Hard work and SPECIAL THANKS to so many talented people in O’Town, Orlando, FL
I appreciate the fact that so many friends have shown support of what I have been doing in the central Florida music scene and for your comments on social media.

I would like to start by thanking the following people for their support and hard work in making the new music releases possible over the past years.

Loch Ness music video tells Nessie story
This production has been in the works for decades and is soon to be released as a “single” by the Parlor Jones Project. The Loch Ness music video tells Nessie story in lyrics set to the video in teleprompter karaoke style.
Fourteen hundred years ago, the myth of Nessie sightings began along Urquhart Bay in Scotland. Is it a myth or reality? Although extensive searches have been conducted with very expensive cameras and sonar devices used, the vast area that connects the many lochs makes it virtually impossible to conclusively rule out her existence. If she were a sunken ship on the lake bottom it might be one thing but a moving object would be entirely another thing.
So when one wonders what food source would keep her alive, one must ask if she could live this long without being seen or caught. Many have claimed to spot her and some photos claim to be proof but that still remains the mystery.
In this music production, Parlor Jones keeps the folklore alive with this intimate uplifting song that pleads with Nessie to “show her face to us before they call you fraud”, “you’ve held out on us long enough to make them all applaud”.
The complete song and video are set for release this spring just in time for the tourist season in Scotland so that all can sing this song to her from the tour boat cruises along Loch Ness.
Watch for the video on Youtube as well as the song on streaming music sources like Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon and many others worldwide. You can purchase the song on CDBaby directly as well with the option to hear the entire song before you buy and the release date will be posted in the days ahead.
The musicians are Parlor Jones on guitars and vocals, Sandy Holcomb on lead vocals, Mike Sundae on keyboard synths and Joey Dunlop on bass guitar. The recording was done in Orlando, Florida at Secret Garden Studios and engineered by Parlor Jones. The words and music were written by Gary Davids.
Parody TV commercial about the benefits of Moon Salt.
TV Commercial Parody on Moon Salt vs Sea Salt
“Moon Salt”. Could it replace sea salt one day?
Sodium is a vital part of our chemical makeup and salt is a preservative as well as an integral part of our physical health. A balance is very important.
Order your “Moon Salt” today and get 2 for the price of one. Added bonus is the latest CD “A Mile In My Shoes” by Parlor Jones. The album contains 14 original songs.
Music stingers in this parody commercial are licensed by The Music Bakery.
Recorded and produced at Secret Garden Studios.

NOTE: The album “A Mile In My Shoes” is shipped within 48 hours of ordering unlike the Moon Salt for obvious reasons 🙂
Behringer B205D powered stage mini monitors review
In this video I give my review of the Behringer B205D monitors for live performances. The speakers only weighs 7 pounds and currently sell for about $200 each. They fit comfortably on stage using a microphone stand through the mount on the bottom of the speaker.
Each speaker has tone controls as well as three channels with separate volume and put levels. You also have a main output and a pass-through XLR connector.
The speakers are great for vocal monitoring on stage for reference. They will not deliver a deep bodied rich sound as larger cabinets would but that is to be expected from a 5.25 inch speaker.
I hope you enjoy watching this video and please subscribe to my channel as well as feel free to ask any questions or make any comments.
