The music newsletter is getting big because a lot of gigs are becoming listed on here. And there are some groups I didn't list that I will have to make sure are up next time. I'm a little bit busier myself these days, so I have had to cut back to twice a month with the newsletter instead of once a week. Which means I have to list gigs two to three weeks out. Because some of these musicians work several times a week, the resulting newsletter can get quite long. I hope the quicklinks at the top help.
Next propject will be to make a permanent list of links to the websites and myspace sites of all the bands I list so that you can visit them with ease at any time. The list will show up in the right hand column.
First, as usual is the gig I will be on this weekend. I will be playing keyboards with the African Knights, a band that always gets good feedback from our audiences. Roots Reggae al la Africa. If you haven't seen us yet, you should. It's another one of the unique projects I am involved in.
Danny Massure is a new name on the newsletter. Danny specializes in old-school DJ grooves and his shows mix it up with live old-school players. Danny is the kind of DJ that converts people who thought they don't like DJ's. He's a DJ that "gets it" about live music and live musicians. Yes, there are DJs who "get it". You won't see old schoolers like Mike Deasy and Thomas Marriott playing live with DJs very much. But with Danny they find it a joy. Go see why. I'll be there too, so come have a drink with me.
Anyway, here's this week's hot links followed by the full scoop:
