Former Harlette Shayna Steele Plays “Joe’s Pub” Aug 18, 2012

Shayna’s Invite:

2 singers, 2 bands, 1 night. On August 18th, I share the stage with the incredible Amy Lynn + The Gunshow. I told Amy the other day she reminds me of Bette Midler in her bathhouse days. Her energy is NOT to be missed. Read More

By Kenneth Wilk
May 19, 1973

Bette Midler is a superstar!

Now that’s quite a statement to make, especially at the beginning of the article. However, those of you who might happen to be acquainted with Ms. Midler know just how much of a superstar she is. Bette just released a single entitled Boogie Woogle Bugle Boy that has the makings of a gigantic hit. It comes from an album that I apparently overlooked back in the winter, but one which I shall give mention to now. Read More
