New beginnings & ‘Twas a Great Show!

AlCheck out the articles below on the Sheldon Concert a few weeks ago and the new restaurant where I work.  The Sheldon show, SONGS OF GREAT AMERICAN CROONERS was SOLD OUT the Tuesday show and had a great turnout for the Wednesday show also.  The trio behind me, Rick Zelle piano, Gerald Warren skins and Glen Smith bass, did a fantastic job!  I plan to post some audio from that soon. As for the ‘New beginnings’ mention, I am now working fairly steadily at new St. Louis County USA restaurant, FREDERICK’S STEAKHOUSE. Please check that-out below!  Please note that I am scheduled there Wed-Sat each week minus these nights thru December:  OFF Wed Oct 27 (At RITZ CARLTON Clayton 4-7pm) Nov 6& 7, 14th & 28th. OFF Dec 4 & 5th, 11th and 18th. Please call the restaurant for more info at 314-733-5500. Ciao!
