Our dog Sadie had a great time performing for Homeward Bound, McMinnville’s own no-kill animal shelter. The concert/fundraiser/auction was held at the stunning Coeur de Terre Vineyard. The back up band included Mike Strickland on piano along with guest musicians Ellen Whyte and Tobaj.
The set list featured all animal songs including:
You Ain’t Nothin’ But A Hound Dog
How Much is that doggy in the window?
Baby Elephant Walk
Here’s a video of some of Sadie’s highlights!

Here’s a solo piano version of Mike’s original piece “Anthem”. He has it fully orchestrated and recently debuted it with the Salem Pops Orchestra.
Another original piece, a boogie-woogie entitled “Big Train Boogie”. You can just see that train comin’ round the bend.
