March 2013- "I just returned home from a 3 week Tour of Europe with Sister Sledge and some of my Funk heroes! 12 cities in 3 weeks...we were on the move! As a Musical Director on a tour of that magnitude you are forced to be stretched and motivated in so many ways...what an educating experience I'll never forget! All of the Artists and musicians performed at top notch caliber and brought some serious soul/funk to the table!
What I loved about it most was the "hang time" away from the stage. Three weeks of traveling together & living out of tour buses, hotels and airplanes you really get to see another side of people's lives...these are the memories and experiences that will last a lifetime. Here are some pics from the tour... Enjoy!" -DA
