Snug.ThumbApril 8, 2017:

Since 2008, I’ve always done a night at Snug Harbor during French Quarter Festival weekend. This year, Clarinet Road takes the Saturday, which I am very excited to acknowledge, is the birthday of my featured drummer, the King of Tremé himself, Shannon Powell.  Also with me is the great pianist Ehud Asherie. This master of stride piano has his own unique take on music by piano masters including Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller, James P. Johnson, and many others. On bass is A-lister, Kerry Lewis.

It’s the usual drill at Snug: Two shows, 8pm & 10pm, reservations online here or by calling the club during business hours. (504) 949-0696

4.07 Uptown Soirée w/ Ehud Asherie

Friday, April 7, 2017 (7pm-9:30pm)

Uptown Salon

I am honored to have stride-piano virtuoso Ehud Asherie in town for the week of the 2017 French Quarter Festival. Yes, we will be at the FQF on Thursday,and yes, we will be at Snug Harbor on Saturday. However, I happen to know that there are a handful of folks who are unsure if they want to brave those crowds. So… Good news! one of my Uptown friends is hosting  a salon on Friday night, April 7 at 7pm.

Light food and wine will be available between the two sets, but seating is extremely limited (40 seats).

4.04 Speak-Easy, w/Tom McDermott @ the Silky Satin Lounge

Tuesday, April 4, 2017 (7pm-10pm)

A Mid-City “House Concert” at the Silky Satin Lounge

Pianist Tom McDermott and I have had a dynamic partnership for over twenty years. Our love for the traditional musics of New Orleans, Brazil, the Caribbean and beyond have yielded three CDs and praise from the decidedly not-failing New York Times, Rolling Stone and Downbeat. This is a rare chance to catch us together.
As a bit of lagniappe my special guest for the week, Ehud Asherie, performs a mini-set of songs from Eubie Blake’s hit musical, “Shuffle Along.”

$20 suggested donation. BYOB. Light food provided, and shared dishes are welcome. Please do not post on social media.

DONATION AT DOOR. The Silky Satin Lounge is located at 625 Hagan (Bayou St John, one block from Parkway Bakery)
