Big-time Correction: Next Gig is on Saturday, July 30, 8 to 11 p.m., Mr. Henry’s

Someone in the Office of Bonehead Mistakes at Weintraub Music’s North American headquarters was under the impression that Jeff’s next gig was on July 23, as already advertised. But no. The gig is actually on SATURDAY, JULY 30, 8 to 11 p.m. at Mr. Henry’s, 601 Pennsylvania Ave., SE, Washington, D.C.  The search is now on for whoever is responsible for this unforgivably embarrassing blunder.

As before, the July 30 show will spotlight tunes by Bob Dylan. 

There will be a cover of $15, plus a food or drink minimum of $15. Click here to get advance tickets. I’m springing for ice water for the first 65 guests. 

Just so you’re not confused, at 6 p.m., the dining room is open, and you’re welcome — indeed, encouraged — to go then. Music begins at 8 p.m. Also, on the day of the show, they close the online ticketing. But tickets may still be available. Please call Mr. Henry’s the find out at (202) 546-8412.

I hope you can make it. ON THE 30TH!

NEXT GIG: Saturday, April 23 at Mr. Henry’s

I’m going to be back again to Mr. Henry’s, 601 Pennsylvania Ave., SE, Washington, D.C., on Saturday, April 23, 8 to 11 p.m. This will be my second attempt to spotlight some tunes by (or made famous by) Harry Nilsson, whose songwriting, recording and singing was a big and influential presence on the late-1960s and ’70s American pop music landscape. For more on him, click here.

I’m excited not only to be singing the music of Nilsson (among much else), but also to be joined by some terrific musicians, including: Harry Appelman on keyboards, Ben Tufts on drums and David Jernigan on bass.

There will be a cover of $15, plus a food or drink minimum of $15. Click here to get advance tickets.

CANCELLED: Jan. 22 show at Mr. Henry’s

Alas, I have to cancel the show I had scheduled at Mr. Henry’s on Saturday, January 22.

I’m booked again there on Saturday, April 23, and I’m hoping once again to feature songs by Harry Nilsson. Please keep that in mind. More to come on that

Meantime, click here to see Nilsson in one of his rare live performances playing “1941,” the semi-autobiographic song he recorded in 1967 for his album Pandemonium Shadow Show.

My Next Gig: IN PERSON at Mr. Henry’s, June 26

 Mr. Henry’s restaurant, at 601 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington, D.C., has finally reopened for in-person music performances after about 15 months of quiet in its upstairs space (yay!), and they’ve invited me to come back and perform on Saturday, June 26, 8 to 11 p.m. (yay!). I’m thrilled to once again be singing in the same room with the band — this time Harry Appelman on piano and  Percy White on bass — and with an audience. The virtual concerts were something, but nothing nearly as satisfying — for me and probably for the few who tuned to into listen — as the real thing.

If you’re going, I strongly urge you to make your reservation through this ticketing app. The cost? A mere $10 per person, plus a light processing fee. 

In addition to the music — jazz and other hard-to-label categories of music — you’ll can get food and drinks from the Mr. Henry’s kitchen and bar.

I’ll be sorry not to be able to play to all the people living outside the D.C. area, which was one of the benefits of virtual concerts. But this will be fun and refreshing — at least for me and hopefully for everyone who comes by.

Thanks and I hope to see you there.

Next Gig: Mr. Henry’s Virtual Concert, May 22

Please join me on Saturday, May 22, 6 to 7 p.m. (Eastern U.S. Time), when I’ll be performing in a Mr. Henry’s virtual “Living Room Concert,” via the restaurant’s Facebook Live feed. Click here to view it live or at any other time, as it will be recorded and archived on the Mr. Henry’s Facebook page.
