TWO GREAT CONCERTS THIS MONTH! (Even greater if you are there)


(Even greater if you are there)


A few years ago, I found out there was a great house concert series in my ‘hood, Seth and Tony’s House Concerts “All Folked Up.” (The name alone was enough for me to want to perform there). They were pretty booked up, but they had enjoyed seeing me perform at a few places (including McCabe’s with the great Christine Lavin), so we looked to find an open date for me to appear there. Well, that date is coming right up:

Saturday, July 16th at Seth and Tony’s. There is a gourmet pre-show dinner that starts at 6:30, and the concert starts at 8pm. It’s only $30 for the dinner AND show (the food alone is worth that!).


It’s a lovely house up in the Highland Park hills, with a stunning view overlooking Eagle Rock and Glendale (and it’s literally a mile from my house). I’ll be appearing with my brilliant musician pals, Grant Geissman and Steve Deutsch.

AAAANNND… on Saturday, July 30th, at 7pm I’m doing a concert with Kiki Ebsen! OK, yes, she IS the daughter of Buddy Ebsen. Along with many years of touring  as a keyboardist with everyone from Christopher Cross and Al Jarreau, to Michael McDonald and Tracy Chapman, she has also been recording acclaimed albums, and performing her own music in her solo shows, as well as a popular tribute show to her late father. No surprise that, as the daughter of a beloved entertainer, she did not fall far from the tree.
Also sharing the bill with us is the great Grant Geissman. Besides being one of the greatest guitar players on the planet (having played the iconic solo in Chuck Mangione’s “Feels So Good”), he was also the composer for the hit series“Two-and-a-Half Men” with the infamous Charlie Sheen.
The concert is at Kiki’s Healing Equine Ranch in the gorgeous Santa Monica mountains. Besides being a working ranch, HER is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to educate, empower and enlighten people through natural interaction with horses. They teach natural horsemanship principles with an emphasis on human growth and awareness to promote healing.

If you’d like to come a little earlier, at 5:30 Kiki will do a short equestrian demo of what she does at the ranch, and you’ll see the horses being fed and feast on the pastoral beauty of the scene.

Bring some wine and snacks. We’ll have some there for you as well.
