Thanks for all of your happy birthday wishes. I turned 5 on November 7th. We had a party here at the farm. I had an ice cream cake with candles, and a party hat. Bobby was away in Japan, and I sure did miss him!
Bobby and the band….Mark McMillen (keyboards and vocals), Patrick Lamb (sax), Carlyle Barriteau (guitar), Johnny Friday (drums), Roberto Vally (bass), Jeanie McClain (vocals), Christian Ebner (vocals), Richard McIntosh (sound engineer), and my great pal, Jack White, all traveled to Japan for a series of shows at The Blue Note clubs in Osaka, Tokyo and Nagoya. They all love to visit Japan. I am told the Japanese people are very nice, and that the food is fabulous.
After each show Bobby signed autographs. Many of the people brought albums for him to sign, and some of them bought Bobby Caldwell baseball caps. Bobby signed those too. The hats are cute. Soon we will have some for the fans in the USA. We will also have some more music, and other fun stuff.
Bobby won't be home for long. Next he will be traveling with his friends, Brian Culbertson, Warren Hill, Ray Parker Jr. and Eric Darius for A Soulful Christmas. They will all be close to our farm on December 9th at The Beacon Theater in New York City with the great, Al Jarreau. Our whole family is going to see them. I wish I could go too!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving. It's one of my favorite holidays……I love to eat!
