Stoked to play at Connie's Ric Rac's all day, outdoor/indoor 10th year reunion party tomorrow!! The first time I ever played an open mic in Philly in 2006 Frank Joseph Tartaglia brought me down to the future Ric Rac site and we sang songs all night with Joseph Joe Brown Tartaglia, Danielle Miraglia, Katie Barbato, Rob Ogus, and some other all stars. It was the night I met Joshua Larson, Scott Ratinoff, and many other rockstars! It was the night I was christened with my South Philly nickname Danny Scalopine - it was the night my Philly music career began. Hope you guys come join the party, it's gonna be a blast!!!
