Lingering in Ptown. I still have business!

I am still in Ptown. LOL! I can't seem to leave. I was supposed to leave by now...but...
Well, business is still good for me here. My shows are doing well off Season. I kinda wanna leave now, but hey, people are unemployed in this country and I still have steady work so far without having to board planes and travel or check into hotels etc... Who am I to walk away from this gig right now?

Thanks to everyone who has come to see me in the off Season! It's nice to have a job in one place!

R.I.P. MARY TRAVERS

As a little kid one of my earliest influences in music was Peter, Paul & Mary with their songs "Puff The Magic Dragon" "Blowin' In The Wind" and "Leavin' On A Jet Plane."

Many many years later she was on the same airplane as I was. I wanted to say something but I was too shy and felt like everybody says the same thing to her. I was just so happy to be on the same plane that she was on. And later I watched her at baggage claim with her assistant. It made me happy inside to know that I got a view of one of my idols in real life. She was cool.

Last week in Provincetown. California I'm coming home...

My last weekend to perform in Provincetown, September 17, 18, 19 and maybe 20 (if there are enough people in town).

I leave Wed Sept. 23 to San Antonio to visit Mom for a while then eventually back to my new digs in Los Angeles, California. I was only there for 1 month in May before I had to hit the road again.

Like Joni sings..."California I'm coming home..."
Soon I'll be back to THE ENTERTAINMENT CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!

FRIDAY MORGUE / SATURDAY 3 STANDING O's

This past Friday night September 4, we had the worst crowd ever of the whole Season. Friday nights everywhere always seem to be tricky for some reason. I don't know why but this seems to be universal. My audience this Friday in particular was like the worst of the whole Season. It was like they weren't breathing. The bartender assured me that they were mesmerized by me. I try not to take the quietness personally but inevitably that's what happens. It makes me so nervous and insecure. I need to learn how to overcome these feelings.

The following night, Saturday, was a different story altogether. The crowd was on fire and I think I did some of my best singing. I got 3 Standing Ovations! It was great! Anyway I recorded this show. I gotta figure out how to upload it here so you can hear it.

In the audience was one of the guys from 'Naked Boys Singing' with his Mom and teenage sister. His sister Paige was excited to know that 'Fashionista' was my song because her friend in cheerleader competition won World Cup Championship and my song was part of the music they used. This makes me so happy! I'm also thrilled that I'm in good company as I heard one of my idols - Sylvester is in the medley as well singing his song 'Stars.'

Check out these cheerleaders. They are so good. They won Championship! 'Fashionista' is in the medley.


WORLD CUP 1st Place! 2008

It's official! "BRING IT ON FIGHT TO THE FINISH" is being released and I'm on the soundtrack! I have not seen the movie yet but I'm anxious to see how it's used. This is the 5th installment to these cheerleader movies.
