It Don't Mean A Thing If You Ain't Got That Ticket 

One week from today, at 7:30 pm! 

I'm once again returning to the swankiest club anywhere that will still admit YOU as a patron! 

And this time, I'll be paying tribute to the legendary Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington, as well as his protege and songwriting partner, William Thomas "Billy" Strayhorn. 

Two ways to enjoy this show: 

1) Live and in-person! Drive, walk, run, or "take a train," and come see us in person, and enjoy the food, drink, and atmosphere of Keystone Korner Baltimore! It's reserved seating…

Live and on-line with Daryl Davis and a gig in NY! 

A duo show with the legendary Daryl Davis! 

(and a quick jaunt up to New York) 

This Thursday, August 5, at 7 pm! 

Many of you may already be familiar with Daryl Davis. Perhaps you know him as one the best blues and boogie-woogie pianists anywhere. Perhaps you've seen him play live with Chuck Berry or any other of a host of musical luminaries. Or maybe you've heard or read about some of his other activities. 

In any event, he's one of my oldest friends and musical collaborators and we always have a blast…

The things that you're liable to hear from Seth Kibel... 

It's a Gershwin-win situation... 

Live, in-person OR a virtual livestream! 

"It ain't necessarily so. It ain't necessarily so. The things that you're liable to hear from Seth Kibel -- they ain't necessarily so." 

I'm super-excited to present an evening of music consisting entirely of American classics by George and Ira Gershwin! And I'm doing so at one of my favorite live music venues -- Keystone Korner Baltimore! 

It's this Wednesday, July 14. A single show at 7:30 pm!

Watch in your jammies! 

Okay...that might've come out wrong. 

I don't mean to imply that I'll be wearing YOUR jammies. That would be creepy and weird. And I also don't mean that I'll be watching YOU in your jammies. 

No -- what I mean is that I've got another very special live stream performance coming up, and that means means you can freely watch it from home while wearing your jammies. Or your raincoat. Or your giant bunny costume. Really -- it's up to you. 

Friday, June 18 at 7 pm -- Seth Kibel Trio Live Stream!

The Return of Seth Kibel 


"Between a global pandemic and a family health crisis, woodwind wizard Seth Kibel has largely been in hiding as of late. In fact, he has not performed anywhere, either virtually or in-person, since the summer of 2020. So that begs the question -- how are his chops? Has he even touched his instruments in the last six months? Has he spent the last year woodshedding with his horns or has he binged watched EVERY show on Netflix, Hulu, AND Disney+? 

The only way to find out is to check out…
