Happy birthday to Grooveyard friend Gary US Bonds. The cake on the left is from the after-party at Gary’s Birthday Bash and book launch at BB Kings in Times Square last night. Pick up Gary’s autobiography and see more on his website.
It was also a great surprise to sit at the same table during the concert with the lovely Dee Dee Sharp and her husband. We hope to have her on the show soon. In the meantime, check out her website.
