Hi Peeps! : )
The last 5 weeks have been a BLAST, appearing alongside the legendary Osmond Brothers in the new hit show titled….. well, “The HITS!” Not to toot our own horn, but the show has received enthusiastic standing ovations for every single performance during this run, and we’re so grateful for the rave reviews, applause, and support!
I’ve had the opportunity to work with the brothers last year in their Christmas Spectacular show at the Andy Williams MOON RIVER Theatre (which sold out almost EVERY night!) and it was so much fun, that we agreed to several multiple contracts for this year and beyond. The brothers, Merrill (pictured to the left), Jay, and Jimmy are of course part of the family that also includes several older brothers, as well as Donnie and Marie. Their harmonies are still amazing, and it was a thrill to watch them perform. “Pro’s” through and through!
We wrapped out final show this Saturday to the ‘perfect audience’, and as usual, I might have ad-libbed and improvised just a little bit longer due to the energy in the theater. So Fun! The brothers will soon fly to England for another series of concert dates, while I remain at the Moon River Theatre, to begin the next version of “The HITS!” with country superstar, COLLIN RAYE! (We start Monday!)
During this last week, I got to watch Collin rehearse with the show’s band, and he’s just stellar. Tremendous voice, and a great sense of humor. We’re both looking forward to performing together, and I can guarantee this will be one heck of a show! Collin will be singing a heaping dose of his 16 No.#1 singles from his 24 “Top Ten” records, and there’s even a heartfelt tribute to the legend, Glen Campbell, including Collin’s own versions of his classics. I’ll be bringing the comedy magic, and audience interaction, and mayhem. In short, a wonderful variety type of show suitable for all ages! Hope you can make it!
