Mel and I had a super time performing practically in our own back yard. That’s how it feels in the intimate setting of Legend Distilling. I did find it difficult to concentrate with the delicious Smuggler’s Smokehouse fare wafting through my senses… not to mention the amazing view. Magical! I gave up and succumbed to […]
Casual Pairings was a great event! Wine Crush Market brought breads, mustards and a most curious pizza… Their products are made from, literally, wine crush. Grape seeds and skins are dried and crushed into powder form then made into all kinds of things. The results were unanimous: delicious! Mel and I had a great time […]

I finally had my first diva entrance thanks to my buddies, Sax Among Friends. I came in my roadie gear to set up early. Then went home and dressed to the nines! Well, when at the wine bar, only the best will do. And besides… when else am I going to wear my beautiful red […]
This was an amazing weekend full of music! It all started on Friday when I was asked to sing a set for the SOWINS’ “Earls Walks For You” FUNdraiser. I was thrilled! I got to work with my friend, Tim Tweed who took care of the DJ booth. We put together a set of walking […]
The Allan Crossley Duo featuring Yanti played this weekend at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery. The thunder rolled as we came up the driveway to set up our equipment but despite the rain, thunder and cold, we played from 1-4pm with only a few breaks so Allan could run his hands under hot water! Most everyone […]

This Fill-A-Bag* (*grocery bag) for $5 fundraiser for the Naramata PAC, starts in Yanti’s home in January and finishes up at […]
Today I witnessed several miracles of human nature: the caring staff at Village By The Station, the generosity of all the people who donated to bring Sax Among Friends in for this special Valentine’s celebration, and True Love. I watched some of these couples who were married for over 60 years care for each other […]
Today was so great! Sax Among Friends played a love filled set put together by Don Wade. Allan Crossley guest starred as pianist for this love-ly event. One of my students came to sing a song and she was so well received by this elder crowd some of them had tears! I just LOVE my […]
