PLSN — November 2011

The Industry’s Best: So Happy Together

The 2011 Parnelli Awards, held Oct. 29 at the Peabody Orlando, was an evening of laughs, touching moments and surprises. Parnelli Lifetime Achievement winner Ed Wannebo (above, left), longtime production manager for Kenny Chesney’s tours, would often provide the country singer with a special hand-crafted margarita. Chesney made a surprise appearance on Wannebo’s big night to return the favor. Flo and Eddie (a.k.a. Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan), who kicked off the sold-out show with a faux Lady Gaga bit before more than two dozen Parnelli awards were bestowed upon individuals, companies and products, helped Parnelli executive producer and PLSN publisher Terry Lowe close the show. The trio — Flo, Eddie and Terry — launched an impromptu rendition of (what else?) “Happy Together.” Read the full story on page 28.
