Hi All! It’s been a minute, but there are some excellent things on the horizon for the Trio and I. Check it out!
Summer gigs (make me feel fine):
August 27th – 7pm – Hunters Point South Park – Free, family friendly
I actually scouted this place out. It just to the left of Gantry Plaza in Long Island City. This is the GREEN addition to that whole plaza directly across from midtown Manhattan. The view is still phenomenal and the sunset colors are something to see. We’ve been lucky to play against this backdrop several times and have some great shots from these gigs. The trio will be playing from 7-8pm and we will have horns for that show, which includes Kevin Batchelor singing a few numbers as well. Come bring the family, beach blankets, chairs, food, etc. There is a great shop there that sells food, beer and wine as well. Here is a link to the site.
September 3rd and October 1st – First Thursdays at Espresso 77 – 9pm – Free, all ages
Can’t forget that. 7 years and still going strong. I’ll be hitting the solo thing pretty hard those for those two shows, busting out a lot of catalogue. Come on down.
BIG NEWS AT ESPRESSO 77 – They are expanding and they need our help. Check out the homepage above for details on how to give and what you can get for giving.
Fall Gigs (no song parody for this one, sorry)
September 26th – 11pm – LIC Bar – 21+
While this is a trio gig as well, this is also the return of KEVIN & JONNY. KB and I will be playing originals as well as some classic American and Jamaican Rhythm & Blues covers. We love this place and its people. Come join us.
The Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival – October 16-18
I am happy and humbled to have been accepted into the 2nd annual Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival in the heart of Hill Country, Texas. This up close and personal festival is geared towards keeping it raw – just the writer and his/her voice with his/her own guitar. I’m in some talented company and am looking forward to bring my style of writing into the fold. Thanks to Jim Halfpenny and all the good folks that enjoyed my new record and asked me to come join.
Somewhere You’ve Been CD – Still going strong
I’m happy to say that we still feel fresh with our debut release. If you haven’t picked one up, here is an easy link to get one – hard copy and download both available. Still haven’t reached my goal to fund the next one, so please help.
