What a way to celebrate your 70th Birthday! Willy Ward rocked Blue Frog Studios last night! The incomparable trumpet player/singer staged a multi media extravaganza to the delight of the sold out crowd. Backed by an all star band, Willy took the audience on a trip through his life, highlighting fellow musicians, old friends and mentors. He performed some standards, some earthy blues and wonderful ballads. He says that’s it for his career as a bandleader..but only time will tell. It was a great night for all.
The Ladies were Singing the Blues last night at the Blue Frog Studios. This stellar show features 5 Amazing Lady Singers, Joani Bye, Alita Dupray, Nadine States, Leslie Harris and Amanda Dean, backed by Rob Montgomery and an All-Star Band.

It was a great night to be part of an all star show!
