Roy & Lloyd's Happy Hour returns Friday, Oct 3rd

That's "Roy" as in Roy Nathanson (saxophonist and composer, leader of Sotto Voce and the Jazz Passengers, former member of the Lounge Lizards, collaborator with Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry, and many others). That's "Lloyd" as in me, the guy from the Deedle Deedle Dees and the sing-a-longs who also plays music for non-family audiences. Starting Oct 4th we're going to resume our weekly happy hours at Lark where we sing songs we love, tell stories, and just generally give you the time of your life. No "kids' music" specifically but the event is very kid-friendly, a great place to hang with your family -- or without your family -- to start the weekend.

Fridays 5-7
Lark Cafe

Grown-up music -- whatever that means

People at sing-a-longs and Deedle Deedle Dees concerts always ask if I do "grown-up" music or "music for adults."

I've never had a good online way of letting people know about these non-family projects so I'm finally starting this blog.

It's going to have news of my collaborations with saxophonist / composer Roy Nathanson, my evening performances with guys you might recognize from the Deedle Deedle Dees doing klezmer and R&B and bluegrass and other stuff, my sideman appearances with groups like Red Hook Ramblers, and other projects that are more difficult to categorize. Some of these shows I might put on my main calendar along with all the Deedle Deedle Dees and solo family shows. But this blog will be the one place where I put everything: little cafe shows, impromptu bar appearances, whatever.
