Lots of upcoming performances with both bands!
The Pretty Boys have ridiculously fun sets planned for Halloween at Cirque of the Dead, and the lineup out in Lowell for Cosmic Bop is going to be non-stop if you can make it out – Riverhawk Party Band put on a very tight show at Honk this year!Originally published at David's blog.
Friend, bandmate, and violinist extraordinaire Ripley is in the throes of creating an electroswing “immersive theater, dance, burlesque and circus spectacle” called The Penny Jive, and had their workshop performance earlier this week. Check out some photos below, and support their kickstarter campaign if you can.published at David's blog.
There’s a handful of shows coming up before I start my Masters program at The Boston Conservatory this summer, and they all promise to be excellent!
… and then I start in on a Masters of Music in Music Education degree! Whee!Originally published at David's blog.
SchoolTree released their new album, Rise, at the Lizard Lounge (on the Ides of March!) with support from Count Zero and a small troupe of variety & burlesque acts. An exquisite night! Just a few lazy snapshots from my seat, I was mostly just enjoying the show:
Now go buy the album!Originally published at David's blog.
On February 28th, Brendan Burns is once again bringing together a collective of incredibly talented musicians and performers at the Somerville Theatre to bring Beck’s upcoming Song Reader “album” (which is only being released in sheet music form) to life.
Our version of ‘Old Shanghai’ was arranged by Brendan, with:
Vocals – Mary Bichner
Guitar – Brendan Burns
Bass – Tony Leva
Trumpet – (yours truly)
Tenor Sax – Brendan Higgins
Trombone – Randy Pingrey
Baritone Sax – Kathy Olson
Many friends and fellow musicians lived in Columbia House, which suffered a devastating fire last week. There are two benefits coming up which I’ll be performing in – the one above is on the 9th at Precinct in Union Square, and I’ll be getting all horn-y with Johnny Blazes and the Pretty Boys.
The week after on Thursday (the 13th of September) I’ll be playing with Brendan himself at the Middle East Downstairs. Please come out to both shows if you can, they promise to be wonderful!Originally published at David's blog.
