Happy Days from Bloomington to Bemidji!
Just completed an amazing two day run at the Bloomington Center For the Arts' Black Box Theater. It was really great to play to a sold out crowd on Sunday!!
It was a perfect intimate space for the show and the audience was engaged and participatory. Many of them thanked me for bringing back memories. The sound was superb as was the lighting, manned by Jordan Daoust, AV Specialist at BCA.
The band was my cradle and we were swingin'! My thanks to Reynold Philipsek, guitar, Josh Granowki, double bass and Doug Haining, horns (as featured above).
I just booked a Happy Days tour of the Kitchigami Regional Libraries which will take me from Brainerd to Bemidji with 7 other stops in between. What a wonderful opportunity to bring the stories and standard songs of the 30's 40's and 50's and the Greatest Generation to all the generations of this region! Super excited to spend time, meet all the fine folks along the way, and experience this beautiful part of Minnesota in the Fall.
I am now booking this show on my own, so please pass along my info if you think this show would be well received in a particular community. Again, my thanks to the Minnesota Historical Society, Minnesota Regional Libraries and Legacy Fund and the people of Minnesota for making this all possible.
