"Hi everyone, it's been a while since I updated my comments on the website and thought I would take this opportunity to tell you I am going to Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend #15 on April 4th-8th 2012.

This is the venue where I did my first "comeback" show in 2007, I returned to that stage in 2009 and am very happy to be able to go back next year. It's a great Rockabilly weekend and I love meeting with the fans.

Since that last time in 2009, I have been privileged to do some other really fun shows. The first "Rockabilly Bash" in Amsterdam produced by Lotta and Kitty, who do such a great job managing this website and then in May of 2010 was invited to the Hemsby Rock and Roll weekend #44. Once again, I was very impressed with the whole weekend in Hemsby. Great artists and great fans, I was honored to be a part of it.

I continue to be amazed at how receptive the fans are to my music after all these years, and it is a great thrill for me to be on stage and have everyone singing along"
