So another Buffalonian has left our city to find his fortune in Hollywood, CA.

My friend and fellow voice talent Dan Lenard has moved his family out to California which is a loss for our area but also a loss for The American Legion Band of the Tonawandas, Post 264, where Dan has served as Master of Ceremonies for a while now.

The band is very successful. They’ve won state, national and international band championships. Heck, they’ve even played Carnegie Hall in New York City.

But now with Dan going off to pan for gold in Cali, the band needed a new MC.

So the band asked if I would do the live announcing for their shows (Dan told them about me). Last night was my first show and everyone said it went well.

All I remember was that it was hot. Like 90+ degrees hot and the sun was blasting the stage. At least I got to go backstage between my on-stage parts, the poor band members were out there the whole time but they didn’t miss a note.

It was nice to do some live announcing again and it’s nice doing it with a talented group of people.
