—————-TONY SOUL PROJECT NEWS——————

                         (what? no copy last week?? JET LAG)
March 29 – April 4 The Nashville invasion of Tony Soul. What a trip. 7 jams in 5 days. Just terrific. Stayed with Doak Turner with deluxe accommodations. Weather was 70-80 all week. Thanks to Dana, John & Cara for setting me up to meet and jam with some of the nicest folks around. Nashville rocks, if you have not, you have to go. I am planning a return trip as we speak.
Sat., April 4, a few hours off the plane, joined Jeff Purchon at ACT 4 formerly Jamison’s in Lowell for a set to kick off this new venue. Place has potential., stay tuned.
Sunday - BMan’s 140 Tavern with a full horn section and a full house for our Easter Sunday Spectacular. The 140 rocks, one of our most favorite hangs on a Sunday afternoon.
Monday 4/6, The Tradesman in Milford to jam with Chris Terp, Dana Bonardi and a cast of thousands. The T breathes on a Monday night. Steak baby
Friday Night 4/10 – Main Streets Cafe in Concord. This place gets a rap for being small but just turn everything down and there you have it, a wonderful night. Brett Brumby and Jon Golden joined the Project along with guests Leslee Christopher, Amanda Carr, Ken Hickey & Ellie, the birthday girl. Just a great night. We will be back
Saturday Night – American Legion in Winchendon – huge bike rally but the bikers were partying all day and little left for us and the dance floor. It was mystifying. We were told before the show, by the President of the Club that “these people love to dance”?? After they ate dinner, they settled in, sat and never got up. We tried everything. Oh well, next time, maybe a bit earlier. These folks were all done by 9:00 but we still had fun
Sunday Afternoon – DUNNY’s TAVERN in East Brookfield. Now, this is a hot spot in central MA. Paul Provost heads one of the finest jam sessions anywhere. Mikey and I love playing here. Place is always hopping with folks and fine musicians. Johnny, Becky, Paul, Wally, great harmonies. We will plan a return in late summer/early fall. Glenn and Ronnie are as solid as they come.
 
The Tony Soul Project is OFF April 13 to April 23. (Grandson’s Birthday party out west)
 
Upcoming April Dates:
4/24 – Point Breeze in Webster with Brett Brumby & Ron Ouimette
4/25 – TRADESMAN in Milford
4/26 – TS features at CELLEY’s PUB in LYNN 7:00

TONY SOUL PROJECT NEWS

Coming To You Live from Nashville

Tony Soul Project is on vacation this week!! What?? Yes, Tony Soul is hitting the hot spots in Nashville, meeting a whole lot of new people and hooking up with some friends who have moved down here from up North. The scene down here is crazy. The talent is amazing, all genres. Venues have music from 11am to 3am, like every day. Folks are real friendly and they like my accent. Here’s what we did last week and what we have coming up.

Last Week

Friday Night at FIREFLY’s in Marlborough. By all accounts, the best show we have ever put together. We were joined by the 4 Valvatross horn players and Alexandria Bianco. We had 12 humans on stage at once in the second set, all getting along. Adam Signore shot some great video and has posted it on Facebook, just great
Saturday Night – unCommon Place in Bellingham. What do you know, more snow. I know it kept folks away but for those who braved the elements once more, thank you. This could turn into a very nice venue.
