Kole Notes Fall 2010

More Good news and Great news…

The summer is now over and we’re entering into the last four months of 2010…I’ll start this issue of Kole Notes with an update on my wife Gardner…She has been making great progress since her stroke five months ago this past Saturday…For those of you that want to see Gardner’s progress since April 3rd, CLICK HERE for a short video taken on the five month anniversary…As you can see, her steps are getting more positive and she is starting to get movement in her left arm…I asked her to squeeze my hand and yes, she was able to get a little movement there also…She has a long way to go, but she is on a roll…I don’t like going anywhere or performing without having her close by so she is working like crazy to make my wish come true…

I canceled our summer European tour but was fortunate to get a 13 week booking at Stalla’s in the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, MS which kept my mind sharp and my fingers nimble…They opened Stalla’s for the summer months and it closed this past Sunday, September 5th…I will truly miss my evenings there as all the people from the President & COO, the Entertainment Director, the Contractor plus the wait staff and room manager at Stalla’s were all were true “class” people to work with…This weekend (9-11) the trio and I will be performing in Alexandria, LA with the Rapides Symphony Orchestra…It’s a free concert that will be held outside on the banks of the Red River…This will be the first time that I’ll be out of town without Miss G…I’ll also be doing a private party fundraiser in Alexandria for the Arts at the home of our very dear friends Lance and Leetha Harris…

I’m looking forward to performing a convention show in New Orleans next week, and next month with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and other guest artists…I’m looking forward to renewing a wonderful Mardi Gras Bash that we did in Oceanside, CA for many years, and now they have moved it to Minneapolis…What a kick that’ll be…In November we’ll be doing dinner shows at the Chateau Golf and Country Club in Kenner, LA, and at Our Lady of Wisdom Healthcare Center, New Orleans…December 1st we’ll kick off the month long Christmas New Orleans Style in St Louis Cathedral with the trio, plus guest artists John Perkins and Kitty Cleveland…Two wonderful singers… There are so many more dates, but it’s best to check them out on this website…So many out of town performances have been moved to later dates with the hopes that Gardner will be able to join me, and all these venue’s have been so understanding…

I’ll be looking for you at some of the upcoming dates, and know that you can always get in touch with us by e-mail, phone or mail, and thanks for all of your prayers for Gardner to return to full health…They have been working as you’ll see in the attachment…

Gardner sends hugs, as do I, and thanks again;
