I’m hoping you might be able to make it out tomorrow night, or perhaps this weekend? I’ll be playing with my trio tomorrow/Thursday, May 16th at Catalina Jazz Club http://www.catalinajazzclub.com/. They are at 6725 Sunset Blvd in Hollywood near Highland. Catalina Jazz Club is the oldest and most famous of all jazz clubs in the entire Los Angeles region. Good food, (I always have the caprese salad), and even covered valet parking. The show is at 8:30pm, but most people come between 7-7:30 for dinner first, or come around 8pm for a drink and a little bite and that gives time to chat with friends, or meet new people. You can get tix online, or call: 323.466.2210. Gregg August is on bass and Jaimeo Brown on drums. They are both terrific musicians I am very excited to play with.
Or…. If you feel in the mood for Vegas, I have heard that the new Smith Center in Las Vegas is one of the nicest performing arts complexes in the US: http://www.thesmithcenter.com/events/ Don’t worry – the shows on Friday May 17 and Saturday May 18, are at 7pm, giving you ample time to go out afterwards too. I’ll be with the same trio there as well.
Any of these shows would be a nice start to the weekend and something a little different to do, while supporting the arts. Hope you can make it, but whatever you do, have a great upcoming weekend!
