WOW! Words really cannot describe the amazing outpouring of friendship, love and support I received last Saturday night for my 50th Birthday Bash at Mo’s Irish Pub Wauwatosa! It was literally overwhelming and I truly apologize if I wasn’t able to catch up with each and every one of you personally! A special shout out goes to my family, including several ‘long lost’ relatives that were able to join us for dinner and the show! I must thank my beautiful Paulafor everything she did to make the afternoon & evening a success too! The mini cupcakes were a big hit and the masses gobbled them up! Also, my new work buddies at IBM conspired to surprise me. They kept chatter to a minimum at work so I didn’t know what they were planning and then almost my whole team showed up last night! What a cool group! While enjoying dinner with my family, a steady string of friends started popping into Mo’s for dinner plans of their own and all the waves and ‘hello’s were very humbling! Our Milwaukee’s Addiction show was a blast too! We debuted yet a few more new songs, “Foolin” from Def Lep and “When You Close Your Eyes” from Night Ranger and the crowd loved ’em both! We also dusted off a few personal favorites of mine, “This Burning Heart” by Vandenburg and the Gary Moore version of “Shapes of Things”. We love ’em both and we heard ya telling us you do too! A candle laden surprise cherry cheesecake appeared for me during our set break, along with a chorus of Happy Birthday! Thank you Maribeth! Of course, many thanks to Mo’s for hosting, TEC – The Entertainment Company for setting it up, ALM Fusion Event Services and Angeloand Pete for running sound and lights and all of our awesome fans, friends and families that continue to support us and other local bands! You rock!
