The Wrecking Crew@ Bogies 1/27/18 

What an amazing evening singing with the Wrecking Crew (Don Peake, Don Randi, Chuck Berghofer) with fellow singers Lamont Dozier Jr, Gary Stockdale and Marty Ross. The show was a tribute to Glen Campbell and Glen's long time drummer George Greene was in the band too. Both shows at Bogies in Westlake Village were sold out. What a thrill to sing "These Boots are Made for Walking" with the bassist on the recording.  I also sang "I Got You Babe" with Gary Stockdale and the Glen Campbell classic, "True Grit". It was truly gas! Check out George Harris's review in Jazz Weekly
