It Doesn’t Get any Better Than Kimo and Zanuck!
There simply are not the words to describe the magic of these past few days spending time with Kimo, Zanuck and Zanuck’s lovely finance Stacie. It some ways it was a whirlwind of fun for Kimo and Jay – giving multiple workshops and concerts in just a few days. And the folks who showed up to play with them were, each and everyone, delightful!
Then when Zanuck and Stacie arrived it got even better! There was jamming, visiting, a bit of Polk County fall leaf touring and the big event – Jay, Kimo and Zanuck in concert at Tryon Fine Arts Center. (Stay tuned for videos from Erik Olsen)
We are so grateful to everyone who helped us to extend a warm Carolina Welcome to these world class musicians and we are especially grateful to Kimo and Zanuck!
