Sh-Boom Gossip and Gab
New Year's Eve Remembered?
By Hearthrob Rob Miller
The grand New Years Eve celebration with Sh-Boom at the Renaissance Airport Hotel proved to be another memorable evening for all. Well not exactly! I, for one, retain only fuzzy images of the festivities. It started innocently enough with a glass of champagne, hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, dinner, dancing, and more cocktails.
It was about the band's second set (my 4th Cosmopolitan) that things started getting weird. I swear I saw Johnny Cash on stage with Sh-Boom and he was quite alive. My double vision then kicked in about the time the Little Surfer Girl(s) hit the stage. Not only did there seem to be two grass skirted surfer girls, but I noticed at one moment she appeared to be rather cute... then I looked again and she appeared more like a short, bearded Italian dude. Soon I was seeing not one -- not two --, but THREE Elvi!!! Wow, time for coffee.
As it turns out, "Johnny Cash" was John Cenatiempo who had won the Renaissance Idol contest on KTRS radio. John, voted #1 from among a host of contestants, won the opportunity to sing with Sh-Boom. John, in a black cowboy hat, performed a rousing rendition of Cash's Folsom Prison Blues.
The surfer girls, in reality, were stagehands, Pete Colombo and Christine Kent, who pulled off a little prank on the band. The Three Elvis's... hmmm, I'm still not sure who the three Elvis's were.
Speaking of hula girls, vocalist Screamin' Scott and wife, Leslie, took advantage of a Sh-Boom hiatus to visit the Hawaiian Islands. Although the couple enjoyed their trip, Scott was reportedly disillusioned by the inland scenery, comparing it roughly to that of High Ridge. We're not sure what that means? It must be that there are two broken beach buggies in many driveways of Waikiki!
Thinking of still more hula girls, you should see the wonderful conga drum that our friends Jim and Cecelia presented to the band as a gift. The drum, festooned with the Sh-Boom logo, now adorns the stage at each performance.
Still thinking of hula girls...
