Minton's 2nite - Domaine LIC Wednesday - Freddy's Bar Thursday

Greetings.  I yet again find myself in crazy deadline land, so I'll cut straight to the chase.  I'll not beat around the bush.  I'll get right to the point.  I'll not dillydally.  I'll not dawdle.  I'll not take the scenic route.  I'll go as the crow flies.  It'll be straight ahead, no chaser.  No pre-roll.  Let's get to the skinny.  No need to sugar coat.  We'll cut out the dead wood.   Let's get to it.

Tonight, I'll be playing at Minton's in Harlem with /Queen Esther in my first of two nights with her featuring the music of Billie Holiday.  

Tomorrow I'll be leading a trio playing for your wine, cheese, and oystering pleasure at Domaine Bar a Vins in LIC

Thursday I'll be playing with the The Pre-War Ponies in Park Slope Brooklyn at Freddy's Bar.

Domaine Wine Bar LIC 2morrow - Barbes Thurs + more

Greetings.  I was outta town and outta my head.  Now I'm back in town but not back in me head.  I'm still in a haze from travel and a crazy deadline, but that won't stop me from sharing my rather unstable mentality with all you nice folks.  I know.  So good of me.  Oy.

Tomorrow I'll be playing within stumbling distance of me home at Domaine Bar a Vins in LIC, leading a trio playing jazz and jazz-ish music (if you say "jazzy" you'll earn an eye-roll from the likes of me) for your wine, cheese, and oystering pleasure.  I think it's totally awesome that I'll be joined by Jon Cowherd on the piano and Tim Luntzel on the bass.  Seriously.  It'll be a hang.

Thursday I'll be playing in The Park Slope in The Brooklyn at The Barb├Ęs with The Pre-War Ponies and we'll play The music as we love to do on The second Thursday of The month.

Saturday I'll join the Vernon Horns with the Big Daddy Project as we, yet again, export a heaping helping of funky rock from Queens to that little island of note between the East River and the Hudson... this time in the Bowery at The Bowery Electric.

Sunday afternoon I'll be again with the Ponies playing a really nice house concert in a beautiful home in Chelsea.  This will be a wonderful, relaxing way to really check out the band... RSVP is required (details below)

In other news, I'm excited (a word that's difficult to say in the state of mind I'm in right now) to say that Peg + Cat was nominated for a total of SIX Emmy awards this year, including a nomination with my name on it for "Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition."  Very cool.

All the deets are on the gig schedule page... 


Take care!
