Pics From the NYC Fresh Fruit Playhouse Variety Show

Monday, December 27th, 2010

Having sprained both ankles, a feat that even my doctors were surprised by, it wasn’t enough to deter me from delivering a performance when duty calls. I was determined to crawl to the show, but arrived in a rental wheel chair. I managed with some help to hobble on stage and used my cane as a prop.

I sang “Sign Post,” which is the title track from my next CD. Here are some photos:

The Fresh Fruit Festival was a lot of fun. It was my first time at the Nuyorican Cafe and I’ll be back for sure.

Now Performing……
