An Open Stage Performance (Making Music with Tom And Michael Episode 2)

 Our 2nd episode of our Youtube musical reality show is uploaded and ready for your viewing consideration.

We take our act on the road, (at least up the road) for a 4 song performance at an open stage. 

If you want to skip the behind the scenes preparation, you can go to the 5:30 timestamp to see our concert.

Thanks for watching. 

Please "like and subscribe." 

Even if you don't want to.

(just kidding. But it does help.

Thanks again.

A Clean Slate

A clean slate.
A clean heart.
A fresh day.
A new start.
Yesterday,
behind.
Clear sight.
A clear mind.

Not Pretend - (By Tom Balistreri)

Many move through life and pretend,
that this time they have will never end.
Yet in Christ those passing through,
will have eternal life ever new.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas - (sung by Tom Balistreri)

It can't start too soon or end too late.

Thanks for listening.

Thanksgiving Pause

On this special day 
I give thanks,
because my meal 
is not beans and franks.
