Here are some fun gigs I'll be doing in August:
On Thursday, August 20th I'll be at the Whiskey Lounge in Evanston with my trio featuring Joe Policastro on bass and Mikel Avery on drums. This group plays every Monday at Pops For Champagne and it will be really rewarding to showcase our trio arrangements for the Whiskey's great listening audience. Plus, we get a professional video recording out of it! My last gig there was my CD release for my solo guitar CD back in March. I edited an hour video of the performance and posted it on YouTube a few months ago. So far its gotten 94,000 views!!
Don't miss this rare trio concert!
My quartet will be playing a weekend at Andy's Jazz Club on Friday/Saturday August 28th/29th. We'll be doing the early show from 5pm-8:30pm. I'll have Joe Policastro on bass, Phil Gratteau on drums, and two great pianists (Friday 8/28 - Dennis Luxion and Saturday 8/29 - Jeremy Kahn).
For you traditional jazz fans, I'll be doing three gigs this month with Petra's Recession Seven. We'll be at Fitzgerald's with the regular band on Thursday, August 6th. For the weekend of 8/15 - 8/16, we'll have original member clarinetist Kim Cusack back from California. On Saturday, August 15 we'll be at the San Fillippo Estate in Barrington and on Sunday, August 16th we'll be doing a concert for the Illiana Club Of Traditional Jazz.
