RIP Jimmy Buffett
IT’S BEEN A LOVELY CRUISE
I have one public show remaining, then I’ll disembark from this cruise. I’ve been sailing on this dream for almost half a century. I’ve loved singing and entertaining for most of the past 5 decades but it’s time to move on. Jimmy Buffett’s passing has made me realize I’ve missed enough of my personal life being booked somewhere other than here. It’s been a great run since my 2-first shows, which incidentally was singing Margaritaville, Changes in Latitudes and Peaceful Easy Feeling at Andy’s Saloon’s closing down ceremonies in La Mesa, CA. I made $60 those two nights. That was in 1977. I was hooked from the first night. Many shows, many friends, and a multitude of great and fortunate years later I’m lucky enough to go out on my terms. I can’t thank you all enough for the support. I’m truly and overwhelmingly grateful, and blessed.
My last show is Oct 6th at Carlton Oaks 4:30-7:30pm
I hope to see you down the road.
Stay healthy and God bless us all.

Thanks Tim Flannery and Jimmy Buffett for making the photo (below) possible below. Tim, Sharron Schumaker and I started a band in 1992 and our fifth show was the opening act for Jimmy Buffett.
