“Perched upon a tall stool, he made friends with everyone who wandered near, pulling out his thick publicity notebook and leafing page by page past head shots, performance photos, announcements, reviews and a complete menu of wedding, bar mitzvahs and other festivals of song. “This,” he said proudly, “was my gig in Vegas in 2003. I sang for crowded rooms in minor casinos. I just want to get back there.” By day, he delivered packages in short pants. The Big E took singing seriously, and while he sang karaoke for pleasure and practice, his intention was always to get paid. The older ladies loved him, his style, his rat pack songs and his gentle sweetness. I couldn’t help but like the Big E.”
