Last night we had the honor of participating in a wonderful charity called, “Songs of Love.” It was their first west coast gala and “Songs of Love” is a special cause because they create tailor made songs for children with terminally ill diseases. Everyone one there was touched by the effort that is put into each song created for a child and we all got to participate in recording one ourselves for a child named, Logan.
Amazing musical performances by Frank Stallone, JC Love & Player, Amanda Steinberg, Blu Cantrall and Alana and Those Fine Gentlemen made the evening extra special. Player now wants to donate “No More Rain” as the theme song to this charity and shoot a music video with many of these special children in it.
My pals, Brad & Tina Hillstrom, Keiko Noah and Peggy & Micah Tanous were there to lend their love and support. We all had a wonderful time and intend to do more to help creator John Beltzer continue his lovely mission. “Songs of Love” have now written over 24,000 songs for terminally ill children and these songs are given to the child as a double dose of medicine. They were featured on 60 Minutes and formed in New York almost 18 years ago by John Beltzer.
Writer, producer, director, Nick Vallelonga was the master of ceremonies and put this first west coast gala together and we thank him for his wonderful efforts and including us in such a worthy cause. Although we have participated in several worthwhile charities, we think “Songs of Love” is a perfect fit for Player and look forward to helping to write more songs for these children.
Mondays will always have a specialness to it now because I’ll never forget how we rocked out on a Monday with Player at the Canyon Club. The event was a great success to say the least. We filled the house and rocked it big time! Shelter Hope Pet Shop was amazing and I want to thank all the volunteers who put in all their time an effort on the decorations, gift bags and red carpet. Kim Sill, founder of Shelter Hope Pet Shop went overboard on an amazing cake that was too delicious and a great time was had by all.
We had REO Speedwagon in the house along, with artist Olivia, Michael Moebius, Katherine Kelly Lang, Winsor Harmon, Allie Mills, Orsen Bean, Adam Gregory, Linda Thompson, Sheree J. Wilson, Renee Tenison, Sean Kanan & Bud Cort all getting down on the dance floor to the music of Player. The band was amazing and the evening couldn’t have turned out better. We raised over $5000 for Shelter Hope Pet Shop and more donations are coming in everyday on behalf of my 50th birthday, so thank you all so much! We can save quite a few animals with this money. Fans flew in from all over the country to see the band and I had my best buddies and most awesome Player Angels on hand to help me as my ladies in waiting. I say that because all my girlfriends spent the weekend with me and they were all waiting on me hand and foot. So they bought me a tiara and made me Queen and they were Princesses. We all decided to wear our Player tank tops and I wore my tiara all night long being the Queen was fun!
My only regret is that some people brought me gifts even though I said, “NO GIFTS!” As a result I put them in my gift bag and at the end of the evening that bag was gone and so were my gifts and my tiara! So the quest to find my tiara and gifts is ongoing here. Anyone who has it and won’t give it back will be beheaded!! Thank you Kira Reed Lorsch for being the best MC ever!
Player had a good time playing at the first annual Canada Fest in Palm Springs. There were alot of food and clothing vendors, as well as a fashion show that I participated in, along with my pals Robin Krasny and Eden Ayers. Player’s very own webmistress Patti Meyers came all the way from New Jersey to party with us. Before their concert, A funny thing happen to Ronn after I left him alone in the hotel room before I went to get ready for the fashion show. Apparently, Ronn was putting the room service trays outside our door and locked himself out in his underwear! He said he luckily found a bellman that helped him back inside the room and the guy was trying not to laugh. Can you imagine if he had been naked?
Given that Player is getting more and more in demand for gigs all over the place I came up with a cool idea of starting a fan club for them and along with Eden, Patti and Robin we will launch, “The Player Angels.” You can join us and have your photo featured on the Player website. Details are coming soon, but your membership gets you a sexy Player T-shirt like ours, a Free photo of the band and 10% off future merchandise, as well as, chances to win prizes and back stage passes. As a member you will know FIRST when and where they are playing next! So join us for the next concert, maybe in your city and be a “PLAYER ANGEL!”
