Another wonderful audience tonight in Verona, NY at Turning Stone Resort Casino. A full house and many in the audience went from smiles to tears and back again as Roger performed his classics. Roger had a special fan in the house - three-year-old Jacob - who had the time of his life at his first concert with his mom and dad and staying awake for the whole show! Jacob's mom, who is expecting next month, said the baby was dancing the whole concert! Roger was happy to play Jacob's favorite song, Dreamer, for him. Our contest winners, Julie and Tony, were ecstatic to have won and had a great time backstage. They brought their teenage son, too, who is a big fan. It was so nice to see so many families.
Every staff member we encountered, including the General Manager and Director of Entertainment, said they can't wait for us to return. The Vice President of Entertainment Sales and Marketing was beaming after the show and said he was so pleased with the concert and Roger's sharing of warmth with the audience. One of the production guys who said he has worked at the venue for 12 years said he has never attended a show where the audience applauded as long as they did. The ushers were clearly enjoying the show, too. Some of them were clapping and singing along to Give a Little Bit. Thank you, Verona, for a great night! Next stop on the Breakfast in America Tour - Englewood, NJ tomorrow night at the bergenPAC (Bergen Performing Arts Center). Off we go!
