Andiamos in DetroitPosted on November 14, 2011
It was a real homecoming for me to perform at Andiamos in Michigan. I grew up there. I first started singing in the restaurant there when I was 18 or so with famed accordian player Tony Dannon among others. It was a great time and they were always very nice to me there. I learned a lot about life and music while I worked there and opened for many great showbusiness acts such as the Smothers Brothers and Gary Pucket, so many more big names too many to mention. I studied all of them and learned so much just being a fly on the wall. It seems today everyone wants instant everything- stardom, gratification, etc. I know Ive been guilty of it too. There is something to be said about coming up the ladder step by step.
It was so wonderful to see all my friends in the audience, 600 strong. I plan on doing another concert there next year around the same time. Hope you can come! Its a showroom like the old Copacabana with the long skinny table and waiters taking drink orders and some light food- then the show starts. Really an impressive place and a throwback. Take care!
