Heather's Place has been importing tribute artists for a few years now, and I was named "King of Heather's" for having the largest audience ever at this beautiful little spot by the ocean. Thanks so much to Heather, Hector, Santiago, Santana, Abel, and all of the regulars and newcomers who made my stay so nice!
Now we're most of the way through winter and my New Year's resolutions have gone by the wayside already...except one. I said I was going to try to get around to see more of you, and I'm working on it...the phone keeps ringing and my travel plans are changing left and right.
February will find me again in New England Yankeeland. On the 12th, we go all-out romantic for a Valentines's Day weekend show in Saratoga, New York. This is at the beautiful Holiday Inn ballroom where I appeared last year. We'll trot out the most lovey-dovey songs that both Roy and Conway could come up with, and be joined by Texan Bill Harris, a new Engelbert Humperdink impersonator.
I'll hop on over to Pennsylvania the very next day for the first performance this year of a new show called "Rock & Roll Heaven". Before I tell you more about it, can you answer this question?
What single, unique thing, did Buddy Holly,
Roy Orbison, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, and James Brown have in common? VIEW THE PLAYBILL OF "ROCK & ROLL HEAVEN"
There's also a Conway Twitty appearance in late March with my good friend Steve Fairchild (Garth Brooks extraordinaire) and a cast of country favorites, including a much-anticipated reunion of Conway with Miss Loretta Lynn.
Early feelers are out for the remainder of 2010, as well. I will be way out West at some point this summer, definitely up and down the East Coast, maybe in the Far East, or out to sea...you never know.
One thing is certain, though...I will return to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (with a more colorful wardrobe than usual) in September and October as "Legends in Concert" brings my tribute to Conway Twitty to the beach. They are renovating the theatre at this writing and I hear some surprises are in store; you can check in on the "Legends" website to keep abreast of those developments.
Happy St. Valentine's Day,
a thoughtful President's Day, beware the Ides of March,
and Erin Go Bragh!
