February 17th, 2019


Hey, Thanks for checking in!!!!
Early the very first morning of 2018, I had a very powerful feeling that changes were in my future. Within days, this premonition (of sorts), began…and continues, to be quite accurate.

By mid-January, an interesting employment opportunity surfaced… an offer which I accepted. This was only the first of many changes yet to come.

First and foremost, Charleen and I began a new chapter in our lives, as we welcomed our first grandchild, Edward David.

In order to create space in our lives for these new opportunities and responsibilities, I’ve had to step away from a few projects such as the “What about Jazz” article that I had written for the North Coast Voice magazine for over 10 years.

Just this past week, I prepared the following announcement, which was then posted to the Facebook.com/facevaluemusic.

As this chapter, which contains many fond memories, comes to a close…the next eagerly awaits to be written.

“Dear Friends and Followers,
After much consideration, the members of Face Value have decided that the time has come to pursue separate musical paths. Though this may come as a surprise, rest assured this was not a decision made in haste, nor one containing any element of ill will.

We cannot find the words to express the immense amount of gratitude we feel towards those of you who have shared your time, laughter and love of music with us over these past 7 years. We’ve been blessed to have shared your friendship, as well as one another’s, and countless fond memories created, both on and off stage.

We also wish to extend our most sincere appreciation to the many fine establishments who have invited and entrusted us to perform for their guests.

We each hope to see you again very soon, as life leads us upon this ever-changing musical journey. So, for now…as always…Thanks for Listening!...and of course…All Drink!!


Entering their 8th year as, “The Face Value Duo”, Don and Rich will continue to perform at many of our North Coast’s finest establishments. We will continue to post their schedule, photos and events on this page, and now at Facebook.com/DonPerrySaxman. If, for any reason, a new page must be created, we will be sure to provide plenty of notice, so that the transition will be as smooth and simple as possible.

Thanks Again! And God Bless.”

Charleen and I have been blessed to have made so many friends through my involvement with music, and these relationships continue to provide opportunities to make music in a variety of settings and ensembles.

Please be sure to watch the schedule page on this site or visit my recently activated Facebook page: Facebook.com/DonPerrySaxman to follow the Face Value Duo or to find out just what else might be cooking.

Something that will be heating up this summer for certain, will be the creation and performance of some of my own music… a dish which has been on the back burner for far too long now.

The 2019 schedule will be somewhat lighter than in recent years but I am committed to providing enjoyable, memorable performances for musicians and listeners alike….See you soon!

As always, Thanks for Listening!
Don
