29th June 2013 | 0 Comments

I am three days away from my gig at City Winery NYC. I don’t feel panicked or super nervous, though I am sure those feelings will come in the final hours. I feel peaceful, excited and most importantly – prepared. Dare I say it? I can’t wait to show ‘em what I got! This journey [...]


The New York Chronicles: 36 Hours in the Big Apple, Part 3

25th June 2013 | 0 Comments

My last 12 hours of my 36-hour NYC stint to self-promote the Nina Simone show at City Winery NY was spent being treated to lunch and walking around as much as my knees would allow it. After flying in on no sleep, battling stairs, heat, and public transportation, I took a long nap followed by [...]

What an adventure! What a pain: 6AM flight on no sleep, buses, subways, steamy subway tunnels and finally a nice nap before I ventured out to embark on my mission – promoting my upcoming City Winery NY show.

The New York Chronicles: 36 Hours in the Big Apple, Part One.

21st June 2013 | 0 Comments

I had a 6AM flight. I did not sleep the night before and so I traveled to NYC on no sleep. I got picked up by a dear soul (my friend Lisa) who brought me “snacks for the plane!” who offered to come round for me at 4:30am. (I’d have to mention the other angel [...]

I depart for NYC tomorrow at 6AM. The plan is to go to the venue and get a feel for the room, the staff, the vibe and promote my show by handing out postcards at their outdoor music and wine festival featuring The English Beat.

We are entering the final stretch. My Musical Tribute to Nina Simone at City Winery NY is just a month away. I have gone through all kinds of panic over this show. Mostly, I have been traumatized over ticket sales but I have done much work thus far to promote this show. It has been [...]

My New York Club debut is just around the corner. I am performing my Nina Simone tribute on Tuesday, July 2 at City Winery NY. $15. I have 300 seats to fill. Today, my niece texted me. “30 tickets sold!” I was not very enthused even though the placement of her exclamation point seemed to [...]


I don’t want to go to Chelsea.

Actually, that is completely untrue. The title of this post is a line taken from an Elvis Costello tune that I remember from my college days. (My sophomore roomie at Northwestern was a punk music fan.) The truth is that I am very excited about going to Chelsea (New York’s West Village) for a day. [...]


Back to the Drake Hotel

Well, I guess it wasn’t just me and my loved one’s opinion.  Lynne Jordan & a Trio of Shivers done good.  The Drake has booked us for Friday nights through June and July.  Wow.  This is the start of my cabaret show development.  If I do this right and don’t screw up (meaning I keep [...]


Go See: New York, I Love You.

I just got home from the second installment in the “Cities of Love” Movies: “New York, I love You” Just like “Paris, Je T’aime” New York, I love You is a film featuring eight minute shorts directed by different director’s with an all-star cast. The texture of this film was grittier, more… you know… New [...]
