. Happy Holidays to you my friend.
