Selected upcoming gigs of my own =
+ January 24: Tribute to Chef Jack Riebel at his restaurant The Lexington in St. Paul. Burt Bacharach is Chef’s favorite composer, and Vinnie Sperrazza and I will be in town for MMDG Pepperland, so we decided to bring out Marcy Harriell and reprise our fabulous NYE set. Completing the band will be local legend Erik Fratzke on bass.
+ January 25: Mark Morris Dance Group, Pepperland at Northrop Auditorium, Minneapolis. (Bonus track: Sarah Deming reads from Gravity at Red Balloon in St. Paul earlier that day.)
+ January 30 and 31: Mark Morris Dance Group, Pepperland at Cullen Theater, Houston.
+ February 8: Mark Morris Dance Group, Pepperland at Muriel Kauffman Theatre, Kansas City, Missouri
February 13-29: Martin Speake quartet UK tour.
