Dreams Do Come True

This past Monday, I met him… and one of my dreams came true. I met Tony Bennett. I shook his hand, introduced myself, and told him how much I’ve loved him all these years, how he’s tony_bennettinspired me, how I’m one of his biggest fans. He held my gaze the whole time, smiling, and said, “Thank you. Thank you, sweetheart.” He called me SWEETHEART!!! (Swooning, she falls to the floor.) . . .

New Day! New Week! We're at Savona's on Wednesday!

Due to this crazy thing called Thanksgiving, Nancy Tierney & The Boys will be performing at Savona’s on WEDNESDAY, Nov. 17… instead of their normal “last Thursday of the month” time. I hope you can come and take part in some pre-Thanksgiving cheer! . . .

What's New at Savona's

My friend Paul Rakov would argue with me (but then, he’s always arguing with me or someone else), but I do believe that one of the best things about Kingston, New York, is Savona’s Trattoria. And no, I’m not just saying that because I have a gig there every last Thursday of the month. Long before Stephen Savona ever asked me to perform there, Savona’s became my second home here in Kingston. Every time I walk in there, it’s like a scene from Cheers… where everybody knows your name. . . .

What Is It About New York?

This little post appeared in the October issue of Diva News, a monthly ezine I send out to my friends, fans and pretty much anyone else who requests it. If you’d like to be on my Diva list, please leave a comment and I’ll get right on it!

Getting Over Myself…Again

I just discovered it this morning.

My virtual friend and fabulous podcaster Dave Lee had this GREAT Audioboo up on his Facebook page, and I thought, “What is this Audioboo thingy?”

Well… turns out it’s pretty cool! It’s an application that lets you record up to 5 minutes of audio from your iPhone or upload . . .

Open Doors For Others

I was scrambling to get everything together before I caught the train from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station. I needed to be in the city by 5:30 pm so I could scoot my butt over to The Iguana by 6:00 pm to rehearse my two songs with Barry Levitt before the doors opened at 7:00 . . .

Create Your Own Tribe

My sister and I were talking about feeling alone, feeling as if we were Nomads looking for our tribe. We were yearning to have a community of people who felt like home… like the family you always wanted. That flock of white swans who could recognize you weren’t an ugly duckling after all.

A few . . .

This is Carl

Seems I’m a savior of stuffed animals… a role I play with pride.

Let me introduce you to Carl (he’s the one in the photo). I met Carl in front of my house. He was in the gutter, wet and covered in mud. It had been raining pretty hard that morning, and I . . .

New Project! 27 Days of Silliness

During my 31 Days of Experiencing New Things, I was hit with an idea.

Actually, it felt more like a firm kick in the ass from the Universe. Basically, the message was to lighten up, to stop taking life so seriously, to enjoy more and worry less.

And that’s when I knew what I wanted . . .

The Last Three Days of 31 Days of Experiencing New Things

Yesterday, August 1, was the last day of my 31 Days of Experiencing New Things, one of the many 31-day focuses championed by Staci Brice (who now refers to herself as Anastacia). Some days, it was a challenge to conjure up a new experience. Other days, they rolled up to my doorstep, surprising me. Sometimes, . . .
