Joyful Nocturnal Noise

Sometimes a three-setter at the end of the work week feels like it goes on forever. Sometimes the night is so magical, the band so hot, the crowd so into things that you WISH it could go on forever. Friday at Nocturnem Draft Haus in Bangor was the latter- and how. AJP trumpet guy Mark was the "November Featured Artist" for First Friday Jazz, and he was joined by house band "The G-Majors"- with AJP's own Bobby D. on skins. A highlight (and proof of what type of night it was) was opening set two with two cats who walked in off the street- one from Sweden, via Berklee College of Music! Needless to say our Swedish-speaking horn guy (and Berklee) alum had himself a time- and Berklee did itself proud, with 3/5 of the band on stage to start set II Berklee alums. All in all a great warm-up for when the full AJP hit Nocturnem on 29 Dec. Gotta be there, brothers and sisters!

A Brave New World (or something)

Well, here we go- ReverbNation! Something tells me this is the key to breaking AJP out of Bangor, ME, and into the places we need to be. Vi ska se!!
