New Online Concert

No Comments

For my third Stageit live stream concert, I will be performing more of my tunes along with quite a few songs from an album I recorded some years ago called A SONG FOR YOU which includes songs by some of the most popular singer/songwriters of all times like Elton John, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and more. The arrangements (by Randy Waldman) for these songs are absolutely gorgeous and some of them feature a full orchestra!

Hope you will join me for another session of music and good vibes. Click here for tickets:

You’ll need to create a free account with stageit.com and get a few notes (stageit’s own currency) to buy a ticket. You can spend as little as $.10 to get a ticket but you are welcome to “tip” during the performance if you’d like, but it is not necessary.
See you on the stage!

Some of you had questions about how it works so I’ll tell ya; Click here:

and then create a free account with stageit.com, You’ll need a few notes (stageit’s own currency) to get a ticket! You can spend as little as $.10 to get a ticket for my show so it’s basically free but you are welcome to “tip” during the performance if you’d like, but it is not nessesary.

You can then see the full show and write me messages during the show and also communicate with other people watching, it’s a really cool interactive experience!

This upcoming show I wanted to make super intimate so there are only 50 tickets available (we sold many more than that for the last show) and once the show is done it goes away, won’t be posted anywhere!

Post your requests on my social media and I’ll see you Sunday on the Stage!

Dear Friends –
Last week one of the most amazing things in my life happened, I welcomed my baby boy Landon into this world! I wanted to share the news with you.

He is my first born child and at 50 years old I honestly thought I had missed the opportunity to have a child but my dream came true and I am overjoyed.
I’m taking a few weeks off before I hit the road again but when I do, it will be with a little extra love and joy!

Love, ML
