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 June edition of

The Geoffrey Castle Newsletter

If you're getting this for the first time, you're really not alone. We set another record high for sign ups in a single two-week period in May! Welcome, new friends!

So much news, and so many shows…where to begin?

Well, first of all, I've got to talk about my upcoming trip to New York City! I'll be doing a series of educational outreach performances in the New York area, and then on FRIDAY JULY 13th I'll be playing a 20 Year Reunion performance with my Jump, Swing, Boogie Blues band GROOVALAYA at the beautiful Triad - Stage72 Theater on 72nd Street in Manhattan!

All the original players will be there too, including Fausto Bozza (guitar and vocals), Adam Pincus (bass and vocals and amazing songwriter), Jeff Shiller (tenor sax), Art Lillard (drums)—and me! Think "Big Bad Voodoo Daddy" with a violin and you ALMOST get the picture… Got friends in NY? Let 'em know about the show!

There's also a day where I'm doing THREE shows. All in Tacoma.

There's a concert with the Coats in Kent…

And there's solo shows all over Skagit County (I'm doing a little tour of local libraries! My Mom will like that…)

I've also got fun stuff coming up in July for all my friends in Alaska! I'll be performing for the first time at The Carousel in Anchorage!

Did you know that nearly every CD I've ever done is available RIGHT NOW at my Download Store? You can listen before you buy, you can download individual tracks or whole CDs, you can name your own price, and there's lots of music there that isn't available ANYWHERE else… Check it out!

It's Summertime! You need a t-shirt! Get one now!
