Sorry I have been remiss in my gig blog. I've been busy moving up the street to a new place in Red Hook and running from one thing to the next.
Anyhoo, here is some live gigs coming up:

July 26 9:30 its Smokey Hormel's Western band at Sunny's (253 Conover St 11231) in Red Hook. This is a warm up gig for our big show at Tonic the next day.
July 27th at 8:00 The big show at Tonic with Smokey's band.
Smokey Hormel's Western Band
After his recent work in LA, playing guitar on The Dixie Chicks: Taking The Long Way and Johnny Cash: American 5, Smokey Hormel returns to Tonic with a Western Swing Band. He will be playing songs from the repertoire of Bob Wills, Milton Brown, Spade Cooley and of course, Mr. Cash. With Bob Hoffnar (electric steel guitar), George Rush (upright bass), Andrew Borger (drums) & Doug Wieselman (clarinet).
I'll be playing my old Fender Stringmaster on this one.

Aug 2nd back to Sunny's (253 Conover St 11231) in Red Hook with Smokey.
Here is a gem from Youtube:
Aug 3rd its Matt Keating 9:45pm. Club Midway - 25 Avenue B between 2nd and 3rd Streets The last show at Joe's pub was a great one.
Aug 4th 8:00 I'm playing Barbes with Queen Esther . She is a great singer. I go to hear her sing even if I'm not in the band. After us is the Moonlighters at 10;00. Besides the great singing and tunes you have Mike Neer playing an old national tricone slide. The guy is a wizard.
Aug 5th 8:00 at Barbes its THE JONATHON HAFFNER QUARTET with Bob Hoffnar pedal steel; Jonathon Haffner - alto; Chris Lightcap - Bass and Dan Weiss - drums. This will be a new music/jazz sort of gig. I'm excited about his one. The players are amazing and we may even rehearse !
Aug 6th 10:00 The Stone With the Jonathon Haffner Quartet again. We may take it a bit more out and add some players for this one. I'll update as the info comes in.
But wait aug 6th is a sunday ! What the heck is going on here ? I'll be at Hank's for one of the gigs depending on when I can make it.
