There’s a chill in the air and though it’s sad to see summer go it’s time to gear up for a busy holiday season. For today though let me tell you what has been happening through the summer and early fall! We had a couple fun shows at Mohegan Sun in CT and the Cicada Festival at Mt. Gretna, PA with We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered. Fantastic sell-out crowds and wonderful Technical and Hospitality teams. We made some new friends!
We released our CD for the Carpenters’ shows entitled We’ve Only...
Well it’s a hot one in Connecticut! We’ve been having a great summer after a most dire winter. Have been very focused on the We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered show. July saw us at the Wolf Den at the Mohegan Sun – always a favorite spot to play and a chance for Mark and I to see our hometown crowd. We’re off to the Cicada Music Festival in Mt. Gretna, PA for Aug. 6th and really looking forward to it. The show actually SOLD OUT in early May. Love those Carpenters fans!
We had a wonderful show at the...
Hope your new year is off to a great start!
Merry Christmas Darling: Carpenters’ Christmas had a fab set of Christmas shows at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, Suncoast in Las Vegas, and IP in Biloxi. Thank you to all the incredible teams we worked with at all of those venues – off the charts great! Thanks especially to our wonderful audiences who turned out in droves and sang along with all the Carpenters’ hits and Christmas songs and took the time to say hello after the show.
We are very excited to be showcasing We’ve...
Hard to believe we are well into the fall! It was a great summer in the Northeast. I had some nice work with the Heartbeat and Galvanized Jazz Bands and also made it up to Toronto to adjudicate once again at the Canadian National Exhibition’s Rising Star Competition. It is always inspiring to see the young talent and work with the rest of the team. Thanks to Vicki McKinney for continuing to bring me back.
September and early October were spent at the Arts Conferences. Mark Brett, producer extraordinaire, and I visited...
So happy to be enjoying the summer weather after our harrowing winter in the Northeast (and a late spring to boot!). Our Carpenters’ shows at Mohegan Sun, B.B. King’s in NYC, and Suncoast in Las Vegas were all well-received. A big thank you to the wonderful audience members who came out and to the agents, music writers, and our friends and family for all their support.
Have been having some fun with the Heartbeat Jazz Band in Connecticut and will head back to Toronto in August to adjudicate the Canadian National...
Enjoyed a little break from the weather in the northeast at our show in Lake Charles, LA at the Isle of Capri Casino. A wonderful audience of Carpenters’ fans and got this wonderful comment on our Facebook page after the show:
“Enjoyed so much the performance in Lake Charles tonight at the Isle of Capri. We were just amazed, I will always be thankful to this wonderful and talented group of people who are giving us, who love the Carpenters, this fabulous performance. So easy to feel the love they give in this magical show. ...
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...
So much to be grateful for!
It has been a busy late summer and fall with regular gigs in Connecticut with the happy Heartbeat Jazz Band. In addition I had a ball adjudicating at the Canadian National Exhibition Rising Star Competition at the end of August. Thanks to Coordinator Vicki McKinney and to my fellow judges, in particular my old friend Super-Agent Stephen Greig for all the fun! The talent onstage was awesome and inspiring.
Made it out to Saskatchewan to see family at the end of September – the time always too short! We...
How is it possible that August is here?
We had an eventful early summer with the debut of We’ve Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered in Connecticut and Las Vegas.

Thank you to Terry Jenkins, Josh Crame, Mary Marshall, our fabulous crew (Perry, David, Rob, Luc et al), and everyone at Suncoast Hotel & Casino.
