Quote from Deborah: “Since my last show with The Flagpole Radio Café, I joined a rock band and toured the world with legendary guitarist Steve Vai — thus fulfilling one of my life’s big bucket list goals.  Coming back to the Flagpole feels like coming back home.  It’s such a privilege to open the 2013-2014 season of The Flagpole Radio Café.  I had so much fun at the last show and I can’t wait to see everyone again – both on the stage and in the seats.”
