"Rock a Day Johnny was the highlight of the concert.  I loved all your stuff. It was not only humorous but gave the audience  another  look at what a true  multimedia event can be. I would really appreciate it if you would  contribute another of your works to the next concert in March. The theme is  "Rituals" and is open to many aspects of the theme. Thanks and hope we can do another  together, Ron"
