As we all realize that another summer of vacations and sunny weather, (yes, sunny in Pittsburgh, which is not a usual thing) has come to an end, but we look with great anticipation of the Fall. Fall in Western PA is such a wonderful, cooler, colorful, time of the year. All the colors of Fall speak of warm cozy gatherings of friends and what better place could you find than David’s Music House to enjoy some really great java and pumpkin cupcakes or our House Cookies.

We will be brining some of the best performances back from our first year and many new faces as well. The man who started our very first Friday Night Concert, Andrew McKnight (http://www.andrewmcknight.net/) will be coming back this September, actually for a Saturday Night Concert. Andrew is a nationally known singer/songwriter of Americana/Folk Music and is a performer not to be missed. If you missed Andrew last Fall, you have another chance on Sept 24th.

September 24th is also the day for the DMH Team participation in a walkathon to raise public awareness and funding for the Alzheimer’s Association. If any of you already know, my mother Hannah Lindberg passed away in January of 2010 as a victim of Alzheimer’s disease. She suffered the living nightmare of Alzheimer’s for the last 3 years of her life. This is a terrible way to slowly slip from existence, as you are aware that you are beginning to suddenly have periods of time when you find your memory blank. Imagine the fear of suddenly becoming aware that you are living in a nursing home with others who are in worse stages of Alzheimer’s and realizing that you have have lost your identity and dignity of your life. The ONLY possible good thing one can say about losing your memories to Alzheimer’s would be when you get bad enough that you don’t really realize what is happening to you any longer.

Alzheimer’s is an issue that is increasing in numbers of victims exponentially, due to the amount of the population, the Baby Boomer generation, is coming of the age when Alzheimer’s begins One unique fact about the numbers of Baby Boomers is that it is also increasing the numbers of people who are being afflicted with Alzheimer’s at an earlier age. The Alzheimer’s Association has been the leading advocate of raising public and political awareness of the severity of this epidemic of our times. Over the next few years and decades, our nation will see this epidemic grow to staggering proportions and have a crushing effect on the world’s economy.

The DMH Team is looking for donations to contribute and will be walking Sept 24th in the morning in Peters Park. You can make a donation of any amount on our DMH Team Page. You can also contribute by purchasing our House Cookies, as we donate proceeds from them to the Alzheimer’s Association.

We will celebrate our participation that same evening with “An Evening with Andrew McKnight”. Be sure to come and hear this amazing entertainer in our Coffee House. You just can’t find this quality entertainment anywhere in the South Hills in a “Family Friendly, BIG Living Room” venue. Your support of these type of entertainment helps DMH continue to bring such quality entertainment to the South Hills.

We begin our September Friday Night Concert Series with an area band of amazingingly talented musicians called LocaL. Yes, they are a local band named LocaL! They are 4 talented musicians, (Leigh-Anne Yost (guitar, singer, songwriter), Lisa Weiss (singer), Kyle Ingram (guitar, singer, songwriter) and Zack DeFelice (percussion, vocals, guitar, songwriter), who will play many favorite songs your have heard and love as well as some of their original music.
