Thank you, Martin... I could not agree more. There are so many "plumbers doing electrician's jobs" today. I think that karaoke and TV talent shows has certainly built up people's courage to the point of aggravation for real entertainers and musicians. I understand that people should have a voice and even sing, but it has become as though mediocrity is the standard of performance. And as for picture-perfect copies of performers, there are simply far too many imitators out there. I am officially "pulling the plug" on pub dates as of December 31. I will continue to book specialized functions where 60's and 70's pop is the focal point, but I refuse to continue to "feed strawberries to pigs." As hard as that sounds, it is the sad truth.
Thanks for the vote of confidence, my friend.
Best, Jim Hollis
