Dear Friends,


As you may or may not have heard, I suffered a heart attack last year while competing in a ballroom dance competition in San Francisco. My heart literally stopped mid-dance while on the dancefloor and I was gone for more than 10 minutes! I was in coma for almost a month and my recovery has been tough. But I am back and no heart attack is going to stop me from putting on a great show. I would love if you all could join me for this very special reunion event, a celebration of life and music. I will be performing a Sinatra Tribute featuring many classics from The Great American Songbook.


As Ol’ Blue Eyes sagely crooned:

“I’m gonna live ‘till I die!

I’m gonna laugh ‘stead of cry,

I’m gonna take the town and turn it upside down,

I’m gonna live, live live until I die”


Well in my case, I lived until I died, got back up again and now have a lot more living to do. I hope to see you all, my friends, at this very special celebration of life.


Still Alive & Swinging,
