First, I am honored to have performed with Patti Smith and her Band in Detroit at the Majestic Theatre last night, September 7, 2013. Playing guitar and singing backup on three great songs – “Banga,” “People Have the Power,” and “Talkin’ ’bout my Generation” – it was really great to perform with Patti and her band again – they were wonderful. It was a stellar welcome back night for me, as I’ve been recuperating after a major health issue; things are looking up! And with our new CD releases coming up this fall, we are looking forward to performing in Detroit at the Majestic Café/WDET-FM Ann Delisi’s Essential Music Listening Party on Tuesday night, October 15th. We’re also performing an acoustic set treat at the fantastic Mackinac Island Music Festival in October. Then our full band plays back at a new favorite, Bachelor’s One Tavern in Keego Harbor for 2 nights in November. We’ve got a tour beginning next year which includes Chicago, Detroit, northern Michigan shows and possibly Europe again for 2014.
