FUNERAL BONSAI WEDDING

I am working on a new recording project with the amazing Funeral Bonsai Wedding: Frank Rosaly on drums, Jason Roebke on bass and Jason Adasiewicz on vibraphone. We begin recording in late February and will continue through March and April. The songs are mostly written. We play Sunday Feb 16 at Simon’s and we’ll debut a bunch of the new stuff there. I’m very excited about this project, it will be unlike anything I’ve ever done and I am lucky and grateful to have these brilliantly gifted musicians join me. We play Saturday, April 12 at the Old Town School of Folk Music as well.
