Long time, no blog is what it is! I've been altogether too busy living life on life's terms . . . and performing. My schedule has been crazy this year with a great number of weddings at beautiful local venues like the Joslyn Art Museum, Magnolia Hotel, Georgetown Club, TipTop Ballroom at the Paxton, Grande Manse, and more—even one outdoors in Bellevue's Sokol Park with Ryan and Kristin Gentry, a great couple I am now privileged to know. Add to that a diverse group of corporate events. For Novartis's Annual meeting, at the Embassy Suites in Lincoln, a tropical themed event for around 600 people, I brought along Charlie and the Fez Kings to back me with surf/swing music of the '50s and provide their own brand of Jimmy Buffett fun. Other corporate events this year included annual awards dinners for PRC and Northwestern Mutual. Late last year, the Durham Museum invited me to be the featured entertainer for Christmas at Union Station performing holiday favorites in front of the magnificent tree. And lastly, I am so grateful to the folks at the Omaha Press Club, who made it possible for me to put in a cameo at this year's show at the Mid-America Center, performing "There Used To Be A Ballpark," that great old Sinatra number with lyrics adapted poignantly to pay homage to one of the greatest of old ballparks, Rosenblatt Stadium.
