Hi! I was selected to compete in Alice Cooper's Proof Is In The Pudding Christmas Talent Search! I wanted to humbly ask for everyone's support...audience response is a big part of what I'll be judged upon and the winner opens up for Alice at the Dodge Theater in December! I'll be performing sometime between 615pm and 830 but I won't know exactly when until I arrive so if you can please show up early, that would be awesome....it's all-ages, no cover. Your support will be greatly appreciated! Joe
