Yep… Jackson Danger is going to attend the London School of Guitar Workshop on Monday, August 6th, in Park City. Sarah and I are pretty darn proud of that boy!
He has really worked hard the last couple of years developing his guitar skills. When he was accepted to this workshop in May, we all jumped up and down and hooted.
The workshop schedule is pretty intense beginning right after the evening registration. An introduction party begins with great food, and performances from special guests. Afterward, Jackson, Sarah and I will be able to meet the instructors and get a feel for what they will be teaching during the week. After all the guests scoot back down to the valley, the students will have an open mic jam session. Jackson is really pumped up about it.
He thinks it will be great to get a feel for what the other students already know and how advanced they are. Many of the students are much older than he is. (I think he might be a bit nervous… but we know he’s ready and will do just great the entire week.)
Milagros Mexican Food restaurant was closed on July 4th so we could participate in Provo, Utah’s annual independence day, Freedom Festival celebration.
The employees, friends and family of Milagros joined hands and marched in the traditional Freedom Festival Grand Parade…. manning a giant helium balloon.
For many years, my wife, the kids and I participated in the parade festivities by sitting in comfortable lawn chairs and on blankets at the curb, under large, cool shade trees. Little did we know that someday we would sign up to participate in the long walk from the top of University Ave, east on Center street to finish at the 9th East intersection.
It’s quite a walk for a large group, especially with young kids… who were real troopers and hung in there till the end. See their smiling faces!
Years and year ago… before I was born, (in the “dark ages” of my mom’s era,) the parade floats were sponsored and made by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The parade was simply called “The Fourth Of July Parade.”
Each Stake in the Provo area were assigned to provide two floats. Those assignments were to various wards each year. Together, ward members donated their time and talents to building and manning floats, which depicted the theme of the celebration.
Of course, included were the traditional “Queen’s” floats that carried the royalty from each city in the area. (They still do that goofy wave.) Bands from all of the local high schools participated also. At that time, commercial floats were unheard of…. or at least not allowed.
Wow! Milagros’ Jackson Danger has been invited to perform at the Grand Opening of the new Utah Valley Convention Center in historic downtown Provo, Utah. We are very exited that Jackson has this opportunity to share his talent on May 12, 2012. The new building is at 220 West Center Street (Freedom Blvd. and Center.)
He will be preforming at 2:30 p.m. and we here at Milagros will be cheering him on.
Take a look at Jackson Danger’s new poster. It was done especially for the performance by our graphic designer, Andy Barlow. I’m sure you’ll agree, he does an amazing job.
Jackson has been sharing his music with the Milagros customers nearly every Friday and Saturday night since it opened in 2010. He loves singing the old songs from the 60s and 70s. He has recently put us a new You Tube video called “Rebecca” which we think is one of his finest musical numbers. (You can view it at the bottom of the page.) Read More→
