People of New York! I am delighted to announce that my first full band show since landing in NYC will be in the wonderful Arlene’s Grocery on Wednesday, February 23rd at 9pm. Located at 95 Stanton Street in the lower east side, Arlene’s has seen the likes of R.E.M, Jeff Buckley and the Strokes perform within their walls, so I am really looking forward to this one. Gonna get some nice rehearsals with my dear friends Kenny, Jacob and Rob this week, which will be a lot of fun. Last time I played Arlene’s it was the summer of 09 and I cant wait to play it again.
In other news I played a sweet gig on Wednesday past in the Delancey (on Delancey st.). It was an all acoustic affair, with some fine singer-songwriters on the bill. I was delighted to be asked to play, and I had the tough job of opening up the show… i will hopefully have some footage/sounds from the show very soon for those of you who couldn’t make it down. Huge thanks however to the people who did come along, and also to my new friend Sandy Irani for giving me the slot on the bill.
Rock on good people.
John 🙂 xo
