Woodstock Playhouse here we come!
Thrilled to play this historic venue w/ all-star band, on a double bill with the fabulous Danny Kean. FunknBluesnSoulnGroove times two!
I’ll be on the beautiful grand piano with an all-star band of friends and music family: Tinkr Barfield, Bernard “Pocket” Davis, Levi Barcourt and I have played with for years with Ashford & Simpson – it’s a real treat & music history to be all together for this concert. Percussionist Gary Fritz has played with everyone, we’re lucky he’s in town to play with us.
On vocals, get ready to hear the smooth & sultry tones of Alfa Anderson (Chic, Luther Vandross) and Dennis Collins (Roberta Flack, Luther Vandross). Alfa and Dennis sang with me at Joe’s Pub and I’m over the moon to hear our three voices together again. Jerome Buigues (guitar) and Nicolas Baudino (sax) are flying in from Paris! Both are phenomenal musicians, arrangers and Jerome is my co-writer on several songs. And for our first-ever concert in the USA with a horn section, I’m thrilled the uber-talented & prolific Steven Bernstein is joining us on trumpet. ALL-STARS! Look out!
