I present highly interactive and experiential Musical Programs, Singing Telegrams/Phone Serenades, Motivational, Inspirational Workshops, Keynotes. My Musical Program most requested is called, "A Tribute to the Rat Pack Plus." In this program, I do my impression of Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Elvis and Jimmy Durante and sing numbers made popular by Frankie and Sammy. The client should book me because I make my audience members the "Stars." In the very first song, I will have a lady from the audience up dancing with me to Sinatra's " The Way You Look Tonight." I will have 10 - 20 members of the audience up doing the NY chorus line. I create unforgettable Experiences!
What to Expect
When an audience comes to see me, they will see me glowing as I perform/present with boundless and dynamic energy. This is because I am doing what I love to do and what I was born to do. I will immediately engage and resonate with them and I will be in the audience for most of my performance/presentation. I will make it clear up front that their participation is totally optional. I will not coerce anyone to do anything they don't want to.
All my programs are packed with spontaneity, laughter, fun and joy. The interaction is remarkable. My speaking programs are also packed with high content.
When a Client hires me, they get an entertainer/speaker who is totally laser focused on making the performance/presentation about the audience.
When I was in the seventh grade, I was in my first musical performance and and won my first public speaking contest. I have been singing and speaking ever since. After receiving an AAS Degree in Electrical Engineering Technology, I decided not to pursue a Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering. I spent the next thirty years in Management (Hotel, Credit and Sales) In 1996, I started a Singing Ministry in Nursing Homes, Memory Care Facilities, Assisted Living and Independent Living Communities. Within a short period of time, I was singing in 30-40 healthcare facilities a month. I also offered my services for Corporate events and for special events.
In the course of my four highly interactive musical programs, I do a total of seven voice impressions. They are Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Elvis Presley, Jimmy Durante, Louie Armstrong, Johnny Mathis and Bing Crosby.
In 1999, I added Professional Speaking Programs to my roster of services.

Additional Booking Notes
I bring all of my own equipment. If the client has a synthesizer, I may request connecting to it.
I need a 4-8' draped table at the front of the room for my equipment. Need room at the front of the room or on one side of the room where people can dance and where 10-15 people can do the NY Chorus Line. Need room that would allow me to connect with people in the audience. If the room needs to be set up theater style, that will not be a problem.
