SPCO gig at West

On January 27, the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth, I hosted four musicians from the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra at West Publishing's facility in Eagan, MN. They played Franz Schubert's string quartet "Death and the Maiden", and turned in a fabulous performance, with Ruggero Allafrancini and Nina Fan on violin, Sabina Thatcher on viola, and Joshua Koestenbaum on cello. Many thanks to the 150 or so who attended, and special thanks to those who bought tickets for upcoming SPCO events.

On Friday January 6th, I played guitar with the Mike Hachey Band on at the Saint Paul University Club, using my Gibson Les Paul Elegant through a Fender Princeton Chorus. Songs included "Summer Samba", "Stella By Starlight", "All Blues", "My Foolish Heart" and "Oleo." Jerry Shelton of Rennieworks played trumpet, with Ron Peterson (keys), Brian Morrow (bass) and Mike Hachey (drums).
