For Candye Kane fans, here are 2 rare videos I recently discovered in my memorabilia. One was taken at the Calypso Restaurant in Leucadia, CA, in about 2001 (Wheel of Fortune), and one, earlier, circa 1997 or 98, at Mixx Restaurant, in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego (The Patti Page/Rosemary Clooney Revue). Candye is at her cheesiest and in rare performing mode. The audience loved the camp and, despite the tongue in cheek-ness of it all, her beautiful voice cuts through. We are joined by some of my favorite musical pals: April West, Sharon Shufelt, and on "Wheel of Fortune," Jimmy Woodard, also.

The Passing of Candye Kane
I regret to announce the sad news that, Friday night, May 6, 2016, we lost a force of nature. Candye Kane passed away, after an 8 year battle with cancer. Candye was my long term music partner, for most of the '90s, and was a very dear friend. She took me all over the world, taught me how to perform to my fullest, inspired me to write music, absolutely delighted me and made me laugh. I loved her very much. The Gator By the Bay Festival was dedicated to her memory. She was onstage with us that day. There will be a musical celebration at the Belly Up Tavern, during the day, on June 25, 2016.
