A few years ago I fell in love with a song from 1940 called The Java Jive.  The version I love is performed by the Ink Spots.  I had never even heard of the Ink Spots before that. The love of that song and my determination to learn it on the bass while also singing, lead me down a path that has been both challenging and super-duper rewarding.  I proceeded to listen to tons of songs from way-back to find the particular ones that moved me.  After much practicing alone (not always so fun for a bass player to play alone:)  I am able to meet my band of seasoned pros for a three set evening of songs that date twenty years before and after Java Jive.  I have had so much fun and now I am in love with every single tune that we play for this show…what a gift these old songs are.

Backing me up on guitar, drums, trombone and trumpet are The Most Excellent Fellows, a rousing and rotating group of some of the Twin Cities finest players… Chris Beaty, Ken Chastain, Michael Nelson, Richard Medek, Greg Lewis, Greg Schutte, Steve Wagner, Tim Zhorne, Pete Enblom, Andy Vaaler, Peter Vircks and Dan Eikmeier.  I am grateful for their willingness to lend their expertise and good vibes!  Thanks to sweet old tunes, the Most Excellent Fellows, and my total enjoyment of sharing these gems, we have a pretty lovely live show to offer!
