Billy Novick,  Hello Cape Ann- I’m playing at the Franklin Cape Ann in Gloucester on Tuesday, May 7th, 7-11, with Bob Nieske. And I actually do remember when we last played there (two weeks ago) and I certainly remember what I had to eat then (the most delicious chicken, and the best French fries in the world). Hope to see you there! And just wait until next month- I expect to be playing on three isthmuses with three different trios!

Live music at the Franklin!!
