One of the greatest experiences I have had was playing for Bobby Vinton. The first time was in Waterloo, Iowa and I was able to play the last three seasons with him in Branson. I grew up dancing to his great voice when I was in high school and he sounds as good now as he did then.

Bobby is not only a great singer but also a very talented musician- playing sax, clarinet, trumpet, piano, drums and about anything else that makes a noise. He is also one of the most gifted song writers of our time. To you Bobby, thank you for the opportunity to play in your fine orchestra and to those who have enjoyed his music for so many years, here is a number I hope you will enjoy.
