Educators

I have always been an advocate of community outreach performances—from college to kindergarten, it's always fun to go back to school! If you'd like to have me visit your school for assembly performances, and classroom workshops, get in touch with me or my friends at Academic Entertainment!

Welcome to the Yeehaa! Egg Rolls and Opry edition of

The Geoffrey Castle Newsletter

Can it really be mid-September already? Incredible. But time flies when you're having fun, right? And it's been a lot of fun. The trip to Vienna was lovely, and you've got to love a town that has a gold plated statue of a fiddle player in it: Johann Strauss. Very cool… then I came back home and drove out to Westport for their Blues Meets the Beach festival. Westport, I can tell you, is a long long way from Vienna, but the surfing is way better. <LOL>

If you're getting this for the first time you're really not alone. It took me about an hour to type in all the email addresses of everyone who signed up since the last newsletter went out! Some of you, I have to say, have pretty creative handwriting…

There is lots of news to report and some amazing things coming up including a trip to Nashville where I will play the Grand Old Opry (yeeeHaaa!) and a trip where I fly to Beijing to play music with Lucy Wu at some exclusive event for the Chinese government (egg rolls!).

I will try to remember to take pictures. I'm terrible about things like that.

Part of what's been making time fly this month has been mixing and recording with my friends A.J. Sorbello and Brian Fisher of Fractal Music Works. Fractal is an exciting new project that should be ready to drop before Christmas! It's like nothing you've ever heard me do before. It's got elements of electronica, trance, EDM, dubstep…it's trippy!

Speaking of Christmas, a whole stack of boxes arrived today full of copies of Underhill's Angel: A treasury of songs for the season. Such a great recording… If you're wondering what to give people in your business, or your office, or your family for the holidays, remember, music makes the perfect gift! You can always order individual CDs through my Web site's store, but if you want to do bulk orders (say for goody bags at an event, or something like that) just get in touch: I give discounts on big orders!

I'm also hard at work on the video of the concert I did back in June at the Triple Door Theater — the footage looks amazing and it sounds great too. The aerialists, the belly dancers, Josephine Howell, Darin rocking on drums…it was an incredible night. I'll be putting video clips up on my YouTube channel as soon as they're ready.

For those of you who don't want to wait for the video and don't live in Beijing or Nashville, don't worry, there will be lots of opportunities to catch me live all over the Puget Sound region in the next month too!

Here's the schedule:

We're going to rock the joint! Buy a VIP ticket and get some nice gifts and a meet and greet with the band before the show! And there'll be a dance floor too. Help support one of my favorite churches, and buy a ticket or six today!

Wow! You read all the way to the bottom of the newsletter! I love you for that!

Peace
