Happy New Year!

Hope you all had a good Xmas. We had a great time in the Drop Inn. It was a fantastic atmosphere over the Xmas period and very busy. Tonight should be another great night as we have had lots of reservations. Should be very lively! Happy New Year to you all!

My Christmas Song Played on BBC Radio on Christmas Day!

My Christmas song, Christmas Time is Magical, sung by my 12 year old son, Luke was played on BBC Radio Lancashire on the Gerald Jackson show on Christmas night. If you would like to listen to it you can click go to BBC Radio Lancashire's website and on the top right hand corner click on Listen Again. Then click on Gerald Jackson's show on the 25th December. You can here my song around about 2.45 mins into the show. You can just use the slider button at the bottom of the page to find it.

Very busy in the Drop Inn!

It was still very busy last night in the Drop Inn. We thought it may quieten down a little as it does sometimes just before Xmas, but no, it was heaving last night.

Today we have been up to Puerto De La Cruz to collect two people who are staying in our apartment in Playa de Las Americas for two weeks. We decided, therefore, to make a day of it and went to the Monastery Restaurant. It is a lovely old Monastery that has been converted into a restaurant. There are lots of animals there and some run around the restaurant! It was all nicely decorated for Christmas as you can see from the above photo!! I had roast lamb and we also tried goose! The weather was a little different in the North and it even rained on the way home.

A surprise visitor to Tenerife!


Yesterday we had a surprise visitor! It was Kris (Buffalo) Robins!! Many of you will remember Kris Robins who worked here as a Country Singer. He worked for a long time in the Las Vegas Bar and before that with me as a duo called "ALIAS" in the Acapulco Bar back in 1992!!

He is now married to Joel, who is French, and is living in Paris! He may pop down to the Drop Inn on Sunday night to relive a little bit of ALIAS. If he does, then we will post it on here!

Ron and his Ron Miel


Here is Ron drinking his Ron Miel. Ron Miel is a Canarian liqueur made from Rum and Honey. Some people like drinking it if they have a sore throat or a cold, however, Ron didn´t have either!

Last Night in The Drop Inn


Two more happy faces in the Drop Inn last night!

Very Busy in the Drop Inn

It is very, very busy now at the Drop Inn. I start singing at 8.30pm and I would suggest you get here early to get a good seat. Many people come every night to see me and like to reserve their table every night. This is okay if you come in early. Look forward to seeing you soon!!!

The Drop Inn on 11th November

Last night was a very busy night in the Drop Inn. Lots of familiar faces back. For many it was the first time in the Drop Inn and I am pleased to say they all really enjoyed the atmosphere. It is just like the old Acapulco Days.

It is especially good now that the weather has started to cool down at nights. To be outside on a cold windy terrace is no fun!! The weather in the winter can be changeable. In fact, at the moment it has just started to rain outside!! Thank god, I am inside tonight!

The Drop Inn is Open Again!!

Just to let you know that I am now back in The Drop Inn. It was closed for a few days due to problems with noise. Thankfully it has now been sorted out. Unfortunately, here in Tenerife it only takes one person to make a complaint about noise and it can cause lots of problems. I am not a particulary loud artist and this is the first time that I have had this happen. Unfortunately, it was not actually the Drop Inn that was causing the problems, but another venue close by.
Anyway, I am glad to say things are back to normal now. We are looking forward to a busy November with lots of familiar faces due back.

This is a little clip from last night in the Drop Inn. It has been very busy all week with lots of regulars in and lots of new faces too. People seem to be happy with the change. There are never two nights the same in the Drop Inn. The atmosphere has been very good.

Another busy night last night in the Drop Inn. The atmosphere was very good. It was Vicentes night off, so we had no entertainment from him last night, but he will be back tonight for sure! We have been busy putting up the new American flags that have just arrived. Luke is preparing his new Freddie Mercury show! We had English Breakfast in the Drop Inn today. Must say the coffee is the best we have tasted for a long time! So many places serve up horrible coffee!

It was a really good night last night in the Drop Inn. The atmosphere was fantastic and everyone was having a good time. John got up to do a song, just like old times!

The Drop Inn

Well, last night was definitely the busiest so far. People are getting to know where I am now so that´s good! The boss is really enthusiastic and the comments from the customers have been excellent. Its great to work in a venue where everyone is enthusiastic. The comments about the food have been excellent too. I know a lot of people are due to come out in the next few weeks so I hope that they manage to pop along and see me.

New Job

I am pleased to tell you that I will now be working in the Drop Inn. After a lot of careful thought and consideration that is where I decided would be best for me and for our followers. During the winter months it can be cool and the Drop Inn is an inside venue.

Also the drinks prices are much cheaper than we have been used to in other venues and the service is first class. The waiters are all very friendly and want to become involved with the customers. One waiter, in particular, Vicente loves to get up and sing and dance. The boss, Gaspar, who we have known for many years is very keen to turn the Drop Inn into a Country Music and Dancing bar. He has had cabaret acts on for many years and is very enthusiastic about me working there and making a big change. You will not feel that you have to pay up and be out by midnight!!

We think that people will have a lot of fun in the Drop Inn. It will be more like the "old Acapulco days" where we had a lot of good fun and good laughs.

There is ample room for dancing. The food is fantastic and very good quality.

For those of you who do not know where the Drop Inn is, it is on the same street as the Central Park and it is on the corner of the street opposite the Palm Beach Club.

I will be appearing every night from 9pm until late. Look forward to seeing you soon. Please tell everyone you know where I am!!
