For this gig, I'll be joining Kevin and Carol Hearle along with Robb Mapou to play a number of Jazz standards on stage at the Hop'N Uke Fest.
The festival is from 12p - 10p. We are on stage at 630p.
Adventure Brewing Company 33 Perchwood Drive #101, Fredericksburg, Virginia 22405
I've been in the Monday 615p group since October or so and this Sunday we will be one of the featured groups that get to perform a set.
There are usually 2 performance sets on the last Sunday at Epicure Cafe. 7pm is the first set, but my group's set is at 8pm!
The music is Jazz in a small-group combo, all instrumental and heavily improvisational. If you're a swing-dancer it's way more bebop-y than what we're used to on the dance floor and the songs run a bit long for dancing. (also note, Epicure isn't setup for dancing, it's more of a listening/dining room)
Our lineup is:
Steve Halter on Trumpet
Patrick Fazzone on Mandolin
Mark Glassman on Guitar
Larry Smith on Piano
John Goss on Drums
Franco on Bass (me)
If you're from town or in-town, this is a good chance to come see what I've been working on! Message me if you have any questions.
