Met some really nice people tonight at Books, Beans, and Candles.  One person, Barbara, I found out is a Devotee of Bast!  Bast is my Matron Goddess, and I even wrote and recorded a song about her.  We had lots too chat about, and I look forward to sharing and learning more with her. 

Julia is a recent resident of Bham and is a Reiki Master.  If you are in the area, make sure to check her out at: www.jreuter.com.  She’s a very sweet soul.

Special thanks to Mitchell for having me.  And also to all the nice guys that helped me carry my equipment in and out of the store.

Tallahassee concert July 7, 2011

I had a wonderful evening meeting new friends and hugging one or two long lost friends this evening at the concert.

It was held inside an art district area that used to be old warehouses by a railroad.  All of the buildings have been renovated and brightly painted and turned into art galleries, theaters, and other types of creative spaces.  I loved it!

I look forward to coming back and exploring when I have more time.

I’d like to thank the Pagan co-op that hosted the concert at “Divine Union”, and thanks to River for helping me organize it.  A very special thanks to the very sweet Sheri and Iman for giving me a place to spend the night.

I snapped the photo after the concert on my phone infront of Divine Union.  Left to Right: River, Sheri, Iman, Rob.

Concert Reviews

I recently did a concert for the Circles in the Woods CUUPS Chapter at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tampa.  The organizers, Ollis & Mary were very sweet in sending me these blurbs about the concert, and I thought I’d share:

“Alexian has such a variety of music that evokes feelings and emotions that range from happiness and humorous to thought-provoking. I especially enjoy the stories that he shares about each song he has written.  It is amazing to me that he writes, composes, and then puts it all together himself. No doubt his educational background at Boston’s Berklee College of Music is an asset, but it is the obvious labor of love that shows in his music.  I thoroughly enjoy his concerts and can’t wait to do it again!”

Facilitator – Circles in the Woods CUUPS (Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans), Tampa FL

“Alexian’s interactive approach to his music gets the audience up and moving!  I loved the “Circle of Power” Circle casting song! It got everyone out of their chairs and moving to the music right from the beginning.  I mean – even people who won’t dance can walk in a circle – right?  And “Listen to the Wind” just touches the heart of the soul and carries you away with the breeze.  I can’t wait for his next CD!”

The Magic Slide & Tour Planning on my Birthday!

Merry Meet Rabid Pagans!
Today is my birthday and I’ve had a great one! There are literally HUNDREDS of posts on my Facebook from people wishing me a joyous day, and you all have made it one!

I am preparing to leave for the Phoenix Phyre gathering in Central Florida (Lakeland, FL) on Wednesday, and I will be there through Sunday. During the festival, I will be reading cards for people and also teaching one of my favorite workshops, “The Magickal Voice”. The workshop is scheduled for Thursday afternoon at the gathering.

Friday evening, April 8th, I will be debuting my new dance music along with some old favorites at my concert at Phoenix Phyre. The entertainment starts at 8:30pm with me hosting an open mic, followed by my concert.

If you can’t make it to the gathering for the full time, there are weekend passes available, as well as an evening pass from 6pm to 11pm for only $15. This includes my concert! So come out and see me!

For more information about Phoenix Phyre, please visit: http://www.phoenixfestivals.com

If you do plan on coming out to the concert, or if you just want to have some fun… check out the new line dance that my dear friend and covenmate, Ayanna, created for my birthday! It’s for my dance remake, “Cool to Be a Witch 2.0”!

I have posted the video right here on my website under Videos, or you can always go directly to my YouTube site at: http://www.youtube.com/lordalexian

Spring is here, and I’m ready to travel! I’ll be calling you all to set up concerts (and house concerts as well) all around Florida during the months of late April, May & June!

Then I’m already starting to plan a tour all the way up from Florida through the MID-WEST and back during July! So if you live in Northern FL, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Arkansas, or Missouri, etc please contact me! This is your chance to get me to come perform live for you and your friends!

I am also contemplating a tour UP the East Coast all the way North in October! What Witchy pleasures await me up there?

Don’t be shy! Contact me… I don’t bite…. too hard. (Unless you want me to!)

Bast Blessings!
Alexian

H2O Network Interview!
