Published Rates Rule!
 
I believe in publishing Standard Fees.  In this way,
everyone sees the same rates... and should know that
s/he is obtaining equal entertainment for a given fee. 
 
 
The Point:  Standard Rates Peg The Rate.
You will never pay more..... even if you call
at the last minute, and I have an open date.
 
Rates Rule  -  Not Opportunistic Pricing!

There is an email form for your use at the lower part of the Home Page.

Fees are based upon the customary time and effort required to deliver my entertainment.
There are factors which can drastically alter this time. These are called "tough loads," "hostile environments," and "extending hours." Rather than raise the rates for all to insure against the extra time and expense, I prefer to specifically charge an event if appropriate. 
 
Usually, once a Contingient Fee is understood,
the host / event planner and I work to modify,
 or even eliminate the charge.

"You Don't Have To Be A Star"
(To Be In My Show)
MARILYN McCOO & BILLY DAVIS
#1 for 1 week - Top 40 for 18 weeks
#1 R&B Hit for 1 week
First charted 10/26/76
 
MARILYN McCOO & BILLY DAVIS
 
Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis were both in the Fifth Dimension and are married to each other.  In 1977, they hosted a TV variety show.  Marilyn then co-hosted the TV hit, "Solid Gold." Besides her Solid Gold voice (and the Solid Gold Dancers) what remains most remarkable about the show to me are the two guys (Andy Gidd 1981-1982 and Rex Smith 1982-1983) who the producers put with Marilyn before settling on her, alone for the 1983-1984 season.  Let's face it, it was a show of good looking, talented women... And even men, who would otherwise be attractive, looked drab compared to Marilyn, and sounded much the same. 
 
Andy Gibb was the fourth and youngest brothers of Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb... better known as "The Bee Gees."  However, except for a few ocassions, he did not sing with the Bee Gees.  However, he had a MONSTER solo run from 5/77 to 11/78 wduring which he charted 4 GOLD Records and 1 Platinum.
 
Rex Smith was from the theater. He had two hits to chart the Top 40 of which one, "You Take My Breath Away" reached #10 & GOLD in 1979.
