Here are some clips from a surprise 50th Birthday Party, performed at Mahoning Valley Ambulance Building on April 28th, 2012. The guest of honor was surprised, and her husband, and children did a great job keeping a party of this magnitude hidden from her. The guest of honor, and her husband are big doo-wop fans, and that style of music was the highlight of cocktail and dinner hours. The dancing though ran the gamut of 50’s & 60’s to some surprise hits of today, including the Cupid Shuffle, and the husband of the Birthday Girl learning how to “Dougie”. Overall it was a great crowd and a very fun night, for not only the guests, but for me as the entertainer as well.
