Well, Happy New Year everyone!
Merry Christmas Darling: Carpenters’ Christmas was a resounding success on the west coast. Loved Northern California and Oregon – absolutely beautiful! Everyone at Cher-Ae Heights Casino and Spirit Mountain Casino went out of their way to make sure we were well looked after. Our audiences were wonderful!
January hit us with a bang with We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered shows in Boston at the Company Theater, in the wake of a massive snow storm! It took planes, trains, and automobiles to get the whole band there but we made it and had a ball with the loyal Carpenters’ fans who braved the cold and snow. We were thrilled to have Lennie DiMuzio and his family attend the show. Lennie worked in artist relations for Zildjian Cymbals for 40+ years and gave Karen Carpenter her endorsement deal!!
We just returned from beautiful Michigan and the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts. A gorgeous facility with a fabulous team and two lovely audiences. We’d love to go back there with our Christmas show! Even met a gentleman who was a colleague of Frank Pooler, who taught Karen and Richard at Cal State and is the lyricist of “Merry Christmas Darling”. WOW!

Next up is Isle of Capri Casino in Lake Charles, LA, for Valentine’s and we’re booked at the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den for April 12th. This just in: BB King Blues Club in NYC for April 13th!! Very excited to play this legendary club.
Wishing everyone a great new year, a short winter, and happy, healthy times.
As always thank you for your love and support,
