The NAIL-ing List: Neil Alexander's News & Happenings from the world of NAIL

Welcome to the February 2017 issue of 

The NAILing List

Neil Alexander's Performances, Workshops and other bits...
Ah February.... that time of year when you just know - even though it's still cold out - that Spring is on it's way, for real. The days are getting longer, and even the sun comes out now and again. January ended up being crazy busy, with multiple projects popping up all over the place - like the Funk Facilitators, which returns to the Falcon this month. Lots of other things are brewing, including a spring workshop series, new solo performances and more; plus Decora's big CD release show on Feb 16th at Lincoln CenterOnce again I am truly grateful for so many great opportunities. Here's what's up February:

What can I say? This is gonna be one of THOSE shows - NOT to be missed. Decora's amazing words and delivery - with a stellar backup band including guitarist Dylan Doyle, bassist Sam Smith, drummer Lee Falco, the twin talents  DJ H20 and Trumaster Tru, with Jon Powell & Nicole Davis on trumpets and Joey Ray and Shay Leonia on backup vocals. Choreography by Nina Johnson, and extra special sonic magic by the one and only Ryan Ball.
