Entry #17 I'm going to Disneyland!

"Edie, now that you've made your solo debut at The Cinema Bar and became 2nd fiddle at The Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest what's next?" I'M GOING TO DISNEYLAND!!

That's right people. I'm going to Disneyland thanks to my dear friends Mikey, Tom F, JR, Guy and Chris. Great birthday gift guys, THANKS!

Whew! What a whirlwind week. It all started with the debut solo/birthday show (5/13), then the Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest (5/17) and finally Murphy's Flaw concert at Braemar Country Club (5/19).

Well the birthday gig was FUN. So many friends came to cheer me on as I mixed up the set with fiddle tunes, some butchered rock covers and my original stuff. Check out the YouTube clip (courtesy of Richard Greene, thanks Richard!) from the 5/13 show on my new video page.

Special thanks to my sister Christy, who brought the best cake ever, Dan Janisch who totally rocked my birthday night, the guys in my band Peter Kavanaugh, Million Dollar Dan and John Bryan and especially to everyone who came and showed such love and support. Thank you!

It's official. I'm second fiddle according to the judges at The Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest.

I played "Indiana Waltz" by Richard Greene and was backed up my Murphy's Flaw bandmates George Biner (1st place winner in adv. flatpick guitar & 3rd place backup guitar) and Paul Dorn (2nd place winner in backup bass). What a thrill and an honor.
