The last couple weeks has been kind of a whirlwind between a bunch of shows, rehearsals, and my grad school audition (which I think went pretty well!), and now I’m currently up in Vermont recording with Cold Chocolate. It’s always a good time being up here, right on Lake Champlain, and having the whole weekend to focus on recording. This is the second session we’re doing for the upcoming full-length album which should be finished later this year.
If you want to catch some of the new tunes live, come check out our show this Wednesday (March 27th) at the Queen’s Head Pub in Harvard Square. We’ll be playing from 8 pm til 10 pm.
On Friday (March 1st), I’ll be playing with Spider Cider for a fundraiser at Zumix in East Boston. The show is part of their Friday Freestyle Fridays program, which happens every Friday from 6-9 pm. There’s a great lineup featuring a lot of youth from both Boston and New York City. It’s the first Spider Cider show that we’ve played in a while, so that’s exciting, too. Pete (our trombone player) unfortunately can’t make it, so in order to fill in for him, we’ve enlisted a three-piece horn section. It’ll be a good time, though we’re also working on putting together some shows with the full band in the near future, so stay tuned for that as well.
Finally, this upcoming week I’ll also be playing on Saturday (March 2nd) with Ezekiel’s Wheels as part of this year’s Boston Jewish Music Festival. We’ll be playing at the Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly in Brighton, MA at 6:30 pm. It’ll be a good warm up for our recording session the following Sunday, which will be also our second session for an upcoming full-length album.
