Welcome to Happy Heart Newsletter. 

Loss Of A Good Friend
Ray King...... We will miss you. 
For those of you who did not know Ray, he hosted the Ray King Variety Show, which aired on the Public Access channel in Peoria. He helped so many people have a chance at the spotlight.  He encouraged people and had many friends.

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.


Country Legends - Tribute To Various Artists.

- Chris and I have put together a tribute to country legends by singing duets performed by various artists.  Some of the artists include:  Kenny Rogers and Dottie West; Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash; George Jones and Loretta Lynn; and more.

Country Legends - Chris has put together a tribute to country male artists.  Some of the artists include:  Conway Twitty, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Ray Stevens and more.

We participate in benefits to help raise money for good causes.  We thank our friends and families for supporting us and attending the events.

Volunteer Work
Most of you may not know this, but we volunteer in nursing homes, providing music.  The elderly are so very hungry for visitors and people to volunteer to read to them.  If you can plan some time into your schedule.  Find out what you can do to help.  It will make you feel better to put a smile on someone's face.

Our Band - Dynamics
(founded by Phyllis Staker)

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. 

Chris Hawkins
from East Peoria.  Male vocalist and guitarist.  He provides all the male leads.  His vocal talent is quite an addition to the music.

Betty Giacobazzi from Peoria.  Female lead and keyboardist.  I get the blonde moments and add comedy to the combo.

Together we provide a great musical variety to accommodate any type of event.  Come and check us out!

Elvis - Jim Potter
Jim provides a great display of Elvis moves and gets the crowds cheering.  His portrayal of Elvis is the most moving that I have ever seen.  He is very entertaining.  He has the Elivs look and sound.  Check out his Web site at www.momentswithelvis.net.  Come on out and wear your "Blue Suede Shoes".
