The show at the strathallen Grill Sept 16 with; George Caldwell on paino, Sabu on bass, Tony Hiler on Drums, Herb Smith on Trumpet & Whitney Marchelle on vocals was a great show. Sorry you missed it!

I did some of my new orignals from my new cd that will be coming out soon. Thanks for posting my event. I also want to thanks the very full crowd that came to support us that night it was a memorial event of tributes also to sarah, billie, Amy winhouse and frank sinatra.
