COOLEY August 2019 Wrapup
Another August come and gone with shows from Ilani Casino (16 miles from home) to Seattle and all the way to Boise, ID. I’ve taken some serious R&R in SE Oregon, enjoying hot springs, a visit to Malheur Wildlife Refuge, long walks on the desert and dinner at the Frenchglen Hotel near Steens Mt. 'Looking forward to COOLEY Show Band performances at Ridgefield’s Oktober Fest Sat. evening Sept. 14, and, a matinee performance Mon. Sept. 16 at Ilani Casino featuring songs of Billy Joel & Elton John — showtime 1p. Let’s all enjoy what’s left of summer 2019 — Thank you for your support!
If you missed any of my August Social Media posts here are some of my favorites below.

I’ve been told countless times by friends and relatives to "TAKE IT EASY" while I recover from surgery. It’s been a bit tricky. (especially slowing down) But I’m on the mend — working my way back into the current performance lineup. I’ve been able to reschedule a few shows and I feel fortunate to work with such gracious talent buyers. Here’s a pic of showing that I'm (actually) taking your advice by relaxing on the front porch. Thank you everyone for hangin’ with me during this difficult adventure. Now — it’s off to the pharmacy for more antibiotics - blah!
