Saturday, March 15, we will be celebrating its release in our annual concert at Boulevard Music in Culver City. What's special about this one is that it will feature material from our new release, "Take Your Time", and will be joined for several tunes by drummer Albert Trepagnier, Jr. who played such a key role on these recordings. In addition, each patron will receive a mountable fine art poster by artist EK Waller, honoring "Take Your Time". Complementary, of course. Bassist Mike Barry and I produced the tracks and he will be on hand to play them with me, plus many other blues favorites.
Boulevard Music is an ideal venue for fans to enjoy great music in an intimate setting without distractions.
Admission is $20. Doors open at 7:30, show at 8:00. 4316 Sepulveda Blvd., at Culver. (310) 398-2583 BoulevardMusic.com
Friday, March 21 we will return to San Pedro's Alva's Music to celebrate the new CD. Mike, Al, saxophonist Bobby Spencer,
and myself will be on hand to play the blues for you. Each patron will be offered an EK Waller poster on the house.
In Alva's beautiful small amphitheater, we perform on a sunken dance floor, with great sound and lightning. People are
invited to bring in their own picnic and beverages of choice. Alva's is a San Pedro treasure that locals patronize in great
numbers. Our concert in the 100-seater last year sold out in advance. Buy in advance and get there early for best seating.
$20 admission. Doors open at 7:30, show at 8:00. 1417 W. 8th St., San Pedro 90732
