Jazz / Experimental / Open-Minded
to those who made it out to our October debut at ModernFormations. The show
was a blast and reaffirmed our will to continue flaunting our true jazz colors.
In the meantime, we've booked two final 2012 gigs, learned and wrote a few new tunes,
and oh heck, Jeff is a doctor now. So come on down tomorrow at Thunderbird to hear us after pittsburgh friends Faithful Sinners and Akron OH's Dave Hammer Power Supply. We're playing
last ~ 11:15p, $5 @ door.
Next Saturday (12/8) we'll be playing a 2 hour show @ 720 Clothing Music Cafe in Lawrenceville to round out the year. Opening at 9pm will
be good friends Velvet Heat, "Pittsburgh's hottest jazz trio" comprised
of 3 lovely ladies with whom dave, skelly and i play in the 6-piece pop funk band,
Steel Town Soul. We're excited to play at this new and upcoming
venue (coffee, fashion, eclectic books/gifts, tight vinyl record collection).
$5 suggested donation. PS: this show promises to be a lovely chaser for a
certain anesthesia dept holiday party the same evening.
thanks for listening and we wish you a fun holiday season and a happy new year.
us. we'll even count it as your hanukkah and kwanzaa presents too)
