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.
