So, here's the schedule for Tracy Newman and the Reinforcements over the next few weeks:
Friday, Feb 22, 7:00 to 10:00PM, we're playing a Vietnamese restaurant in Northridge called Pho-King Delicious! (9350 Corbin Ave, Northridge, 91324.) How do they get away with that name? The show starts at 7:00 with the unique Bryan Chan and Jim Eaton. Then Trout Davis, Rejyna, then us, at 9:15. Just me, Gene Lippmann and our alternate singer, Paula Fong. (Rebecca has another gig. Get her terrific debut CD: "Self-Loathing & Self-Satisfaction!") Maybe John Cartwright will be joining us on bass, as well. It depends on whether he and his stand up bass will fit under the over-hang above the stage at Pho-King! We love our job.
Tuesday, Feb 26, 8:00-10:30, we're in Laguna at Beth Fitchet Wood's Songwriter Showcase at the Marine Tavern on Ocean Ave. Beth is amazing. She's the only player I know who covers the remarkable Shaun Cromwell! She can do his style! We usually go on after Beth, around 8:30. The other players: Don Swanson and Lon Milo Duquette.
Saturday, March 2, (noon) International Hypnosis Federation lunchtime show at the Double Tree Hilton in San Pedro. We did this last year, as well. Just the trio - Gene, Rebecca and I. Shelley Stockwell-Nicholas puts this together. We're part of a weekend conference.
Saturday, March 9, 8-10, Kulak's Woodshed in North Hollywood. I'll send a flyer about this one later on. We're doing the whole two hours, and it will be webcast simultaneously!
And I'll be at the Talking Sick on Thursday, March 14, with Anna Montgomery and Fur Dixon. "Single Ladies Song Circle!" More about that later!
