It’s that time of the month – Jade Lounge here we come

It’s the 4th Wednesday of the month, which means the Jade Lounge band I’m in will be prepping the stage, or in this case the sofa, for some very special guests.  A group called The Better Halves will play an hour long set at 8pm.

You just never know what might happen when a group of music enthusiasts combine their talents to see what happens.

It all starts at 7pm.  Stop on by the Jade Lounge 2342 SE Ankeny St Portland, OR 97214.

 

Music while shopping for natural bedding

Beautiful day to be playing music for the folks at Cotton Cloud Natural Bedding in NE Portland. Super nice folks and easy on the eyes store layout.  Played for all kinds of patrons of all ages.  A fun two hours spent on this Saturday.  Cover songs from Billy Joel, Elton John, Beatles, Elvis, Van Morrison, Jimmy Buffet along with some originals from my album, “In Those Days,” done acoustically.  However, any time I performed with the ukelele, that got the best crowd reaction.

Awesome Night at Torta-Landia

Great crowd, nice evening with the garage door open letting in all the summer warmth into the restaurant.  Folks seemed to enjoy some the classic oldies I did with my own twist to them along with some of my originals.  Really connected with those listening.  Great vibe in that place.  Hope to come back again, soon.

Elton John Tribute this Wednesday at the Jade Lounge

Legion of Ambiguity

Reginald Kenneth Dwight was his birth name.  He is now known at Sir Elton Hercules John, and we’ll be paying tribute to his music this Wednesday evening at the Jade Lounge beginning at 7pm.  

Come enjoy the intimacy of the Jade along with some special guests who will be pounding out their own renditions of Elton’s music.

Would love to see you there.

That Was Fun!!

Wednesday evening at the Jade Lounge in SE Portland was a complete success.  Here is a picture of the band: Left to right: Doug McCleary, Cynthia O’Brien, moi and John Hasenjaeger.  We were given the band name, “Legion of Ambiguity.”  We kinda like it.

Legion of AmbiguityThe plan is to return next month on March 26.  I’ll keep you posted.
