Well I’d like to keep those “Happy Spring” wishes going, but the weather doesn’t seem to be co-operating does it? Drought-scape SoCal has rain today, the north- east had recent snow, Arkansas got flooded and it’s snowing in Chicago right now! No matter what the weather, if you’re looking for and easy relaxed night in NYC Sunday please come by my last show of the season at ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL/Stage 3 at 8:30 pm – there are even cheap tickets online: https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1090601. I also have a stop in Boston for a Berklee College for a Board meeting then a small performance in support of The Chicago Lighthouse for People Who are Blind or Visually Impaired, so I’m hoping the weather will settle down!
THANK YOU everyone who not only came to the Pepperdine show and Portland shows, but we had a really fun show, (and full house) at SFJazz – quite a few family members at all those shows – I really appreciate that! Thanking everyone at radio too – spending most of Jan-March on the JazzWeek Radio chart and still on the ZMR radio chart too for our release NOCTURNAL. Your support is really appreciated!
