At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: --I really love olives. I mean, more than is probably normal. That has nothing to do with DC, but--I really love olives.
--Although I often get asked if I am related to Paul Shaffer (of David Letterman fame), I am not. However, we did meet once at an event at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA
--A first: just a few weeks ago, I performed at a rally/sing-along for Peace and Hope on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. To sing standing on those steps looking out over the crowd and the reflecting pool, with the Washington Monument in the background was profoundly moving. It's good to know that, 30 years into a career, there can still be some "firsts" that you never anticipated.
