Happy New Year 2016

Posted on January 6, 2016 at 1:40 AM

I have no idea what would be happning in 2016...

I have 2 recordings coming up, one with Marilyn Rucker in this month, another one with Sarah Sharp / Yaniel Matos in February, and G.G. first ever tour in March right here in Austin, besides regular everyday live gigs.

Additionally Hey Lolly 1st Sunday brunch residency at Cherrywood Coffee house just started last Sunday, 35mm 3rd Thursday residency at Firehouse lounge starts in January, Jitterbug Vipers will be on the Slim Festival in Terlingua TX in February, and Sarah Sharp band will make your Valentine's night awesome at Townsend.

Kinda a lot in slow winter time for musicians!! 

I hope I can go back to Japan for G.G. tour in later this year.

I m waiting my spinet piano tuned up for possible Jazz at Noon returning....

Stay Tuned!!

Elephant Room is temporary closed!!

Posted on November 15, 2015 at 9:00 PM

This is a bad news.

I heard Elephant Room has been closed since last Friday for maintenancing building, suspicious about sink hale under neath, having flood...... Those are all not reliable information, but something wrong about that neigborhood underground, they shouold close business till they find out what is wrong and fix it. 

So, I have Jitterbug Vipers gigs on 11/16, 18, 23, and Rich Harney gig on 11/22, those might not happening, please check out Elephant Room FB page for update about open business day/time here https://www.facebook.com/Elephant-Room-288488406823/?fref=ts" target="_blank">http://https://www.facebook.com/Elephant-Room-288488406823/?fref=ts 

I hope it will open asap!!!!!!!!!!!

Sarah Sharp Project at Townsend was fabulous!

Posted on November 6, 2015 at 10:20 AM

WOW! It was another beautiful night at Townsend, my new favorite listening room just across the Paramount Theatre downtown Austin!! 

This venue was a sushi bar, now they made it very upgraded full bar. Listening room is after this front bar, behind double doors, very quiet accoustic space. We will be back here on Valentine's day with Dinner setting. very romantic I guess!

Enjoy some video from Wednesday
