Thanks for checking out this page. As of March 2018 I joined the band 'Aftermath' as lead guitar and supporting vocalist. The band has been an entertaining and highly regarded '60's experience act' for many years dating back into the 80's. If you can, catch a local show in 2019 by visiting Kim Pizzinos FB page for updates.
These videos are of some bands that I have been a part of over the years. I hope they will bring back some fond memories for the players and anyone else who remembers them.
I want to acknowledge my good friend Beth Salsbury for her wonderful singing and keyboard work on 'Journey of a Lifetime' and on 'Barb's song'. She co-wrote those two tunes with Carolyn Wolfe.
I hope that if you've read this far that you allow me to be a witness for what Jesus Christ has done in my life. Some of these videos show me when I was living strictly for myself. I had a lot of fun, no doubt, but over time I realized that my life really didn't count for much. I was not a very happy person even though I had an awesome supportive wife, a good job, and was playing music as part of my living. I somehow knew that I was missing it.
Long story short, I began to read the bible and ask God wisdom in what to do with the rest of my life. I had been saved back when I was 14 and I knew that God had never left me. He promises He will never leave, nor forsake you, and I have since learned that God keeps all of His promises.
My wife, Valerie, and I started going to church. Big step for me. I thought church was for 'perfect people'. It took some trial and error, but through prayer the Holy Spirit eventually led us to a church that was spirit filled, and the teaching is true to the word of God. That's real important, that the true word of God is being taught.
I learned that if I wanted to get close to God, to find out who He is, then I had to take the step to draw near to Him. I prayerfully studied the Word and prayed for discernment. I discovered that there were amazing teachers out there who could really help me to understand how to understand the true meaning of Gods word and to help me to grow in my Faith and wisdom. It's been a tremendous journey of discovering how awesome living for Christ can be. I know that the only way to truly experience joy and peace is to walk in the will of God, to find His will and His plan and to try to walk that out. Jeramiah 29:11 says that he has a good plan, and that it's to prosper, give hope and a future for each of us.
If God loves me, and He does, then He loves you too. All were created in his image for his pleasure. All will find peace and comfort when trusting his plan. John 3:16 tells us that God loves us so much that He sent his son (Jesus) in the flesh that whosoever believes on him (that he is the Christ) shall have eternal life. I hope that if you've never called upon the name of the Lord that you will do that today, while there's still time. God Bless and thanks for reading.
