It's been a little while since we were together, singing songs! Looking forward to this Friday at Ashland Coffee & Tea, opening for Roosevelt Dime!

Really excited for this one!

"Welcome to the world of Roosevelt Dime, a five-piece, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based band that blends elements of acoustic jug-band blues, classic New Orleans soul and neo-folk to create an original sound best described as Kings County Steamboat Soul. The band's nontraditional line-up and seamless mixture of musical genres has been described as "a perpetual crowd-pleaser" by the New York Times."
