To my surprise, someone taps me on my shoulder and I couldn’t believe that it was Carol Gadd. I haven’t seen her since 2008 at my first gallery showing in Scottsdale, AZ.

Thank you Cathy Shaffer for taking me to this. Music is my universe and it heals my soul!

 It’s the Beehive Queen, Christine Ohlman!  At Soho House for this screening. Can’t wait to see this movie. Jake Gyllenhaal and Matt Heineman hosting the event tonight. Directors Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi are here too. #freesolodocumentaryu  @loriburton30 You should have been up there to sing this with Felix!
 The Slim Kings with Liberty DeVitto at the The Loft/City Winery. Lot of us here to cheer them on. Next will be Christine Ohlman!  Congratulations #Nick Vallelonga for the wins on your movie #TheGreenBook.  How wonderful that I will see @FelixCavaliere’s Rascals perform tonight @citywinerynyc. We haven’t seen each other in years! So excited to see the performance.
 Here I am with Alex Honnold, the only guy who climbed El Capitan Free Solo. @thelaravee @meemee5290. I told Alex you started rock climbing, he said to go watch this movie in imax. This was an amazing climb and how long it took him to do it. #freesolodocumentary ... I’m glad I’m in the music business!   Congrats to #BohemianRhapsodyfilm for winning Best Movie Drama and Rami Malek for Best Actor at the Golden Globe Award Show. Here I met 2 of its stars after a screening of the movie back in November...#Rami Malek & #Joseph Mazzello.  The “hang” before and after the show. @thefabfaux performed my favorite period of The Beatles...the early years and I didn’t know that was what they were performing. I was just choosing the date I could go. Perfect night.
