Las Vegas performance at the Liberace Museum with Melanie Taylor




I was invited to perform with my super-talented friend Melanie Taylor (www.melanietaylormusic.com) in Las Vegas at the Liberace Museum. There is a new show in Vegas at VS (www.vsrockcabaret.com) featuring talent from the biggest shows on the strip. Melanie Taylor and Keely Vasquez both performed in the show and are featured vocalists/dancers in Barry Manilow's band . This is a cool venue where you can hear some amazing talent "step out" and shine on their own music. Melanie asked me to do 2 arrangements and play acoustic guitar for her. Here is a picture of us working it out with the band at soundcheck. The other picture is with Chris Gray, the trumpet player from Barry Manilow's band, and Liberace. He seemed nice but didn't say much...

Mr. Wollman...well you can't go wrong with a singer like Melanie and the sassy pipes of Keely! These ladies can jam...and so can you.

Our strange neighbor adores cats and had them everywhere in her house. As if the dozen live cats were not enough, in every room in her house, she has framed prints, large and small, of the blessed animals.0
She says that she orders her canvas prints, like this one
