them James Houston nephew to the Grammy Award winning Kenny Rogers whom had appeared on stage with Rogers in the years past as well as television shows
when Rogers fronted the Houston based super group First Edition.  Also bringing an enjoyable rhythm to the sound in prior years was Russel Fiedler, a Texas based
percussionist that added the Island sounds to the music via the Bongo and Djembey.  Gary has confirmed he will not be playing music on this cruise and has gone on
to say there will be no other musicians added to the cruise for the purpose of performing. All shows will be done by Carnival entertainment artists.

Tickets are still available through the cruise  link on Gary's website at http://www.garyhelmsmusic.com/cruise and the cost is cheaper for inside rooms due to rate
cuts for this cruise by Carnival Cruise Lines but they must be booked through Gary's web link for the rates to apply so your guided to the correct cruise administrator.

English Video Guru David Baker Was In Town For The Video Shoot!
Galveston, Texas land mark Melrose Pub was the location for English video director David Baker Saturday night.
Baker was in town to shoot Gary and the boys acoustic live performance along with interview footage for upcoming television and media use.

Baker will soon be shooting Gary's next few videos in the Nashville area as well as Dallas, Texas.  Baker states "I'd like to make it to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and
Cozumel with Gary and the guys but have to see if my schedule is clear next month before we can make that a certainty."

Look for Baker's work on Country Music Television Pulse.  His workload always keeps him moving with various country music stars and the upcoming and ongoing
Gary Helms projects allow him to expand his creativity more than some country artists videos allow for.  

"I enjoy working with David, he makes the shoot fun and still gets what he needs to keep the video interesting not to mention he's just a real good guy!" Gary quotes.
Gary also went on to say he had worked with Baker on other video productions in the past and was very pleased with the outcome.

Watch for new video hits from Gary Helms in the near future and stay connected here for the latest updates on Gary Helms, Texas Black Gold and David Baker.
