neurofibromatosis cafe

A place to talk about NF, have fun and share.

Reggie and the Neville Brothers

How can I begin to tell you how much fun I had yesterday at the International Festival. The day stated out very well with meeting people who have seen me before. There where happy to take photos with me. I was remembered from last year. The food was terrific music was great. All types of music. I enjoyed the country music of course.

The best part of the evening was music from the Neville Brothers. Arron Neville. I actually got to meet the Neville brothers. A very big thank you to the Neville brothers for taking time to meet and take photos with me. Also thanks to my friends who joined us, Matt Jones, “The Tall One” and William Hughes, “The Smart One.” I said man I would love to meet the Neville brothers. Matt said, “I bet I could make that happen.” Well, he did and you see the photos as proof. I have to tell all of you I had the best time ever.

SEE PHOTOS OF CONCERT AND BACKSTAGE

It would be a really good thing if we could get a group together and do what I have been doing for a year. I can promise you it will change how people feel about NF, and you will feel better that you did it. Whether you have nf1 or nf2, it is a great thing to let people get to know who we are. I would really like my friend, Brian, to go with me some time. I really think people are more understanding now. It seems to me that people expect me to be there. How cool is that?!! Next stop, the “Art Car Parade!”

  3. Brian, Reggie met the Neville Bothers last night after their concert in Houston. We had spent the day having fun at the Houston International Festival then finished the night watching their concert. At the end of the concert, we just walked back and introduced ourselves and took photos with them. One of them asked for Reggie’s card! I haven’t seen Reggie since…probably a member of the group now.

  29. Reggie, I think it is so cool that you got to meet the Neville Brothers. I wonder if Charles Neville will be emailing you or not. He seemed sincere. What an incredible saxophonist? Is that a word?

  40. Hey Reggie! Just got back from my slap-dash trip to Denton to help Kimka (girlfriend) with her art show. You should check out her site at http://www.imbroglioglass.com, we’ll have to get her to donate something for the next auction.

    The Neville Bro pics looks great! That was SUCH a good time!! Also great pics of the jam at Lou’s afterwards. Is it just me, or does that banjo player looking strikingly like Brad Pitt?

    Looking forward to the next get together.

  43. Hey majorly famous DUDE!
    I just saw your full page ad in this week’s TIME magazing featuring your Just Ask campaigne. I am truly impressed and want your autograph when you have time for it.\\
    (I’m serious it could be worth someting someday/but that has nothing to do with it), I really wish I’d made it to the TNFF houston highlights party so we could have had a bidding contest over something really neat; like maybe a horny toad skull from Marfa on an ivory pedestaL.
    Well, it’s late (8PM) so I’m hittin the hay.
    Later!

    Bart,
    Reggie needs to stay sober during his trip!!! I’m sure the spots you had in mind might test his resolve. I may have to go with him to make sure he stays out of trouble.

    That’s great about the ad!!! I haven’t seen it yet. I guess it would help if I subscribed to TIME magazine. I’m not sure if the ad is in the newstand issues or just the ones that come to the home in the mail. In any event, I’m going to start checking mailboxes in my neighborhood tonight. Thanks for the heads up, Bart!

    The TIME mag came in the mail so I don’t know if it’s in the local newstands. It had your shirt but not your photograph like I was expecting. It is 5AM and I’m up but I guess that’s what happens when you go to bet at 8. Reggie, I bet you just went to sleep. You’ll have to get yourself ready for jetlag.

And believe me you don’t want to be like him. He is mean to me because I’m so popular and he is not. Someone always have to ask him his name. And it’s only 3 letters. So what does that tell you. Mine has 6 letters and I’m remembered. 8 letters if you go by Reginald.
