Friday we threw another epic Acoustic-4-A-Cure benefit concert at a killer SF venue - The Masonic Theatre. I wasn't sure we'd be able to top it in our 2nd year but man did we ever! When James and I envisioned this we knew what we didn't want it to be - another stuffy charity event that you walked away feeling bummed out about. It's awesome to see that we've created the opposite - it's as big a party for the artists on stage as it is for the fans!
Rehearsal for Acoustic-4-A-Cure was amazing with Jerry Cantrell, James Hetfeld, Joe satriani, Chad Smith, Vic Johnson and myself. (along with some musicians to accompany us individually). It's going to be a night of some spectacular duets the way it shaping up now. Big surprises this year and for an amazing cause. We want to thank everyone in advance for their support! www.acoustic4acure.org
The pics say it all. I lost my voice early on like the beginning of the show ha ha. Not funny. The Redheads saved me again. The show actually was unbelievable – one of my favorites ever because of the fans and the Wabos lifetime dedication and commitment to the party and the music. I'm extremely happy with tonight's show even though it may be in the top three of my worst vocal abilities ever but I must say there were some magical moments that were in the top three best ever as well!!! Love love love them Redheads.
May is "Better Hearing and Speech" month, so this is a great time to raise awareness about hearing loss as well as for people to hear Sammy talk about the transformative process people go through when their hearing is restored.
Seeing these kids' faces' light up is just the most amazing experience. Throughout the day it took some getting used to, but once I started, we just were rolling!
Hey Redheads, Sammy here - The Circle just came off the first leg of the shows we're doing this year and I can't believe how great it went, it feels like we've been together for years. Well, I guess in some ways we have haha!
Today, people and organizations around the world are commemorating the 20th annual International Noise Awareness Day.
Last month, the World Health Organization released data that 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults are at risk for hearing loss due to unsafe listening practices.
Got to see my friend, Chef Rick Moonen, this past weekend in Vegas at the DLVEC. It was awesome to catch up and chat about everything he's been doing. One thing that blew my mind was the aging process his mixologist team is doin' with my rum. Very cool stuff used to create some really special drinks! More reasons for rum aficionados to love my rum! I highly recomend checking it out - more to come soon! - Sammy

Wow! What an awesome event! This place was packed to the brim and I'm so thrilled to part of this event. If you didn't catch the news about it earlier, you can see a clip from last year here: http://www.redrocker.com/news/sammys-beach-bar-rum-nightclub-bar-show
The day started off me and Jon Taffer walkin the red carpet and getting the show rolling with the ribbon cutting ceremony! Those are some real scissors right there.
