Toledo Art Walk – 2011

Hank Sinatra was back as the featured act at the recent Toledo Art Walk. Hank and his band was such a big hit last year, they were asked to appear again.

Headlining the Toledo Art Walk

Robin, Steve, and Hank

Hank Sinatra and friends were the featured act at the recent Toledo Art Walk.  For all three days of the Labor Day weekend, we entertained the crowds in this jewel of an art community on the Oregon Coast. 

Thanks to the energy and vision of artist Michael Gibbons, this was the 17th annual […]

Sunset on the Coast

I was setting up for one of my regular Saturday gigs on the Bay House in Lincoln City.  The sun was going down, so a grabbed my camera for a quick snapshot.

Wedding Singer

Hank gives the gift of his song

A few weeks ago, Hank and his honey attended the wedding of long-time friends, Adam and Jenny DuVander.

At the reception, word got around that Hank was ‘in the house’ (as the kids say), and I was asked to sing for the happy couple. 

(Interesting tidbit… South of the border, the […]
