First single "Tell Me" from Dillon Fence live LP In Flagrante Delicto May 15! Summer dates

First single "Tell Me" from Dillon Fence Live LP In Flagrante Delicto May 15!
We're releasing the first single from our Dillon Fence live LP, In Flagrante Delicto to the streamers this Wednesday, May 15! Pre-save "Tell Me" here. This is a relatively new song for the band. I had recorded an acoustic version a while back; whenever I'd play it, I'd think "this sounds like it should be a Dilon Fence song."  Glad the fellas agreed and happy we included this rockin' version on our new live LP.

Tickets for our DF show with The Connells and Love Tractor at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, NC on Friday, July 19 are selling fast. The seated tickets are sold out, but as of this writing there are still lawn tickets available at this beautiful venue. Bring your blankets and/or folding chairs and come celebrate the release of In Flagrante Delicto with Scott Carle, Kent Alphin, Chris Goode and I! Get your advance tickets here.

Speaking of Dillon Fence, I recently read a compelling new book in which both DF and Hobex play a part. A Strange And Wonderful Time: The Chapel Hill Music Scene 1989 - 1999 was written by our friend Tom Maxwell (Squirrel Nut Zippers) and is available through Hatchette Books and other outlets. I know I’ll be reading it again, since it’s chock-full of illuminating interviews and information... I shared some of my initial thoughts on the book here.

Greg Humphreys & Friends – Spring & Summer Dates

Shows coming up! Playing the last 11th Street Bar residency show on Wednesday, June 5 before taking a summer break. I'll be joined by Andy Hess (John Scofield, Black Crowes, Gov't Mule) on bass guitar and Ethan Eubanks on the drum kit. My bud Rob Bailey will start the show with a set at 8 PM. The "& Friends" residency will pick up again at 11th St. this fall, beginning on Wednesday September 4; I have enjoyed mixing it up with some of New York's finest there this year.

Heading down to NC on Thursday, June 13 to play a solo set at The Corner on NCSU's Centennial Campus for That Station's Artist Notes concert series, hosted by That Station's own Chris Edge. Doing a June weekend in Stockbridge, MA at The Red Lion Inn – playing solo sets on Friday, June 21 and playing a special gig there with buds Johnny Irion and Mark Bryan (Hootie & The Blowfish) on Saturday, June 22. I'll be performing out on the east end of Long Island throughout the summer, both solo and with friends.
