I hope you’re staying cool this incredibly hot Summer. I’ve spent most of the last two months convincing my hands that they knew how to play keyboards so I could do some dates with the Fab Faux performing all of Let It Be and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. There were some incredibly frustrating moments while sitting at the piano several hours a day, but it felt great to push myself and wind up pulling it off.
Now I’m reminding my hands how MY songs go. Got some places and dates where I’ll be pulling that off. Check it . . .
Wow, it’s like I made a conscious decision to not play shows in Philly or something. I haven’t been to Steel City since last October! Well, let’s fix that immediately. I’ll be back on Saturday, 8.14.10 at 8:30p. A mystery guest will open. I’m trying to save you a seat, but tickets are going fast, so you may want to order today.
Saturday, 8.14.10 - 8:30p
Steel City Coffeehouse
203 Bridge Street - Phoenixville, PA
All Ages. $16 Adv. / $18 DoS.
That’s really all I can say right now. More details to come, but you just might want to keep that box on your calendar open.
HEY HEY, UK
I’MA COMIN’ YER WAY . . .
. . . It’s better to book gigs, if you like to play.
Hey, hey UK.
You can stop reading this in a Neil Young voice now.
Yes, it’s time for what is becoming my annual trip to the UK. I’m headed out October 13th and coming back to the States on November 7th. I’m in the process of getting all the dates together, but I’m also wondering if there’s any folks in Blighty that would like to have me entertain in their very own home.
House concerts have become a pretty big thing here in the States and I know they’re starting to catch on over there. Wanna be a trendsetter? Here are some details on how it all works. You can reply to this email or contact Jack Leitenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested or have questions.
In any event, more details on the UK tour soon. As always, I am really excited to come over and play.
