Joe Feeney

Have you always dreamed of hitting the high notes?

If there's a tenor in the music biz that you can learn how to...look no further than the Lawrence Welk Show's own Joe Feeney!

The native of Grand Island, Nebraska first came to the Maestro by way of University of Nebraska and Arlene Francis' Talent Patrol in 1957, and since has showcased his vocal skills to a national television audience with such favorites as "Danny Boy", "Be My Love", "White Cliffs of Dover" and "Sweet Lelani".

And although he has sung Steve Wonder's, "For Once In My Life"....I don't know if he has ever sung soul, imagine him singing a medley of Barry White songs....he would do very well in my book!

He still sings today, with vigor, especially with his son Chris who has followed in his dad's footsteps and is an accomplished tenor in his own right.

I wish they would include a couple of videos or mp3s to listen to in these blogs!
