Hello, my dear friends,
I am feeling much better this week, but it has been a long, long road for me to get here. I thank those of you who sent prayers and good wishes. I have had two spinal surgeries and some other complications, but God is good, and I am back on the road again.
This month, it looks like the 27th Annual Baltimore County African American Cultural Festival will be the highlight event again. The featured headline artist is Musiq Soulchild. The other entertainers are Aaron Hill Trio featuring vocalists Ama Chandra and Micha Smith (I am not too familiar with this act), also Clarence Ward & Dat Feel Good and Jumpstreet Band. The event also includes a Gospel stage; Youth Entertainment Pavilion; a Health & Wellness Pavilion; a Youth Entrepreneurship Zone; a Historical Village; and so much more. The location of the festival is 400 Washington Avenue, located in Towson, Maryland.
It seems like quite a few festivals are coming up this month on my calendar. The 21st Annual Jazz Preservation Festival will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2023 from noon to 7 p.m. at Westminster Church, located at 400 I Street SW in Washington, D.C.

It will be open from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. Enthusiasts of local wines, and fans of great local festivals, are invited to enjoy the beautiful grounds of the Farm Museum. They can explore delicious, local wine while shopping from juried artisans and dancing to live music. This festival is located at the Carroll County Farm Museum. The address is 500 S. Center Street in Westminster, Maryland.
Changing the subject, my buddy, comedian Howard G, will have a comedy roast on Saturday, September 16, 2023 at Café 12, located at 5627 Reisterstown Road.
