5-18-14 posterDave and my concert series, Readin’ N Rhythm, is extremely excited to return to Union Hall on Sunday, May 18th for A Tribute to the Everyday Things, a matinee show from 3-6 pm featuring award-winning writer Thomas Kennedy (Kerrigan in Copenhagen, In The Company of Angels), an incredibly smart, talented, and funny author gifted with an enchanting, musical reading style. He’ll be performing a track from his recent album, An Introduction, featuring dynamic interpretations of Danish writer Dan Turell’s poems set to music, along with some original poetry and fiction. Copies of his CD will be available for purchase.

The amazing tenor saxophonist Igor Lumpert will also be performing with his band, America I Really Like Your Shoes. One of our favorite New York groups, jazz fusion greats Sweetpro, will close out the afternoon.  For a taste of their style, check out an episode of Louis CK’s TV show Louie – that’s right, they’re his band. RnR house band The Brooklyn Players Reading Society will kick things off with a short set at 3 pm. $5 cover. Get your tickets in advance by clicking here.

The Yoni Gordon Orchestra

Huge thanks to The Yoni Gordon Orchestra (pictured), Muy Cansado, Dirty Dog Work, Union Hall and everyone who came out on Saturday.  The music rocked – we had a great time!  If you missed it, please enjoy our pictures on our RnR blog.  Thank you, Anthony Fine, for the good ones!

Movin’ On Up

ImageDave and I have left the kielbasa, perogies, superfund sites and hipsters of Greenpoint behind us and are now living in Lefferts Gardens only a block from Prospect Park (pictured).  The move was exhausting and all-consuming, as moves tend to be, and we sadly had to put our business and creative work on the back burner for awhile.  Now that we’re settled in, however, we’re psyched to make the final push with Readin’ N Rhythm Productions and officially launch it all soon.

Stay tuned!
