September 1st gig
Last Friday was September 1st, so I played the "First Friday" gig with the Mike Hachey Band at the University Club of Saint Paul. The core band is Mike Hachey (drums), Ron Peterson (keys), and Bruce Morrow (bass). Guest vocalist was Jessie Shelton, with father Jerry Shelton on trumpet and self sitting in on electric guitar. We played two sets of jazz standards, including "Four", "Summertime", "Wave", "Freddie the Freeloader" and other numbers from the Real Book. I used my Ibanez AF105F through a Carvin tube amp (again). I have at least two other gigs coming up this month: an Employeer Giving Campaign event at West Publishing in Eagan with the Jazzkickers, and a Caterwaul appearance at the French Press Jazz Cafe in Saint Paul on September 22nd.
