I just want to give a quick thanks to Pete Paquette and everyone at Paquette Productions for a wonderful experience on my first tour in Ontario in several years. The photo above was shot backstage in Chatham, ON. The following three weeks will see me and the stellar cast of Class of ’59 touring Alberta and BC. Check the sidebar for ticket info and dates. Hope to see you there!*

During the last Legends of Rock & Roll tour I had the pleasure of introducing my main squeeze, Molly D, to my hometown crowd. We decided to perform a duet of one of our favourite duos of the 50s – The Everly Brothers. It was such a hit that people asked for more from what we coined “The Everly Lovers”. So we had a little fun shooting “All I Have to do is Dream” at the apartment while we prepare to return for our Rock & Roll Christmas in December.
I’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who attended what I joked as an “entomologists dream line-up” – the Legends of Rock & Rock presenting a tribute concert of the Beatles AND Crickets. We played three packed venues in BC: the Mary Winspear in Sydney, the Port Theatre in Nanaimo, and the Cowichan Theatre in Duncan. The shows were very well received and we hope to reunite again for a more extensive tour sometime next year.
The Beatles are my long-time favourite band. It was a dream come true sharing the stage with the Fab Fourever. Not only was it a dream come true for me but I like to think we were living out a dream for the Beatles themselves. They were hugely inspired by Buddy but never got a chance to meet him in person. I think they would have gotten along nearly as well as we did 😉
Another dream came true for me on this tour. My dream girl, Molly Dee, made her dazzling debut performing in Canada. She lit up the stage performing highlights from Lulu and Dusty Springfield as well as forging a new act together as “the Everly Lovers”.
Next up: Molly Dee and I return along with the wild and wonderful piano talents of Lancy Lapinskyas Jerry Lee Lewis for a Rock & Roll Xmas in December. See sidebar for dates!
