Solo Piano This Month at Little Gem Saloon – Smoke N Bones opening up for Nth Power at Maison – One Love at Mirliton Festival!

Hey yall,

This fall is looking like a busy and exciting one with some nice-looking gigs right in time for Halloween season.

Last Wednesday I started a new happy hour solo piano set at the Little Gem Saloon, an upscale little restaurant bar downtown. I’m there Wednesdays from 5-7:30 playing my favorite jazz and blues with a few personal favorites sprinkled in – I’m excited to get to play my own set on a nice upright piano! The food is excellent as well so come say hi 🙂

Another big gig I’m excited about is Thursday October 23rd – Smoke N Bones will be opening for the very excellent Nth Power (feat. Nigel Hall of many bands, Nickie Glaspie of Beyonce/Dumstaphunk/etc fame, among others) at the Maison Frenchmen. SnB has some new songs (including one of mine) we’re looking to tighten up because we’re going to go record music for our debut album next month. Nth Power is an amazing band and don’t need me to advertise for them but I will – this band is AMAZING live.

One Love Brass Band is also ironing out some new material in preparation for a follow up to Skatober – we have a big show October 25th at the Mirliton Festival in the Bywater. This is a very cool homegrown festival celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and we’re excited to be opening it up on that Saturday! One Love also just made a cool music video for our version of “Message To Rudy”, which can be viewed on the video page here.

I’m also excited for some amazing shows I’m going to this fall – Outkast at Voodoo Fest, Stevie Wonder Songs In The Key Of Life Tour, Primus in Biloxi, etc. there’s a lot going on this fall!

Hope to see all you beautiful people out and about!
