She also had the opportunity to live in Japan for a year to work at Tokyo Disneyland, and then literally traveled around the world as Lead Vocalist with Jean Ann Ryan Productions on the Royal Cruise Line. After moving to Raleigh in 1996, she immediately joined the Central Park Band and was a member until 2008 when she took a brief hiatus to spend more time with her husband Kevin and daughter Caitlin.

This band is TOPS! Their versatility, professionalism, and overall talent are stupendous. North Carolina is very lucky to have such an outstanding band. The fact that they can play jazz, motown, classic rock, and contemporary music so well is remarkable. This band is by far the best wedding band I've ever heard. They have my highest endorsement.

WOW! I can't tell you how much our guest enjoyed this band. We had a very diverse group and no matter what song, there was a crowd on the dance floor. Early in the evening they really got the guests moving and didn't stop till the last minute! People are still calling and asking me about the "Central Park Band"! Best Band for any event!!!
