4 Big Shows with Bleu and Tracy Bonham!

5 Comments 22 February 2011

MARCH 1 – 4, 2011

Some Words About The Shows In General:
You can put the names in whatever order you’d like, it still comes out sounding as sweet. I am VERY excited about these shows. Bleu, Tracy Bonham and I played The Borderline in London together last year and it was one of my 2010 highlights. A great bill all the way through and we got to sit in a bit on each other’s sets. We decided that night to bring it all back home and these shows are the result. We’ve been busy planning which tunes we’ll be playing together and I know that it’s going to be special.

Some Words About The Philly Show In Particular:
When looking for a place in Philly to bring this show, we decided to take it to World Cafe Live, with it’s great stage and sound and amazing atmosphere. The ticket price on this show is actually LESS than you’d pay for one of my Philly area solo shows, Bleu and Tracy are both incredible in their own right and the collaboration between the three of us is a treat that may not be repeated here. All of this in the upscale confines of WCL add up to the fact that YOU REALLY SHOULD NOT MISS THIS SHOW. Seriously.

I spent a day recently in the studio to record my ukulele version of ‘Thunder Road’ and I’m happy to say that both WXPN and WBJB have been kind enough to play it. This is not for sale, not on the web, it’s a radio-only release. I hope you’ll continue to call and request it and also to let them know you like it when you hear them play it.

This is a bit of an experiment. I’m trying to see if there’s interest in these types of things both from my fans and from the radio stations that I have long-term relationships with. I think the recording turned out really well. I hope you guys like it. Here’s the request line info:

WXPN 215-573-WXPN or requests@xpn.org
WBJB: 732.224.2905

Of course, both stations have live streams on their websites, so you can listen (and request) even if you’re not in the Philly (XPN) or NJ (WBJB – The Night) areas.

    I had a great time at the World Cafe Live show. I think everyone enjoyed your Springsteen workout on the uke.

    Cheers, Michael

    Saw the show at Jammin Java on 3/3. AWESOME! It was great to see the four of you having so much fun. I couldn’t believe you played God Only Knows–my all-time favorite love song.

    We saw you with the Fab Faux here in DC last year. Really enjoyed it better with you than the year before. Then went and got all your CDs. Fantastic that you had Emmitt Rhodes and Big Al play. I love the NRBQ song.

    The Faux are coming next month. I hope you’re coming with them.

    Thanks again for a great night. You’re a great performer and writer.

    Thanks for coming back to LA. My husband and i have been fans since we lived in philly in the 1990s. We just saw you play with fab faux at the orpheum. I didnt realize you could play every instrument ever invented…and make it look easy. Those guys are lucky to have you. But between you and me, I would have rather seen you solo. Imagine my dismay when I heard we missed you at genghis Cohen just three nights before. Ugh! It felt like I got punched in the stomach, it was that visceral and dramatic! I have since recovered, but hope you’ll be back before another two years goes by.

    Found you on youtube. Serendipity. I live in Naples, FL. Any chance you will be in Florida soon? I am going to try to make the Philly show in March.
    Good stuff!!!

    Hi Don,

    Thanks for the kind words. Ah, it’s been a while since I’ve gottwn to FL. Love to do it, it’s just difficult, routing-wise.

    Hey – I just want to make sure you know that these shows with Tracy and Bleu were LAST March (2010). Wouldn’t want you making a trip up and then finding out there wasn’t a show, though there’s almost certain to be SOME Philly-area show next March.
