One reason things are quiet around here is that this is the annual spring crush of performances for me. I hope to see you at a few of these:
• Friday, May 6, 8pm at the Coffee House: It's a food pantry benefit show called "The Day the Music Died," with me, Gary Kitchin, Basic Joe Holland, and Rich Morgan, Jerry Danks, and the Pardee Boys. We're doing songs written or made famous by artists who've died in air disasters. I'm doing song by both John Denver and Aaliyah, among others, so whatever your preferences, I've got you covered. Here's the facebook event page.
• Saturday, May 7, 8pm, also at the Coffee House: The Portage Road Songwriters Guild's 8th(!) Annual New Song Concert. It's hard to believe that Eric Baer, me, Chris Head, Mark Plotkin, Chris Straw, and Barb Webber have been doing this show and in this songwriters group for as long as we have. But we have! I've got a handful of new material, including at least one #wiunion song, for those of you who find that sort of thing appealing. Here's the facebook event page for that one.
• Sunday, May 8, 3pm AND Sunday May 15, 3pm, at Comedy Sportz Milwaukee: My CSz Rec League team We Fly Coach (undefeated so far this season!) has matches both of the next two weekends. Matches start at 2, 3, and 4pm every Sunday at CSz, and both days my team plays the middle match. This weekend we take on a former teammate David in his new team Brangelina's Children; next Sunday we face last season's second-place team Hot Mess. All matches are free!
• Thursday, May 12, 7pm, also at Comedy Sportz: Rec League Game-o-Matic show. Every season, the Rec League teams all invent new CSz games and debut them in front of adoring, screaming fans. The bar and restaurant are open, so come early for food and drink. This one's also free, and it, too, has a facebook event page.
