Friday night’s performance in Youngstown at Stambaugh Auditorium was an amazing experience. I’m supposed to be receiving video of the performance so I hope to get that posted soon. I took some pics to show you some behind the scenes…. view from the stage at sound check, my dressing room, pictures of the auditorium.
It was wonderful seeing Angelo Babbaro again and John Reese. John played the trombone in the band. Rick Brunetto’s band backed me up, with Rick on the Drums and David Schubach on the piano. I also met Jeff Gibbons, from Erie, Pennsylvania who was a fill in on trumpet for the band. Such sweet guys and amazing talent, so thrilled to get to work with them.
There is talk of maybe another show Mother’s Day weekend in Pennsylvania. I’ll keep you posted. And Rick wants me to continue to come to the 94th on Thursday nights. Maybe I’ll get to try some more new songs with the band.
This was definitely one Valentine’s Day I won’t forget. Thank you for all your wishes of success and for coming out to support me.
