    Chieli,
    Congrats on the new upcoming CD! Those who have enjoyed your musical journey
    anxiously await its arrival. If a tour is to follow may I be so bold as to recommend a few spots in Northern California for your consideration. Yoshi’s in Oakland (a well established jazz club that has been supporting live music for over 30 years) Blue Note in Napa (brand new outlet of the famous world wide club) San Jose Jazz Festival (2.5 day out door festival in the downtown park) SF Jazz Center (Hayes Valley venue built exclusively for jazz performance and education) I hope you take this into consideration as I suggest them with a self serving purpose, I am geographically situated to attend any of these shows! Hope to see you in 2017!
    Cheers!!!

      Jeff, thanks for your note! Coincidentally the bands agent is working on booking those very clubs for a possible May date, this week! If we are so lucky to make the tour work you will see it advertised on the website and Facebook. Have a great day!
