First, I want to say thank you to everyone who enjoyed “The End Times Cabaret: The Great Crash” and the fabulously fun Juke Joint Revues at The Parkside Lounge this September. Thank you, I hope you had as good a time as I did! Francesca Hoffman and I are teaming up for another show–this time in Brooklyn!
It seems wind has changed direction and Mary Poppins is off to the outer regions again, kids. Fear not!–we can get together over some cozy RockRollNSoul and groove into the end of Fall like a leaf on the air. There is so much new music coming up from me and the band, a delicious bbq gig with my band Empire Beats at Hill Country BBQ Market and a Halloween Show to knock your costumes off for Theater for the New City’s 33rd Annual Halloween party!
