Welcome to the Blazing July and August Edition of

The Geoffrey Castle Newsletter

As I sit here, on a beautiful summer night in Seattle, I realize that I have so much to be thankful for: this green, beautiful land, my good friends, my fingers and toes, my lovely wife, and all the folks who have signed up for this email list since the last one went out. We just SMASHED the previous record for sign-ups! So if you are getting this newsletter for the first time, you are in mighty fine company.

First off, I owe everyone a little bit of an apology. My life has been so nuts of late that it's been many weeks since the last newsletter. I'm sorry!! But wow has it been fun! Lots of new friends and lots of travel to exotic places like Catalina Island California for the 4th of July, a gallery opening (Presenting the Red Queen) for Shannon in Queen Anne, and a weekend with family at the Oregon Country Fair. (There will be lots of pictures soon on my Facebook page. Very good reason to "like" me over at Facebook!).

Someone asked me the other day if I had a "business plan." I gave it some thought, and realized that my business plan was really very simple, and could be summed up in a single lovely sentence: I go where I'm invited, and when I get there, I give it everything I've got!

It would be awesome to receive an invitation from each and every one of you! Here's how:

  1. Invite my music into your home, car, phone, tablet, or even CD player!
    Just visit my online store at www.GeoffreyCastle.com, and share with your friends.

  2. Invite me to your special event!
    All year long I travel all over the world doing private parties, corporate events, weddings, and even house concerts. I'm the EZ button. Really. Get in touch!

  3. Invite me to your School!
    I travel all over the U.S., during the school year, doing performances for schools. Elementary, junior high, high school, and college levels are all equally fun, and equally welcome. Get in touch with my friends at Academic Entertainment!

  4. Invite me to your home!
    I love doing house concerts. Especially when I'm on the road doing school shows. If I'm in your area, and I've got the evening free, throw a party! It's fun, you'll be the talk of the town, and it's EZ too.

Here's an example of an invitation that happened recently:

ALASKA!

After being gone for over a year, I am proud and happy to announce that I have been invited to return to Anchorage Alaska for a full weekend of concerts, including an All-Ages Sunday show, at Blues Central! I created a song, "Alyeska," just for my fans and friends up North and included it on my Deep Well Sessions double CD: I can't wait to come up and do the DEBUT performance of "Alyeska" in the place where it was written. It's never too early to make a reservation, or to tell all your friends that I'm coming to Blues Central!

The rest of the month of July and the month of August is filled, to the brim, with good times, great shows, travel, and music. Nothing beats summer in the Northwest!

See you soon and stay in touch!

Here's what's happening the rest of the summer!
