Lovely day here in NYC. Sharing a new music video with you that I made recently for the song "Across The Ocean, Mama," which is the third track on BOHEMIA. As I told my friend Chris Peeler, it was very hard to train the birds to fly backwards. You can set the youtube player at 720p for HD viewing pleasure.
By the way, BOHEMIA is here! Buy the album on iTunes here. Purchase a hard copy via PayPal here. Have a listen online here or here. I will of course have copies for sale at my upcoming shows, including my official BOHEMIA album release party at The Double Door Inn in Charlotte, NC on Thursday June 6th. Which leads me to...
HOBEX IN CHARLOTTE, WINSTON-SALEM
HOBEX is back on the prowl for two North Carolina shows in early June. We'll be playing our first club show in a long time on Thursday, June 6, at one of the first venues to ever host the band: Charlotte NC's legendary Double Door Inn. I'll be playing a short acoustic set to open the show; as I mentioned, this show will be the official NC album release party for my latest solo LP, BOHEMIA. We'll be bringing an all-star big band for the HOBEX set: bassist Andy Ware, keyboardist Doug Largent, drummer Dan Davis, saxophonist Tim Smith, and percussionist Robert Cantrell. Here's the FB event page, if you'd like to RSVP or invite friends to the show.
The following day, Friday, we'll be bringing the band to Winston for the Texas Pete Twin City Rib Festival. If you know your hot sauce or you know your Dash, you already know that Texas Pete is somewhat incongruously made in Winston-Salem. Friday is Funk & Soul day at the Fest, so prepare to be grooved. Our HOBEX set will be on the Main Stage at 9:30pm, near the intersection of 6th Street and Marshall, following sets by The Deluge and The Low Counts.
