OK…today felt like the first real day of summer to me. I took some time off this afternoon and went for a bike ride with Zach Joy up to Rollinsford and then, when he headed back towards Dover, I took the long way home. What an incredible day. Nice breeze, a little hazy. The ocean was stunning down on River Road. I felt bad for all those people screaming along the Spaulding Turnpike over the Dover Point bridge, tearing past the incredible beauty of Great Bay…hopefully they were all headed somewhere idyllic!
Anyway…I won’t make you wade through my ramblings any longer. Here’s some great stuff I have the good fortune of being involved with in the next couple of weeks. Friday, June 22nd at the Lotus Moon World Fusion Belly Dance Studio, Tim Webb and Avant Coast present “Out of Bounds” with Richard Gardzina, Rob Duquette, Luther Gray, Thom Keith, Tim Webb and myself. Should be a great show, c’mon out and support live music. Monday, June 25th, The Tim O’Dell/ Matt Langley Quartet is back at the Press Room. I’m looking forward to making some sounds with O’Dell and the boyz. Tim writes some wonderful music and Jim Lyden and Luther Gray bring it to life effortlessly. Friday, June 29th I’m back up at the Dogfish Grill in Portland Maine with good friend Jan Van Voorst Van Beest. With any luck, the inimitable Curtis Clark and Jim Lyden will be in the house as well. Saturday, June 30th….get the kids, take a picture…the COMBO SABROSO is back at the Press Room in Portsmouth. This could be the only hang of the summer with Alex Alvear, Ernesto Diaz, Manolo Marena, Scott Flynn and Matt Jenson so mark the calendar and plan for a steamy evening of latin dance music.Taking a peek into July…Monday, July 2nd I’m back at the Press Room with one of my new favorite piano players/improvisers/ muscians/north berwick maine residents…Mike Effenberger. Nate Edgar and Tom Arey will be in the house for a rockin’ good time…more latahhhh….get out and hear some music, breathe some air and enjoy life!
