New Opportunities in 2005
2005 is bringing new opportunities to Chris and I. We have been
guests on the Radio Show, "Breakfast With Royce and Roger". What a
charge to work with such talented people. They keep you laughing
and you never know what to expect from the dynamic duo. We look
forward to working with them again.
Walkin' With Patsy - A Tribute To Patsy Cline.
I remember singing Patsy's songs when I was a teenager. She has
always been my favorite artist. Her songs were sung from the heart
and she shared her life through her songs. My goal is to try to
portray the Country Legend with true love to her memory in my heart.

by singing duets performed by various artists. Some of the artists
include: Kenny Rogers and Dottie West; Johnny Cash and June Carter

Our Band - Dynamics

Phyllis Staker from Tremont, Lead guitarist and vocalist. She
is absolutely amazing on the guitar. She can make the guitar sing
and is very entertaining. She can play the harmonica, bass pedals
and guitar at the same time. When you see her, ask her what a "Doo
Daa" is? We are still trying to find out.
Karen Sperlin from Normal, vocalist and drummer. She is quite
a character and great addition to the band.

He provides all the male leads. His vocal talent is quite an
