CD Release Party!

Val Avatar

My CD Release party will be on Saturday December 6th from 7-10pm at the Horse Radish in Carlton, and all are welcome!

Some details… The first hour or so will be three 15-20 minute sets by my musical guests. Then I’ll play from ~8:15 to 10pm, with Tim Connell, Theresa Riccardi, and possibly another musical guest (TBA!) If you are on Facebook, you can check out the CD Release event page, as that is where I’ll be posting updates leading up to 12/6.

Awaken Jane is a new group, founded by Emily Jones and Jamie Corff, who recently asked me to join them on bass, mandolin, and harmony vocals. Two Spirit Jazz (Suzanne Callaway on vocals/guitar and Theresa Riccardi on drums) have been performing around the Portland area at wineries, restaurants and private parties for several years, and they will be playing a few vocal jazz covers and originals. And I’m very pleased that Tim Connell will also be performing a solo set. Tim has played with Rio Con Brio, Stumptown Swing, Mando Planet and Alexandra Coutinho, and is a virtuosic mandolin player.

There is no cover for this event, but there is a $5 minimum purchase per person. Check out The Horse Radish for more details and to see their menu.

Carlton is having some Christmas-related activities going on that day and into the early evening (including their tree lighting). If you are planning to attend the CD Release, you may be interested in finding out more (in case you’d like to attend, or so that you can plan to get to Carlton a bit early to find parking!) You can check out the new Facebook page Christmas in Carlton for more details.

The CD release party will be the only place to get my CDs until the official release date (1/5/15), so if you are looking for some musical holiday gifts, this will be your chance! I’ll also have mugs, bags and t-shirts (photos coming soon…)

I hope to see you there!
