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.

Pics from Villain & Saint

I’m thankful to Jamekaa Flowers for taking photos at my April 2 show at Villain & Saint in Bethesda with Harry Appelman (piano), Percy White (bass) and George Oakley (reeds and woodwinds). Here, below are a few shots. If you’re interested, there’s more in the gallery section of this website.

Next Gig: Villain & Saint, Bethesda, Sunday, April 2, 4 to 6 p.m.

Villain and Saint storefrontFor my many friends who live within a comfortable distance of downtown Bethesda and who are more alert in the late afternoon than at night when I usually play, my next gig on Sunday, April 2, from 4 to 6 p.m., at Villain & Saint (7141 Wisconsin Ave., Bethesda, Md.) couldn’t be more convenient. And, at the family-friendly low price of $10 a person (cover charge), it really doesn’t pay to stay home.  (Advance tickets are available here.)

But wait! That’s not all! There are three even bigger reasons you should come: the acclaimed Harry Appelman, on piano; the spectacular Percy White on upright and electric bass; and the magical George Oakley on reeds and flute. Really, these guys are so great that I will have to be careful not to forget to sing as I watch them in awe.

If that’s not enough to get you there, consider Villain & Saint, which describes itself as “a Haight-Ashbury-inspired rock ‘n’ roll music hall,” which obviously has room for the eclectic mix of standard and not-so-standard jazz tunes we’ll be playing. The Villain & Saint kitchen offers “classic bar-fare of hamburgers, loaded nachos, chicken wings and quesadillas and “a standout selection of premium whiskies and bourbons, American beers, and a slew of signature cocktails.” Perfect for a Sunday afternoon in April.

For all those reasons and more, I hope to see you at Villain & Saint on April 2.
