The serendipity of this show!
A few months ago, Daisy invited Frank to sing in one of her concerts at the Paramount Theater in Peekskill New York. They performed their own version of the classic “Stormy Monday Blues”… The performance was so well received by the audience that, by popular demand, Daisy and Frank decided to create a show together…And where better to do their very first show together but at the iconic Iridium?
