Welcome to Front Stage Baby

FrontStageBaby.com was born from my combined love of Live, Front of the Stage concert performances, photography, web authoring and the want to share the excitement I feel at these Front of the Stage performances.

Now in my 16th year as Front Stage Baby, I’ve had the pleasure to experience some of the worlds top music performers!! 

I love the classics too, but nothing beats the excitement of hearing a new tune for the first time and having the feeling of needing to listen and sing to it all the time!
