Kole Notes Winter 2014

It has been much too long a time since I’ve sent out a Kole Notes letting everyone know what is going on in my career and also Gardner’s and my lives…
It has as always been a wonderful exciting year starting with the Washington Mardi Gras Extravaganza through performing in the New Orleans Superdome with strings for 2000 people this past November…Also in November I did a show on a piano that is to be auctioned off that was autographed by Sir Paul McCarthy and Ringo Starr the only living members of the Beatles…Quite an honor to be the only person to perform on this unique piano…
France this past September was as always just fantastic…Did some concerts and in between did a lot of visiting friends at the vineyards in Beaune (Burgundy) and Bordeaux…As always the audiences are so very responsive and the food and wine so very good…
JazzFest was as always a real kick…(See the attached photos) The audience was a killer and my septet played so very well as they also did at the French Quarter Festival for some 3,000 screaming folks and fans…
I did a fundraiser for the Southwest Florida Symphony in Fort Myers Florida and one for the Rapides Symphony Orchestra in Alexandria, Louisiana…Speaking of Symphonies, I’ll be performing with the Rapides Symphony on September 17th and am waiting for dates with the Southwest Florida Symphony and also the Taipei Philharmonic Orchestra…
I’ll be doing a solo concert tour in the Pacific Northwest in September which I’m really looking forward to as well as some dates in France, Belgium and possibly Germany in June…
Our annual Jazz on the Bayou Fundraiser that we do here at Chateau Kole was a real success…After expenses we were able to distribute $81.000 to our designated charities…I’m aiming at being able to distribute $100.000 in March of 2015…I’m looking for two more $5,000.00 sponsors to make my goal of $100,000…
Below is a link to an article that was just in the paper that I thought that you might like to look at…There’s a great photo of Gardner and a wonderful story about what we’ve been doing with our lives these past years…
Keep in touch and do have a merry Christmas and a Happy and most of all a Healthy 2015…
Speaking of Christmas, if you’re in need of a few stockings stuffers try one of my CD’s or DVD’s…You can order them at www.RonnieKole.com and I’ll autograph them to you or whomever you’re giving them to…
