He welcomed athletes and friends who had come in from as far away as Alaska with a surprise performance by one of the musical artists who’s talents grace the Further soundtrack. Marin County California singer songwriter Jerry Hannan played a spectacular campfire set under the stars including an unlikely duet with TGR boss man Steve Jones.
