My schedule is steadily getting full and I have to say that I've been so blessed to play some very special gigs. I'm really excited for what the future holds and many surprises are in store, some I can talk about and others that are still in the first stages of planning…
This past weekend, I played two shows. One was a backyard concert hosted by my good friend Lisa Bell. I do have to say that Lisa's backyard stage provided the perfect setup for an acoustic set but I also had to pull out the electric guitar and rock it just a little. Lisa and her guests were so gracious and accommodating. I am so blessed to have been able to play this venue and I look forward to collaborating again in the future!
On Sunday, I also got to play a set at Colorado Connected 3. Some performers who shared the same stage include: DJ Cavem, DJ Skip Rip, Mike Wird, Babah Fly, Kayla Marquee, American Dread, and Zanib, to name a few. This very special event was hosted by 180 Street Outreach and held for the purpose of raising awareness regarding homeless youth.
Since working with the youth and uplifting and edifying them has always been a major passion of mine, playing this event was a no-brainer. I'm so thankful that I got to be part of this line-up and so grateful for the opportunity to lend the Melissa Ivey brand to 180 Street Outreach.
If you haven't come out to see me yet, there's plenty of opportunity coming up! My next shows are September 24th and October 1st. The upcoming October 1st show is a really special one as I celebrate my birthday amongst friends and family at Maze Haus in Denver, CO. Many surprises are in store, so please join us! It would be my utmost pleasure to embrace you with music, hugs, and Gypsy love. Won't you join me at an upcoming show?
