On Thursday, April 25th I’m taking the Path Train to the Grove St. Station in Jersey City to play a solo gig at the Atlas Public House. Every Thursday from 7:30 to 9:30 my friends Joey Kelly and Jimmy McElligott host a night of music in the very comfortable back room there. Great sound, food and drink. On the bill with me is Jana Peri. The Atlas is only a few stops on the Path Train so I hope you’ll get on board and head over to Jersey for an evening of music, food and fun!

I’m playing at the Brooklyn waterfront in Red Hook Sunday, June 11, from 2 to 4pm as part of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition (BWAC) music series. Check out their website for tons of information on all the things they do there to support the arts and make Red Hook such a great destination place. http://bwac.org Right next to Fairway and close to IKEA I’m performing in a space that is well used by musicians and artists alike. Come early and enjoy the very cool restaurants, bars, shops, garden centers and art galleries around the waterfront or just enjoy the view of New York Harbor and a little music.
Get there by bike - my favorite, or even better yet by a free water taxi that leaves from Pier 11 at Wall Street in lower Manhattan and 20 minutes later delivers you to Red Hook just a few minutes walk from BWAC. Here is information on the water taxi.https://www.nywatertaxi.com/ikea Driving is another good option. Please check out this link for directions by car as well as subway and bus info: http://bwac.org/visit/
The address is BWAC Exhibition Space, 499 Van Brunt St. 2ND FLOOR, Red Hook, Brooklyn. As if I haven’t given you enough links to click on already here is the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BWAC.ART/?fref=nf Like it and come!
Hope to share a little of your Sunday with you and thanks for your support!
