I looked up and realized that I hadn't posted a news update since mid-February, so...Happy Summer, Everyone!

We had a tremendous spring and early summer at Montage Laguna Beach and it's hard to believe the year is already more than half over. I continue my regular schedule in the Montage Laguna Beach Lobby Lounge, performing Tuesday through Saturday each week, 8-midnight. My CD, "Cover to Cover, Collection 1" is still available for purchase on my Music page and at the Montage Lobby Lounge during my performances, and at Treasures, the Montage gift shop. Get your copy of "Cover to Cover, Collection 1" today, along with a copy of my all-original CD, "Ten for The Road."

In my last news update I mentioned the impending release of my live DVD/CD from my performance last year at DPS, Inc. with Rick Cowling. Well, that release has been pushed back, but it is coming! My editor has completed about 98% of the video and when he's done, Rick and I will address final audio mix before I go to manufacturing. Hoping for a late September release, with YouTube videos posted most likely in early September. I am considering doing a couple of all-original shows in the fall, possibly with the addition of a drummer and bass player, so stay tuned to my Appearances page for my schedule. As I mentioned before, there will be a social media push surrounding the release of the package and the show dates.

I will be performing again this year for our holiday tree lighting Monday, December 2 following Thanksgiving, along with a duo partner to be determined. Always a beautiful spectacle and experience! I will also be performing Thanksgiving evening and Christmas evening, as usual. And once again, Naked Cake will again rise for New Year's Eve 2013 in the Lobby Lounge, so make your plans NOW to be there! The BEST NYE party in south OC and no cover! This will be Naked Cake's 5th year in a row and will feature the same incredible lineup - Alec Milstein on bass and vocals, Robin Swenson on keys and vocals, Phil Settle on guitar and vocals, Michael Clarke on drums and yours truly on lead vocals.

See you all in the Lobby Lounge!
