The lovely Robin Aigner has invited Bob van Pelt, Clint, and I to do a number or two at her Elvis Costelo tribute show on Saturday, January 23rd at Freddy's. Bob will be playing approximately 40 songs with numerous people.
Hello 2016. I am happy to report that Clint Newman is coming for a visit from Louisville in a few weeks and to celebrate, he, Bob, and I are playing a show at Rock Shop on Friday, January 22nd along with Plus/Minus and Great Lakes. We're on at 8 pm. Boy would we love to see you.
Clint is moving with his wife Jessi to Louisvile on Monday. This makes collaboration a little more tricky, but with the record inthe final mixing/ mastering stage with the incomparable Ray Ketchem, we are bound together. This pleases me immensely. Clint, safe travels, and know how much you'll be missed here in Brooklyn. Here's to Louisvile visits, future record making, and years and years of friendship to come. We love you.
Clint Newman is insanely talented and patient, and I hope I tell him and Bob Van Pelt often enough how very grateful I am to be making this record with them. A Touch of Class is almost there, and we'll get it out to ya later this year. That's a promise.
