New Haven Article
OK, sometimes you have shows that are EPIC.....well, the show I recently had in New Haven on 11/16/14 was one of them.
I couldn't have imagined the show to have gone better. I truly felt blessed and I know this sounds corny, but loved! Yes, I said it, Loved! I grew up in CT and have not had the opportunity till now to perform for my friends and family. The venue was packed with my childhood friends and family! I couldn't believe all the people who showed up. Most faces I recognized right away, but there were a few that made me take a step back to remember... I found it interesting how nervous I was just before I hit the stage. it's a whole different ball game when you are performing to people who know you (but know you not as a performer), as opposed to strangers or fans you've made along the road. I think I have a bunch of new fans on the East Coast now! yeah!
I can't wait to do it again. We had such a great time and I can't Thank Mark Zaretsky, of the New Haven Register (and the Cobalt Rhythm Kings) for getting me on the Cover of the Entertainment section of the New Haven register. Great write-up!
The band kicked serious ass!
The band consisted of the amazing Andy Aledort on guitar and vocals, Dennis Metzler on bass, Shawn Murray on drums, Will Hitchcock on Keys, Jim Pino Jr on Sax and harmonica and me! It felt as though we picked up where we left off when we all hit the stage and started playing. Even though we never performed together before....Well, sort of. I did play one song with Andy about 5 years ago when I opened for Dickey Betts in California. Andy was and still is performing with Dickey Betts and Great Southern. What a great performer. Again, it was a truly memorable night and I can't wait to go back!
See you again soon East Coast!
