What Sh-Boom fans are saying
This just in from a Chicago area fan: "We drove from CHicago to see Sh-Boom after finding a listing on the Internet. An INCREDIBLE night!!!! I have never danced so much in my 53 years. As an experienced musician... I can say... all of you are the best. Many thanks... you were really worth the drive and motel stay."

Sh-Boom Gossip and Gab
Sh-Boom performed for long-time friend (and former roadie) Eric Steinnerd's wedding reception at the beautiful Sheldon Hall. Congratulations to Eric and Lori. Speaking of weddings... Sh-Boom recently entertained the Missouri funeral Home Director's Association. All puns aside, they were a very lively crowd. Congratulations to Sh-Boom fan, Mary Kay, on her recent birthday. It is the policy of the Yak and it's writers not to disclose sensitive information such as a lady's age. Therefore, we can say only that it was a privilege for the band to perform at her party - especially since we had also performed at her 30th celebration 10 years ago.
The annual Night of Miracles Dance raised over $30,000 to benefit the children's hospitals of St. Louis. Thanks again to Gil Engler and his staff at Children's Miracle Network(CMN), Marriott Hotels, LDS Audio & Lighting, DJ & Christine Kent, Pete Colombo, and the individual band members for their time and donations. Many thanks also to each of you who support CMN of Greater St. Louis.
Generally speaking, the band members and the entourage of celebrity guest artists who travel with Sh-Boom get along famously. There was recently, however, a minor backstage altercation between Jake Blues and Elvis over a little issue of stolen toilet paper from the dressing room. We're happy to report that the two have since turned the other cheek, wiped the slate clean, and put the matter behind them!
Sh-Boom brought the beaches of Mexico and the Caribbean to the dance floor of the Casa Loma Ballroom for Spring Break '03. The band turned up the heat with four hours of tropical flavored rock 'n' roll, and limbo & hula-contests. Let's do it again next year and call the sequel, Son of the Beach.
