Finally, I’m writing again. I know a day late and a dollar short LOL. I want to wish all of you a happy New Year! Yeah I know, it’s the middle of January, but I don’t think it’s too late, ok.
The latest thing happening in my career is that I’m going to Europe on January 29th, mainly to Germany, for a 16 day Tour, with about three days off.
The Tour schedule is:
Wed. 2. Feb.
Thu. 3. Feb,
Fri. 4. Feb.
Charivari (Im Bahnhof Wattenscheid)
Sat. 5. Feb
Sun. 6. Feb.
Tues, Wed, Thu. 8-10. Feb.
Hotel Bayerischer Hof
I will work in the Club Scene; I think it will be fun. Although some of my dates will be in the Bayerischer Hof in Munich. It is one of the most famous Hotels in Germany. I used to work there four or five times a year when I lived in Europe. One of the yearly Tours I did was the Christmas Tour. I would work there starting about a week before Christmas, including performing my Special Gospel Concert “Jean Shy sings Mahalia Jackson” on the 3rd or 4th of Advent. Having a couple of days off for Christmas, and enjoying a wonderful Holiday with my family at the Hotel. After Christmas I ‘d either continue performances there including doing their fabulous Penthouse NY Eve Party, or many times, I would be sent to their other Hotel “Zur Tenne” in Kitzbuehel, a Ski resort in Austria. It was always so beautiful there, because of the Ski sloops and the Snow, and the town looked like a Christmas Village. I don’t ski but I love watching others ski. The Food there is excellent, and the cappuccino is to die for. Both Hotels were great fun, and I’m looking forward to working there again.
As I said, I will be in Germany for 16 days, and then back to California. You know I’m really looking forward to this trip because I’ll see lot’s of fans, and friends I haven’t seen in Years. I’m working with my own Band “The Shy Guys,” as well my friend Ralf Heinrich and his Band “The Voyagers.” Both Bands are good. My Manager, and the Front man/ Guitarist of the Band 9 Door Empire “Alex Walker” will accompany me on the Trip. Alex is a special Guest on the Shows, and I’m so exited about it. Check out 9 Door Empire’s new Single “Breakdown” at www.9doorempire.com.
Ok. I think that’s good for now. I’ll talk back to you before I leave, and when I return I’ll give you all the details. Alright?! God Bless all of you. This Year let’s all keep the faith guys! Because we can do anything if we just believe.
Talk to ya,
PS: As some of you may know, I’m also an Author, and I have written four Books for Children. One of them will be published in February as a Table Top Book. When I get back, I will give you a few excerpts from it. Be on the lookout.
