Marty about '60s world'

60s World is my way of celebrating Joyce, the woman that I've loved, and who's been the rock of our family, for 60 years. It's 60 years since the start of the decade, 60 years we've been married and 60 years since our gorgeous Kim was born. Every day of my life has been special with Joyce and the family and I wanted to go back to 1960, where it all began. And what better way to celebrate than by bringing back the sound of the 60s with a modern twist. (1)
