A great shot of Nita and Johnny right after the show.

Final Christmas show with Johnny Mathis at The Segerstrom Center in Costa Mesa, CA with the 30 piece orchestra. Show was a smash and the audience could not have been any better. Great way to top off the year!

Happy Birthday to Nita today!

Merry Christmas Everyone!🎸

Lost an old friend Ricky Jay this week. Great memories of MuleDeer and Moondogg sharing the Bill with him in the early 70s in Denver and Aspen ..Most memorable was the first time he took the entire audience outside in Aspen CO and sailed a single playing card up and over The Hotel Jerome. Great magician actor and author. My pleasure to have known him all these years. Ricky you will be missed. GMD
