2017 Villain and Saint7Here’s the news about two upcoming gigs: one on Sunday, October 22, 4 to 6 p.m., at Villain & Saint  in Bethesda; and another on Saturday, November 25, from 8 to 11 p.m., at Mr. Henry’s (Thanksgiving weekend!).

Joining me at Villain & Saint will be With me will be pianist Jim Levy,  Percy White on bass, and drummer Ele Rubenstein. Jim and Ele will be with me again at Mr. Henry’s, along with Ethan Foote on bass.

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.

I told my wife that I didn’t think this gig would compete with a big, exciting event her organization, Yachad, is having a week later in D.C. So prove me right, and please consider going to both.

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.
