by Stephen Hanks - Jul 8, 2014

Musical Director and pianist extraordinaire Jon Weber can play every imaginable musical style and for a wide variety of cabaret and concert singers, but this superlative keyboardist is really a jazz man at heart.

And when some of the students in the audience are among the most accomplished instrumentalists in New York, you realize that your teacher is a virtuoso. (more...)

Dennis Frahmann Releases THE FINNISH GIRL About a Multi-Generational Finnish American Family
by BWW News Desk - Aug 26, 2014

A multi-generational story about a Finnish American family in Wisconsin and how their American dream threatens to become a nightmare, Publishers Weekly calls the novel 'Melancholic, brooding, and cut-to-the-bone incisive, this is a tale to remember.' 'The Finnish Girl' is about how secrets kill. Not just those you choose to keep from others, or even those that others guard from you. There remains those secrets that you so desperately hide from yourself. They all catch up with Lempi Makinen Lahti. When Lempi's teenage son Danny discovers her suicide, he seeks to solve The Mysteries that defined her life and death. A pack of letters and clippings hidden in an old family trunk may be the only keys to understanding both his mother's past and his own future. 'The Finnish Girl' is a richly told tapestry of interwoven characters-the family patriarch who emigrates from Finland to the United States to create his own future, a son who turns his back on his home as part of an ill-fated mission to Russia during the Depression, the elderly mother who faces deportation in an America driven by fear during the Red Scare, and the young Finnish girl who cares too much about the injustices she sees. Decisions in one generation propel another on unexpected paths, until one family's hopes for the American dream threaten to become its nightmare. 'The Finnish Girl,' a semi-finalist in the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition, is available in both print and ebook format.
