Hello everyone, Yes I had my 40th bday July 14. I spent my day and two others in Vegas. I know right, far cry from even three weeks ago, when I was feeling so terrible from surgery. 

 Alas, I am feeling great, rehearsing vocals for show Aug 15th in Reno NV. Vegas was a complete blast. Rode the High Roller, which is the worlds tallest ferris wheel. That was so much fun. Saw Showstoppers at Wynn. Took two buddies to old town so they could see the Freemont Experience. Also took in some pool time, and a little shopping. Was just relaxing fun.

 Now the Birthday month continues with Wild Island Water park party I host every year. This year it's on July 22nd. Going to be fun in the sun.

 Then Thursday is dancer rehearsal at 10 am in Reno. Then going to see 38 Special live in concert at CVI in Minden, NV. It's a full Bday month. Really fun and really cool. 

 Rehearsals will be 1 day each week until show day which is Aug 15, 2015 at Wing Field Park in Downtown Reno. At this point I open this Reno Gay Pride event. Which is nice, since it wont be to Hot at 11 am. If the time changes you can click on live shows link and to get to Reno Pride's website.

 I will also keep you posted on time changes if they happen. Otherwise, I am working hard on finalizing costumes for this years show. I must say, one of them is going to knock everyone out. There are 4 changes this year, two more then last year and the dancers are cute and awesome too. 

 Going with two dancers this time, unless I get some volunteers. The show has one or two songs from The Look album, the rest are from the Aug fourth-coming CD Be Near Me dropping Aug 10, 2015. Featuring 15 all new songs. 80's covers and one country cover. 

 I am ubber excited to release the album. I really believe it's a good one. I have slowly come a long way. Learning always continues and will always continue. 

 I will be starting the Christmas CD in two weeks. Since next week is so full. I am vocal rehearsing daily to I nail the Aug live show. I'll keep rehearsing to hell wont have me.LOL

 That's about it for now. I have not finished "Can't Say Anything" yet. Also have not yet started recording the Markie self-penned CD yet. I will get hot and heavy on that come fall. Hope everyone is well, and doing great things! Love You, Markie
