On 3/27/2020, about 2 weeks into the the Covid19 mandatory quarantine, I put together a new band, 'The Social Distance Club', to perform jazz concerts in our apartment complex courtyard, where cooped-up tenants could sip martinis and enjoy a little reprieve from the doldrums.  They watched us and listened to our music from their balconies and apartment windows, safely distant from us and each other.  Go to the video page here to see segments of our concert.  This was the first time I'd ever streamed LIVE on Facebook, but we managed to record our performance to friends across the country.  Folks dropped dollars and checks into a huge bucket a few feet from us, and those online sent Paypal and Venmo donations!  Wow!  The tenants LOVED US and WELCOMED the spiritual and psychological relief from the chaos.  The positive response was so compelling I am planning a The Balcony Tour in Apartment buildings in Santa Monica and Los Angeles for as long as the Pandemic lasts.  Photographer Renee Newberry filmed the entire 1 1/2 hours! (Joe Gaeta/G, Peter Marshall/B, Tony Jones/D)

Today, as fires rage just miles from our home here in Santa Monica, I head up the 405 to another mix session for my 2nd CD.  ....I cannot WAIT for you all to hear. 

UPCOMING SHOW booked for ....wait for my hometown, Providence RI.  That oughta give me ample time to prep, what'd'ya think?
