New York... New York!

Gads...I have fallen behind in updating the blog...sorry. We have been SO busy. Since last here, we have completed our 2012 season and are well into our 2013 season. In fact...we just returned from a trip to Saugerties, New York. Those of you who know me know I am hardly ever at a loss for words...well these wonderful people of Saugerties got me! They treated us like we were royalty!!! AND I feel as though I've known them ALL my life. What a wonderful experience AND postcard perfect community. The best part...they invited us back again for next year. Woo Hoo! Road trip anyone?

WE SURVIVED HOT AUGUST NIGHTS!!!


We had a wonderful week of performances every day (sometimes 2 per day). Our audiences were generous with their applause and that just seemed to energize us even more. Here I am with Darren Dowler, the lead singer with Paul Revere & the Raiders. We opened for them in Sparks and what a show they put on. AND...nice guys to boot!

Stay tuned...more updates, photos, & videos to come.

Now it's off to Minden for their Show 'n Shine and Sock Hop!

Subject: Thanks Again!!!!!


I just want to thank you once again for such a GREAT performance at our 50th anniversary party Saturday night. The consensus is that "Route 66" was the highlight of the evening.
