Sep. 24:  Transforming a vacuum store

Dom served as the main sound tech and performed at a multi-performer show to help survivors of Hurricane Katrina.

The most unique part of the Saturday-night event was its location:  the Oreck Vacuum Store in Washington Twp., N.J.  Owner Kris Noyes, a friend and musician, turned his business space into the setting for a successful fundraiser.  With the help of musicians Steven Paul, BackYard, Colby Stead, Ete and Dom, plus others, Kris had the place ready to accommodate performers and donors for a four-and-a-half-hour show.

The evening generated over $500 in attendee contributions, the entirety of which went to the Oreck Employee Relief Fund, underwritten by Oreck Corp., headquartered in New Orleans, La.  Kris' store matched the donations dollar-for-dollar, meaning more than $1,000 was sent to the relief fund at the end of the night.

June 25:  Hangin' with Russ Edwards

Dom met longtime country/folk recording artist Russ Edwards in January, and after running into each other a number of times since then, Russ offered Dom the chance to play short sets during Russ' shows on consecutive Saturdays in June, the 18th and 25th.

Dom played "Hum a Few Bars," "Not Supposed to Like" and "Two Lights at a Time" on the 18th.

On the 25th, Dom performed four songs during Russ' intermission:  "Say Hi to Angelo's," B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone," Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line" and "Not Supposed to Like."
