Pipe & Tabor had the pleasure to work with Javier Pena on the recent production “For Once In My Life.” It’s a document about The Spirit of Goodwill Band by Jim Bigman and Mark Moormann. about a band assembled from workers at a main Goodwill Industries location in Miama, Florida, and the triumphs they experience through the power of music. Those that see and hear the band experience their joy for the music they play, and are changed for the better by the experience. There was even a guest appearance by Emilio Estefan Jr and the Mayor of Miami. It will be shown on PBS February 1, 2011 across the country at 10pm. Consult your local listings for the exact time and date in case it’s not consistent from broadcaster to broadcaster. You will also be able to purchase the movie on iTunes on February 2, 2011, and later at their website: www.4onceinmylife.com when it is ready to sell on both DVD and BluRay. We are thankful and have been blessed to even play a small part in this story. Check it out and you will be as well! You can read Goodwill’s press release here. **Locally on OPB, it will be shown Sunday February 6th at 10:30pm.

This summer, one of Pipe & Tabor’s creative’s, Brian Gage and his wife Diana, went fishing up in British Columbia at their client’s lodge (Sund’s Lodge). While there, they had the trip of a life time and got to share part of it with a very lively adventurer, Mary L. Peachin. On the boat Mary told us tales of swimming with sharks to study them, Bungie Diving, sky diving, pilot, etc. (all at the ripe young age of 60/70-something?)… but one of the biggest tales of fish-lore was to come. Read more about the whole adventure at her online adventure magazine, Peachin & Peachin.
Last week we took some time to just ‘hang out’ at our client Stereotypes Audio’s retail location. Owner Teri Inman recommended a great Dunkle from Garrison’s Wine’s next door (Heater Allen in McMinnville, OR) and we kicked back and listened to some great vinyl on the new Rega Osiris Integrated Amplifier fed from a Rega P7 turntable. We were also excited to hear that they were going to get in the new Rega DAC to integrate great sound into a computer based system (can we buy that and call it a ‘work write off’?)
