THE FIRST 50 YEARS – JEFF PIKE BIRTHDAY BASH AND CONCERT – JULY 13, 2011
I would like to personally invite anyone who has ever enjoyed my music to a very special Birthday Concert helping me celebrate my 50th trip around the sun. I really cannot believe it has finally arrived and how quick the passing of time has been. For many years I have contemplated how I would spend the 50th anniversary of my arrival to this planet, and who I would spend it with. After long and careful examination of my career and my personal life as it is today, I came upon the obvious, and only answer to this question. I want to spend it celebrating, singing, laughing, crying and making music with the dear people who have shared my life with me, shaped my heart and soul, supported my music, stood by me through the good and the bad and helped make me the man I am today.
All during the course of the evening I will be inviting friends and musicians who I have played with over the years to join me onstage to perform certain select songs of my personal choosing. Every song I perform will either have been extremely important in the journey of my life, or one that helps tell my story and is very, very close to my heart. There will be several songs I have never performed in public before, for personal reasons, and may never perform onstage again. Both cover and original songs. I am going to start with 1966 and try and bring it up the present. Tough job but should make for a good show. The show will be recorded for posterity.
I have another BIG surprise about this evening to tell you…..but I need to wait just a little while longer…..:-) Stay tuned for a very cool update. I do hope you can make it.
Thanks to everyone who has shared my life with me, both past and present, here and gone….and for helping and allowing me the honor and privilege to live my life like a song. Stay tuned for more info… 🙂
The road is long…
