Love donations for Second Annual Fourth of July Party


(or here:) Oh, you know what time it is! Are you ready for our 2nd Annual 4th of July Celebration? We are bringing it back live and by popular demand, yes, friends, your prayers have been answered and wishes do come true; its on! So be here or be sad when your friends tell you how awesome it was! Here’s the skinny:

It’s going to be “potluck” so bring your favorite dish and beverage or perhaps a delightful snack. We’d like to get an accurate head count, so please ASAP email Tonja at Tonja@JamesHowardMusic.com to let us know what you are bringing. We are asking that you RSVP right away, so stop reading and start emailing!

Last year we shot a video for With The Radio On“, and everyone let their hair down and had a blast! This year, we’d like to shoot an acoustic video during a sunset sail with a few of you on our floating dock and ask that everyone bring a floating candle to add to the lake at the time of the shoot.

Bring your favorite beach towel, blanket or soccer chairs to hang comfortably for the day. Last year Debbie Sztain brought Kayaks, (there is also a boat launch by the fire station) we have a hot tub and plenty of lawn space for games. We’ll fire up the gas grill, and have a bonfire at night.

This is what we will need to get this party started, so please sign-up to allow us to borrow these items when you email:

Here is what we be a needin’:

* Prior to party: – Pressure washer and volunteer to help us a couple days before the party.

*2 extra garbage cans & 2 recycle containers.

*White Christmas lights, rope lights or other outdoor lighting to line the driveway, illuminate the walkways, decks & patios for safety, and so the band can see on stage after sunset. (We are covering an acre of property.)

*5 – 10×10′ tents (at the minimum) to cover food/drink tables, and band(s), and to provide covered areas outside from sun and other fantastic Pacific Northwest weather.

*2 – 8×10′ tables and 1 smaller beverage table.

* Napkins, disposable plates, cups & cutlery.

* Cost of clean up for carpets, yard & trash removal.

* We would like to be able to pay the musicians and rent a PA like last year, your love donation will help make this happen!

* Not necessary, but would be nice:

o Small riser stage for the band(s).

o Motor to transform our dock into a floating dock!

o 4 standing gas heaters

James Howard recording session with the Devlan James Band in Georgetown

© gabryshak 2013

Dennis, Andrew, Scotty, David and I had a great time tracking live together at Earwig Studio in Georgetown with Don Farwell engineering. With Dennis at the helm bringing his Nashville studio experience and his gift for songwriting and arranging we musicians were free to do what we do best. The three days of recording at Earwig brought us 8 songs closer to a new Devlan James Album. We have all been really enjoying the sessions, hanging out with each-other and making magic in the studio. We are looking forward to the up-coming release.”
