Mona's, Radegast, Bickford and more!!

I love the gentle bite of autumnal evenings and the fresh morning breezes as the leaves begin to change colors.  This year the change in season also brings some exciting new events in my musical life!  A flurry of activity in late September and early October with my quartet, EAQ (perhaps a more creative name will be come soon) and my larger New Orleans/early swing band, Garden Party.

I'm very excited about both of these groups and am looking forward to recording with them later this fall.  Stay tuned for a Kickstarter project funding announcement soon for a new album!

Mona's Tuesday night 'hang' with Dennis Lichtman's band Mona's Hot Four has become a fantastic weekly event, here is Will Friedwald's Wall Street Journal Review.  I'm pleased to be playing right before Dennis and the guys and look forward to introducing more people to this fun scene!
