COVID-19 PANDEMIC. HINDSIGHT IS 2020!
2020 was the year my career was cancelled. In the second half of
2021 things are looking up -- sort of. If only those stubborn
holdouts would get their vaccine! If

songs & albums can be purchased and/or downloaded at Amazon or Apple iTunes.
With the recent unexpected surge in DELTA covid,

a good idea to check in with a venue before you hire the babysitter!

Another one of last year's shows rescheduled. Location is the Maple Street Chapel, 200 South Main Street, Lombard, IL

Regretfully cancelled. I have a bad cold. A virus other than covid
-- I was tested a few days ago. But the cold is a respiratory thing,
moving from sinuses to chest. Maple Street folks and I decided I had best
stay home and have more soup. It will be rescheduled for another day.
