This Friday night in Red Hook I’ll be playing a very special show with Kate Giampetruzzi. Some of you may remember the wonderful shows I used to get to play as part of the Kate and Lou Band. Lou died in 2006, but as hard as it’s been, Kate has been singing and playing and writing some incredible songs. She’s going to perform some of them this Friday night at Sunny’s, in Red Hook, on a double bill with Tone Johansen, who runs Sunny’s and is also a gifted songwriter and singer (and jazz guitarist). They’ve assembled some of the city’s best musicians to play with them (I feel very fortunate to be playing with them) and it will be a very special night of music at what, despite all the changes, remains a very special bar.
Also, Sunday evening, I’ll be playing a blues/rock gig at the Greenwich Village Bistro with Saboteur Tiger. I don’t think it will be magical, but it’ll be a heck of a lot of fun.
