This past year I was proudly involved in recording a record from which the proceeds will provide hospitalized children with musical instruments and music therapy via the Dick Wagner “Remember the Child Fund”. The album called ‘ROCKSPELL’ was produced by iconic producer Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, John Lennon, Patti Smith, New York Dolls) and features the incredible talents of the Detroit Youth Choir backed by yours truly Jimmie Bones on keyboards as well as string and horn arrangements and my ace musical pals Garret Bielaniec (Alice Cooper ‘Detroit Stories’) on guitar, Johnny Bee Badanjek (Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, The Rockets, Edgar Winter, Alice Cooper) on drums, and Paul Randolph (Alice Cooper ‘Detroit Stories’, Mark Farner) on bass. Jack Douglas and co-producer Susan Michelson wished to create a joyous fusion of Rock n Roll, RnB, and Gospel which we recorded at Plymouth Rock Recording Company. The Detroit Youth Choir which won 2nd place on season 14 of ‘America's Got Talent’ and more recently Golden Buzzer Winners on ‘America’s Got Talent All Stars 2023’ bring the youthful spirit of Metro Detroit to classic hits. ROCKSPELL was considered for six Grammy nominations and is now nominated for ‘Outstanding National Recording’ in the 2023 Detroit Music Awards. The record is now available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Pandora, TIDAL, YouTube, Shazam by clicking https://ingrv.es/rockspell-48m-v as well as CD and Vinyl by clicking https://amzn.to/41i6luh
I am proud to have provided a performance in the SHAKE, RATTLE, & ROCK video series from the Dick Wagner "Remember The Child" Fund. In the program I performed a solo acoustic set of songs in which I focused on education about songwriters who have influenced so much. This new music video series features virtuoso musicians, with content produced especially for pediatric patients. Our videos are broadcast free of charge, directly into hospital rooms and care facilities for hospitalized children and their families to enjoy. Shake, Rattle & Rock provides music enrichment for the children and helps reduce the loneliness of isolation. We bring the healing power of music to life! Some of the other artists performing in the series are Suzi Quatro, Sandy Genarro, Micki Free, Brian Hardgroove, and Allison Loveyoy.

I got the idea from the fact that some of our production crew for the Kid Rock tour and many other tours are amazing musicians as well. I asked our video chief Bill Crooks who is a badass guitar player if he would like to grab some of the players and learn some of my stuff from Snakebit and Wandering and some covers and then go find some bars to play in on off nights of the Kid Rock 'American Rock 'n Roll Tour'. Mark Messina who has been my key tech and Stefanie Eulinberg's drum tech for many years is himself a great drummer who gigs regularly in and around the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Bill grabbed LED Tech/Camera Op, Keith Graves to play bass. Keith has in the past been a touring bass player for Jefferson Starship and Quicksilver Messenger Service. Check him out by clicking Keith Graves. Along with Bill Crooks on guitar is Chicago native Bryan Wilkinson who runs lasers for the tour. Bryan W. is himself a melodic alternative artist who you can check out by clicking Bryan W. You can also check out the guy who the band is named after by clicking Bill Crooks.
