Hey all! Just a quick and dirty blog post to let you all know about something I'm very excited about: the band and I have ourselves a weekly residency at a new/old venue in Lowell called The Last Safe and Deposit.
Anyone who was involved in the Lowell music scene back in the late 1980s and early 90s will remember "The Safe" as it was called by loyal patrons as being a hot spot for live music. Local legendary hip hop artist and producer D-TENSION has worked hard to bring back The Safe, and he asked lil ol ME to host a weekly JAZZ/FUNK JAM SESSION on WEDNESDAY NIGHTS, beginning THIS WEDNESDAY AUGUST 13th at 8 PM.
For the first hour, my TRIO ("COWBOY" BEN ALMAN on BASS, and "SUPERFREAK" ZEKE MARTIN on DRUMS) will jam out and do our thing, then after that we will have musicians sign up and take to the stage with us to throw down on your favorite funkified jazz standards.
I would like to cordially invite each and every one of you to come down and hang with us, wether you want to bring your axe and sit in or just chill and check out the grooves. Either way its sure to be a funky good time for all!
