Bruce has always believed in supporting music for children. Most recently he shared his talents as consultant, guest lecturer and guitar teacher at Project: Experience, a multi-media music camp in Long Beach, Indiana. Bruce joined Steve Ball, Billy Romer, Adam Graham and Dawn Graham at a town picnic and benefit concert held Friday, July 5 at the Old School Community Center in Long Beach, Indiana, to kick off The Project: Experience Music Camp. The concert was the beginning of a weeklong music camp where young musicians learned about the music business, wrote and played their own songs, and cut a camp CD. The week ended with a campers' concert for family and friends.
For four Sundays in July
and August, Bruce performed with Steve Ball as The Bruce Hastell /
Steve Ball Project on the outdoor patio at The Red Arrow Roadhouse
in Union Pier, Michigan. Just ten miles from the Indiana / Michigan line
on Red Arrow Highway (Hwy 12), The Roadhouse is famous for great food
and a relaxing time. Dinner is served until 10:00 (Michigan time). The
crowd response was so fantastic that owners Tim and Jennifer Trout invited
them back after Labor Day for additional performances. Call the Roadhous
at 616.469.3939 or visit their web site at www.redarrowroadhouse.com
