We hired Brian to do the entertainment at our recent reunion banquet. 137 former sailors and their ladies of the USS Wainwright Veterans Association enjoyed his jokes, stories and the way he engaged the crowd. Brian arrived at the beginning of the evening and joined us for dinner before his time on stage. He listened to all that was going on and was able to tailor his act to fit our particular group, with some good-natured ribbing of the more prominent members of the association. What he and Gigsalad charged was more than reasonable. If your group is looking for something other than the same old, same old, check him out. There are plenty of videos of his act on line as well as his own "BTS on the Road" productions.
Brian is also a philosopher. No, he doesn't have a degree, but he has written two books of wisdom and wise sayings called "Make Love Not Warts", and " Four Score and Seven Beers Ago..." which are available now on Amazon.com,Trafford.com(The publisher's web site) or for a signed copy you can order from this website .
