Hello and Happy Easter!
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend. Yesterday I hiked with friends to the waterfall near my home. It’s a great trail through ancient oaks, a sprinkling of wildflowers and some lush poison oak to step around. Everyone on the trail seemed to be smiling and enjoying a sunny day outdoors. At the base of the waterfall we normally see California newts – golden brown water dwellers that look like Gollum-ish geckos hanging out. Besides the year round waterfall surrounded by maiden hair ferns, I love the trail because unlike most Malibu trails, there are no coyotes or rattlesnakes on it, and it really makes a more pleasant hike! ( I did see a mountain lion once though!) When I enter the green umbrella zone under the oaks and step across stones in the stream crossings, I feel like Alice in Wonderland: that I am in another world. Not what you’d normally expect in the greater Los Angeles area, but it’s here.
Well the date at Regatta Bar in Boston is going to be rescheduled. We will not be playing May 3 as scheduled. If you have bought tickets please request a refund. I am sorry for the change, but the Hotel asked us to move the date. I’ll keep you posted on any new dates.
I am looking forward to playing this week at The Junior Blind of America in Los Angeles – a great group, and then May 25 at Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood – know for the good food and great parking. Also scheduled with the band June 8th at Zinc Bar in NYC’s Greenwich Village. I really am in the mood to play so invite your friends or family and come on out! I assure you it will be fun!
“Underground” continues to do great a radio – fans have written that they have been hearing it in Philly and MA. If your station isn’t playing it, I hope it will happen soon!
