Notes from Michelle – Fall 2018

Post 14 of 60

Welcome to Autumn! That’s what we used to call it in Detroit anyway! It has been a wild ride since summer. We did my 60th birthday show in September and raised a lot of money for kids who are being loved and cared for by the amazing nurses at Check out what they do. These angels not only care for the children who are very sick, but makes their long time in the hospital better with special wishes that are granted by these sweet nurses. I got on a plane the next morning for three weeks in Paris for my annual writing trip and am off to New York at the end of this week for more of the same. The band and I are getting ready for our 10th Annual Benefit Concert to feed the hungry (benefitting which will be held on November 29th at 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley, CA. It’s always a great time and a great way to take a break from the holiday madness and do something to help those in need while enjoying a night of great music. We will be releasing my new record ST. MARY’S, which we are all excited to share with you. It is SO much fun playing with my talented band; Graham Patzner, Jeremy Lyons, Papa Bear, Anton Patzner, Mike Pinette, Lewis Patzner and Will Lawrence. We have a blast rehearsing, making music and bringing it to you…so come on out November 29th. Tickets are on sale now at In the last 9 years we have fed 3.5 million people, an impact only made possible with all of your help. We have the fall to get ready for our last show of the year and then I’m off to Munich and Paris to end 2018.

Thank you for supporting the music and all we do. It is an honor to be able to do this work and I am always grateful for the love and support of all of you who attend our concerts, buy music and help the causes that I care so much about. In this time of such political unrest, it is each of us taking some positive action to help those in need that makes it possible to still remember the “thousand beautiful things” we have to be grateful for.

Spread the love,
