    I'm excited to be playing another solo set at the Vagabond Cafe (now called Tokyo Tapas) this Thursday! I'm going to try out some new songs, and I may sneak in a couple of covers. Speaking of covers, there is no cover charge, just a tips bucket. So please come out and support me! I'd love to see you there. Also, the Japanese menu at TT is fantastic, and there are other musicians playing after and before me! I recommend coming in early for dinner, and staying for the music.

    We are playing The Parkside Lounge again on Friday night! This will be our first full-band show in a couple of months, and we'd love to see you there. We've undergone some changes since the last show. We've regrettably, but graciously bid adieu to our sax player, Henry. We are sorry to see him go, and we wish him all the best. We are a four piece now - just guitars, bass and drums, so we'll be bringing some new arrangements, and A NEW SONG!. This is not a show to miss! The lineup is as follows: 7- COMEDY SCHOMEDY W/ HOST PATRICK McKECHNEY, 9- EMERSON YOUNG, 10- JIGGLEY JONES, and 11- DNK Age Limit: 21+ Tickets: 2 DRINK MIN. NO COVER! The venue will be passing the hat! FOR BOOKING CONTACT STEVE AT PARKSIDEBOOKING@GMAIL.COM

    I'm playing a solo show at the Vagabond Cafe. I love playing solo shows, because I get to try out new things. I'll be bringing some new songs and maybe a cover or two! The Vagabond has a whole new menu of Japanese cuisine, so a late dinner may be in order.
