    BERTIE HIGGINS: SINGER/SONGWRITER "KEY LARGO"

    in Entertainment

    “We had it all, just like Bogie and Bacall,” is the lyric that touched hearts and imaginations and allowed us to sail away to Key Largo. The songwriter? Bertie Higgins, whose Key Largo blew a hole in the U.S. charts when it reached number one in the nation, and went on to become an international hit. For Higgins, it was only the beginning. Wednesday, March 16, 3 pm ET Bertie Higgins joins Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. Come sail away.


    Like his great, great grandfather, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German poet who penned "Faust", Bertie Higgins is a storyteller. Bertie, who once supported himself as a sponge diver, began his career in show business at the age of twelve as a ventriloquist. But music was in his heart and he became drummer for the Tommy Roe band, The Roemans. He toured the world alongside the Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Tom Jones, Roy Orbison, Manfred Mann, Peter and Gordon, The Dave Clark Five and many more. Tiring of the rigors of the road and yearning to make his own musical statement, Bertie left The Roemans, put down his drumsticks, picked up a guitar and began crafting music and lyrics. The rest, as they say is history.


    Trop rock, yacht rock, romance, Key Largo, sail away with Halli and her guest, singer/songwriter, musician Bertie Higgins for an hour of romance and reminiscing on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, March 16, 3 pm ET. For more about the show visit Halli Casser-Jayne.com.
