Honey's Musician's Corner

Hello Friends,

I am so excited about our new site and I know all of you are going to appreciate all the hard work that went into it to give you a more comprehensible and interesting site with lots of pictures and information. Also you have the ability to participate in the site with pictures that you take and also signing in to the Guestbook. There's also a FAQ section with answers to the most asked questions. I've spent hours going through old pictures that I know you're going to enjoy. I didn't realize how young we were when we started out!! When you're a musician there really is a complete history of your career with photos. We have thousands and I'll share the best ones with you over time. If you have any suggestions to make the site even better, please let us know.
I'd like to thank Franky Bruneel, our new webmaster for all of his great ideas and hard work. Franky founded and still runs Belgium's only blues magazine called "Back To The Roots", is a blues promoter and a good friend of ours since 1988. As you can imagine, he has been working many nights and weekends for us and we are so very grateful. This new site is completely his "baby". But he has given me so much homework that I feel like I'm back in school. I'm almost done now, thank goodness, and I can't wait to hear how you like it.

I'm still in shock and very excited about winning the BMA (Blues Music Award) for 2008. It's called the Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year Award, or something like that. I don't have it here to look at what it's actually called so I'm guessing. As I told you in the last Blast, my father has it in Modesto (7 hours away from me) and in order to get it back I need to go for a visit. Then I will steal it back!! I wanted him to have it for awhile so that he can feel good about all the money he spent on piano lessons when I was a little girl. See... it wasn't all for nothing!!! I have a statue and a career to show for it. Thanks Dad. And Mom too. Actually, my mom was the one who insisted I practice one hour each day. And she also would make me play when company came over. I guess she was getting me over my stage fright at an early age. I can remember them giving me 25 cents to pay for my lesson each week. I guess that was a long, long time ago. And a great big THANK YOU (yes, I know capital letters are called 'shouting' in computer lingo) to all of you who have supported me in your hearts over all these years. And thanks to those of you who actually voted for me. You've made me very happy. It was a long-time dream come true.

So I hope you all enjoy the new site. I'll see you when you make it out to a gig. Hey, I'm ALWAYS there. But you have to get up off the couch and put on some clothes and drive somewhere at night on a night off. Now THAT sounds very, very difficult. (I won't go anywhere but my couch when I have a night off!!!) But you are Bluesmen and Blueswomen capable of the extreme and the impossible. I know you can do it. See you real soon.
