This weekend was a warm and wonderful time back in my hometown, catching up with family and friends. I had two opportunities to share my music. Saturday morning, I had the honor of playing on WRPI 91.5 FM with Harry Mandew. I got a recording of the show, and put the tracks up on my soundcloud page. Here is the version of Stupid Noah that I played, enlisting Harry’s help at the end:
Saturday evening, I played a show at Red Square in downtown Albany. For some reason, I have no photographs or videos of the show, although I did attempt to record it–I think my video camera memory was full. So, since I have no physical evidence of the evening, I will write a bit about it for posterity:
The first set was mostly original songs that will be on my album. The second set I did some originals–a few from my album a few that aren’t–and several covers including “Hallelujah,” “Someone Like You,” “Call me Maybe” and “Both Sides Now.” I also played my original song “Just Give a Jewish Guy a Try” by request. It’s probably my most requested song, and always requested by a non-Jewish friend!
In attendance were new and old friends from various points in my life. Some who have heard me play before, and others who were there for the first time. It was a warm, wonderful audience. I am so blessed to have people who support me by lending their evenings and ears to my music. Thank you so much to everyone who made it such a special night!
