Archtop Brownie at the University of Chicago

    Archtop Brownie is back by popular demand. Although our usual horn player Mike Levin is not able to make this gig we have a wonderful substitute in the great Kevin Kizer on Tenor Sax and other horns. The food and drink are great and parking is no problem at all. This is a band that has a good time. Come on out. The time of day is perfect. You'll be home before 10:00

    I will be opening as a single for Kurt Michaels Continuum featuring Alain Quinn and will be sitting in on a few songs during their set as well. Always best to make a reservation.

    Great little Sandwich Shop turned listening room. I will be playing songs that couldn't have been written by a man younger than myself.

Q: Lance, I'd like to play Buzzards in Love up here in Minneapolis.....How can I get the chords? janetskidmore56@gmail.com

A: If I send you an .mp3 of the song would you be able to extract the chords from it? I would prefer that to working up a chart.
