I’m very happy to be heading back to New Orleans this week to play at one of my favorite clubs in the whole world, Snug Harbor. It is almost exactly 20 years ago that I moved to New Orleans to attend UNO and to study with Ellis Marsalis and Harold Battiste. I was sitting in with Ellis at Snug Harbor as often as I could, and I will always be grateful to him for the opportunity and to the club for giving us the space to grow on the bandstand. There are very few opportunities for that kind of apprenticeship learning these days, which only increases my feeling of gratitude. Joining me will be me another mentor of mine from that time, guitar legend Steve Masakowski, as well as old friends Jason Stewart, James Westfall and Kendrick Scott. Our sets are at 8pm and 10pm. We’ll be playing music from my latest Criss Cross release, “It’s You I Like” as well as tunes from “By A Thread” and others. Come by and tell your friends!
