I've got two fun swing dances coming up this weekend. Different locations, different bands, and different music -- so hopefully I'll see you at one or the other. First, on Friday, June 12, my award-winning jump blues outfit, The Natty Beaux, will once again be playing for a dance at The Washington Dulles Hilton, in Herndon, Virginia. The dance runs from 9 pm until midnight, with a free lesson at 8:30 pm. Admission is $15. Click here for more information. Here's a sneak preview on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozwP1fUcQo4 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Then, on Saturday, June 13, I'll be leading a quartet for a very special swing dance at The Dickeyville Mill in Baltimore, from 9 pm to midnight. With me for this engagement will be pianist Sean Lane, bassist Bob Abbott, and drummer Mark Carson. Together, we'll be celebrating the recent centennial of the King of Swing, Benny Goodman, who would have been 100 years old on May 30. We'll be playing three hours of music associated with this giant of American music, and doing our best to live up to the high standards he set. The Dickeyville Mill is located at 4900 Wetheredsville Road in Baltimore, and a free introductory dance lesson will be taught at 8 pm. Click here for more information. And here's a peek at Mr. Goodman in his prime: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dh93540ymaY

There's a bunch of cool shows coming up in the next week that I wanted to put on your radar.
First off, on Wednesday, May 6, The Alexandria Kleztet will be giving yet another of our famous free shows at The Peabody Institute in Baltimore.  This concert will be from 7 to 9 pm, and is completely free -- no ticket required.
We'll be in Leakin Hall 16, which is one of the larger dance studios.  It's rather hard to find, so I'd recommend just entering Peabody through the main entrance on Mount Vernon Place, and then asking the friendly security officer to direct you.  Peabody is located at 1 East Mount Vernon Place in Baltimore.  For directions, just call 410-659-8100 or click here.

Then, on Friday, May 8, my award-winning jump blues band, The Natty Beaux, will play a hot and sweaty swing dance at The Chevy Chase Ballroom from 9 pm until midnight.
The name notwithstanding, The Chevy Chase Ballroom is located at 5207 Wisconsin Avenue in NW Washington.  The admission is $15, and includes a drop-in beginner lesson from 8:30 to 9 pm.  For directions, or more information, just click here.

Finally, on Sunday, May 10, it's Momma's Day!  And what better way to kick-off this special day than with some hot coffee, unique shopping, and free klezmer music?
As such, we'll be playing a free show at DC's historic Eastern Market from 10:30 am until 12:30 pm.  We'll be on the corner of 7th Street and North Carolina Avenue, SE, just outside of Port City Java (which is where I'll be when we're not playing).
Eastern Market is a really fun, festive place, with lots of opportunities to support the local DC economy while buying lots of pretty things for Mom and treating her to a lovely morning.

See ya!

Just a real quick note to let you know that I'm gonna be giving a special klezmer concert in Metairie, Louisiana, just outside of New Orleans, this coming Monday evening, April 27. 
It'll be at 7:30 pm at Shir Chadash Conservative Congregation.  It's free, and it's open to the public.  For more information, just click here, or call the temple at 504-889-1144.
It's JazzFest time in New Orleans, so I'm delighted to be adding to the cornucopia of fine music that can be heard down in the delta over the next two weeks.
Accompanying me for this performance will be the fine pianist, and fellow New Yorker-in-exile, Sean Lane.
If you're down in that neck of the woods, please stop on by, and if you know anyone who lives down that way, please feel free to let 'em know!

Hey folks! So this is my brand-new website! It's clearly a work-in-progress, so please check it out, and let me know if you have any comments, complaints, criticisms, or concerns. Thanks!
