The month of July is a whirlwind of excitement for the Bloomer Brothers. This blog is just to enlighten our extended family (you) of the various activies we are embarking on this month. We decided July would be our time to take care of family, vacation, and writing.
1. I (Andy) have had two fun events in the past month...First, I was able to enjoy almost a week away with my beautiful wife in San Diego. I had never been to California, and after being there, I could live in San Diego for sure...perfect weather! We were blessed by so many opportunities while there, and I have included our room view that got upgraded as soon as we walked in the door (picture below). July also brings my birthday every year, and it is always a pleasure to see what God has blessed me with each and every step of the way as I look back on each year.
2. Hildee and Matt have been working in the studio a lot the past 2 weeks and it is going to be my turn this week to start laying down some phat bass lines. Hildee and Matt are also going to be taking the long awaited trip to the new Harry Potter Theme park this week. I'm sure there are going to be many stories, pictures, and even some unmentionables that come from this extravaganza.
3. Brink has taken the very brave and courageous plunge to go to Israel for 2 weeks. The places and stories that he has already shared have been sobering as well as inspiring for the rest of the band as we all would love to visit the Holy City of Jerusalem some day.
4. In between the days of writing and recording, David had the chance for a trip to Florida already and he is going to be going to a summer camp in Kentucky at the end of the month. He has been a huge part in the camp for years and is looking very forward to being a part of the activities once again this year.
So, just giving you a heads up on what we are doing for July. Please come visit us on Manic Monday every Monday at 7pm CST. I believe Hildee and I will be working on some bass stuff tomorrow night, and we would love to chat with you while we work.
As always, thank you for your help, and we would love for you each to tell a friend or two to help us get the name of Manic Bloom out to the masses even faster...also, please post on your facebook this week for your friends to like us...we always love you for your help. Thanx.
