The Raves are still coming in for our Oct. 20th event at The Miami Shores C.C. After the Best Brunch in Town, the festivities were about to begin. Kudos to The Al Matos All Stars, Mark Friedman on keyboards, Jerry Shaw on Drums & Mike Gold on Reeds, who not only kept the crowd up & dancing but provided musical accompaniment for the Show. Rodi Alexander put the crowd in high gear with her fiery rendition of “Love Potion no.9.” Then I opened the show with a Legendary Tony Martin Song, “There’s No Tomorrow.” I then brought up The Footlighters National Treasure, The Legendary Woody Woodbury. When Woody is on stage, it means laughs galore. The Fabulous Voice of Singing Sensation David Orson was next, who the crowd just loved. His renditions of Nessun Dorma from Turandot, The Exodus Song, & When You Wish Upon A Star were especially impressive. And then, a dear friend of mine, Comedy Great Stewie Stone did a brilliant set of Improvisational Stand Up Comedy, which left the audience convulsed in hysterics, but Stewie has been doing that for his entire career.
