It has been a while since I updated this thing. I thought I would share a few things going on right now.
May 16 we performed the 8th installement of the Green Street Music Series called “Radio Free Green Street”. This go around was a celebration of U2 and R.E.M. music. Check out www.greenstreetrocks.com for details about this series. The quick version is, we put together a house band, we learn about 50 songs, we invite about 30 singers for local bands to sing some songs with us, we put on a huge show and have a great time. We will be announcing #9 soon and I’ll be sure to mention it up here.
Right now I am in the midst of a series of shows playing drums for The Wheels and also Kelleigh Bannen who are up in Boston from Nashville. In addition to getting to play with Kelleigh, Jabe andSean, Kevin Barry played lap steel with us last night and it was a great joy to hear him play and play with him. My good friend Jeremy Curtis of The Howl and also Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck is on bass. These are the kind of weeks I love, 7 nights of playing great music with great people. It has been a great time playing music with these talented folks. We have shows the rest of this week so if you are in the Boston area please come and check us out. Upcoming shows are on this site, here is a link.
Next week I am thrilled to be doing a few shows with Shana Morrison again. Shana is a fantastic singer who lives in San Francisco and when she comes East to play shows, The Curtain Society, along with Scott Ricciuti from HUCK back her up. We don’t get to play as often as we would like, please come out to the shows May 28-30 in Worcester MA, Providence RI and Webster MA
On June 11th I am proud to be celebrating the 100th installment of the Thursday Dive Bar Music Series. Almost 100 Thursdays ago, Alec at The Dive Bar decided it was time to bring music for the first time into his club. It has been a distinct honor to have played a part in turning The Dive Bar into a place for music. They now have music there 4 nights a week and show no signs of stopping. I have a special band planned for June 11 so please mark your calendar and come down to celebrate.
After the Wheels and Kelleigh Bannen shows and the Shana Morrison shows, The Curtain Society will be hitting the studio to begin writing and recording our new album.
See you in the clubs!
