The first month of this New Year has begun with a few private events, where I believe my audiences enjoyed not only the Neil Diamond songs but a bit of Dean Martin, Roger Miller and even some Sinatra. They seemed to know all the words and sang along. We all had a good time.
We had great crowds at the Metropolis in Arlington Heights, actually that was a sell-out, and then once again in Wisconsin Dells with good crowd participation, lots of photos being taken and interesting conversations after the shows.
Here’s our performance of Neil Diamond’s, “I’m a Believer”, from that show.
I have some of the easiest ways in the world to impress your significant other this Valentines Day.
