PERFORMANCES in 2008

58.  December 28th.  "TA" performed at Martina's Annual Christmas party. 
We had a blast performing at this holiday party.  Everyone was really great and
we look forward to next years party.  This gig was unplanned but it was so
much fun.  Really easy going.  "Simply Comfortable".  It was an Acoustic set. 
Great way to end the year 2008.  Thank You Martina for inviting "Tomorrow's Alliance".
57.  December 23rd.  "TA" was mentioned on the "Ray Hannania" Radio Show. 
Ray has worked or works for the SouthTown News, Chicago Sun Times,
Chicago City Hall reporter, WLS, WCEV, WJJG, Huntington News, Comcast, etc. 
Thank You Ray.   
56. December 2nd. "TA" performed at Westmont's High School Literary and
Music Festival and a Memorial for Mrs. Ford.  It was great with a big turn out. 
There were three local book authors who described why, how and what it takes
to write.  Their personal experiences that go into their stories.  Poetry reading
that was awesome by WHS students.  There was even a piece of writing that Mrs.
Ford actually wrote last year about her realization and experience of the Civil Rights
movement of the 1960's.  Man that was great!  She was really cool.  The night had
great music from terrific singers that go to WHS.  Regarding "TA", Jeff was great
as usual.  Austin sat in to play the bongos for "TA" and he was right on.  Thank you
Austin Gorman.  Jimi was able to play with us.  He has been studying for college
finals that are schedued next week.  It's that time of year.  He got a 10 out of 10 on
his bio test and felt good about joining us at this tribute gig.  Jimi also wanted to honer
Mrs. Ford.  Jimi really wanted to sing our song, "Concert of A Lifetime" to honor his friend,
Mrs. Ford.  It was important to him to be with us at this performance.  "TA" sang for
the first time in public, our new song, "RECIPRICAL".   "TA" dedicated our song
"CONCERT OF A LIFETIME" to Mrs. Ford.  "Tomorrow's Alliance was honored to sing
at this important event.  We will miss Mrs. Ford.  We recieved sad news yesterday,
THE DAY BEFORE THIS EVENT that Mrs. Connie Ford has passed away.  She was ill
 from cancer.  "TA" was honered to be part of this fund raiser for Mrs. Ford.  It was a
powerful night, somber mood but the great MC, Mr. Ratcliff got us through the night
 with his up beat messages.  Mrs. Ford was a vital person at Westmont High School. 
She was loved by the entire school.  At the end of this night, while her WHS family
was leaving the event, a few of us music performers sung a cover tune called
"Knocking on Heavens Door" dedicated to Mrs. Connie Ford.  The entire staff did
a wonderful job.  Isais Felipe organized the Fund Raiser.  Great Job to all. 
Thank You for inviting us.  GOD BLESS HER FAMILY. Arthur
    
55. November 9th.  
My Uncle Joshua's Memorial was held this night. 
My Uncle Josh passed away April 2008 in Florida.  He was 41 years old. 
His 42nd Birthday would have been November 11th, 2008.  On Veterans Day. 
All his friends and our family members came out to celebrate Uncle Josh's life. 
Their was a cool DVD prepared showing my uncle's life as a student and professional
dancer in the 1980's.  His teacher during that time prepared the DVD.  The DVD
showed the hard work and the professionalism that goes into dance.  The hard work
Uncle Josh and his colleagues go through to make us feel the particular piece of dance 
we're watching.  Jimi and I walked away with more appreciation for the world of dance
and the people that make it look so easy.  It's not!  It takes lots of training, dedication,
 and work.  Austin joined us and played the Congas.  Austin did fantastic.  Like old times. 
Nicole took pictures.  Nicole is Great.  We played a few songs including
"Concert of a Lifetime".  Tio Josh's friends and our relatives loved the music. 
It was really cool to meet relatives Jimi and I didn't remember.  The last time
we met we were really little kids.  Uncle Josh brought us together.  My uncle's
friends were really great.  They really, really loved my Uncle Josh.  My brother
Jimi and I thank everyone for being part of this wonderful night.  We tied notes of
 special messages to loved ones that have passed away to the balloons. We then
went to the Pent House roof top in Downtown Chicago where Uncle Josh hung out
as a young person and released the balloons.  Dozens and Dozens of balloons floating
into the brisk night sky.  Most of the ballons floating among the skyrises of Chicago
and a few floating over Lake Michigan.  What a magical night.  Jimi and I will have
to write a song about this special experience.  What a night.  To Uncle Josh! 
Thank You to all that shared this sad but also wonderful night.  Arthur and Jimi 

54. November 1st.
Nicole's Birthday Party was Great!   All her good friends came 
out to celebrate.  Nicole has really nice friends.  Thank You to Nicole's entire family
who are all terrific.  Also, "TA" was pleased that Anita, Rich and Erica came out to
celebrate this night.  "TA" is honored to have performed at Nicole's party and we really
enjoyed the night.  Lots of fun.  Even Lita and Papa came to celebrate Nicole's Birthday. 
Jimi and I appreciate Nicole for all she does for us.  Zach Swiec actually played the
Bongos for "TA" and he performed the Drums on the song we wrote together a few,
few years ago, "Concert of a Lifetime".  Brian was right on!  Great!  This was a
fantastic night.  We had a "packed house".  Nicole is so cool and we were honored
 to perform for her friends.  Thank You to all that came to the Party. 
"TOMORROW'S ALLIANCE" really loves Nicole and we are so pleased
she enjoyed herself.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY NICOLE!  Jimi and Arthur         
53. October 31st.  "TA's" 2nd Annual Halloween Door to Door Jam Session.

52. October 26th.  Pumpkin Harvest Festival. 
Pumpkin Harvest Festival was Fun. 
"TA" thanks Larry for the invite.  All the acts made us proud to be able to share
the same stage with them.  On a personal note, Great Job Ryan.  He did a solo
act.  Not that any other act did less, it's just good to see an old friend come a long
way.  Thumbs up to all.  Many thanks to the Jaycees, Lion Club, Westmont Chamber
of Commerce and Westmont's Special Events.  Great stage!  Great sound equipment.

group had their outing.  Have a Heart Foundation had their annual summer get together. 
We were asked if we would perform for their event and we did.  Jimi and I had a great time
and are so pleased everyone attending had a good time and loved our music.  This is the
first time they had music at one of their events.  Jimi and I are so proud to have
performed for this fantastic group.  A group of men and women who have been
given a second chance of life.  This was a life lesson.  You really need to enjoy l
ife and that life is wonderful.  Also, TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH!  Don't forget to
tell the people in your life that you love them and appreciate them.  Everyone at
this event treated us so well.  What a bunch of Great people.  They even fed us.
