National Anthems, Opening Ceremonies and Dedications
I have performed our National Anthem the “Star Spangled Banner” over 4000 times during my career and I take the greatest pride in this presentation! Some of these venues include: 30 years opening the World's Oldest and Premier Marathon....The Boston Marathon! The Esplanade with the Boston Pops, Fenway Park for the Boston Red Sox, Gillette Stadium for the New England Patriots, and TD Garden for both the Boston Bruins and Celtics, Washington DC for the Marine Corps Marathon, and Hard Rock Stadium for the Miami Dolphins. One my most memorable performances of our National Anthem came at the resume of play for the NFL after the attacks of 9/11 to pen the game for the New England Patriots vs the New York Jets. This performance has been included as part of the 9/11 Museum in NYC.
In addition, I perform 30 Foreign National Anthems in native dialect for visiting dignitaries and sporting events. If you are in need of a Foreign National Anthem to pay respect to someone in your group or at your event please give me a call!
Due to my extensive experience with military protocol and commands I work seamlessly with any color or honor guard unit that may open your event. I will insure that your opening ceremonies will not only be dynamic and inspiring but will maintain the highest level of protocol and decorum! Your audience will fill with pride and patriotism!
There are many instances when local groups, cities, or towns will dedicate a location, a monument, a flagpole, a building or street to memorialize or commemorate people or events in history. This is a great time to contact me and help you create the perfect celebration! Especially if your city or town is hosting the "Moving Wall" and you need a powerful and moving tribute.
