TALL MEN and ME in SANTA CLARITA THIS FRIDAY
HOUSE CONCERT THIS SATURDAY
Hey everyone, I just spent a few days at MB Gordy’s cool studio in Tarzana, with Steve Deutsch on bass, and MB on drums, recording tracks for a new CD (actually, I have enough tunes for TWO CDs!). I’m looking forward to getting the new songs out there, and working with some of my world-class musician friends. Stay tuned for more details!
Now here’s what’s happening this weekend:
First, on Friday night, Aug. 14th, I’m playing the SUMMERFEST FESTIVAL at Rivendale Park in Newhall. I’m appearing with the Tall Men Group; a band made up of some of the superstars of Los Angeles singer/songwriters, including Severin Browne, Ed Tree, Marty Axelrod, Jimmy Yessian, John Stowers and Jeff Kossack. I’ll also be sharing the bill with Northern CA’s Michael McNevin, whose pickin’ will definitely keep you grinnin’. Hosting the event are the Locke Brothers, who have been fixtures on the scene for decades. I’m grateful they brought me in with such illustrious company. 6pm to 10pm at Rivendale Park & Open Space 22425 The Old Road, Newhall CA 91321 (661) 799-3378
Then, the following night, Aug. 15th, at 7pm, I’m doing a House Concert with my great and talented friend Amy Engelhardt. We’ve done many shows together, and her sophisticated, quirky songs mix wonderfully with mine. We also sing on each other’s tunes, and we’ll be playing our two songs that share the same title. The house is in Chatsworth, and if you RSVP to email@example.com, Marc Zev will send you the address and details. Either $20 donation for the show, or pay $25 and you’ll get a CD from both of us!
And coming up Sunday Aug. 23rd, I’ll be playing at 6pm at Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena, on the Side Stage, opening for the great Gonzalo Bergara. The Pavilion is in Memorial Park, 85 East Holly, Pasadena, CA, 91103
I just want to put in a quick plug for Dan Navarro, my dear friend, who, besides being a true “hit songwriter,” has always been there with good counsel and sound advice for me, while working tirelessly with SAG/AFTRA to make conditions better for professional singers. He’s doing a house concert at Russ and Julie’s the same night Amy and I are doing ours. Of course, we’d rather you come see us, but if you can’t make Chatsworth, head to Thousand Oaks to see Dan.
