  • CMA Writers Series at Joe’s Pub

    Last night was our 10th show in the CMA Songwriters Series at Joe’s Pub. It won’t be our last. 🙂 Last night’s show was awesome, among the best we’ve seen. There were only four performers last night (which has happened before, typically there are five), but there were five people on stage (I’ll […]

  • Earl Klugh and Bob James at Blue Note

    Earl Klugh is my favorite solo jazz guitarist, and has been for 30 years! Bob James is my favorite solo jazz pianist, and has been, for nearly as long! I’ve seen each of them perform (separately) at the Blue Note, but last night, finally got to see them play together, for the 30th […]

  • Jeffrey Steele at Joe’s Pub

    Last night we saw Jeffrey Steele (and band) at Joe’s Pub. If you’re used to Twitter, and only have patience to read one paragraph, then let me describe his show in one word: Wow! We’ve had it on our list to catch a Jeffrey Steele show for a while now (if you read […]

  • Another theSetNYC Show

    Three weeks ago, we attended our first theSet NYC show, documented here. While the show was a little choppy, we really liked the place, Le Poisson Rouge (specifically, the Gallery Bar). We think the people behind theSet are wonderful, and we believe in their vision for showcasing upcoming talent. So, when I saw […]

  • Everything’s Easy by Girlyman

    Who doesn’t know that Girlyman is our favorite group yet? Come on, raise your hand. With the production of their new CD, Everything’s Easy, Girlyman tried something different: asking their fans to help them buy a top-notch microphone for their vocals. We joined many other Girlyfans and pitched in to get them that […]

  • Wonderful Weekend

    We’re in NYC for an unusually long stretch. We’re at the halfway point, and it will be hard to top last week, but we won’t stop trying. 🙂 We returned from VA on Tuesday to one night of solitude. Our extravaganza started on Wednesday. Since we had been away, I got back on […]

  • Dave Mason at Tarrytown Music Hall

    Last night was our eighth concert at Tarrytown Music Hall, and our third Dave Mason show (first one at the Hall). I covered the previous shows extensively here and here. To summarize the things that were the same: Dave Mason is beyond awesome. His voice is still amazing, and his fingers move across […]

  • Yonder Mountain String Band at Tarrytown Music Hall

    We live near Tarrytown Music Hall and we’ve been to six shows there since we discovered it (we were very late to the party). We are on the mailing list, so we get notifications of upcoming shows. A couple of months ago I noticed that Yonder Mountain String Band (YMSB) would be playing […]

  • I Made Lemonade from Ceili Rain

    I’ve written about our love of Ceili Rain before, most recently after we saw them perform at Joyful Noise III. At the time, their new CD, I Made Lemonade was not yet available for purchase, but as of July 1, happily, that’s no longer the case! In the above link, the new CD […]

  • theSet NYC at Le Poisson Rouge

    A month ago, I posted about a wonderful weekend that included catching Altar Boyz at New World Stages. As a result (I assume) I received an email from Pim, a member of the team that founded theSet NYC. theSet NYC is a great idea. Collect a group of talented performers and promote a […]
