Carnival @ The Independent

It’s not often that you can use the words ‘bluegrass’ ‘baseball’ ‘juggling’ and ‘San Francisco’ in the same sentence, but I just did and it feels pretty liberating.  Curated annually by Nat Keefe of Hot Buttered Rum, this year’s “Concert Carnival” at The Independent on Thurs Dec 19 will feature members of Railroad Earth, Hot Buttered Rum, and even SF Giants 3rd base skipper and guitarist Tim Flannery.  I’m excited to join these and many other great musicians, performers, and entertainers in this eclectic cast.  Advance tix recommended.

Year of The Mule

Although 2013 is widely considered the Year of the Snake, it’s been a hell of a ride for ungulates too.  SUPERMULE has had a tremendous debut year with the release of a new EP, capacity shows at great Bay Area venues such as The Great American Music Hall and The Chapel, and a capstone performance at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park (footage below).  Be sure to check us out in 2014… it’s the Year of The Horse, close enough.

High Tech Duel

There’s no better economic barometer than that of the Holiday Party- and based on my recent “Dueling Banjo’s” performance with Bill Evans at the San Jose Fairmont, Silicon Valley clearly seems to be doing well again.  Multiple ballrooms with bands, DJ’s, gambling, sushi boats, open bar… you remember that Price-Is-Right segment where a contestant is in a phone booth and there’s money flying around inside?  There was one of those.  Our set in “The Casino” was a hit, and people were cheering boisterously during our solos- or was that coming from the craps table?
