Debby Boone made a long awaited return to the Bear’s Den Saturday evening. She was scheduled to play last year but had to postpone the show. The wait was worth it for her fans as she gave s a splendid performance. Backed by a solid five-piece band that went through a solid 90-minute set which featured a lot of family ties.

Boone, who is the daughter of legendary crooner Pat Boone, told many stories that she weaved into her set in song. She also had the late great Rosemary Clooney as a mother-in-law. She also told stories about her encounters with such legends of the music business as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. Very interesting to say the least.

Boone of course is a Grammy award winner who took the world by storm in 1977 with her smash “You Light Up My Life” as it topped the singles charts for ten straight weeks. She later focused her career on country and christian music as well.

Boone played many songs from her recent album Swing This which came out in 2013. As she told her stories she also had a video screen which showed many images of her family friends and acquaintances related to the songs.

She saved her big song for last as the fans went home not only hearing one of the biggest songs ever in the history of recorded music, but also was able to learn a lot more about Boone, her family and all her neat ties in the entertainment industry. A satisfying evening for all.
