Having a Party
Sh-Boom to Welcome in Millennium
The new millennium begins in a few months and there is no better way to
celebrate than with a night of dancing to Sh-Boom at the AAA/4 Diamond
Renaissance St. Louis Hotel. After checking in to your fancy-schmancy hotel
room, come down to the lobby and let the party begin with an hors d'oeuvres
reception and where all of your cocktails are provided for the remainder of
the evening. Then you'll enter the Grand Ballroom and sit down to a gourmet
meal prepared and served by the Hotel Staff. After dinner Sh-Boom takes the
stage and leads you to the final countdown of the millennium. Afterwards you
will head back to your room knowing that a fabulous breakfast buffet will be
waiting for you the next day---along with a late checkout!
Last year this show sold out in September, so make your reservations soon!
Call (314)429-1100 and feel comfortable knowing you have made plans to

Hey Mr. D.J.
Drummer Mike is On-the-Air
While Sh-Boom fans rarely hear from him on stage, long-time Sh-Boom drummer,
"Mighty Mike" Watermann is no stranger to the microphone. Mike is a 37-year
veteran of the radio industry whose career has taken him to several St.
Louis stations including KSLQ and KSD-FM.
In 1994, Mike introduced classic hit radio onto the St. Louis airwaves at
96.3FM (KHITS), where he can be heard on-the-air now from noon to 2:00
weekdays. As KHITS' Program Director, chatting with listeners is what Mike
considers to be the key benefit of being in radio. "People will call
frequently to find out who the artist was on a song...and I'm happy to be a
font of trivial information for them."
Before joining Sh-Boom in 1984, Mike also played drums for several popular
St. Louis bands including Billy Peek, Nick Nixon, and in the 1970's with
Parchment Farm--who once was the opening act for Ted Nugent. He has also
performed numerous times with Chuck Berry and Luther Ingram.
Mike also prepares Sh-Boom's song list for each gig and enjoys acting as
Sh-Boom's resident music Researcher and Historian. Sh-Boom co-founder, Bad
Brad, says "When Mike joined the band in '84, he brought a wealth of
experience and talent to Sh-Boom. We appreciate Mike's 16 years of
dedication to the band." Mike and his wife, Jane have three sons and live in
St. Charles County.
SH-BITS AND SH-BLUNDERS
Sh-Boom Gossip and Gab
Sh-Boom was caught Sh-Moozing with local celebs' at the annual CMN Telethon
in June at Six Flags. The band presented a check for $25,000 to the
Children's Miracle Network of Greater St. Louis and performed "Teenager In
Love" for the WB-11 live broadcast. Sh-Boom also made a cameo appearance on
Sh-Boom's solo bachelor, Hearthrob Rob, is soon to duet in wedded bliss. He
will marry Christine Brandt of Arnold, MO in an August 5th ceremony. Can
anyone suggest a good band for the reception?
Rob also opened the doors to a new business in June. Fastracks Productions
is a multi-track recording studio and music production service. Spread the
word, or give him a call at 636-938-1230.
On the flip side, vocalist Screamin' Scott officially retired from his paper
delivery service. You can no longer blame Scott if your Journal is late!
We finally found out what guitarist Ben Jamin' has been doing with his free
time. It seems that he and friend Steven have been cruising Missouri's river
beds in their new ATV's. Bad Brad, being the adventurous type and not to be
outdone, also went out and bought "a TV". No one in the band has yet had the
nerve to explain to him the difference.
We'll put a wrap on this edition with a quotable quote. On April 28th,
Sh-Boom drummer, Mike Watermann was heard on the air during his lunch-time
requests broadcast, saying, "Alright Sherri, I'll get in on for ya'." Boy,
what these radio personalities won't do for rating during sweeps week!
