JACKSON SKATE COMPANY
My brother Don and I have kept actively involved in the world of figure skating. Don travels extensively, skating, conducting seminars and promoting the Jackson line of figure skates. He tours extensively with the NHL Oldtimers Hockey Challenge US-Canada-Russia tour [entertaining the audience between periods].
I've been kept busy promoting the Jackson products through this web site. We'd like to hear from you at anytime and welcome your comments and suggestions.
 

MUSIC...
The rest of my time is spent promoting my music. Throughout the years I've written pop songs with my good buddy and music collaborator, composer Dave Ostrovsky.
We've written a love song named 'Sparkle' for Tony Bennett and also 'Melody' a love song to a song [really]
Versions of these songs are available on the internet at MP3.com in instant play. If you want to a permanent copy you can download a copy [you'll need Windows Media Player or RealPlayer ,they're free!]

If your interested in hearing one of these songs, just click on the song title.

MUSIC...
We've had success with 'Smokey Dreams' and even had that great skater, Don Jackson, skate to our song 'Juke Box Lady' on Stars on Ice [I wonder how I lucked into that?].
 
and MUSIC...
I mentioned I promoted my music, but I couldn't do it without the help of another buddy, Gino Empry. Gino is one of the most successful and sought after entertainment specialists in North America. He's worked with all the great stars and helped many others become stars. Click on his name to visit his site, you'll be surprised how many entertainers he's been associated with [he's even worked with skater Toller Cranston]
Gino was Tony Bennett's personal world manager for 12 years and they remain great buddies. In the photo on the right Gino's pretending to sell me singer/painter Tony's gift to him of Tony's 1973 'Red Roses' and I'm pretending that I could afford it.
