After Europe, Regi returned to the states with extended stays in Hawaii and New Orleans.

Regi fills his daytimes with perfomances at many of the bay areas assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. "I love playing these places because i get to play all the old songs i have learned throughout my career and i continue to learn more old songs. I also love the feedback and smiles i get from my audiences. it's very rewarding."
If you catch Regi in a rare solo performance and you're likely to hear his early influences like Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, or Little Richard, the Beatles, Leon Russell or you might hear the blues of Willie Dixon or Muddy Waters, the boogie woogie of Pete Johnson and Meade Lux Lewis, maybe the ragtime and swing of Fats Waller and Benny Goodman or the jump of Louis Jordan, sometimes even Willie Nelson or Hank Williams, how about a Nat King Cole ballad, definitely some New Orleans and lots more. Regi will surprise you with his repertoire. One thing for sure, it'll be a rockin' good time!
