My travel desk has even more exciting things coming up...there should be a very special announcement soon about plans for 2009!





If you don't have one of the new CD's of excerpts from "The Lost Concert", check here.

And, one of "Roy" and "Elvis'" best duets - "It's Over" - is still on the AUDIO page.






THIS IS AN OLD PAGE, WOULD YOU RATHER READ NEWER ONES?

"WHAT'S NEW"
NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2008


Down along the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico, just about directly to the east of the farthest tip of the Baja Peninsula, sits Mazatlan in the Mexican state of Sinaloa. The area is rich in history, fishing fleets, and Canadian tourists.

Mazatlan is distinctly different from other Mexican Riviera resort cities because it was not created to be a vacation destination. As one travel writer put it, "one day, they discovered that they had a beach". This is a nice difference for me, as I like to have historical places to visit and things to see and do that don't involve always suntan lotion and dodging boogie boards.


I performed as both Roy Orbison and as Conway Twitty at Heather's Place in the "Zona Dorado" - the Golden Zone - of Mazatlan. Both acts went over well, I think, and most of the shows were completely sold out. Heather is a wonderful hostess, and really caters to visitors from the western US and her snowbirds from Canada. Hearty meals are served throughout the day and she has two buffets on show nights, one with Mexican food and one for us stubborn folks.

Thank goodness for the talented assistance of Santana - no, not the group! - the local singer, who also acted as my soundman and provided tunes between my sets so I could go change.


SANTANAMEHEATHER

I started each evening as Roy and performed about a dozen songs, then bolted back to my condo and changed into the Twitty gear for another dozen numbers. Folks danced or sang along and generally seemed to have a pretty good time with both characters.

Their acceptance of me as both singers was a nice turn of events, but even I had no idea of the difference I evidently projected between my two characters. On my last evening, after leaving the stage in Twitty regalia, a man came over to say he had really enjoyed the show a lot. He was very complimentary, and had a lot of questions about me in particular and tribute artists in general. Finally he ended with, "Do you ever work alone or are you always with that guy who did the Roy Orbison?"

Now there's the Mazatlan memory I hoped I would get!
Be well. I'll write again in the New Year...

"WHAT'S NEW" return to October
SEPTEMBER 2007

"The hot sun has cooled a bit and the flash of thunderstorms has finally come again to signal the closing weeks of summer in my little corner of South Carolina. Our region has had unusual weeks upon weeks of temperatures soaring above 100 degrees and my thermometer, my garden and my patience in general has been taxed to their very limits.

Now comes a season of travel as I get to perform on the road in some of my favorite places. Mid-September will find me back in my native state of Massachusetts, visiting with friends and family, sipping coffee at my old haunts and giving shows with Mike Slahetka and his band, "Shakin' All Over". I'm really looking forward to it.

Friday, Sept 14th

Once we get into October and November, I'll be down south in Florida and up north in Canada. If you're in either of those regions, check the SHOWS page for updates & specific information.



"Have one last cookout and gather everyone you care about for burgers and weinies and cold drinks. If anyone brings up this ol' singer, tell 'em he's still on the road and may be headed your way".

All the best,
Brian
