**Sunday, July 13th: I WILL NOT be at Casa Mezcal, though the great pianist Dalton Ridenhour will be playing.

Tuesday, July 15th: Quartet at Tenpenny, a classy restaurant in midtown where I’m starting a weekly gig. (We will play Tuesdays in July and August and if all goes well move it to Wednesdays in the Fall). 16 46th Street, between Madison and Fifth Avenue. 7-10pm
Monday, July 21st: A Kornucopia at Barbes. 7-9pm
WEEKLY GIGS (always on, except when noted)
Mondays: Brain Cloud at Barbes, 9th Street & 6th Avenue in Brooklyn (Park Slope), 7-9pm; Barbes is a wonderful, intimate listening room venue that has a wide spectrum of live music from both traditional an experimental slants around the world. There is a little room to dance as well. The Brain Cloud is a six-piece band with Dennis Lichtman playing mandolin, fiddle, and clarinet, and leading the band; Raphael McGregor on lap steel guitar; Skip Krevins on hollow-body electric guitar; Kevin Dorn on snare drum; Andrew Hall on upright bass; and myself singing.
[*note: I'm leading a group- A Kornucopia- on Monday, July 21st and July 28th.]
Sundays: Trio at La Casa Mezcal, 80 Orchard Street on the Lower East Side. We play on the second floor above the main restaurant, and they serve brunch up there. It is the most comfortable room I can imagine, next to someone’s living room. We play as a trio with piano from 2-5pm
[*note: Not at Mezcal on July 13th. Dalton Ridenhour will be playing piano].
