There were so many talented musicians in attendance last night. Legendary Lap Steel guitarist Jay Leach was dining with Quentin Dennard. Jay plays for the house band on American Idol and counts his work on the John Davidson Show to be a great achievement in his career. Quentin is a professional drummer from Detroit and known for playing with the Temptations and Stanley Turrentine back in the day.

He had a photo on his iPhone of the bust of Coltrane that he made. Kenny Elliot was also at the party. Kenny is known for his work with the Lou Rawls band. Kenny has such a positive energy and always gets people into a fun mood. Brandino is a 7 time Grammy awarded, Producer, Composer, Arranger, and Bassist.Brandino has worked with Michael Jackson, Bootsy Collins, Justin Timberlake and Mary J Blige. Its great that Brandino continues to recover and play all these amazing shows. We all look forward to next years celebration!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/betweenthelines/between-the-lines-2  

There are some wonderful perks with the pledges.

Experience a vast range of stories, with a cast of diverse characters,
through the classic dating-sim style we’ve all grown to love. You can decide which character you want to approach, but you’ll have
to find out where and when. You decide what to say and it won’t be
your gender that affects the outcome, but those choices.

You play as whoever you like. You can be male, female or non-binary.
No matter your choice there, every character is open for your
approach. Of course, some may be more hesitant to your approach, some may have other preferences at first.

You have many locations to visit and hone your skills. Just explore
the city to your pleasure. Don’t worry about missing opportunities,
you can’t miss anything that didn’t happen yet. Didn’t meet that cute
guy from the title screen yet? No worries, he’ll be just as eager to
get to know you, no matter if you approached him first, or 10 others
before.

Of course if you keep flirting with all of them, some might start to
notice the game you’re playing.

Your decisions will always have an influence on how the game with the characters moves forward.
