The best part was seeing my high school buddy, Sarah Morrow lead Dr. John’s band. She is one awesome jazz trombone player.
Special thanks to all of the volunteers for BYLT and Center for the Arts coming together to make Stars at the North Star. The house and grounds were beautiful, a crisp clear evening with stars and music. Great gala dinner by Antonio’s Catering. What a beautiful community
