Gig: Salt Creek Grille (Princeton)

I first worked with Rosemary Benson (vocals) and Ward Marston (piano) at the Salt Creek Grille near Princeton back in September. It was a fun night all around, and they have asked us back this Saturday, November 26.

We’ll be playing danceable selections from the Great American Songbook. There’s no real dance floor, but a few people tried to dance anyway last time, and there’s a whole mess of comfy chairs near the bandstand for listening. We play from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m.


Comfy chairs? Hmmm....

Gig: Le Cochon Noir

I’ve been rehearsing with a new band (“Sambagrilo”) for a few months, and we had our first gig at Le Cochon Noir a couple weeks ago. That night went very well, so we are back there this Friday, November 18th. We play classic Brazilian sambas and bossa novas, sung in Portuguese; it’s some of my favorite music in the world.

Le Cochon Noir serves upscale barbecue and more (I can vouch for the food—it’s excellent). 5070 Parkside Avenue, Suite 5100E, Philadelphia. We hit at 8:00 p.m.


When will this band play again?

We have nothing on the schedule at the moment, but soon, I hope. We had roughly twice as many folks come out for this second show; it was a good night.

THIS JUST IN... Sambagrilo has just been booked for a return performance at Le Cochon Noir on Friday, January 13thth, 2012 at 8p. Don't miss it!!!

Hey, whose blog is this, anyway? :-) It's true, we're back and we're glad.
