Long time no blog! It has been a an absolutely crazy busy couple of weeks and I haven’t had a spare second to breath! First of all my wife Alana is about ready to pop! Our second baby isn’t due until July 17th but the doctor says that as of Monday (June 27th) we should be on HIGH ALERT!! Such bad planning on our part but Mother Nature has designs of her own so what can do!
I’m hoping to make it through all my gigs this week: Tuesday, June 28th with The NIGHT CRAWLERS at THE CELLAR, Thursday, June 30th with THE TILDEN WEBB TRIO at THE CELLAR and Saturday, July 3rd doing a private party with the great BUCKY PIZZARELLI! After that bring on the baby!
We have officially announced the NEW YORK WITH WEEDS 2012 TOUR which will take place from March 24th to March 31st, 2012. We’re only accepting 30 people and I’m very confident that it’s going to sell out based on the success of this year’s tour. We have some very different/exciting thing planned for this tour. It’s a bit to early to announce but visit the website for more info and updated itinerary as the summer progresses!
After jazz fest ends things calm down a bit and I can be at home with family and new baby. Yahoo! I’m excited and there are some very exciting things upcoming in future months:
