Johnny Vegas & The High Rollers

​​
I was back-up and lead singer for this 10-piece band for over 3 years.  A rock and soul revue with disco on the side, I covered songs such as "Chain Of Fools", "Groove Is In The Heart", "Shook Me All Night Long", "I Will Survive", "I Gotta Feeling" and many more great dance tunes.  

 

This group played in venues such as Rancho Nicasio, George's San Rafael, 19 Broadway Fairfax, and many other hot spots around town.  It was also the perfect band for local weddings, big city corporate parties and Napa Winery events.

  Wine Women and Song

​​
Founded and Produced by singer-songwriter-actress Susan Z celebrating 15 years this year 2013, the benefit show to help local folks with cancer issues will be held October 26th at The Jewish Community Center in San Rafael.

 

I have worked with this show since 2007 when I organized and produced  Wine Women and Song events in Berkeley CA for two years.  Along with singing in the events produced by Susan in Marin County, I have also helped to manage the flow for all of the volunteer singers in the show.  With a great love for this organization, I continues to work behind the scenes for this years show.
