My friend Michael Martocci joined me on the my New Jersey 101.5 morning show to talk about an important event happening on Facebook Tuesday night at 8 p.m.

Michael, the voice of Ol’ Blue Eyes, and our friend Mark Rivera, Billy Joel’s saxophonist, performed with my friend Dean Schneider and the Ol’ Blue Eyes Orchestra to bring the best of Sinatra and Billy Joel to the stage at the Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank. It is surreal to see the performance in an empty theater, but Michael, Mark and Dean are doing their best to help the Basie survive this shutdown.

I am looking forward to the day that I’ll return to the stage joining my friends for an event in front of a packed house! Stay tuned …
