Gigs in DC, Greenbelt, NC, Florida, and Berlin

Gigs in DC, Greenbelt, NC, Florida, and Berlin?


Okay...that's MOSTLY true.  I AM doing public shows in MOST of those places this month.  But not Berlin.  But I am playing a "Salute to Irving Berlin" show in DC, so that counts, right?


("First we take Manhattan, then we play Berlin...")


Here's the skinny:


Sunday, November 6 -- "Seth Kibel & Friends: Salute to Irving Berlin"

Edlavitch DC Jewish Community Center

1529 16th Street, Washington, DC  20036

5 to 7 pm, $19, $17 seniors/students


"Let woodwind wizard Seth Kibel and his musical colleagues take you on a whirlwind journey through the vast Irving Berlin songbook. Israel Beilin was born in Russia at the end of the 19th century, but he produced a body of work that would practically come to define American music in the 20th century. Seth, along with award-winning chanteuse Flo Anito, will perform such well-loved classics as Blue Skies, Always, Cheek to Cheek, How Deep Is The Ocean, and many more, all with a distinct jazz and swing sensibility. Historical commentary and humorous anecdotes from “history nerd” Kibel will make this evening almost as educational as it will be entertaining."


I STRONGLY encourage you to buy your tickets in advance by clicking this nifty link.


I guarantee that you'll hear lots of classic Irving Berlins compositions, all presented with swing and zest.  Lots of familiar tunes and probably some new-to-you ones, as well.  But we'll probably skip "White Christmas" and "Easter Parade."



See that poster up just above this line?  The New Deal Cafe, in Greenbelt, Maryland, is always a fun hang!  No cover, but excessively generous tipping is encouraged!


Anyway, I'll be there (along with Flo, Sean, and Bob) next Wednesday, November 9, from 7 to 9 pm.  If you're in that neck of the woods, stop by!


....and as my subject line indicated, I've got a slew more performances this month!  A free Veteran's Day show (klezmer and Django jazz) in Silver Spring on Thursday, November 10!  Public shows in Wilmington, North Carolina as well as Boca Raton and Port Charlotte, Florida!  If you've got family or friends in any of these locations, please send 'em my way!  I can even collect outstanding debts for you, if you like.


Get info on all of these concerts, and more, on my website!
