I'm so excited!

On Friday April 10th, I'll be making my debut at one of San Luis Obispo's nicest venues, the Steynberg Gallery.  Ok, not quite a debut, I played 1 song there back in the fall as part of one Steve Key's great shows, but this is the first time I'll be bringing my own band.  And what a band it will be.  The wonderful Karl Welz on saxophone. The Sweetheart of California herself, Miss Katie Cavera on bass.  And my very special guest, LA based guitarist/banjoist/whistler/entertainer John Reynolds

This will be John's ***San Luis Obispo*** debut but he's not entirely a stranger to the Central Coast.  You might have heard him on my most recent CD, Let's Get Lost.   I've had the pleasure of working with him off and on for the last 10 or so years.   He's often part of my group when I perform at Hearst Castle, his mix of 1920's & 1930's songs are perfect for the setting.   His bands The Reynolds Brothers/The Ellis Island Boys are mainstays on the traditional jazz festival circuit and frequent performers at the annual Pismo Beach Jazz Jubilee and Monterey Jazz Bash By the Bay.

Or you may have caught him back at the Live Oak Music Festival back in 2008, where his infectious performance woke everyone up Saturday morning and festival goers found themselves hurrying from their campsites to the main stage.



These days John can be spotted performing most weekends at California Adventure, so it's a rare treat to get him up our way.  Don't miss your opportunity to catch him, the last time I was able to bring him to town for a public show was back in 2010, and I don't know when it will happen again.  So get your tickets and spread the word!

The show starts at 7:30pm.  Tickets are $15.  The Steynberg Gallery is a wonderful intimate venue, so I recommend calling and getting your reservations early.  Food and beverages of both the coffee shop and adult variety will be available for purchase.

Take a walk "On the Sunnyside of the Street" with jazz vocalist Dawn Lambeth as she delights you with her effervescent renditions of songs from the Swing Era, evoking the bathtub gin of Boardwalk Empire as well as the top hats and tails of the Great Gatsby.  You'll think you've traveled back in time to an old fashioned supper club as you journey from hot swing tunes of the 1920's to romantic ballads of the Big Band Era.

"Her voice is special – a beautiful instrument, lending itself easily to elation or the bittersweet feelings so often found in the songs of the great period – and she brings deep feeling to her music, without ever emoting or overacting. She doesn’t imitate anyone, but the memorable singers we all know resonate through her own singular approach, gentle and unaffected."
