The Inside Scoop On The Show

On Friday Aug 27 I’ll be performing my first show at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills CA.  This is a great venue with fantastic sound, a groovy vibe, and — bonus! — they now have a MECHANICAL BULL!  (I’ve never actually ridden a mechanical bull, but I guess there’s a first time for everything)

Mechanical animals aside, this show will be a real spectacle, in the best sense of the word. I’ll be accompanied by Bob Terry on percussion, performing a rockin set of my original tunes, and then everyone in the audience will be treated to a stunning Beatles tribute band — introduced by none other than “Ed Sullivan” himself!  The Fab Four pays incredible attention to detail in every song, and they change costumes three times during the show, representing every era of the Beatles’ career.
