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. . . .

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, . . .

31 Days of Experiencing New Things: Day 15, 16 & 17

There are new expiences you look forward to. They feel fun and adventurous. Others grab you by surprise. You couldn’t have planned them if you tried. And if you’re really lucky, you get a little of both in the same experience! That was Day 16, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Gig Day

Gig days are strange. The energy is rushy and wavy. There is a lot to do, most of which is either paper work or hauling equipment. Often, the biggest challenge is deciding what to wear.

Here’s a snippet of video from gig day on June 24, plus a sneak into the dressing room of the . . .

Bad News Today: Upper Fourth is Closed

My friend Jeff from Sebastopol gave me the bad news last night.

Upper Fourth is closed.

For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, Upper Fourth is, or rather, was a beautiful, classy bar in Santa Rosa that offered adults the perfect place to meet, have a drink, talk quietly, laugh loudly . . .

Diva News: Video Blog, Sept. 4, 2009

Hey Gang!

Here’s my first video blog, inspired by the fact that I’ve been too damned busy to write an issue of Diva News, or even a blog post for that matter.

Just to catch you up as I enter my 6th month in New York.

Everybody’s Just a Stranger

Everybody’s just a stranger, but that’s the danger of going my own way. It’s the price I have to pay.

— John Mayer, from the song, Georgia

This afternoon, I’ll be singing at Don’t Tell Mama in New York City. It’s my sliver of a New York City debut.

When Life Becomes a John Mayer Song

“I rent a room and I fill the spaces with wood in places To make it feel like home…. but all I feel’s alone.”

I hate it when you’re winding down from a long week with a beer and a conversation with a dear friend and truth sneaks in and smacks you up . . .
